Praise God

Listen, you kings! Pay attention, you mighty rulers! For I will sing to the Lord. I will make music to the Lord, the God of Israel.

Judges 5:3 (NLT)
Sing praise to God who reigns above,
the God of all creation,
the God of power, the God of love,
the God of our salvation.
With healing balm my soul is filled
and every faithless murmur stilled:
To God all praise and glory.

What God’s almighty power hath made
his gracious mercy keepeth,
by morning glow or evening shade
his watchful eye ne’er sleepeth;
within the kingdom of his might,
lo! all is just and all is right:
To God all praise and glory.

The Lord is never far away,
but through all grief distressing,
an ever present help and stay,
our peace and joy and blessing.
As with a mother’s tender hand,
God gently leads the chosen band:
To God all praise and glory.
 Johann Schütz (1675)
Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near.
 Philippians 4:5
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Thus, all my toilsome way along,
I sing aloud thy praises,
that earth may hear the grateful song
my voice unwearied raises.
Be joyful in the Lord, my heart,
both soul and body take your part:
To God all praise and glory.
 transl. Frances Cox (1864)

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
