My Holy Holy Holy Lord

My Rock, oh Lord,

You are my firm ground

My faithful God

In You, I pray, will I trust

Your holiness

Fills the air everywhere

Holiness

That I long to embrace

Terror I have

When forced to face Your throne

In You I do trust

With You I cannot falter

But still You

Are so holy

And I am so dirty

I hear the Saraphim sing

“Holy Holy Holy”

And I feel my heart

It withers inside me

I cannot live on

So sinful is Your servant, Lord

My mouth is unclean

And Your people care so little

Woe is me!

I am undone!

But Holy Holy Holy

The Lord Almighty nods

I do not see what goes on

I am prostrate before the Lord

The Seraphim lifts my head

And a white, hot, holy coal

This he places on my mouth

This cleans my lips

This burns me to no more evil words

This blessing from the Lord

“Holy Holy Holy!”

He is my firm foundation

He is who I will trust

In Him was I created

He can destroy me

He will not forsake me

His perfect plan will not fail

Let my mouth be filled with

Praises for my loving,

Terrifying,

Holy Holy Holy Lord

Amen!

“1In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
2Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he did fly.
3And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
4And the posts of the door were shaken at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
6Then flew one of the seraphim unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
7And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.” ~Isaiah 6

“7The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. 8The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. 9The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous. 10They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. 11By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
12But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. 13Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression.
14May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” ~Psalm 19

My Meditation: 2 Peter 1:3

How often

Do we feel like

We can’t make it

Through this life

Will we really receive

Everything we need

To survive?

Will we be good enough

To accomplish anything

Anything at all?

Will we live lives full of purpose

Or will we live only to die?

~

Do you know the LORD?

Do you know who He is?

He called you not

For how good or accomplished you were

Or are

But because He is glorious

Because of His goodness

He’s called you

Because of who He is

Called you to know the LORD

~

How many times

Do we cry out

Feeling so ashamed?

We feel like

We can never

Stand in the footsteps

Of the Savior

Can we lift up hands

Like His holy hands?

Can we have faith

That moves mountains?

Can we ever stand in

The Divine Presence

And ever hear the words

“Well done,

Good and faithful servant”?

~

Do you know the LORD?

Do you know who He is?

He called you not

For how good or accomplished you were

Or are

But because He is glorious

Because of His goodness

He’s called you

Because of who He is

Called you to know the LORD

~

The LORD

He is

Glorious

Sing praises of

All He has done

The LORD

He is

So very good

He’s so merciful

To us

His power it is

Infinitely able

To provide for us

All we ever need

For life

For godliness

Do you know the LORD?

“His divine power has give us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.” ~2 Peter 1:3
