Declare God’s Faithfulness

“5The heavens praise your wonders, Lord,
your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones.

6For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord?
Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings?

7In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared;
he is more awesome than all who surround him.

8Who is like you, Lord God Almighty?
You, Lord, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.” ~Psalm 89

The sky grey
The sky blue
The sky black and glittering with stars
Shining moonlight in the heavens
The sky grey
The sky blue
The sky smeared with dazzling colors
The bright sun in the heavens
They all declare the glory of God
Will the sky be there on the morrow?
Will it utterly fall away?
Yet we do not fear
It is faithfully there
Declaring the faithfulness of the Lord
Declaring the glory of God

And the angels who watch us
They are there in the sky
The being that cause humans to tremble
Who raise swords of fire
And stand in the very presence of the LORD–
They, it is true, are holy
But they do not compare to our God
They, even they, must cover their faces
Even they tremble in His presence
And they ever sing to God praise
They ever glorify the King of Kings
They sing of the Lord’s faithfulness
To all generations
Hallelujah!
And Amen!

I will sing
Of the Lord
He is faithful
He is good
I will sing
Of the Lord
He is loving
He is true

“1In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”

4At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.” ~Isaiah 6

10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” ~Luke 2

“2At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. 3And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. 4Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. 5From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God. 6Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.

In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. 7The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. 8Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“ ‘Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,’
who was, and is, and is to come.”

9Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

11“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.” ~Revelation 4
