In Praise of the Creator of All Things


Oh, come, let us sing to the Lord! 
Give a joyous shout in honor of the Rock of our salvation! 
{2} Come before Him with thankful hearts. 
Let us sing Him psalms of praise. 

{3} For the Lord is a great God, the great King of all gods. 
{4} He controls the formation of the depths of the earth
 and the mightiest mountains; all are His.
 {5} He made the sea and formed the land; they too are His. 

{6} Come, kneel before the Lord our Maker,
 {7} for He is our God. We are His sheep, and He is our Shepherd.
 Oh, that you would hear Him calling you today and come to Him!
Psa 95:1-7 (TLB) 

 
The heavens are telling the glory of God; 
they are a marvelous display of His craftsmanship.
Day and night they keep on telling about God.
 Without a sound or word, silent in the skies, 
their message reaches out to all the world. 

The sun lives in the heavens where God placed it. 
and moves out across the skies 
as radiant as a bridegroom going to his wedding,
or as joyous as an athlete looking forward to a race! 
The sun crosses the heavens from end to end,
 and nothing can hide from its heat. 

God's laws are perfect. 
They protect us, make us wise, and give us joy and light. 
God's laws are pure, eternal, just. 
They are more desirable than gold. 
They are sweeter than honey dripping from a honeycomb.
 For they warn us away from harm 
and give success to those who obey them. 

But how can I ever know what sins are lurking in my heart? 
Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
And keep me from deliberate wrongs; 
help me to stop doing them. 
Only then can I be free of guilt 
and innocent of some great crime. 

May my spoken words and unspoken thoughts
 be pleasing even to you, 
O Lord my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19:1-14( THE LIVING BIBLE)
 

Let all the joys of the godly well up in praise to the Lord, 
for it is right to praise him. 
{2} Play joyous melodies of praise upon the lyre and on the harp. 
{3} Compose new songs of praise to him, 
accompanied skillfully on the harp; sing joyfully. 
{4} For all God's words are right, 
and everything he does is worthy of our trust. 

{5} He loves whatever is just and good; 
the earth is filled with His tender love. 
{6} He merely spoke,
 and the heavens were formed and all the galaxies of stars. 

{7} He made the oceans, pouring them into his vast reservoirs. 
{8} Let everyone in all the world--men, women and children-
-fear the Lord and stand in awe of him. 

{9} For when He but spoke, the world began! 
It appeared at his command! 
{10} And with a breath He can scatter the plans 
of all the nations who oppose him, 
{11} but His own plan stands forever. 
His intentions are the same for every generation. 

{12} Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, 
whose people He has chosen as His own.
 {13} The Lord gazes down upon mankind
 from heaven where He lives. 
He has made their hearts 
and closely watches everything they do.
Psa 33:1-13 (TLB) 

But the eyes of the Lord are watching over those who fear him, 
who rely upon his steady love.
 He will keep them from death even in times of famine! 
{19} {20} We depend upon the Lord alone to save us. 
Only he can help us; he protects us like a shield. 
{21} No wonder we are happy in the Lord! 
For we are trusting him. 
We trust his holy name.
 {22} Yes, Lord, let your constant love surround us, 
for our hopes are in you alone.
Psa 33:18-22 (TLB)
