Worship at 3BC: Psalm 62

The Psalms are known as the “songbook of the Bible”.  And, for good reason.  Because the form of the psalms are metrical, they lend themselves to being paired with a melody.  David knew this, the Reformers knew this (and preferred to sing the Psalms because they were the very word of God), and many hymn writers knew this.

What is impressed upon me with many of the Psalms is this: regardless of what is going on in our lives, we will trust in the Lord.  Through pain, through suffering, through trials – we will never quit trusting in God.

Today, as 3BC gathers to worship, we’ll sing Psalm 62 together.  It’s a modern song arrangement, written in 2007 by Aaron Keyes and Stuart Townend.

My soul finds rest in God alone, My Rock and my salvation,
A fortress strong against my foes, And I will not be shaken.
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse, And lies like arrows pierce me,
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness, I’ll look to Him who hears me.

O praise Him, hallelujah, My Delight and my Reward;
Everlasting, never failing, My Redeemer, my God.

Find rest, my soul, in God alone
Amid the world’s temptations;
When evil seeks to take a hold
I’ll cling to my salvation.
Though riches come and riches go,
Don’t set your heart upon them;
The fields of hope in which I sow
Are harvested in heaven.

O praise Him, hallelujah, My Delight and my Reward;
Everlasting, never failing, My Redeemer, my God.

I’ll set my gaze on God alone,
And trust in Him completely;
With every day pour out my soul,
And He will prove His mercy.
Though life is but a fleeting breath,
A sigh too brief to measure,
My King has crushed the curse of death
And I am His forever.

O praise Him, hallelujah, My Delight and my Reward;
Everlasting, never failing, My Redeemer, my God.

O praise Him, O praise Him, hallelujah, hallelujah!

O praise Him, hallelujah, My Delight and my Reward;
Everlasting, never failing, My Redeemer, my God.
