A Winter Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 30, 34 & 111

Jehovah-Metshodhathi – Lord my Fortress:

                          The Lord Be Praised

O Lord, by Your favor, You have made my mountain strong. Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.

 

Praise You, O Lord! In worship, I will give thanks to You with all my heart.

Your works are great. I find great joy to be in Your house. There, I have witnessed the great and powerful work of Your loving hand.  You have met me there.  I have felt Your presence. You are right and good and forever.  Your great works will never be erased from my memory. I will remember how You show loving favor and compassion. I hold dearly to Your promises. They are forever. I look to You for daily guidance, pouring out my petitions, and You never fail me. You answer me. You take away all my fears and cause my face to shine with joy.You have turned my crying into dancing. You have dressed me with joy so my soul may sing praise to You and not be quiet.

O Lord, my God, I will give thanks to You forever. 

I will honor You at all times. Your praise will always be in my mouth. My soul will be proud to tell about You. I will exalt You for You rescued me.  I cried to You for help, and You restored my health. I will sing to You and praise Your holy name. For Your anger lasts only a moment, but Your favor lasts a lifetime!

Praise You Lord! O taste and see that You are good.

The works of Your hands are faithful and right.  Your Laws and promises are true. They stand strong forever and ever. You have made a way for Your people to be free. Your holy name is to be honored with fear. To fear You is the beginning of wisdom. Happy is the one who trusts in You!  For those who fear You never want for anything and Your eyes are on those who do what is right and good. Your ears are open to their cry.  You hear them and take them from all their troubles. You are near to those who have a broken heart and save those who are broken in spirit. May Your people keep their tongues from sin and their lips from speaking lies. May Your people turn away from what is sinful and do what is good. May they look for peace and follow it. You have turned my crying into dancing. You have dressed me with joy so my soul may sing praise to You and not be quiet.

O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

I will honor You at all times. Your praise will always be in my mouth.  My soul will be proud to tell about You. I will exalt you, Lord, for You rescued me. I cried to You for help, and You restored my health. I will sing to You and praise Your holy name. For Your anger lasts only a moment, but Your favor lasts a lifetime!

 As for me, I will never be moved.

O Lord, by Your favor, You have made my mountain strong. Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.
