A little book of Praises 


Psa 57:7-11 (TLB) 
O God, my heart is quiet and confident. 
No wonder I can sing your praises!
 {8} Rouse yourself, my soul! Arise, O harp and lyre! 
Let us greet the dawn with song! 

{9} I will thank you publicly throughout the land. 
I will sing your praises among the nations. 
{10} Your kindness and love are as vast as the heavens.
 Your faithfulness is higher than the skies. 
{11} Yes, be exalted, O God, above the heavens. 
May your glory shine throughout the earth.
 

Psa 59:16-17 (TLB) 
But as for me, 
I will sing each morning about Your power and mercy.
 For You have been my high tower of refuge, 
a place of safety in the day of my distress.
 {17} O my Strength, to You I sing my praises; 
for You are my high tower of safety, 
my God of mercy.
 

Psa 75:1-6 (TLB) 
How we thank you, Lord! 
Your mighty miracles give proof that you care. 

{2} "Yes," the Lord replies, 
"and when I am ready, I will punish the wicked! 
{3} Though the earth shakes and all its people live in turmoil, 
yet its pillars are firm, for I have set them in place!" 

{4} I warned the proud to cease their arrogance! 
I told the wicked to lower their insolent gaze
 {5} and to stop being stubborn and proud. 

{6} For promotion and power come from nowhere on earth,
 but only from God. 
He promotes one and deposes another.
 

Psa 89:1,2,5-7 (TLB) 
Forever and ever I will sing about the tender kindness of the Lord! 
Young and old shall hear about your blessings. 
{2} Your love and kindness are forever; 
your truth is as enduring as the heavens.

{5} All heaven shall praise your miracles, O Lord; 
myriads of angels will praise you for your faithfulness.
 {6} For who in all of heaven can be compared with God?
 What mightiest angel is anything like him? 
{7} The highest of angelic powers stand in dread and awe of him. 
Who is as revered as He by those surrounding him?

Psa 40:1- (TLB)
 I waited patiently for God to help me;
 then he listened and heard my cry. 
{2} He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, 
and set my feet on a hard, firm path, 
and steadied me as I walked along.
 {3} He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. 
Now many will hear of the glorious things he did for me, 
and stand in awe before the Lord,
 and put their trust in him. 

{4} Many blessings are given to those who trust the Lord 
and have no confidence in those who are proud or who trust in idols.
 {5} O Lord my God, many and many a time you have done great miracles for us, and we are ever in your thoughts. 
Who else can do such glorious things? 
No one else can be compared with you.
 There isn't time to tell of all your wonderful deeds. 

{6} It isn't sacrifices and offerings that you really want from your people. 
Burnt animals bring no special joy to your heart. 
But you have accepted the offer of my life-long service. 

{7} Then I said, "See, I have come, just as all the prophets foretold. 
{8} And I delight to do your will, my God, 
for your law is written upon my heart!" 
{9} I have told everyone the good news that you forgive people's sins. 
I have not been timid about it, as you well know, O Lord.
 {10} I have not kept this good news hidden in my heart, 
but have proclaimed your loving-kindness and truth to all the congregation. 

{11} O Lord, don't hold back your tender mercies from me! 
My only hope is in your love and faithfulness. 
{12} Otherwise I perish, 
for problems far too big for me to solve are piled higher than my head. Meanwhile my sins, too many to count, have all caught up with me, 
and I am ashamed to look up. My heart fails within me. 

Psalm 40:16-17 (TLB)
{16} But may the joy of the Lord be given 
to everyone who loves him and his salvation.
 May they constantly exclaim, "How great God is!" 
{17} I am poor and weak, 
yet the Lord is thinking about me right now! 
O my God, you are my helper.
 You are my Savior; come quickly, and save me. Please don't delay!
