Petra - Counsel Of The Holy Lyrics




[Based on Psalm 19:7-11, 33:11, 119:105]

There is a light burning in the darkness
A book of Hope
A morning light
Breaking over the mountains
To where the eagle flies
It gives us wings to touch the sky
It is the wisdom of the wise

Counsel of the Holy
The written Word of God
Wisdom cries for all to read
Counsel of the Holy
The greatest book of all
Is the path of victory

A book of wonder
A book of life
A book of promise faithful and true
A book of miracles for all who will believe
A book of wisdom to all who will receive

The counsel of the Holy
The written Word of God
Wisdom cries for all to read
The counsel of the Holy
The greatest book of all
Is the path of civtory
Wisdom cries for all to read
Wisdom cries for all to read

More precious than rubies
More precious than gold
Mighty is the wisdom of the Lord

    No one has ever seen John Schlitt and Steve Perry in the same room at the same time. Just sayin' 😂🤣😂🤣 What a blessing Petra has been for over 30 years for me (I'm 41 now).

  12. Drums and Trains

    The words to this song should give us all chills and make us want to praise our awesome God!

  13. Steven Kinsley

    I was very blessed by this album

  14. Jason Murray

    I grew up listening to them and collecting every album. Wish they were still together making music that was both unashamedly Christ centered and good sounding. It’s awesome music we don’t have much more in the Christian culture.

  15. Tina Vasquez

    THE WORD! Wisdom of the Wise! The Greatest Book of All! Amen!!!

  20. musicgirl42

    Reminds me of my junior high and high school years....wow, what a trip! The Christian music scene of today is sorely lacking in this kind of hardcore stuff that hits hard and carries a strong message.

  22. drmjr78

    Shortly after this CD was released, I had a dream that their previous lead singer, Greg X. Volz, returned to the group and was singing this song while playing a keyboard (perhaps a harpsichord) - I've seen Volz play rhythm guitar and percussion and have read that he could play drums too, but never seen or heard about him playing keyboards.

    briank06261973

    It would sound interesting if Greg X. Volz sang lead vocals on this song, although it might be a little out of his vocal range.  He has a four octave vocal range, so perhaps he could do it.

    drmjr78

    @briank06261973 It was just a dream anyway, but since Schlitt had gotten to sing some songs from the Volz years, being his replacement in 1986, it would be interesting to hear Volz sing songs from the Schlitt years.

    briank06261973

    That, it would be.

    Cindy Bear

    brian06261973, Volz could sing it easily. Remember him singing All Over Me from the More Power To You album? That's a great example of his range.

  23. James Howenstein

    peaceful

  24. Gareth Bell

    should be made available for mobile

  25. Joel Martins

    Petra é a melhor banda de rock cristão do mundo!

    WarBeard

  26. Ruslan Bereza

    Petra is the BEST!

  28. Max

    I like a lot of Death metal and grindcore. And just extreme music in general and I always find myself listening to old school stuff like this. So cool!

    JESUS CHRISTLIVES

    The beginning of this song sounds like Narnia

  29. Jennifer Pruitt

    Gospel music (in general Christian or otherwise) was staying power.

  30. Rogério P. A. Flores

    Thank you for your words.

  31. MrDrums76

    petra,white heart,degarmo & key,d.c. talk,stryper,jon gibson,carmen,ect! AHHHHH!!!! THE BEST MUSIC EVER!!! CHRIST IS KING!!!

  32. Luke Spink

    impact360 is right...Satan will turn on you. We're concerned for your salvation from the ruler of darkness who sees you as a piece of meat to control and not as a son to share in the inheritance of the universe with Jesus. I think this is one of two main reasons you're getting reasonably long replies to your comment. The other reason comes from the title of this song: Council of the Holy...God the Son is the living Word and will judge Satan. Repent from your path and your soul will live.

