This song was a suggested video supplement yesterday on the devotional blog Daily Encouragement (always listed in the sidebar at right.) The songwriters Keith and Kristen Getty are best known for the song “In Christ Alone,” though this song is by another writer. This particular video adaptation is quite well done.
He’s on the throne with His mighty power exalted.
And within His hand, great joy He holds.
Don’t despair, be not afraid, intercession has been made.
And today, I’m glad to say, He’s on the throne.
In the midst of pain and suffering,
Many friends had gathered ’round.
All were trying to bring comfort, but no comfort could be found.
Even some began to murmur, Job, You’ve suffered for so long.
Yet He said, “I’m gonna trust Him, He’s sitting on the throne”.
Are You captive to a prison of temptation and defeat?
You have never tasted victory, over your spirit sorrow sweeps.
Like Isaiah in the throne room, raise your head you’re not alone.
For He’s high and lifted up, and He’s sitting on the throne.
