'WHO IS LIKE THE LORD OUR GOD, THE ONE WHO SITS ENTHRONES ON HIGH'
This song was inspired by Psalm 113 where the psalmist writes: 'Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high’. I love the psalms and the way that they ask questions and then answer them and I really wanted to bring this into a worship song.
This song originally had a different set of verse lyrics and Jamie and I had been working on it for quite a while but for some reason it didn't quite sit right. In the end we decided to try and bring in the question and answer format and the scripture from Psalm 113 and this suddenly seemed to open the song up.
I love that 'Meet us as we are' contains the questions and answers and that this causes us to have a bigger picture of God. It’s easy to feel like we have to do something in order to gain God’s acceptance, but the chorus is a simple refrain that reminds us that it’s always God’s love and grace that meets us where we are, and as we are.
