My God, my Rock



During our time of worshipping our God through song last Sunday, I was overcome by the words “you are my God” in one of the songs. This Holy, Holy, Holy God, this Almighty God, creator of the heavens and the universe, who reigns above all in majesty, this Sovereign God who works all things for His pleasure – He has stooped to reveal Himself to me – wretched sinner that I am – has opened my eyes to Him, and has had me brought before Him so that I can call Him “my God”. Mine. I know Him!

Truly, everything in this world pales in comparison to knowing that you know God, that you are known by Him. He is my treasure. He is my reward. In Christ I have everything I need. What a God!

What is man that You’re mindful of him?
For You dwell in a High Holy place –
Yet when this poor wretch called You answered me
And now I can feel Your embrace.

Chorus:
My God, my Rock, my Lord, my King
My hiding place - my soul must sing!
My shield and refuge, my Reward,
My heart and flesh cry out for my Lord!

What is man that You’re mindful of him?
For Your ears are attentive to my cry
You revive lowly spirits and contrite hearts
And now I can stand on the heights.

What is man that You’re mindful of him?
You record the tears of my lament
But in Christ, how my comfort overflows!
The joy of the Lord is my strength.

  5. Thank you all, Teresa, Barbara, Liz, Marianne. Yes, I did write this song. And Marianne, I find I much prefer to use scripture in song where I can to express my heartcry to the Lord. Scripture says it so well!
