Behold Our God

c.f. Isaiah 40:9-26


The words of this song are from the book of Isaiah, chapter 40. The phrase "Behold Our God" is an adaptation of a Jewish phrase, "Behold your God." When the nation of Israel heard this, it instilled a sense of fear and awe in them, causing many to fall flat on their faces in worship. Because of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, God no longer has to be only their God, but He can be our God as well. Let us sing with that same sense of awe and reverence.
