Isaiah 40:6 (Listen)

The Word of God Stands Forever


  A voice says, “Cry!”
    And I said,1 “What shall I cry?”
  All flesh is grass,
    and all its beauty2 is like the flower of the field.

Hymn: TLH 17, st. 1,2,5,6: Oh Worship the King

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Oh, worship the King 
All glorious above: 
Oh, gratefully sing 
His power and His love, 
Our Shield and Defender, 
The Ancient of Days, 
Pavilioned in splendor 
And girded with praise! 

2. Oh, tell of His might, 
Oh, sing of His grace, 
Whose robe is the light, 
Whose canopy space! 
His chariots of wrath 
The deep thunder-clouds form, 
And dark is His path 
On the wings of the storm. 

5. Frail children of dust 
And feeble as frail, 
In Thee do we trust 
Nor find Thee to fail. 
Thy mercies, how tender, 
How firm to the end, 
Our maker, Defender, 
Redeemer, and Friend! 

6. O measureless Might, 
Ineffable Love, 
While angels delight 
To hymn Thee above, 
Thy humbler creation, 
Though feeble their lays, 
With true adoration 
Shall sing to Thy praise.
