Praise Adonai

One of my favourite Christian Singers in USA is Paul Baloche. His voice, his music, his songs that he wrote are great. As I have attached his songs on my playlist on the right side of my Blog, I locate his several songs on the top of my playlist. Praise Adonai is my favourite. The lyric, the beat/rythm and the colour of its music in this song is really creative. The original of this song, automatically you can hear it when you visit this blog and the video of his acoustic show of Praise Adonai, you can see it below (first, don't forget to turn off the volume on my playlist so you can hear clearly this video):

Acoustic set - Paul Baloche, Carl Albrecht - percussion,
Don Harris - bass, Ben Gowell - acoustic guitar.

The writing talents of Paul Baloche come to us. 'Praise Adonai', inquiring of us with the rhetorical phrase 'who is like Him', we see Jesus as:
The Lion and the Lamb
Seated on the throne
Mountains bow down
Every ocean roars
To the Lord of Hosts

Part of the review of his album 'Open the Eyes of My Heart' about the song 'Praise Adonai' from Kim Gentes I rewrite here as he mentions:
Like the Psalms and Proverbs, Baloche proclaims the unchangeable paradox of God's character (the Lion and the Lamb), pushing us into the view from the heavens. Then, as he surveys the kingdom from this view (Seated on the throne), we see such power, in profound simplicity of word, that our hearts and voices launch unstoppably into the chorus, 'Praise Adonai'.

For him, music is one of the most powerful tools to communicate with God, to get touch with Him. One of the important keys to have a quality worship is the “spontaneous worship” which is similar to jazz improvisation.

I have the same opinion with him, about music is one of the most powerful tools to communicate with God. When I listen the original of this music from my playlist, I always feel my soul is lifted up. I always repeat this song, again and again.

Then, what is the meaning of Praise Adonai? If you would like to know, here I try to explain shortly but clearly:

As we know the meaning of "Praise Adonai" is Adon means 'steward administrator, master, or Lord'. The addition of 'ai' to 'adon' intensifies or elevates its meaning, changing it to mean 'the ultimate Lord, the supreme Lord, or Lord of all'. The title of Adonai in the Hebrew language, God is Lord, clearly defines our role as servants of our Lord, God without outright ownership of our life and all things in heaven and earth. This defines our role as servant of our Adonai.

So, if you like this song, below I have enclosed its lyrics and chords:

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him..." John 3:16,17
