Scripture Song Medley Keith Green

I was reading Psalm 47 as part of my devotions this morning. I am doing a 90 day study: Reading through the Psalms and Proverbs, Reading Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss, listening to praise music, praying, and writing in a journal. It is an online study with a bunch of ladies over the internet, in a yahoo group. Anyway, I came to Psalm 47 and remembered a song that went with the words of verse 1. "O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph." So, I went looking on You Tube for the words and tune I sorta remembered. I found it in a great Medley by Keith Green. I hope these praise songs brighten your day. The song  "Clap your hands..." comes at 1:50 minutes, but all the songs are good choruses we used to sing at church when I was growing up. 

Psalm 47:1-2, 5-7 "O Clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth. God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding."

Terrible in verse 2 is not meant like we would think of it. I looked it up in the concordance and it means:
1) to fear, revere, be afraid
2) to stand in awe of, be awed
3) to fear, reverence, honour, respect

So God is a God to be honored, respected, awed because he is so great, so high above us, so mighty, so holy.


I hope this blesses your day,
