He exalts

“Wait for the Lord and keep his way. He will exalt you to inherit the land …” Psalm 37:34

Oh Sacred One there standing

Grant me now your favor.

Oblige this soul to know

The blessing of the Savior.

…..

No longer exalting self

My Lord stands at the helm.

He alone lifts up

To a higher, unseen realm.

….

Our part is to wait for the Lord. To walk in daily obedience to his Word and follow as his Spirit leads. It is not our place to exalt ourselves. He alone, the exalted one, lifts up.
