Quietly Sovereign

Good friend Stephen Weber sends along the lyrics to the following hymn. He has been blessed by this hymn and now I have been as well. I've never heard it before but I know the tune so I quietly sang it this morning. Be sure to check out Stephen & Brooksyne's Daily Encouragement Net and have a good

God Of The Ages
(Tune of "Morning Has Broken")

God of the ages, History's Maker,

Planning our pathway, holding us fast,
Shaping in mercy all that concerns us.
Father, we praise You, Lord of the past.

God of this morning, Gladly Your children
Worship before You, trustingly bow.
Teach us to know You always among us,
Quietly sovereign Lord of our now.

God of tomorrow, Strong Overcomer,
Princes of darkness own Your command.
What then can harm us?We are Your people,
Now and forever kept by Your hand.

Lord of past ages, Lord of this morning,
Lord of the future, help us we pray.
Teach us to trust You, love and obey You,
Crown You each moment Lord of today.

Daily Prayer:

God, You are supreme in our hearts. In adoration we worship You as we trustingly bow and lovingly surrender to You. Teach us to know You, as Your presence is always among us, working in Your quiet sovereign ways as You rule the affairs of Your people. AMEN.

  1. Dear David..The tune of this song has been going through my mind since I read this posting this afternoon when I got home from work..

    The words to this hymn are so nice. I am going to copy them out for Grampa Yade.
    I bet they would really sound nice accompanied by his guitar!!
    Or better still it would sound nice with the harp that his grand daughter plays!

    Thank you for putting it in here David...from Terry
