You are a good, good Father. All praise and honor is due you. All worship is yours, Lord. You know us by name, and beckon us to join you at your table. Great and mighty are you. Worthy are you. May your people declare your holy name.
]Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord;
Praise Him, O servants of the Lord,
2 You who stand in the house of the Lord,
In the courts of the house of our God!
3 Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
Sing praises to His name, for it is lovely.
4 For the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel for His own possession.
You are the Alpha and Omega, the God who was, who is, and who will always be. There is no one like you, there is no one greater than you. You created the world and all that is in it. You are the Lord of lords and King of kings.
5 For I know that the Lord is great
And that our Lord is above all gods.
6 Whatever the Lord pleases, He does,
In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.
7 He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
Who makes lightnings for the rain,
Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.
You are our protector, the righteous judge. You protect your children, and restore what the locusts have eaten. At the sound of your name, demons flee, and evil runs. In your presence, there is no darkness. Nothing is hidden from you. You find the lost, heal the lame, and breathe life into the dead. You give hope to the hopeless. You are a father to the fatherless. You love with an everlasting love. There is none like you.
8 He smote the firstborn of Egypt,
Both of man and beast.
9 He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt,
Upon Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 He smote many nations
And slew mighty kings,
11 Sihon, king of the Amorites,
And Og, king of Bashan,
And all the kingdoms of Canaan;
12 And He gave their land as a heritage,
A heritage to Israel His people.
13 Your name, O Lord, is everlasting,
Your remembrance, O Lord, throughout all generations.
14 For the Lord will judge His people
And will have compassion on His servants.
15 The idols of the nations are but silver and gold,
The work of man’s hands.
16 They have mouths, but they do not speak;
They have eyes, but they do not see;
17 They have ears, but they do not hear,
Nor is there any breath at all in their mouths.
18 Those who make them will be like them,
Yes, everyone who trusts in them.
Your people praise your name. We rejoice in who you are, in the strength of your hand, and the fierceness of your love. You have cast our sins into the sea of forgetfulness. May our lips sing your praises. May we be a people who call out to you.
19 O house of Israel, bless the Lord;
O house of Aaron, bless the Lord;
20 O house of Levi, bless the Lord;
You who revere the Lord, bless the Lord.
21 Blessed be the Lord from Zion,
Who dwells in Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord!
Father, forgive our stubborn arrogance. Forgive our forgetfulness. We need you. Every hour we need you. Rain down your Spirit. We are so thankful, thankful for the ability to lay before your thrown in humble adoration. Be near Father. Have your way in us. Amen.
