"Hear the Heavens" (2019)
An original song with 12 string guitar and fiddle accompaniment - a paraphrase of Psalm 19 Lyrics; Hear the Heavens declare The glory of the Lord Day and night declaring signs and wonders, Their music glorious without words. The harmony of dawn The singing of the sun Over all the earth they pour their knowledge Proclaiming all the work the Lord has done And may my words be heard May this meditation please the Lord – He is my light and hope My rock, my redeemer, my friend My master and reward. His laws are perfect laws His statutes make me wise, His commands giving joy to my heart And radiance to my weary eyes. Love the Lord your God, Faith will make you pure, His decrees are righteous and the fear of the Lord will evermore and ay endure And may my words be heard May this meditation please the Lord – He is my light and hope My rock, my redeemer, my friend My master and reward. Gold is not so pure Honey not so sweet... The words of God are freedom for my soul And in seeking them I am made whole – I am complete... I fall in worship at His feet, He is my light and hope, My rock, my redeemer, And... Without Him I am incomplete.
The Holy Bible (KJVA)
Psalms (PSA) 19:1-14
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. 12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
