about

"I will praise you, LORD, among the peoples. In every land, LORD, I will sing your praise." Jotham David Parker hopes to follow the Psalmist's example and bring God's praise and the breathtakingly beautiful imagery of Psalm 57 to today's peoples. Jotham renders Psalm 57's drama afresh with a new, poetic paraphrase. "Wake, My Glory!" is a unique fusion of Celtic and Scandinavian folk-style music and Neo-Plainsong chant backed by a powerful, highly textured electronic score. "Wake, My Glory!" will both please the music lover listening at home and be an edifying and inspiring addition to any church's hymnal.

lyrics

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
For my soul trusts in you.

In the shadow of your wings I hide my head,
Till far from me calamity has fled.
I will cry out to El Elyon
To God who works all of these things for me.

God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.
God shall send forth His mercy,
And His truth.

My soul quakes among the lions in their den.
I lie among the wicked sons of men.
Those in flames whose teeth are spears and arrows.
Those set in flames whose tongues are sharpened swords.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens.
Let your glory be above the earth.

They have spread a net to trip me in my pace.
O My poor soul, how low you bow your face.
They have dug a pit to swallow me.
But in the pit they themselves have engulfed.


My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast.
I will sing and give you praise.

Wake, my glory! Wake, harp in my hands!
I'll wake the dawn to unfurl his golden bands.
I will praise you, LORD, among the nations.
In every land, LORD, I will sing your praise.

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast.
I will sing and give you praise.

For your mercy reaches unto the skies.
And your sweet truth unto the clouds does rise.
Be exalted, God, above the heavens.
Above the earth, LORD, let your glory be.
