    Psalms – Among, Around, Before, Beside, and Above

     

    There is one beside us in everything we do

    He is there to guide us when we cry to him anew

    In our times of trouble, we fall on bended knee

    Oh, Lord come, swiftly come and rescue me

     

    There is one before us; a mighty Judge and King

    Wisdom for all nations In love his Law he brings

    And to those who love him from ages thro all time

    The Lord comes. He swiftly comes, His Light to shine.

     

    There is one around us, whose faithfulness grows old

    Who led us out of Egypt to a land that was foretold

    Through our generations You have watched us from above

    Oh, Lord come, swiftly come…we need your love

     

    There is one above us who rules throughout the land

    We worship him and praise him eat manna from his hand

    We praise the Lord who reigns above and call upon his name

    Oh, Lord come, swiftly come…our hearts to claim

     

    There is one among us…our savior and our Lord

    We sing your praise and bless you in love you are Adored

    To you O Lord we give our thanks for everything you’ve done

    Oh, Lord come, swiftly come…our day is done

Story

This is probably the first Psalm in scripture (if not the first then one of the first).  It occurs shortly after Miriam's and Aaron death and is Moses' lament to God while recognizing the greatness of our Sovereign King.  

Lyrics

Psalm 90 – Prayer Of Moses

 

You have been our refuge, Forever and a day

Before the land was formed; Before the sea was born      

Forever you are God 

 

Swept away by water; We are like a dream

Like the grass renewed; In the mornings dew

By night it fades away

 

REF

 

In your steadfast love…have pity on your children

Our sins we lay before you, secrets only you knew

Let your love rest on us

 

Hear our cries O Lord, our lives are filled with sorrow

The number of our days, so quickly fade away

We long for your Love 

 

Return, O child of man; your time of watch is over

The ending of your days it’s time to fly away

To the hands of your God

 

REF

 

Teach us to live…to turn our hearts to wisdom

We’ll rejoice and be glad, no longer will be sad

Let your love rest on us

Lyrics

Psalm 15  Who shall dwell n your Holy hill?

 

Who can dwell on your holy hill?  Is it I oh, Lord?

Who am I to abide with you? A simple man of your Word.

 

In my heart do I speak the truth for everyone to see?                    

Do I love my friends and hold them near to me?

Do I honor those who fear the Lord?    

Oh   no,    Not   me   Oh   no,  Not    me

 

Do I walk within your Light working deeds for your delight?

Do I speak Your truth?  And stand with those upright?

Do I know my heart and fear my God

Oh   no,    Not   me    Oh   no,  Not    me

 

There is one who died for us and He gave the world His light

He led me through this darkness to His Word

Now I know on your Holy Hill, I will live one day

Yes Lord.  It’s me

Come, Lord.  For me

 

Yes Lord.  It’s me

Come, Lord.  For me

Lyrics

  Psalm 92 – Song for the Sabbath

 

It is good to praise the Lord  make music to His name,

proclaiming His love in the morning and His faithfulness at night,

For you make me glad O Lord I sing for all you’ve done

How great are your works, profound your thoughts: but fools will never know

 

They turn away from you, and the darkness over comes

Like the weeds in the fields that ever grow…soon they will be gone

And then the time will come…when your Light will rule the world

And we will shout your name out loud and sing a joyful song

 

And now I sing your song, with joy I call your name

You are my rock, my guiding light…evermore my God

Soon the seeds will all bear fruit…fine oils poured over me

For my God stands strong for evermore His children all set free

 

It is good to praise the Lord make music to His name,

proclaiming His love in the morning and His faithfulness at night,

For you make me glad O Lord I sing for all you’ve done

How great are your works, profound your thoughts: and I gladly call your name
