“Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song. Sing his praises in the assembly of the faithful” (Psalm 149:1 NLT).
While the older songs–written out of experience, torment, and hope–are good, every day we live, in our right minds and have use of our limbs, should ignite in us a new song of praise for all He is doing in our lives!
So today, this is my new song:
Oh Lord, how I love that You love me,
Giving me chance after chance to live right before You,
Reminding me of Your Word throughout the day,
Never allowing me to forget–that my life–is all about You!
When I woke, wracked with pain, You spoke to my heart,
And I heard You say, “Relax, I’m right here.”
When I thought I saw death coming for me,
I heard You say, “Not yet–you have much to do.”
So, now Lord, I praise You, for Your love,
I praise You for Your mercy and grace,
I praise You just because You’re You
And I’ll praise You, all the days of my life,
Just because of who You are!
Lord, I pray this song of praise is acceptable to You and that You will receive it as a living testimony of what is in my heart as I strive to live for You and honor You in all that I do. In Jesus’ name, I pray and thank You for all You are to me.
