Week 27   Day 7

    

These Psalms are so joyful

            and I feel so low 

When the spirit of  the Lord

            moves within my heart 

I  will sing

         praise

         pray 

         dance

like David did 

 

The secret is to do it

            before you feel like it

and the feelings will follow.

 

 

God made the world

            wonderful and

            wonder-filled.

 

  

                                     The needlepoint picture

                                               on my wall

                                                    says 

 

                                 music

                        is a fair and glorious

                                gift of

                                  God.

 

 

 

                   DAVID'S SECRET - PRAISE THE LORD
Nature, angels, animals, people--All together now:  Praise.
                                        Psalms 148 & 150

 

     1Praise the Lord from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights!

2Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!

3Praise Him, sun and moon,

Praise Him, all you stars of light!

4Praise Him, you heavens of heavens,

And you waters above the heavens!

     5Let them praise the name of the Lord,

For He commanded and they were created.

6He also established them forever and ever;

He made a decree which shall not pass away.

     7Praise the Lord from the earth,

You great sea creatures and all the depths;

8Fire and hail, snow and clouds;

Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;

9Mountains and all hills;

Fruitful trees and all cedars;

10Beasts and all cattle;

Creeping things and flying fowl;

11Kings of the earth and all peoples;

Princes and all judges of the earth;

12Both young men and maidens; old men and children.

     13Let them praise the name of the Lord,

For His name alone is exalted;

His glory is above the earth and heaven.

14He has exalted the horn of His people,

The praise of all His saints--

Of the children of Israel, a people near to Him.

 

     1Praise the Lord!

Praise God in His sanctuary;

Praise Him in His mighty firmament!

     2Praise Him for His mighty acts;

Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!

     3Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;

Praise Him with the lute and harp!

4Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;

Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!

5Praise Him with loud cymbals;

Praise Him with clashing cymbals!

6Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Praise the Lord.
