A Spring Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 81, 87 & 92

It is so good to give thanks and sing praises to God’s holy name, the name above all names. It is so good to tell of His loving kindness each morning, and of His faithfulness each night.

Sing for joy to the God of Jacob, who is my strength! 

Sing a song. Beat the drum. Play the sweet-sounding harps.  Blow the horn.  The praise from each orchestral instrument’s song draws me to Your presence, Oh Lord.

I am so thankful. You have made me happy and have done so much for me; my life is crafted carefully by the works of Your hand. Each day I will be faithful to sing a song of praise.

How great are Your works, O Lord! How deep are Your thoughts.  You rule from Your Heavenly throne forever. You are faithful. My rock.

There is nothing about You, God that is not right and good.

A Spring Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 93 & 99

Jehovah Hamelech– God Is King.

God, You are my King. You rule with great power and strength. Your heavenly throne is set up from long ago and is eternal. You have always been and forever will be.

Strength is found in You, Lord. All honor and glory are Yours, my Lord and my God. I will worship on my knees.  For You alone are holy!

I have stood at the waters edge and watched the fierce tide rush in. I have heard the thunder of the angry sea and felt the power of its relentless waves. But mightier than the violent raging seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— You above are mightier than these! You are Lord on high. You are unshakeable. Your Word is very sure. And Your Kingdom is perfect in every way as it lasts forever.

Strength is found in You, Lord. All honor and glory are Yours, my Lord and my God. I will worship on my knees. For You alone are holy!

I fear Your holy name, the One who sits on His throne above the angels. Let the earth shake! Lord, You are great and to be honored above all people. I will praise Your great name.  I will honor you with fear and respect because You alone are holy!

Strength is found in You, Lord. All honor and glory are Yours, my Lord and my God. I will worship on my knees. For You alone are holy!

I will do as the saints of the Old Testament, who called on Your name. They called upon you, Lord, and You answered them. They kept Your Word and the Law that You gave them. You answered them. You were a forgiving God to them. I will be faithful as the saints of old and honor you, the Lord our God. I will worship lifting up Your Name on high from the mountains tops. You are the Lord our God who is holy!

Jehovah-Adon Kal Ha’arets  “The Lord of all the Earth” 

The Lord rules.

Jehovah, You are King! Let the earth be full of joy with me. Let the many islands be glad. It is amazing to me that even the clouds and darkness surround You. My strength comes from the foundation of Your throne that is built upon what is right and fair.

Sing a brand new song to the Lord.

 I will sing from my heart as I know that You have done great things in my life. I have experienced Your saving power.  You are all that is good and right. Your loving kindness is beautiful to me.

All the earth calls out for joy to the Lord. Join me in song. Sing songs of great joy and praise. Sing praises to the Lord with all that you possess and with your voice.

Fire blazes out before You. Even Your lightning lights up the world. The earth sees and shakes. The mountains melt like a candle before You, the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens tell about how right and good You are. And everyone will see Your shining greatness.

 I will worship the one true God.

 I am full of joy. For You are the Lord Most High over all the earth. You are to be honored above all. I love you, Lord. This love for Your righteousness causes me to hate what is bad. For You keep safe the souls of Your faithful ones. Light is spread like seed for those who are right and good. I will be glad in You, Who is right and good. I will give thanks to Your Holy name today and every day of my life.

Sing a brand new song to the Lord.

 I will sing from my heart as I know that You have done great things in my life. I have experienced Your saving power. You are all that is good and right. Your loving kindness is beautiful to me.

All the earth, call out for joy to the Lord. Join me in song. Sing songs of great joy and praise. Sing praises to the Lord with all that you possess and with your voice.

You are my King and I will continue to sing of your greatness. The world joins with me in praise to You, mighty God. The seas’ waves make a loud noise, the rivers rushing waters clap and the mountains rise to praise You. You will return to put the world, and everyone in it, right.

Shout praises to the Lord.

Jehovah-Mephalti – Lord my Deliverer

O Lord, I delight in Your strength! Yes, How great is my joy in Your saving power!

You bless me with the desires of my heart, keeping nothing from me.  For You meet me with gifts of good things, crowning my efforts with success. You give me life, a long life forever and ever. You make me glad with the joy of being with You.

