O LORD…may you be praised forever and ever!
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty.
Everything in the heavens and on the earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom.
We adore you as the one who is over all things.
Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything.
Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength.
O our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name!
But, who am I, and who are my people, that we could give you anything?
Everything we have comes from you, and we give you only what you first gave us!
We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land…
Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.
I know, my God, that you examine our hearts and rejoice when you find integrity there.
O LORD…make your people always want to obey you.
See to it that their love for you never changes.
Give [us] the wholehearted desire to obey all your commands, laws, and decrees…
Give praise to the LORD your God!
And the entire assembly praised the LORD…and bowed low and knelt before the LORD and the king.
(1 Chronicles 29:10-20)
