SPLENDOR AND MAJESTY 
(Original Version) *
(I Chronicles 16:24-27)

Splendor and majesty are before You
Strength and joy in Your dwelling place
We worship You in the beauty of Your holiness
Great are You Lord, most worthy of praise

We declare Your glory, we declare Your glory
We declare Your glory among the nations
Your love exceeds our wildest dreams
Your power conquers kingdoms
Grace and truth flow from Your throne
Awesome God!!

* Rewritten with Lenny Smith in 1996

 

THE STABILITY OF OUR TIMES

With justice and righteousness He has filled Zion
And He will be the stability of our times

Majestic King, be gracious to us
Please forgive our sin, Compassionate Judge
Pour forth Your mercy yet uphold Your Law
Be now our Strength and Rock (repeat chorus)

The Lord is my light and my salvation. who shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life,

Here's the fancy studio where we recorded...
We had to turn the tape cassette off each time
the toilet flushed or someone walked loudly upstairs!
