GOD SAVES HIS PEOPLE

Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth!
Sing about the glory of His name!
Tell the world how glorious He is.

Creation, can you not see? The LORD is glorious. He is amazing, majestic, almighty. Praise Him.

Say to God, “How awesome are Your deeds!
Your enemies cringe before Your mighty power.

You do such wonderful things, LORD. How can anyone stand up to You? You have won every victory. You have defeated every enemy.

Everything on earth will worship You; they will sing Your praises, shouting Your name in glorious songs.”

Let the animals know, let the people know, let the nations know – let the whole world know – Your name is worthy to be worshiped.

Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles He performs for people!

Read His Word! Time after time, He rescues those He loves, in supernatural miracles.

For by His great power He rules forever.
He watches every movement of the nations; let no rebel rise in defiance.

Oh, be careful, mighty nations. Beware, mighty rulers. You are not sitting on the throne of Heaven. You must answer to the Sovereign LORD, the Everlasting Ruler of the Universe.

Our lives are in His hands, and He keeps our feet from stumbling.

We belong to Him. Every day was ordained before we were born. He watches over us, and straightens the path before us.

You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver.

Find in us, O LORD, anything that needs to be melted away. Burn the sins that keep us from following You. Make us gleam with the purity of Your righteousness.

Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what He did for me.
For I cried out to Him for help, praising Him as I spoke.

Oh, LORD – I love You, You alone are worthy. Help me.

If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.

Against You, and You alone, have I sinned.

But God did listen!
He paid attention to my prayer.
Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw His unfailing love from me.

Thank you, LORD, for hearing me!
Thank you for bending down to listen to my prayers.
Thank you for not ignoring me.

And thank you, forever, for NEVER withdrawing Your love.
For being my faithful Father – even when I didn’t deserve You.

Praise God!

AMEN.
