Monday Morning Melody

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a song on here, so let me fix that.

I have found myself singing this song often recently…on the drive to church, while enjoying some beautiful skies God’s given us recently, when I’m happy, when I’m sad.

It was written by a local musician who now resides in heaven. Paul Williams was the music leader at my grandparents church for years, and in fact took great pride in taking credit for introducing my parents to each other. His granddaughter and I were in the same string quartet in high school. I believe he was written other choral and/or orchestral numbers, but I’m most familiar with this one, which is featured on the album “Sounding Joy”, which many of my readers are probably familiar with. It has both beautiful lyrics and a beautiful melody (by Benjamin Harlen). Enjoy them both!

Almighty Father, You alone are holy.
You are my refuge, I will trust in You.
You are a tower, a mighty fortress,
You are my strength and shield. You are God.

Almighty Father, You alone are holy.
You guide my footsteps that I may not fall.
In joy or sorrow, I will exalt You.
You are my righteousness, You are God.

Almighty Father, You alone are holy.
You are Creator, You are all in all!
Yours is the power, Yours is the glory.
Yours is the majesty. You are God.
