Adonai

Please mute my playlist at bottom of blog to listen to this beautiful song.


It is so comforting to know that the same Lord who created the world with His mighty hands is never too busy to cradle me in His loving arms!!!

Adonai written by: Lewis/Ferro/Koch

One single drop of rain
Your salty tear became blue ocean
One tiny grain of sand turning in your hand
A world in motion
You're out beyond the furthest Morning Star
Close enough to hold me in Your arms
Adonai, I lift up my heart and I cry
My Adonai
You're Maker of each moment
Father of my hope and freedom
Oh, my Adonai
One timid faithful knock
Resounds upon the Rock of Ages
One trembling heart and soul
Becomes a servant bold and courageous
You call across the mountains and the seas
I answer from the deepest part of me
Adonai, I lift up my heart and I cry
My Adonai
You are Maker of each moment
Father of my hope and freedom
Oh, my Adonai
Oh, From age to age you reign in Majesty
And today You're making miracles in me
Adonai! I lift up my heart and I cry
My Adonai You are Maker of each moment
Father of my hope and freedom
Oh, my Adonai

Adonai is the plural of Adon, meaning “Lord, Lord, LORD, master, or owner” (the word Adon derives from a Ugaritc word meaning “lord” or “father”). In the Tanakh, the word Adon can refer to men and angels as well as to the LORD god of Israel (e.g., Exodus 34:23). God is called the “Lord of lords” (Deuteronomy 10:17) and Psalm 8:1 mentions God as “YHVH our Lord.” (To learn more continue here: http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Names_of_G-d/Adonai/adonai.html )
