Worshiping vs. Wavering

“Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house; so shall the King greatly desire thy beauty: for He is thy Lord; and worship thou Him” (Psalm 45:10,11).  “He that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed… A double minded man is unstable in all his ways… Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” (James 1:6,8,17). 

To whom are we lending our ear? 
In whom does our heart now delight?
King Jesus is drawing us near
To love Him with heart, soul, and might! 

Consider His life He outpoured
To clothe us in His righteousness!
Fall freshly in love with the Lord,
And worship the Christ we confess! 

Forget every other distraction;
Let worship arise in our duty
With love for our Lord in each action,
Reflecting the light of His beauty! 

As we are beholding our Savior
And rightly have pondered His love,
Our hearts neither wander nor waver
From Christ who is reigning above. 

Lord, keep us from being so blinded,
Forgetting redemption’s great cost,
That we would be found double minded
Like waves of the sea that are tossed. 

Your love for us, Lord, never wavered;
In You there’s no shadow of turning. 
By every good gift we are favored
With grace we are endlessly learning!  

We worship You, Lord, with thanksgiving  
For mercies eternal in scope. 
Be glorified now through our living,  
Unwavering daily in hope.
