Stand in Awe

Let the whole world fear the Lord,

    and let everyone stand in awe of him.

Psalm 33:8 NLT

All my glory is built with straw
He is a fortress great and strong
So let the whole world stand in awe

As we transgress His perfect law
Without love just a clanging gong
All our glory is built of straw

Never from me will He withdraw
As angels sing a heavenly song
And all His people stand in awe

So deep within my heart He saw
Reminds me to Him I belong
Though my glory is empty straw

His healing for our fatal flaw
Right to redeem us from all wrong
Cause all nations to stand in awe

With words His majesty I draw
Joining my voice with holy throng
All our glory is worthless straw
As for me I must stand in awe
