I’ve been listening to Josh Fox’s new album, Radiant, and especially to track 2: Mighty is Our God. It puts into music and lyrics the essence of Psalm 19. (iTunes link.)
The song begins with an almost Robin Mark-beat and then soars into the sort of praise we find in Psalm 19 — straightforward praise and declaration of the goodness of God.
It moves, as does Psalm 19, from the heavens that declare the glory of God and then to the Word which is true. I found the song wonderful because this week I’ve blogged through Psalm 19. Perfect (providential) timing.
Good music for worship leaders to know and to adapt to local congregations.
Here are the lyrics:
Mighty Is Our God
Josh Fox, Jason Ingram 2009

VERSE 1
The fear of the Lord is life, is life
The fear of the Lord is life
The way of the Lord is right, is right
The way of the Lord is right

VERSE 2
The love of the Lord is mine, is mine
The love of the Lord is mine
The joy of the Lord will rise, will rise
The joy of the Lord will rise

CHORUS
The heavens declare the glory of the Lord
And we will proclaim ‘Forever we are Yours”
Mighty is our God!

The heavens declare the glory of Your Name
And we will rejoice forever we will sing
Mighty is our God!

VERSE 3
The Word of the Lord is true, is true
The Word of the Lord is true
The day of the Lord is here, is here
The day of the Lord is here

BRIDGE 
Your Name is greater
Your love is stronger
Your mercy deeper
There is no other like You
