Behold Our God featured as part of the song list at the Together For The Gospel conference. A great feature of that is that the song was rendered in a four-part arrangement, which means that it is singable by normal congregations.
We’ll be experimenting with it at mgpc during 2013.
The poetry’s still pretty loose, but it looks like they’ve made an effort.
There’s no discernible thematic development either, but the elements add up pretty well to a useful opening song of praise.
Who has held the oceans in His hands
Who has numbered every grain of sand
Kings and nations tremble at His voice
All creation rises to rejoice
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!
Who has given counsel to the Lord
Who can question any of His Words
Who can teach the One who knows all things
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds
Who has felt the nails upon His hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior risen now to reign!
Men: You will reign forever!
Women: Let Your glory fill the earth
