Ponder These Things

Lord of the Heavens

Seated on the right hand of God

Four and twenty elders worshipping

Sing glory and honor and power and might

To the King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Exalted above all others

Since the beginning of time

Glorious and majestic

Full of awe and wonder

All things created by Him

All things created for Him

Beautiful beyond description

More precious than silver or gold

Merciful and gracious

Longsuffering and full of goodness

Worthy of all praise

Son of the most high God

Holy is He

King of heaven and earth

Left His heavenly place

Left the splendor and the glory

Left the right hand of God

Left His Father

Left His power and authority

Left His throne

To come to this earth

Disrobed of His glory

Clothed in rags

A baby in a manger

No honor bestowed Him

No welcome of royalty

But animals in the stable

A star announcing His birth

Brightly shines above the city

Wise men from afar witness the star

They start their journey

Angels announcing His birth to shepherds

Not to kings

Sing glory to God in the Highest

Say the Savior, Christ the Lord, has come

As a babe in as manger

Beckon the shepherds to go and see

They come and tell Mary their tale

And bow before the King of Kings

Little baby in the hay

Mary ponders these things in her heart

We should so ponder these things

His humility

His love

His sacrifice

All for us

All for you

All for me

The Humble Heart

I saw the angels gather
By the throne of God
Before the sun had dawned one cloudy day
I strained to hear them talking
And then the angels said
Lord, how can we go bless someone today

God smiled and nodded slowly
That question pleased Him so
He rose up from His throne and all got still
His voice then filled the heaven’s
I could hear the words He said
I’ll write them here so you can know His will

Bring peace to those that fear
Bring joy to those that weep
Bring hope to all who think their life is bleak
Bring healing to the sick
Deliverance to the bound
Bring strength to all who tremble and are weak

Give sight to all the blind
Give hearing to the deaf
Give words to those whose tongues have never talked
Wisdom to the seekers
Knowledge to the teachers
Give strength to all the lame who’ve never walked

The angels listened closely
As the master spoke these words
They sang hallelujah when He sat back down
Then one spoke up for all of them
Lord we gladly will do all
Just tell us which ones need which blessing now

God leaned over to the angels
I will not forget His words
Just listen to their prayers was His reply
Give ear to intercessors
As they lift up their requests
Fulfill the cries of those with humble hearts

The angels then retreated
They headed down to earth
One question filled my heart and mind day
When I lift up my voice
In petition to the Lord
Is it with a humble heart that I pray

Before The Mountains Rose

Before the mountains rose
Before the valley low
Before the starry night
Before the bird took flight
Before the raging sea
Before the west and east
Before our world was made
The angels sang your praise

I will give you praise with all my heart
I will give you praise with all my soul
With all my strength with all my might
I lift my hands to you
I will give you praise
I will give you praise

Before the universe
Before this place called earth
Before the storm clouds rolled
Before the heat and cold
Before the seasons changed
Before the beasts were named
Before man roamed this place
The angles gave you praise

I will give you praise with all my heart
I will give you praise with all my soul
With all my strength and all my might
I lift my hands to you
I will give you praise
I will give you praise

Before I knew you I was lost in sin
Before I asked the Savior to come in
Before I was so lost, but now you guide my way
And forever more I will give you praise

I will give you praise with all my heart
I will give you praise with all my soul
With all my strength with all my might
I lift my hands to you
I will give you praise
I will give you praise

I was given this today and also have the melody for it running through my head. I hope to get it up on my YouTube channel in the next day or two and will post it when I do. My YouTube channel is HERE
