God Distinguished (Pala)
Pala is the Hebrew word defining to be wonderful, to distinguish and thus to separate from comparison with anything or anyone else. Pala not only describes but defines God (e.g. Gen 18:14; Ps 9:1), who alone is distinguished above all and beyond all comparison, yet is wonderfully present and involved with us (as in Isa 9:6). Only God is pala and is worthy of our worship.
Pala—pala—pala—! (sing "pala" strong, like a shofar)
1. You O God are beyond
(declare) and compare to nothing
You O God stand alone!
You be wonderful
(declare) beyond human words
You the Word, wonderful!
2. You are distinguished
You are, only you!
You God are sep’rate
compare to no one
You have no equal!
(tune of verse 1) You O God are beyond
(declare) You alone distinguished
(tune of verse 2) You are, you only
beyond and present
Wonder-full the Word!
