Listen and Declare: Behold (Then Sings My Soul) – Hillsong Worship

Behold (Then Sings My Soul) – Hillsong Worship

Here are 3 key takeaways:

  1. The word “Behold.” Every time I see “behold” in the Gospel, I get excited about what’s coming next:
    • Matthew 1:20 But when he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take to yourself Mary, your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
    • Matthew 9:20 Behold, a woman who had an issue of blood for twelve years came behind him, and touched the fringe of his garment;
    • Matthew 12:18Behold, my servant whom I have chosen; my beloved in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit on him. He will proclaim justice to the nations.
    • Matthew 27:51 Behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth quaked and the rocks were split.
  2. There’s something so powerful about declaring who God is, what He has done, and what He is going to do. This song is so simple, yet it’s so powerful to sing out loud.

3.. This is about God in His fullness: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Too many times we get caught up in who we think God is or who the world says God is.

 

Sing and declare the lyrics below while you listen and be blessed!

VERSE 1:

Behold the Father’s heart
The mystery He lavishes on us
As deep cries out to deep
Oh how desperately He wants us
The things of earth stand next to him
Like a candle to the sun
Unfailing Father
What compares to His Great love

VERSE 2:
Behold His holy Son
The Lion and the Lamb given to us
The Word became a man
That my soul should know its Saviour
Forsaken for the sake of all mankind
Salvation is in His blood
Jesus Messiah
The righteous died for love
It wasn’t over
For He is the risen One

CHORUS:
Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul
How great Your Love is
How great Your Love is

VERSE 3:
Behold I have a friend
The Spirit breathing holy fire within
My ever present help
Speaking truth when I can’t find it
Light up this broken heart
And light my way
Until my time on earth is done
Oh Holy Spirit
Breathe in me like kingdom come
Oh Holy Spirit
Let Your work in me be done

OUTRO:
Then sings my soul my God
He who was and is to come
Prepare the way
Until the work on earth is done
Watch as the clouds He rides swing low
Lift up the sound
As He makes our praise His throne
Behold the Lord our God will lead us home
