Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts

For today’s little sermonette let’s consider Isaiah 6:3 in the King James Version of holy scripture. It says…

1In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

Isaiah 6:3, KJV

This classic song is probably one of my absolute favorites. I love worship songs that are part bible, part prayer, and part spiritual song. I heard a preacher say recently that he believed God was a musician at heart. I really liked that. Miriam, the sister of Moses, was a musician. King David was a musician and that was evident by his early ministry in King Saul’s court easing the evil spirit that tormented him. Hymns and worship songs played a big role in the New Testament as well and music to this day is a key component in the house of God. Here is one of my favorite renditions of Holy, Holy, Holy.
