Eternal and loving God, We thank you for music and the gift of song through which we offer our praise and thanksgiving, our confessions and petitions, and our sorrows and laments. We give thanks to you for all those who have contributed to this hymnal: the authors, composers, arrangers, and translators who give us the words and music to express the thoughts and emotions that may otherwise have remained silent.
We give thanks for the lives and the witness of those in whose honor and memory these hymnals have been given. We pray that these hymnals may be used in worship, in education, in outreach, in evangelism, in nurture, in fellowship, and in faithfulness.
We consecrate them, and our lives, to your service, through Jesus Christ our Lord. All rights reserved. Used by permission. This God is greater, stronger and higher than any other; he is a healer with awesome power.
One might think that the first part is about God, but the second is definitely about Jesus, so the writer is most likely equating them. Also God is not necessarily a male. Otherwise, I thoroughly agree that God is awesome! The following story humorously describes the different between hymns and choruses: An elderly farmer went to the city one weekend where he attended the big city church.
When he returned home, his wife asked about his experience. They sang praise choruses instead of hymns. On another occasion, a young Christian traveled from the city to the country where he attended a small town church. The Lord God takes loving care of those open to temptation— when I was cut down to size, God took care of me— so calm down, fellow; the Lord has given you what was good! You got me out of the dead end.
You have stopped my eyes from filling with tears! You have kept me from walking into ruin—Yes! What shall I give the Lord God? So many lovely surprises God has given me. Yes, I will really offer thanksgiving to you: Cheers for the Lord God! When a young mother of three young children died in after a prolonged battle with cancer, our whole church was grieving and in a great deal of pain. Many of the choir members had difficulty taking the song on their lips, because the words indicated anger at God.
It took some discussions to indicate to them that their anger was legitimate, and that it was a previously unidentified emotion they were feeling during this experience. There were able to work through both their grief and their anger, and sang the song at her funeral.
Since that time we have had several occasions to use the lament at other memorial services. Sometimes we've had the whole congregation speak rather than sing the text. We have found it to be a wholesome expression of lament that people are normally hesitant to take on their lips, but once they do, they find it to be very meaningful. Why, Lord, must evil seem to get its way? We do confess our sin is deeply shameful; but now the wicked openly are scornful— they mock your name and laugh at our dismay.
We know your providential love holds true: nothing can curse us endlessly with sorrow. Transform, dear Lord, this damage into good; show us your glory, hidden by this evil. Why, Lord must he be sentenced, locked away? True, he has wronged his neighbor and has failed you. Yet none of us is innocent and sinless; only by grace we follow in your way. We plead: Repair the brokenness we share. Chastise no more lest it destroy your creatures. Hear this lament as intercessory prayer, and speak your powerful word to make us hopeful.
Why, Lord, must she be left to waste away? Do you not see how painfully she suffers? Could you not change the curse of this disaster? Amaze us by your mighty sovereignty. Why, Lord, must broken vows cut like a knife? How can one wedded body break in pieces? We all have failed at being pure and faithful; only by grace we keep our solemn vows. Why, Lord, did you abruptly take him home?
Could you not wait to summon him before you? Why must we feel the sting of death's old cruelty? Come quickly, Lord, do not leave us alone. Why, Lord, must any child of yours be hurt? Does all our pain and sorrow somehow please you? You are a God so jealous for our praises hear this lament as prayer that fills the earth. Text Calvin Seerveld, I Used by permission.
