Song for Sunday

In keeping with Reading Ireland or more affectionately Begorrathon 2019, more from my favorite worship leader Robin Mark from Ireland…

 

In the beauty of holiness
We see You Son of righteousness
So we bring all that we possess
To lay at Your feet
In the place where Your glory shines
Jesus lover of all mankind
You have drawn us
With love sublime
To make us complete

So I pause at Your gates once more
As my heart and spirit soar
And I wish I could love You more
My God and my King

Is there tribute that I could bring
Was there ever a song to sing
That could ever express, my King
The work that You’ve done
Could I ever conceive of this
All the depths and the heights
And breadth of the riches
I now possess because of Your love

Song for Sunday

And my whole life I lay down…

I love Robin Mark. He is an Irish worship leader, song writer and math professor! I’ve met him a couple of times. Such a sweet, gentle man of God. Here’s a picture of him and my granddaughter back in 2012…

She was only 8 then! He said no way I looked like a grandma 🙂 Sadly I do now. The girl at the movies gave me a senior ticket without even asking 😦 My heart was crushed!

Robin wrote a very good book about worship in 2007 and spoke about the ‘troubles’ in Ireland and growing up in Belfast during them. Warrior Poets of the 21st Century 
He preached a sermon on worship years ago at his church in Antrim. I loved it. He mentioned a book by A.P. Gibbs, Worship – the Christian’s Highest Occupation. He had come across a copy laying in a box at a used book store. It was published in 1950. I went on a search for it and got a copy. I started reading it finally a few months ago. Excellent! I have learned so much. He also mentioned a sermon by someone named Paris Reidhead, (I know what a name!), Ten Shekels and a Shirt. I found it online, good sermon!
