El Shaddai

I remember our youth group at church singing this song, as it had become very popular for choirs to sing it.  Instead of standing in the choir area behind the piano, our choir director had us line up across the front of the church to sing it.  The reason that is remembered so vividly is because Mrs. Betsy, our pianist, played for us, with the suggestion that we sing the Chorus A Capella – the first time our youth group EVER sung without some type of instrument being used to keep us in tune and time. It was also the first time we had ever sung a song with Hebrew words, referring to the LORD God, with a name other than we could find in our Bibles.

For those that would say they are “New Testament” Christians, please consider the words of this song, written in a slow, very methodical manner… The events of the Old Testament so clearly presented to prepare and show how the Lord Jesus fulfilled the prophesy represented in the New Testament of being the Messiah spoken of in the Old, provided for us all.

Chorus (First) Verse One
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
El-Elyon na Adonai,
Age to Age You’re Still the Same,
By the Power of the Name.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka na Adonai,
We will Praise and Lift You High,
El Shaddai.
Through Your Love and Through the Ram,
You Saved the Son of Abraham;
Through the Power of Your Hand,
Turned the Sea Into Dry Land.
To the Outcast on Her Knees,
You Were the God Who Really Sees,
And by Your Might,
You Set Your Children Free.
Chorus (Repeat of First)
Verse Two
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
El-Elyon na Adonai,
Age to Age You’re Still the Same,
By the Power of the Name.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka na Adonai,
We Will Praise and Lift You High,
El Shaddai.
Through the Years You’ve Made It Clear,
That the Time of Christ was Near,
Though the People Couldn’t See
What Messiah Ought to Be.
Though Your Word Contained the Plan,
They Just Could Not Understand
Your Most Awesome Work Was Done
Through the Frailty of Your Son.
Chorus (Second)
Chorus (Repeat of Second)
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,

El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka na Adonai,
I will Praise You ‘Till I Die,
El Shaddai.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
El-Elyon na Adonai,
Age to Age You’re Still the Same,
By the Power of the Name.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka na Adonai,
I will Praise You ‘Till I Die,
El Shaddai.
