9 Then Nehemiah the governor, Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who were instructing the people said to them all, "This day is sacred to the LORD your God. Do not mourn or weep." For all the people had been weeping as they listened to the words of the Law.

10 Nehemiah said, "Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength."

What are you going to do?

O sacred king
O Sacred King

O Sacred King, O Holy King

How can I honour You rightly, Honour that's fit for Your name?

Sacred friend, O Holy friend

I don't take what You give lightly Friendship instead of disgrace.

For it's the mystery of the universe

You're the God of holiness, Yet You welcome souls like me.

And with the blessing of Your Father's heart

You disciple the ones You love

There's kindness in Your majesty

Jesus those who recognise Your power

Know just how wonderful You are - that You draw near.
