Meditating on His Might

"O how love I thy law!  It is my meditation all the day" (Psalm 119:97).  "To the counselors of peace is joy" (Proverbs 12:20).  "Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is His treasure… Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge My might.… Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty" (Isaiah 33:6,13,17).  "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). 

How rightly we should stand in awe,
Astonished in our meditation,
At Christ, who satisfied His law
When He accomplished our salvation! 

We are His counselors of peace
Who bring glad tidings in our day,
So that His mercy may increase
In those who trust Him, while they may. 

Behold the King in all His beauty,
God's spotless Lamb, His Holy One! 
It is our highest joy and duty
To now declare what He has done! 

While meditating on Your might
And on Your wondrous love, O Lord,
Majestic beauty fills our sight
As You are gratefully adored!
