Weekends are for Worship: A Psalm of Worship to a Holy God

**********************************

One of the gifts of Isaac Watts to the church was to adapt many of the Psalms for singing.  Here is his version of the second portion of Psalm 99.

PSALM 99 PART 2

A holy God worshiped with reverence.

Exalt the Lord our God,
And worship at his feet;
His nature is all holiness,
And mercy is his seat.

When Isr’el was his church,
When Aaron was his priest,
When Moses cried, when Samuel prayed,
He gave his people rest.

Oft he forgave their sins,
Nor would destroy their race;
And oft he made his vengeance known,
When they abused his grace.

Exalt the Lord our God,
Whose grace is still the same;
Still he’s a God of holiness,
And jealous for his name.
