God, brilliant Lord, Yours is a household name. I’m thanking You, God, from a full heart. I’m whistling, laughing and jumping for joy; I’m singing Your song, O Lord. You took over and set everything right; when I needed You, You were there, taking charge.
You hold the high center; You see and set the world’s mess right. You decide what is right for us and will never leave us alone. You are a safe house, a sanctuary during bad times. The moment I arrive in Your sanctuary, I feel safe. I relax and am never sorry I knocked and entered into Your presence.
O Lord, my Lord, how great is Your name in all the earth. You have set Your shining greatness above the heavens. I look up and think about Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in their places. Who am I but an ordinary person? Yet you, the God of heaven, think me worthy of your care and goodness.
Out of the mouths of children and babies; nursing infants sing their choruses to You; toddlers shout their songs. You made us a little less than the angels. You made us to rule over the works of Your hands. You put all things under our feet: all sheep and cattle, all the wild animals, the birds of the air, the fish of the sea and all that pass through the sea.
O Lord, our Lord, how great is Your name in all the earth. I will shout the songs with the children and praise Your holy name. Your presence in my life brings me great joy.
Continue to be kind to me, God. I’ve been kicked around long enough. You’ve pulled me back from the gates of death and I now have joy. I’ll write the book on hallelujahs on the corner of Main and First. I’ll hold a street meeting; I’ll be the song leader; we’ll fill the air with salvation songs. Genuine happiness comes to the one who does not walk in a sinful way or stand in the path of sinners or sit with those who laugh at the truth. Everlasting joy is in You, Lord, and I am mindful day and night of Your goodness to me. I am like a tree planted by rivers of water, which gives its fruit at the right time. Its leaves never dry up. My household is blessed and I am confident that whatever I do will work out well for me, for You, Lord, have found favor with my household.
I’m thanking You, God, from a full heart. I’m whistling, laughing and jumping for joy; I’m singing Your song, O Lord. For You, O Lord, know the way of those who are right with You. And I am thankful. For Your presence in my life brings me great joy.
