Revelation Song

Today, I have little of my own to say. Over the past week, there has been a song that I can't get out of my head. Mainly, because three little girls kept singing it! It seems my daughter in law has a CD with "Revelation Song" on it and my granddaughters have decided it is one of their favorite songs - so they sang it this past week over and over...and over...and over. Tonight, as I thought about the scripture the song was derived from I realized, that is exactly what the angels aroung the throne were doing - singing His praise over and over again. The words to the song are from the book of Revelation. The title alone implies that God was revealing something about Himself to us. I'm just not sure we really get it...His holiness...His majesty...His glory. The rest of today's entry will be song lyrics and scripture. I would encourage you to meditate on the characteristics of God revealed in them and worship Him for who He is.

"Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come.
With all creation I sing praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything - and I will adore You."     Revelation Song

"Lift up your heads, O you gates;
be lifted up you ancient doors,
that the King of Glory may come in.
Who is this King of Glory?
The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O you gates;
Lift them up, you ancient doors,
That the King of Glory may come in.
Who is He this King of Glory - the Lord Almighty
                      He is the King of Glory"       Psalm 24:7-10

"Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty who was and is and is to come." Rev. 4:8

"You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things and by your will they were created and have their being." Rev. 4:11

"Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!" Rev. 5:12

"To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power forever and ever!" Rev. 4:13

"The four living creatures said, 'Amen' and the elders fell down and worshipped." Rev. 4::14

Dear Lord - Give us such a revelation of Yourself today that there is nothing left for us to say but "Amen" and all we can do is fall down and worship. Thank You, Jesus.
