This past weekend, my local Baptist association had a men’s retreat. We met at the association’s campground (a great place for a men’t retreat), cooked our Friday night meal over at open fire (seriously, we ate like the kings of old), and heard great Bible teaching from my former pastor, Lee Tankersley (you can hear him preach over at his Church’s website). And we were led in singing by one of my fellow pastor’s in the association, Josh Boley, who chose some God-honoring songs for us to sing. One of those was ‘Behold Our God.’ I had heard this song before at a couple of other men’s conferences and have always enjoyed it, but it was really encouraging to gather with men from our area to declare the greatness of God. I love the last verse that focuses on Christ:
“Who has felt the nails upon His hands?
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God, eternal, humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign!”
Good stuff. You can listen to it here:
