“O come, let us sing for joy to the LORD,
Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving,
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
For the LORD is a great God
And a great King above all gods…”
Regardless the hundreds of times I have read these words of worshipful invitation, my heart still leaps with fresh joy at the thought of the wonder of His call, and the creature’s highest privilege of worship in the very presence of our Creator God-King-Redeemer! If we might ever ascend but to this height we behold glory in the totality of life and being.
My heart is warm and filled with light though the world is cold, calloused, and dark. I am thankful that He is near.