 Please hear my voice when I pour out my heart. Keep my life safe from the fear of those who hate me. Hide me from the secret plans of the sinful and from the noise of those who do bad things. Their tongues are sharp like a sword. They use poison words like darts and shoot at me without blame. They are quick and are not afraid to hurt me.  For their heart and inside thoughts  are deep and pursue sinful things. These things rob me from the joy I feel when I am with You.

Because of Your loving kindness, I will not be shaken. I will pray as written in the book of Isaiah: 

 

“Rain down, you heavens, from above, And let the skies pour down righteousness;

Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together…”

For Your hand will find all who fight against You. Your right hand will find those who hate You. They will be made to trip and fall. Their own tongue is against them. But for the one who is right and good, they will be glad in You and will give You praise.  

O Lord, our deliverer, Your righteousness will prevail. In Your strength, I am glad! Yes, How great is my joy in Your saving power!

You continue to bless me with the desires of my heart, keeping nothing from me.  For You meet me with gifts of good things, crowning my efforts with success. You give me life, a long life forever and ever.  You make me glad with the joy of being with You.

A Spring Song of Worship and Praise adapted from Psalm 103

Praise for God’s Love

Praise the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, praise Your Holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul.

 I will not forget Your acts of kindness. You are the One who forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.  You have saved my life. You have crowned me with loving kindness and mercy. I recognize that You have filled my years with good things. These good things have brought me much joy. They make me feel young again.

Lord, You do what is right and fair. Your grace and mercy is around me. You are slow to anger. Your love is unconditional and abundant. You correct my wrongdoing with tenderness.

As high as heaven is over the earth, so strong is Your love to those who fear You. And as far as sunrise is from sunset, You have separated us from our sins. As parents feel for their children, You feel for those who fear You. You know us inside and out, and You continue to love us even with our faults. God, You alone make everything right.

My days are few. I grow like a wildflower in the field. This wildflower springs and blossoms when the wind blows over it, leaving nothing to show it was there; just like my life. Your love, though, is ever and always eternally present. Your promises and ever presence bring great comfort to me.  It is You, God that makes everything right for those who follow Your Covenant ways and remember to do whatever You say.

You have set Your throne in heaven, ruling over us all. You’re the King! I will praise You Lord, O my soul!

Jehovah-Sabaoth – Lord of Host 

Praise the Lord! Praise God in His holy place! Praise Him in the heavens of His power! Praise Him for His incredible works! Praise Him for all His greatness! Praise Him with dancing and with loud clear sounds.  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

It is so good to sing praises to my God.  It is pleasing to Him. My praise is so right. He heals my broken heart and heals my many sorrows. Great is my Lord, and mighty in power. His understanding has no end.  God favors those who fear Him and those who wait for His loving-kindness. His goodness brings a song to my lips. I will sing to my Lord daily with thankfulness and praise. His goodness makes me sing a new song and His wonderful name moves me to dance. The Lord is happy with me. He saved me and has made me beautiful. My pursuit is to be God-like and full of His joy and His honor. I will sing for joy and the high praises of God will be on my mouth. This is an honor for me to give my daily praise to my Lord and Savior.

God sends His Word to the earth. And His Word runs fast. God knows the number of the stars and names them all. He covers the heavens with clouds. He gives rain for the earth. He makes grass grow on the mountains.  He gives food to the animals, and to the young birds that cry. He gives snow like wool. He spreads ice like ashes.  He throws down His ice as hail stones. He sends out His Word and melts the hardened stones. He makes His wind blow and His waters flow. God spoke and His creation came into being. He has made it last forever and ever.

Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord from the heavens! Praise Him on high! Praise Him, all His angels! Praise Him, sun and moon! Praise Him, all you shining stars!  Praise Him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Let all creation praise the name of the Lord!

Jehovah-Tsidkenu –  My Righteousness

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—I Corinthians 1:30

For this is the day the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it. Praise God, everybody!  Applaud God!  His love has taken over our lives; God’s faithful ways are eternal. He is my God, and I will praise Him; He is my God, and I will exalt Him. I give thanks to the Lord for He is good and His mercy endures forever. Hallelujah!

It is better to trust the Lord than to put our confidence in anything or anyone in this world.  The Lord is our strength and song, He has become our salvation. Truly the voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous. May the Lord open the gates of righteousness so we can go through them and praise Him.

