It Is Good to Praise the Lord!!!


 


It is good to praise the Lord,


and make music to HIS name!


Over the whole earth and heavens does


 HE rule and reign!


 


I will proclaim your love in the morning


 and your faithfulness at night.


May your words direct my feet...


 And be my guiding light!


 


I will make music from the lyre


 and a melody from the harp…


I will sing of your mercy and love


straight from my heart!


 


Oh lord you make me joyful and glad


 by your wondrous deeds…


May I follow your righteous path


 as your Spirit leads!


 


I sing for great joy at the works


 of  your hands!


And behold your mighty power


over all of the lands!


 


How great are your works Oh Lord.


 Your thoughts are profound!


You picked me up and placed


 my life on solid ground!


 


The senseless man doesn’t know…


 Nor does he understand…


The mighty works of God performed by


 his outstretched hand!


 


Though the wicked spring up like grass…


 Evildoers will be destroyed


As God’s word stands forever


And HIS divine will is employed!!!


 


The Lord is exalted forever!


 And his enemies scatter!


Living for the Lord is really


 all that does matter!


 


I thank and worship you my Lord… 


 In all I say and do…


Even to my last breath. 


I shall love and honor YOU!


 


You are my Lord and God. 


And forever you will be…


The one whom I want to be with


throughout eternity!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
