a word for Lent – Glory

Even though Messiah tells the story of Jesus, whose birth, life, and death are recorded in the Bible’s New Testament, many of the lyrics come from the Old Testament, like this passage today from Psalms.

 The King of Glory

 Gates, proudly lift your heads!
Open, ancient doors,
and the glorious King will come in.
Who is the glorious King?
He is the Lord, the powerful soldier.
He is the Lord, the war hero.

 Gates, proudly lift your heads!
Open, ancient doors,
and the glorious King will come in.
Who is the glorious King?
The Lord All-Powerful is the glorious King.

Psalm 24:7-10, ERV

We usually associate  Messiah with Christmas, but Handel wrote it to be performed at Easter. He drew the words of the songs from Scripture, choosing passages that tell the story of God sending Jesus to earth to redeem His people.
