Hymn and Scripture Challenge #4 - Worthy of Worship

*Before I begin my post today, I just want to let you all know that I have added an email notification in my sidebar. I never could have imagined anyone wanting my posts emailed to them! Thank you very much!

Happy Friday, my friends!
I have a new Hymn and Scripture Challenge page for you today. It sure is nice to be back on track with the schedule. 
When I first saw the title of this song, I thought Patter had finally picked a hymn that I wasn't familiar with. However, after listening to it on a YouTube video, I realized that I did know it after all!
You can clearly see the Scripture verse that I used on my page. Another one that I really like is found in Psalm 7:17. It says:

"I will give thanks to the Lord because of His righteousness;
I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High."

For some reason, whenever I think of singing praises to the Lord, I think of birds. When weather permits I spend lots of time relaxing in our yard. Out among the flowers and trees...and under the big beautiful sky that Saskatchewan is known can't help but worship the Lord. My heart sings praises to Him right along with all the beautiful birds! God is great and worthy of all of our praise; when times are tough, as well as when we are rejoicing! :o)
My page is very simple this time. I cut the bird out of the music sheet and inked it up. I created a nest with multiples of the Bird Branch die, and added a couple of feathers and some flowers. I wrote out my Scripture verse and matted it. Placed the title on a banner that I hand cut. Then I adhered it all onto this lovely floral page...and my page was finished...on time! lol Have a beautiful weekend! :o)

Here's a video with a sweet little boy singing part of the song in a Church service! 
The camera is quite wobbly but I thought it's short and worth watching! :o)

Here are all of the lyrics to Worthy of Worship:

Worthy of worship, worthy of praise, 
Worthy of honor and glory;
Worthy of all the glad songs we sing,
Worthy of all the offerings we bring.

You are worthy, Father, Creator.
You are worthy, Savior, Sustainer.
You are worthy, worthy and wonderful;
Worthy of worship and praise.

Worthy of rev'rence, worthy of fear,
Worthy of love and devotion;
Worthy of bowing and bending of knees,
Worthy of all this and added to these.

Almighty Father, Master and Lord,
King of all kings and Redeemer,
Wonderful Counselor, Comforter, Friend,
Savior and Source of our life without end.

Nancy, this is so beautiful! And I truly love to have your posts delivered to my inbox! Great passage to highlight and I love the wonderful musical bird you've created and that nest is pure delight! Love the added feathers!

Tracy said...

Don't be silly girl! Why wouldn't someone want your post by email. There are a few people out there who just don't do the Follower thing and besides, your posts are always uplifting and thought provoking.
Your page is just beautiful. I love the zinnia paper background and the sweet little birdie. I spent a bit of time outdoors today. It's amazing how anyone could deny God's existence when His presence is so obvious. :-) Hope you're having a lovely weekend. Hugs!

Geri said...

Somehow this doesn't seem like a 'very simple' page to me. But it is beautiful, Nancy! I've also often thought of birds' songs being a form of that you've incorporated one's perfect! Lovely creation, my dear!
