Praise Worthy

 O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: 
and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. 
Praise ye the Lord.

Psalm 117 

Believe it or not, this is more than a
Sing-before-dinner-at-a-family-reunion prayer😀

He is praise-worthy...

 For He has chosen you and I
To be a part of This
To hold the Light of this world high
And shine to all He IS
For He has fashioned for His praise
Each day and all therein
And does not withhold hope or grace
Or forgiveness of sin
For He so loved each one of us
He sent his Son to be
Sin’s perfect sacrifice; Jesus
Redeems and sets us free
…and He has chosen you and I
To be part of His joy
Part of His truth that will not die
And no one can destroy

…then praise the Lord of heav’n and earth
Never let His song dim
For He has placed in us His worth
To be a part of Him
