A Saturday Morning Soldier's/Servant's Song


Discouragement can hit any day of the week, any season of the year...
we must battle it, but not alone!


Sing to the one who precedes us in battle
He who has called us to trust and obey
Will not forsake us ; our Father is faithful
The God of the old is the God of today

Praise Him; Mercy still withholds Judgement’s vengeance
Grace still presides over mankind’s ado
Forgiveness flows from the Rose of redemption
The God of the old is the God of the new

Worship HE, with whom all things are possible
Enter His courts with thanksgiving and praise
Fear He whose power can cast the soul into hell
Fear not the fool who scorns His holy ways

Confirm your sacred calling and election
Approach His throne where groan and joy are wed
Bow before He, the Lord of earth and Heaven
For He is the God of both living and dead

Shout to the Lord all ye earth and its people
With one accord let awe’s melody blend
Sing to He whose love and law is eternal
Alpha, Omega, Beginning and End

Sing to the one who precedes us in battle
He who has called us to trust and obey
Will not forsake us ; our Father is faithful
The God of the old is the God of today

Psalm 98:4-9  (NLT)

Shout to the Lord, all the earth;
    break out in praise and sing for joy!
Sing your praise to the Lord with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song,
with trumpets and the sound of the ram’s horn.
    Make a joyful symphony before the Lord, the King!
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
    Let the earth and all living things join in.
Let the rivers clap their hands in glee!
    Let the hills sing out their songs of joy
before the Lord,
    for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with justice,
    and the nations with fairness.
