Behind the Songs: Psalm 45

Song stories & lyrics from the album Fire in the Night: Psalm 45


Next in “Song Stories” is Psalm 45. I previously wrote about this song when the original EP was released. That blog post can be found here, and it fully explains the writing process I went through (and it has a video of Psalm 45 in concert). This song remains one of my favorites, both in album form and in its ever-changing live form!

Psalm 45

My heart is stirred by a noble theme
As I recite my verses for the King
My heart is stirred by a noble theme
As I recite my verses for the King
I’m ready
I’m ready

To open up my mouth and sing
To You my most glorious King
I’m ready
I’m ready

You are clothed in majesty
And You ride forth victoriously
Get ready
Get ready

GIRD YOUR SWORD UPON YOUR SIDE
O Mighty One
GIRD YOUR SWORD UPON YOUR SIDE
As You ride forth
GIRD YOUR SWORD UPON YOUR SIDE
Anointed One
GIRD YOUR SWORD UPON YOUR SIDE
As You ride forth
GIRD YOUR SWORD UPON YOUR SIDE
O Mighty One
GIRD YOUR SWORD UPON YOUR SIDE
As You ride forth

Your throne will last forever
And with justice You will reign
We have been preparing and awaiting for that day
When we’ll be led with joy and gladness to our glorious King
A bride made ready, fully ready and with joy we’ll sing

There will be a wedding day
A most glorious, glorious wedding day
There will be a wedding day
A most glorious, glorious wedding day
Get ready
Get ready
Get ready
Get ready
