In the Highest


You who always were

in the highest


and always were

the Highest


humbled Yourself


for me


And I am in awe

of the sacrifice


of majesty

and Sonship

and royalty


Because the highest place

and the highest position

and the highest praise


are what You deserve


A wooden animal trough

made by a carpenter’s hands

is where you came to be


And I will forever thank You

and I will forever bless You

and I will forever praise You


for You are the Highest

bent low

for me

Applause, everyone. Bravo, bravissimo!
Shout God-songs at the top of your lungs!
God Most High is stunning,
astride land and ocean.
He crushes hostile people,
puts nations at our feet.
He set us at the head of the line,
prize-winning Jacob, his favorite.
Loud cheers as God climbs the mountain,
a ram’s horn blast at the summit.
Sing songs to God, sing out!
Sing to our King, sing praise!
He’s Lord over earth,
so sing your best songs to God.
God is Lord of godless nations—
sovereign, He’s King of the mountain.
Princes from all over are gathered,
people of Abraham’s God.
The powers of earth are God’s—
He soars over all.

– Psalm 47:1-9 (MSG)
