Praising The Lord…

Posted: September 5, 2008 in Uncategorized

I wanted to share three Psalms that touch really touch my heart (being a Christian Musician).  I believe we should be praising the Lord at all times.  Whether we are dealt good or bad, we should always find a way to praise the Lord.  That may seem tough at times, especially during the bad/tough times.  During tough times, I like to close my eyes and think of some songs such as “Open the eyes of my heart, Lord”.

———————————————————-

Psalm 148

 1 Praise the Lord!

   Praise the Lord from the heavens!
      Praise him from the skies!
 2 Praise him, all his angels!
      Praise him, all the armies of heaven!
 3 Praise him, sun and moon!
      Praise him, all you twinkling stars!
 4 Praise him, skies above!
      Praise him, vapors high above the clouds!
 5 Let every created thing give praise to the Lord,
      for he issued his command, and they came into being.
 6 He set them in place forever and ever.
      His decree will never be revoked.

 7 Praise the Lord from the earth,
      you creatures of the ocean depths,
 8 fire and hail, snow and clouds,
      wind and weather that obey him,
 9 mountains and all hills,
      fruit trees and all cedars,
 10 wild animals and all livestock,
      small scurrying animals and birds,
 11 kings of the earth and all people,
      rulers and judges of the earth,
 12 young men and young women,
      old men and children.

 13 Let them all praise the name of the Lord.
      For his name is very great;
      his glory towers over the earth and heaven!
 14 He has made his people strong,
      honoring his faithful ones—
      the people of Israel who are close to him.

   Praise the Lord!

Psalm 149

 1 Praise the Lord!

   Sing to the Lord a new song.
      Sing his praises in the assembly of the faithful.

 2 O Israel, rejoice in your Maker.
      O people of Jerusalem, exult in your King.
 3 Praise his name with dancing,
      accompanied by tambourine and harp.
 4 For the Lord delights in his people;
      he crowns the humble with victory.
 5 Let the faithful rejoice that he honors them.
      Let them sing for joy as they lie on their beds.

 6 Let the praises of God be in their mouths,
      and a sharp sword in their hands—
 7 to execute vengeance on the nations
      and punishment on the peoples,
 8 to bind their kings with shackles
      and their leaders with iron chains,
 9 to execute the judgment written against them.
      This is the glorious privilege of his faithful ones.

   Praise the Lord!

Psalm 150

 1 Praise the Lord!

   Praise God in his sanctuary;
      praise him in his mighty heaven!
 2 Praise him for his mighty works;
      praise his unequaled greatness!
 3 Praise him with a blast of the ram’s horn;
      praise him with the lyre and harp!
 4 Praise him with the tambourine and dancing;
      praise him with strings and flutes!
 5 Praise him with a clash of cymbals;
      praise him with loud clanging cymbals.
 6 Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!

   Praise the Lord!
