One of my very favorite choirs in the entire world is the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. If you ever find yourself in NYC over a weekend, it is WELL worth a trip over to Brooklyn to experience a worship service in this amazing church.
Today, our choir sang one of their songs, “Thou Oh Lord.”
#slowitdownSunday and take 5 minutes to listen (I’m sorry for the lyrics in a foreign language, it’s the only video of this song that I could find on youtube).
The lyrics from this song are taken directly from Psalm 3 (AMP):
1 Lord, how they are increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.
2 Many are saying of me, There is no help for him in God. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
4 With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
5 I lay down and slept; I wakened again, for the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me round about.
7 Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheek; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongs to the Lord; May Your blessing be upon Your people. Selah!
