Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength.
2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters.
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
5 The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars; yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
7 The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire.
8 The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness; the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.
10 The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever.
11 The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.

"The Lord is over many waters."
Each Easter in Collegedale, Tennessee, my family volunteers in the SonRise Resurrection Pageant, portraying Passion Week in interactive drama and culminating with Christ's definitive victory at His resurrection.
There is frequently concern about the weather forecast. It is an incredible thing to see, year after year, the forecast miraculously changing at the last minute. Storms have blown around us. It has rained everywhere nearby, while the pageant route remains relatively dry. Indeed, "the Lord is over many waters." It is a powerful reminder that God uses His resources, not ours, when we tell His story to our community.
Yet this year, God did not part the waters. He allowed it to rain. And by His grace we ran the pageant, outdoors, in the rain. Was the Lord still over the waters? Of course. This year, we saw that even when God does not part the waters, the I AM, Immanuel, is WITH us IN the waters.
We didn't do it by our strength. The Lord gave strength to His people. He blessed us with peace. And thousands came to hear the story of Jesus.
"Give unto the Lord the glory due His name."
