Knowing and Kneeling

"LORD, who shall… dwell in Thy holy hill?  He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart" (Psalm 15:1,2).  "My son, keep Thy father's commandment… it shall lead thee… keep thee… talk with thee" (Proverbs 6:20-22).  "Josiah king of Judah… judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know Me? saith the LORD" (Jeremiah 22:11,16).  "That I may know Him… I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:10,14). 

When kneeling at God's holy hill
To worship Him and seek His face,
We find the strength to do His will
And grow in knowledge of His grace. 

To know Him is to do His pleasure
And find delight in His command. 
His Word shall be our daily treasure,
And He shall lead us with His hand. 

Josiah, king of Judah, knew
His Lord would be their strong Defender  
As they did what they ought to do,
Obeying God with glad surrender. 

Lord, to our calling now we press
To know You and to make You known
As You lead us in righteousness
And we are kneeling at Your throne.
