Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord; praise the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time on and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the Lord is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high,
who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the Lord!
Food For Thought:
This is a Psalm of praise. Think about the things that you would like to praise God for. Write a Psalm of praise to God to thank God for all the amazing ways that God has worked in your life.
And a universe
Burst into existence
And an ocean
Broke against shore
And a wild goose
Flew across the horizon
And a love song
Was played for the world
In your holy name we pray, Amen.
