Check out these words . . .
Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessing in His hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth,
Our full homage to demand.
We’re using this hymn as a part of our upcoming Christmas program. As I was arranging the tune for the choir today, I was struck by the worship perspective in this verse – keeping silent. Thinking of nothing on earth. Consumed with God’s glory, with the realization that God came to Earth to demand our worship. WE WERE BORN TO WORSHIP. WE WERE CREATED TO WORSHIP. Our God has designed us to bring glory to Him, and condescended to us to command our homage . . . what a thought to ponder.
