Created: 2018

Words:

Let Our Voices Rise Like Incense.

Biblical Passages:

And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders, I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth; and he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne. And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twentyfour eiders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and with golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. (Revelation 5:6-8)

I will call upon thee, O Lord; make haste to me! Give ear to my voice, when I call to thee! Let my prayer be counted as incense before thee, and the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice! (Psalm 141:1,2)

Background:

This song has been part of my life soundtrack since I first heard it on the Petra Praise 2 album, it is one of those songs
that somehow gives words when no words come to mind.

Like a Taizé tune the melody carries our deepest prayers higher and further; the words from the ancient Psalm leads us
gently into a deeper relationship and conversation with God.

Linda Whitmer-Bell kindly gave me permission to use her interpretation of the Psalm, please do listen to the Petra
version of the song.

Linda wrote "What an awesome picture of worship in the heavenly throne room! To think that my prayers might play a part in the drama portrayed in John's Revelation - yet the Psalmist too asks that his prayers be "counted as incense", as a pleasing sacrifice. Let us humbly join our voices in praise and worship to the Lamb!"

The full lyrics are:

Let our voices rise like incense,
Let them be as sweet perfume!
Let our praises fill the temple,
Alleluias ringing ever new!

Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty!
Holy, Holy is the Lord our God!

Let our voices rise like incense,
Let them be as sweet perfume!
Let our praises fill the skies,
Lord accept our sacrifice!
