The dictionary defines holy as “exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness”. Our choir has sung several songs recently about the holiness of God. During practice, our music minister talks to us a little bit about the songs we are going to sing. He said, “I have noticed that something special happens in church when we sing about the holiness of God. People respond.”

I know that as a choir something special happens to us. Our practice becomes less rehearsal and more a time of heartfelt praise and worship as we sing “You are holy, oh so holy. You are holy Lord of all.” Or, “No word but holy, that’s what I would say if I were asked today to convey who you are.” It is a word that drives us to our knees as we catch a glimpse of who God is, and who we are. It is the prophet Isaiah crying out, “I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted with the train of His robe filling the temple. Seraphim stood above Him….and one called out to another and said ‘Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory.’ And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke. Then I said, ‘Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.”

My heart is so full when we sing these songs. I look out at the congregation and watch as slowly hands are lifted to the Lord. The praise fills the building and people begin to rise to their feet. Soon everyone is standing in reverence and honor to the Holy Lord of Hosts. And for a few brief minutes we see just a glimpse of the glory of God. I want it to go on and on. I want to see His robe fill the temple, hear His voice and feel the very foundations tremble. He is Holy and worthy to be praised.
