“Holy God, we praise Thy Name.” What beautiful words expressing purity of devotion! Sometimes, though, I wonder if the self-centered fads of postmodern evangelicalism might obscure our adoration of this holy God. Do we forget that the very angels, transfixed by His holiness, think of nothing but worshiping Him?
The sweetness of the hymn I feature this week tugs at my heart because it focuses on our God and His holiness. It makes no mention of anything He does on our behalf, nor does it ask for His blessings. It simply calls us to praise Him for Who He is. And, as we begin a new year, I can think of nothing more appropriate than turning our attention fully towards Him.
