Praise Ye The Lord, The Almighty

 Praise ye the LORD.
Sing unto the LORD a new song.
- Psalm 149:1 -

Praise ye the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near;
Join me in glad adoration!

Praise ye the Lord, who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under His wings, yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen how thy desires e'er have been
Granted in what he ordaineth?

Praise ye the Lord, who with marvelous wisdom hath made thee,
Decked thee with health, and with loving hand guided and stayed thee;
How oft in grief hath not He brought thee relief,
Spreading His wings for to shade thee!

Praise ye the Lord! O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come with praises before Him!
Let the Amen sound from His people again:
Gladly for aye we adore Him.
- Joachim Neander -

Let every thing that hath breath 
praise the LORD.
Praise ye the LORD.
- Psalm 150:6 -

Have a beautiful and blessed Lord's Day,
dear friends!

He is so worthy! You take such beautiful pictures, my Friend and it's always good to read His Word. The porcupine is so cute.. We always see the tree pieces on the ground but have never seen one at work :) Thank you for sharing and have a blessed and peaceful day.


Debbie Harris said...

Oh praise ye the Lord!! He is worthy of our praise and adoration.
Such a sweet post, Stephanie, with all your magnificent photos of God's creatures great and small.
Those three bears sure warmed my heart, and then the one out on a limb was quite cute, although I wonder just how he stayed there without that limb breaking. :) He reminds me of the bear who last fall woke up due to the nice weather and went up the pine tree in our front yard and went way out to the edge of the branch, oh I was sure he was going to come crashing down. :) He was half awake roaming around.

It's a beautiful day today, and what a great worship service as we praised the Lord.

Love you ~ Mom

Oh, sweet Stephanie, what a glorious hymn, and I can hear the harmony now...as I remember our days singing in our choir. What precious words of our glorious Father Who created such beauty all around us. I so love all your photography and thought about how it must have delighted Him to create all the amazing creatures, plants, and finally us! Praise God! Thank you for a precious post this Lord's Day! Hugs!
