Power Pondered

"The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit Thou at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool… Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power" (Psalm 110:1,3).  "The LORD pondereth the hearts…  As for the upright, He directeth his way" (Proverbs 21:2,29).  "And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon His name, declare His doings among the people, make mention that His name is exalted" (Isaiah 12:4).  "[Herod] gave not God the glory… and gave up the ghost.  But the Word of God grew and multiplied" (Acts 12:23,24). 

Our Lord is seated on His throne,
Exalted at the Father's side. 
His people gladly make this known 
As Christ our Lord is glorified.

Let us be willing in this day,
As God now ponders every heart,
To be directed in His way
With power that He will impart. 

The Word of God and urgent prayer
Shall manifest His saving power
As with His Gospel we declare
That this is His salvation's hour. 

O Lord, when Herod's boasting halted,
Your power then was surely pondered. 
So may Your Word be now exalted
And precious time be no more squandered.