For this is the day the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it. Blessed be His name from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its going down, His name is to be praised. He is my God and I will praise Him; He is my God and I will exalt Him. Thanks be to the Lord for He is good and His mercy endures forever.

Blessed is the one who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in His commands. Our children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in His house, and His righteousness endures forever. Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, gracious, compassionate righteous one. Good will come to those who are generous, lend freely and conduct their affairs with justice. Surely they will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. The faithful will have no fear of bad news for their heart is secure. They will have no fear and, in the end, they will win.

For this is the day the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it. He is my God and I will praise Him; He is my God and I will exalt Him. Thanks be to the Lord for He is good and His mercy endures forever.

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.

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.

Call out to God with the Voice of Joy

Sing praises to God. Sing praises. Sing praises to our King. Sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth. Sing praises with a well-written song. God rules over the nations. God sits on His holy throne. Call out to God with the voice of praise for He is near.

I will always proclaim what God has done; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. I will tell of His wonderful deeds because He stands up to judge and to rescue the oppressed of the earth. I will make my promises to the Lord my God, and I will keep them. Let everyone bring tribute to the Awesome One. People everywhere tell of His wonderful deeds for He is near.

God is honored. He is more glorious and majestic than the everlasting mountains. No wonder He is greatly feared!  The earth trembles and stands silent before Him. Many leaders will rise and fall but the Lord is forever. Thanks be to Our God for He is near.

Show your happiness, friends! Call out to God with the voice of joy!

For the Lord Most High is to be feared. He is a great King over all the earth. God has gone up with a loud voice and with the sound of a horn. Sing praises to God. Sing praises. Sing praises to our King. Sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth. Sing praises with a well-written song. God rules over the nations. God sits on His holy throne. Call out to God with a voice of praise for He is near.

 How happy is the one whose wrongdoing is forgiven and whose sin is covered! How happy is the one whose sin the Lord does not hold against them, and in whose spirit there is nothing false.

I lift up my hands to His holy place. May honor and thanks be given to the Lord, because He has heard my prayer. The Lord is my strength and my safe cover. My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. So my heart is full of joy. I will thank Him with my song. The Lord is my strength. He is a safe place, my Shepherd who carries me. He forgave the guilt of my sin. So let all who are God-like pray to Him while He may be found, because in the floods of much water, they will not touch Him. He is my hiding place. He keeps me safe from trouble. All around me are His songs of being made free. His loving kindness surrounds me because I put my trust in the Lord. So be glad in the Lord and be full of joy all you who are right with God! Sing for joy all you who are pure in heart.

Jehovah-Kabodhi – Lord my Glory

I will be faithful to honor You, Lord, for the glory of Your name. In the splendor of Your holiness, I will fall down and worship You. Be close to me! You bring me strength. In Your faithfulness, You answer me and save me.   Lord my glory!

Salvation belongs to You alone for Your blessing is upon me. You shield me. You are the One who lifts up my head when I do not have the strength. I cry to You and You hear me.

I will make Your name known. I will praise You. I fear You and will give You all my praise. I will honor You and fear You, for You have not turned away from my suffering or trouble. You have heard my cry. My praise will be from You. I will keep my promises to You in front of those who fear You. Those who look for You will praise You. May Your heart live forever!

O Lord, be close to me! O my Strength, save my life for You are faithful to answer me. Save me, O my God!

Salvation belongs to You alone for Your blessing is upon me. You are a shield and the One who lifts up my head.  I will be faithful to honor You for the glory of Your name. In the splendor of Your holiness, I will fall down and worship You.

All the proud ones of the earth will worship. All who go down to the dust will fall to their knees before You, even those who cannot keep their soul alive. Future children will serve You, and they will tell of Your greatness to their children. They will tell of Your saving power to a people who are yet to be born. Your mighty voice  echoes above the sea. Your voice is powerful and majestic. Your voice strikes with bolts of lightning as You rule over the floodwaters. In all Your glory, You reign as King forever.

 Your blessing is upon me. It brings peace to my chaos. O Lord, You are a shield for me and the One who lifts up my head when I have lost all strength.  I will be faithful to honor You for the glory of Your name and will fall down and worship You in the splendor of Your holiness.
