PRAISE THE LORD!!!!

PRAISE THE LORD!

Praise the Lord for blessings dear
From those we have so close and near
For the things from our Lord we hear
At just the right time.
Praise Him for His Word of Life
For His salvation to grasp tight
And tender mercies we can share
For love from Him who really cares.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Thank Him for His grace bestowed
Of which is given in abundant love
To those of us in Him we trust.
Praise Him! Praise Him! Lift your voice!
Sing His praises, shout for joy
Clap your hands with thanksgiving
Give the Lord the praise that is due Him!
Praise and worship to Him give
Praise Him for our Redeemer Lives!
Be ye joyful forevermore
Praise Him! Praise Him! O my soul!

Psalm 148 (NKJV)
Praise to the Lord from Creation

148 Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights!
2 Praise Him, all His angels;
Praise Him, all His hosts!
3 Praise Him, sun and moon;
Praise Him, all you stars of light!
4 Praise Him, you heavens of heavens,
And you waters above the heavens!

5 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
For He commanded and they were created.
6 He also established them forever and ever;
He made a decree which shall not pass away.

7 Praise the Lord from the earth,
You great sea creatures and all the depths;
8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds;
Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
9 Mountains and all hills;
Fruitful trees and all cedars;
10 Beasts and all cattle;
Creeping things and flying fowl;
11 Kings of the earth and all peoples;
Princes and all judges of the earth;
12 Both young men and maidens;
Old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
For His name alone is exalted;
His glory is above the earth and heaven.
14 And He has exalted the horn of His people,
The praise of all His saints—
Of the children of Israel,
A people near to Him.

Praise the Lord!

  1. Marcie, I pray that praise becomes the focal point of our writings in Jesus' Name. To encourage other members of our Christian Poets & Writers group on FB to see this, I highlighted your lovely praise poem - http://christianpoetsandwriters.blogspot.com.

  3. Love this Marcie girl! Praise is the first thing I realized as a key to the Kingdom. I have learned that the Lord truly inhabits the praises of His people. His Presence, soothes, comforts, strengthens, and rejoices over us. What an amazing thought :)

  4. Thank you for coming by Nan :-) It is so easy to be consumed by the negative and to forget that through praise we can be overcome by the positive and the peace that only God can give. I've been singing praise songs all day! :-)