  33. impact360

    Just curious,why do you like Petra in particular if you are a Satanist knowing that Petra serves the Living God whom Satan is an enemy.Petra means Rock and directly refers to Jesus who is the Rock of Salvation who died for us all,while we were sinners and God haters, His love reaches past our wickedness,He was still willing to suffer our death so that we could live. Jesus said that Satan is the father of lies and that he was a murderer from the beginning,Satan always turns on those who serve him

  34. Rogério P. A. Flores

    I am not Catholic nor Christian but the band Petra is fantastic.Great song.

    MARIA DE MENCHEN

    Most important thing is your heart, believe in the power of good, in the power of love and hope for a better life.

  35. Rosana Rodrigues

    Petra Forever..

  36. Triple MVP legend

    " MIGHTY IS THE WORD OF THE LORD."

  37. Lady Xeno

    My heart melts whenever I listen to this song. Such a good feeling.

  38. Triple MVP legend

    Jesus- " heaven (1&2) will pass away, (but) MY words will never pass away." Psalms,

    " He (sent) HIS Word, and healed them,and delivered them from destruction." Proverbs 31, " (every) Word of GOD is Pure, He is a Shield to those who put their trust in Him." David said, " You have magnified Your Word, over Your own Name.:" The Word of God, JESUS, will soon destroy God's enemies, by the Sword of HIS Mouth, Amen!

  39. Triple MVP legend

    Hebrews 4:1, " For the Word of GOD is quick, and Living, and Sharper
    than (any) two-edged sword, dividing assunder even the soul and the spirit, even to
    the joints and the marrow,and is a discerner of the thoughts and the intents of the
    heart."The good LORD JESUS said in Revelation 2, " I am HE ,Who searches the mind s and the hearts."

  40. Triple MVP legend

    John 1, " in the beginning was the Word(Jesus), and the Word was (with) GOD, and the Word(JESUS) was God. HE( Jesus) was in the beg. with GOD. All things were made through

    Him."

  41. Triple MVP legend

    JESUS, is the WORD of GOD! GOD Made all things thru JESUS,(Colossians 1).

    JESUS said in John 8, " You shall know the Truth(Jesus), and the truth shall
    make(not set) you free".

  42. SacredLust97

    I too was attracted by the christian metal scene and hard melodic rock. There was a radio show here in Los Angeles called the ground floor. it came out every saturday at 5pm but unfortunately the station changed formats to the wretched mexican music culture. I loved the ground floor and the message of hope they conveyed to the lost sheep who still wander out in the open fields of darkness.

  43. impact360

    @Tempusss19 The Lord is so beautiful and He knows exactly how to get a hold of us, He understands us perfectly, it's so great to be loved by Him. Thanks for the wishes, and may the Lord also bless you and draw you ever near to His heart :)

  44. Blake Wimberly

  49. joel b

    This one's also my favorite. I love Petra! God is good all the time...

  50. Leviathan5955

    I am a Spiritual Luciferian Satanist, regardless this song is truly a great one. I been a Petra fan either way for quite many years now.

  51. Sandra Vasquez

    Yes, great song!

  52. Maria6237

    I wonder if you can still buy this music.

  53. Maria6237

    Aren't they great??! I used to listen to them!!

  54. Sandra Vasquez

    Thanks for sharing that with me. God is good! :)

  55. impact360

    That must have been quite the experience! Praise God!

  56. impact360

    I was a young christian in the 90's and my husband had these tapes from when he was young. I listened to them over and over and over again praising the Lord to the top of my lungs :)
    It was while listening to Petra that God spoke to me audibly, and said that He loved me, God has used Petra to minister to me, and many more I'm sure :) Praise God!!!!

  57. Sandra Vasquez

    OM Gosh, I wish I would have been a Christian back in the 80's! This song is awesome! I didn't even know about them back then. If I had listened to this instead of all that other stuff who knows, maybe I would have been a better Christian as a teenager.

  58. Pamathey

    What a rich song. I love this band. I can't say that enough.
