Praise the Lord!

Fat tire bikes open up new opportunities to enjoy our Creators majestic work.
Sun , waves, melting ice, the joy of rolling motion in fresh air, over ice and sand, pedaling on a set of floating wheels.

Sometimes living in thankfulness is easier than at other times but even then the words of Psalm 150 are always steadfast and true.

 

“Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness! “

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty

“Holy, Holy, Holy” is a Christian hymn written by Reginald Heber in 1826. The hymn is based on Isaiah 6:1-3 and Revelation 4:8, which describe the worship of God by angels in heaven. The hymn is often sung to the tune “Nicaea,” which was composed by John B. Dykes in 1861. The video location is along the northern shore of Lake Erie near Kingsville ON.

 

” Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee:
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessèd Trinity!”

Strangers In A New World

Growing up as a young boy in a Dutch immigrant family from the 1950’s had many mixed memories. This song is meant to musically portray the reflections of an old man who now, looking back in time at his own experiences, knows he must have some lesson to pass on.

This song was written in the late 1980’s and is written about what was experienced in the life of a young child born in Winnipeg and growing up as a young immigrant’s son.

This same child is much older now, and a lot has transpired, both good and bad, some happy and some, sad. It remains wonderful to know, that even now with faith in Christ, there is so much still to be gained.

The best is yet to come.

 

” And if I could count the times I was told
That we belong to Him,
And if there is only one small thing
That I can leave for my son;
I’ll pass him my candle, and I’ll say just as often,
That we, we belong to Him.”

The Song of Zechariah

Played on the Guitar. Originally from – An Wasserflüssen Babylon Strasbourg, 1525

 

With reference to Luke 1: 68-79.

“Blest be the God of Israel,
for he has come to set us free;
in David’s house the Lord has raised
salvation’s horn for all to see.
He through his prophets long ago
said he would save us from our foe,
from all who scorn and hate us.
He has not put our fathers’ faith to shame
but, in his love remembering them,
has kept the oath he swore to Abraham.”.

A New Father’s Song

“Hallelujah! Praised Be the Son,” played on the Guitar. Originally from – Evangelische Gezangen, 1806 

 

” Hallelujah! Praised be the Son,
for his redeeming work is done;
from sin he has untied us.
He died, was buried, but he lives,
and to his ransomed people gives
his blessed Word to guide us.

Hallelujah! The praises tell
of David’s Son, Emmanuel,
the Saviour, God incarnate.
In him, who will return again,
let all the universe acclaim
the Father, Son, and Spirit.”
