Come and Stand Before Your Maker

During our morning gathering this past Sunday, we introduced a new song to Summit Woods; Come and Stand Before Your Maker.

This song of exaltation centers upon the call to worship; especially a believers response to rejoice in God in all circumstances. It is an echo to the psalmist's call in 2:11 "Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling" (ESV), and Paul in Philippians 4:4 "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice" (ESV), and Peter to persecuted exiled believers (1 Peter 4:13-14) "But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you" (ESV).

We are praying this song will be an encouragement to your heart and spark of truth for your mind so that you may find your endurance in Christ. Rejoice!

Come and Stand Before Your Maker

Come and stand before your maker
Full of wonder, full of fear;
Come behold his power and glory
Yet with confidence draw near,
For the one who holds the heavens
And commands the stars above
Is the God who bends to bless us
With an unrelenting love.

Come and left your hands and raise your voice;
He is worthy of all praise,
Sing the mercies of your King
And with trembling, rejoice.

We are children of the promise,
The beloved of the Lord.
Won with everlasting kindness,
Bought with sacrificial blood.
Bringing reconciliation
To a world that longs to know
The affections of a father
Who will never let them go.

All our sickness, all our sorrows
Jesus carried up the hill.
He has walked this path before us,
He is walking with us still;
Turning tragedy to triumph,
Turning agony to praise,
There is blessing in the battle
So take heart and stand amazed.
