Psalm 137

1   By the waters of Babylon,
        there we sat down and wept,
        when we remembered Zion.
2   On the willows there
        we hung up our lyres.
3   For there our captors
       required of us songs,
     and our tormentors, mirth, saying,
       "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!"

4   How shall we sing the Lord's song
       in a foreign land?
5   If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
       let my right hand forget its skill!
6   Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth,
       if I do not remember you,
     if I do not set Jerusalem
        above my highest joy!

7   Remember, O Lord, against the Edomites
       the day of Jerusalem,
     how they said, "Lay it bare, lay it bare,
        down to its foundations!"
8   O daughter of Babylon, doomed to be destroyed,
       blessed shall he be who repays you
        with what you have done to us!
9   Blessed shall he be who takes your little ones
       and dashes them against the rock!


Raise a Hallelujah

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me

   I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
   Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
   Up from the ashes, hope will arise
   Death is defeated, the King is alive

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me

   Chorus

Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
(repeat)
Sing a little louder

   Chorus


I Will Follow

When the sea is calm and all is right
When I feel your favor flood my life
Even in the good, I'll follow you
Even in the good, I'll follow you
When the boat is tossed upon the waves
When I wonder if you'll keep me safe
Even in the storms, I'll follow you
Even in the storms, I'll follow you

   I believe everything that you say you are
   I believe that I have seen your unchanging heart
   In the good things and in the hardest part
   I believe and I will follow you
   I believe and I will follow you

When I see the wicked prospering
When I feel I have no voice to sing
Even in the want, I'll follow you
Even in the want, I'll follow you

   Chorus

When I find myself so far from home
And you lead me somewhere I don't wanna go
Even in my death, I'll follow you
Even in my death, I'll follow you
When I come to end this race I've run
And I receive the prize that Christ has won
I will be with you in paradise
I will be with you in paradise

   Chorus (2x)


Light of the World

Light of the world, treasure of heaven
Brilliant like the stars in the wintery sky
Joy of the Father reach through the darkness
Shine across the earth send the shadows to flight

Light of the world, from the beginning
The tragedies of time were no match for your love
From great heights of glory you saw my story
God you entered in and became one of us

   Sing hallelujah
   Sing hallelujah
   Sing hallelujah for the things he has done
   Come and adore him
   Bow down before him
   Sing hallelujah to the Light of the World

Light of the World, crown in a manger
Born for the cross to suffer, to save
High King of Heaven, death is the poorer
We are the richer by the price that he paid

Light of the World soon will be coming
With fire in his eyes he will ransom his own
Through clouds he will lead us stright into glory
And there he shall reign forevermore, forevermore


If it Seems Slow, Wait for it
Habakkuk: "I Will Quietly Wait" (Advent 2022)
Habakkuk 2:1-20
Steve Gilbertson

In response to Habakkuk's complaint about God's use of evil Babylon to bring
justice and ultimate salvation to Israel, God said, "the vision awaits its
appointed time....If it seems slow, wait for it...." Indeed, six hundred years
later, the time was ripe for God's salvation to come (Gal. 4:4). And we, some
2000 years after, still wait for God's ultimate act of deliverance. The message
for us is clear: "If it seems slow, wait for it."

Habakkuk 2:1-20 (ESV)

2  I will take my stand at my watchpost
and station myself on the tower,
and look out to see what he will say to me,
and what I will answer
concerning my complaint.

2 And the Lord answered me:

“Write the vision;      make it plain on tablets,      so he may run who reads it.
3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time;      it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it;      it will surely come; it will not delay.

4 “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,      but the righteous shall live by his faith.

5 “Moreover, wine is a traitor,      an arrogant man who is never at rest. His greed is as wide as Sheol;      like death he has never enough. He gathers for himself all nations      and collects as his own all peoples.”

6 Shall not all these take up their taunt against him, with scoffing and riddles for him, and say,

“Woe to him who heaps up what is not his own—      for how long?—    and loads himself with pledges!”
7 Will not your debtors suddenly arise,      and those awake who will make you tremble?    Then you will be spoil for them.
8 Because you have plundered many nations,      all the remnant of the peoples shall plunder you, for the blood of man and violence to the earth,      to cities and all who dwell in them.

9 “Woe to him who gets evil gain for his house,      to set his nest on high,     to be safe from the reach of harm!
10 You have devised shame for your house      by cutting off many peoples;     you have forfeited your life.
11 For the stone will cry out from the wall,      and the beam from the woodwork respond.

12 “Woe to him who builds a town with blood      and founds a city on iniquity!
13 Behold, is it not from the Lord of hosts      that peoples labor merely for fire,      and nations weary themselves for nothing?
14 For the earth will be filled      with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord     as the waters cover the sea.

15 “Woe to him who makes his neighbors drink—      you pour out your wrath and make them drunk,     in order to gaze at their nakedness!
16 You will have your fill of shame instead of glory.      Drink, yourself, and show your uncircumcision! The cup in the Lord's right hand      will come around to you,     and utter shame will come upon your glory!
17 The violence done to Lebanon will overwhelm you,      as will the destruction of the beasts that terrified them, for the blood of man and violence to the earth,      to cities and all who dwell in them.

18 “What profit is an idol      when its maker has shaped it,     a metal image, a teacher of lies? For its maker trusts in his own creation     when he makes speechless idols!
19 Woe to him who says to a wooden thing, Awake;      to a silent stone, Arise! Can this teach? Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,     and there is no breath at all in it.
20 But the Lord is in his holy temple;      let all the earth keep silence before him.”
