His King (original song by Peter Yock)

Although this song’s been posted on the website before, I thought it was worth posting again since we got a much better recording this time (thanks Jason Coughran!). But more so, ‘His King’ is inspired by the part of 1 Samuel we’re looking at this week as a church family (1 Samuel 1:1-2:11). It’s a great part of God’s word, and I hope this song helps you to reflect on it.

If you hit the Play button below you’ll hear both the spoken introduction to the song, and the song itself. Or you can download the mp3 which is the song without the spoken intro. Performed by Matt Simpson, Pooch, Ryan Davis, and myself.

O God of hosts, will you look on my affliction?
God above, do you see the bitter tears?
O Lord of all, are you so far from your creation,
That you don’t see, that you don’t hear my anxious fear?

O Mighty God, have you remembered my vexation?
Almighty Lord, have you forgotten that I grieve?
Judge of the earth, have you observed all my temptation?
My deep distress, and the bitterness from which I weep?

Father lift my eyes to see
That your hand is taking me

From the ash heap to his throne
From the grave into his home
From troubled soul to rejoicing in this King
From bitter tears to singing praises to this King

My heart is strengthened in His King

O Holy One, revive my soul with your affection
Loving Lord, move my heart to feel your peace
O Holy Rock, guard my mind with your protection
For only you will see me through these roaring seas

Father lift my eyes to see
That your hand is taking me

From the ash heap to his throne
From the grave into his home
From troubled soul to rejoicing in this King
From bitter tears to singing praises to this King

My heart is strengthened in His King

So let your judgement fall from heaven on
All the ends of earth
So let your thunder roar from heaven but
Save your faithful ones
For you are the Judge of all you
Kill and bring to life
You will exalt your Holy King and
Save us by his might

O Father God, forgive my heart of accusations
Sovereign Lord, please wipe away my hurtful deeds
O Holy One, forgive me for all my addictions
And strengthen me, that I might see you’ve set me free

Father move my soul to see
That your hand has taken me

From the ash heap to his throne
From the grave into his home
From troubled soul to rejoicing in this King
From bitter tears to singing praises to this King

My heart is strengthened in His King

    A great song Yocky! Not the sort of thing I’d listen to most days, but definitely worth buying when you release your album and we can hear how great it sounded live!
