Psalm 108

My heart is steadfast. Unwavering. Loyal to You.
I will sing and make music and put everything into it.
I will awaken the dawn with my music.
I will praise You among all nations.
Your love is great – higher than the heavens.
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted – praised and lifted up – above the heavens.
Let Your glory and perfection be over all the earth.

Save us, help us, deliver us.
The earth and all its countries belong to God.
With God our armies will conquer.

Psalm 107

Give thanks to the Lord because He is good.
Give thanks to the Lord because His love endures forever.
I am a redeemed of the Lord – redeemed from my foes.
Some were homeless. They cried – He gave them a home.
Some were prisoners in punishment. They cried – He forgave them and set them free.
Some rebelled away from God. They cried – He healed them.
Some were at sea. They cried – He stilled the storm.
He curses and punishes the wicked.
He blesses and rewards the upright.

Psalm 106

Praise the Lord. Tell Him how good He is.
Give thanks to the Lord because He is good, because His love endures forever.
Endures. In spite of our inconsistencies, in spite of the hurt we cause Him, His love endures.
No one can fully declare His praise because no one fully knows Him.

Blessed are they who try to know You, who maintain justice and constantly try to do what is right – Your will.
Remember me when You show favor to Your people, come to my aid too, save me too, let me enjoy the prosperity of Your chosen ones, let me share in the joy of Your nation, let me join Your inheritance by praising You.

We have sinned, done wrong, acted wickedly.
We have taken Your miracles for granted.
We have taken Your kindness for granted.
We have rebelled.

You have saved us for Your name’s sake, to make Your powers known.
You have dried up the Red Seas that try to overwhelm us – the seas of sin, negative attitudes, doubt, low self-esteem.
You have saved us from our adversaries.
Then we believe Your promises and sing Your praise.

But we soon forget what You have done, and act without waiting for Your counsel.
We give in to our cravings and put You to the test.
Then we grumble and don’t obey.
We rebel against Your Spirit.

Yet You hear our cry and Your enduring love intervenes again.

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 105

Give thanks to the Lord.
Thank You for past, present and future.
Thank You for family and friends.
Thank You for home and work.
Thank You for salvation and heaven.

Call on His name.
Abba, Father. Jehovah God. Lord God Almighty.

Come. Look upon Your servant. Bless, teach, guide.

Make known what He has done.
God has sowed. God has blessed. Goad has taught. God has disciplined.

Tell of all his wonderful acts.
In grammar school, He kept me from being hit by a car.
In high school and college, He kept me safe as I travelled through unsafe neighborhoods.
He helped me do well in school.
He guided my career and found my jobs.
He brought my husband and me together at the right time.
He guided my husband’s careers and found his jobs.
He guided my parents and led them safely to heaven.
He separated my husband and me at the right time.
He rebuilt my life.

Glory in His name. Seek the Lord and rejoice. Look to the Lord and to His strength.

Remember His wonders, His miracles and His judgments.
Remember your history has been charted by God.
Keep His precepts. Observe His laws.

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 104

Praise the Lord my soul. Here’s why:
God is very great
God is clothed with splendor and majesty
God wraps Himself in light
The heavens are God’s tent
The clouds are God’s chariots
God rides on the wings of the wind
God makes wind His messenger
God makes fire His servant
God set the earth on its foundation so it can’t be moved
God covered the earth with oceans higher than the mountains
At God’s word the waters receded to where He assigned them
God set a boundary for the waters
God makes springs to flow between the mountains into ravines
God waters the animals
God provides nests for the birds
God waters the mountains from heaven
God satisfies the earth with His work and its fruit
God grows grass for the cattle
God grows plants for man to cultivate
God brings forth food
God brings forth wine to gladden hearts
God brings forth oil to make faces shine
God brings forth bread to sustain hearts
God waters His trees that He planted
Birds make their nests in the trees that God planted
The stork has its home in the pine trees
The high mountains belong to the high goats
The crags are a refuge for the rock badgers
The moon marks off the seasons
The sun knows when to go down
God brings darkness and at night the beast of the forest prowl
The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God
The sun rises, the beasts of the forest return to their dens, and man goes out to his work until evening.

God’s works are many!
God made them in wisdom
The earth is full of God’s creatures
The sea teems with creatures beyond number – large and small
The ships go to and fro in the vast and spacious sea
The sea monster frolics there
All creatures look to God for their food
When You give they gather and are satisfied
When You hide their face, they are terrified
When You take away their breath, they die and return to dust
When You send Your spirit, they are created and renewed

God’s glory endures forever
God rejoices in his work
God looks at the earth and it trembles
God touches the mountains and they smoke

Sing praise all your life
Rejoice and make your meditation pleasing
Sinner and wicked will vanish

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 103

Praise the Lord – soul and innermost being
Don’t forget His benefits
God forgives all my sins
God heals all my diseases
God redeems my life from the pit
God crowns my life with love and compassion
God satisfies my desires with good things
God renews my youth

Oppressed? God works righteousness
God works justice

God makes His way known to us
God shows us His deeds
God is compassionate and gracious
God is slow to anger
God abounds in love
God doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve
God doesn’t repay us according to our iniquities
God loves us
God has compassion on us
God has established His throne
God’s kingdom rules over all.
