(11)But let all who take refuge in You be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your Name may rejoice in You. (12)For surely, O LORD, You surround them with Your favor as with a shield. (Psalm 5:11-12)
What a way to wake up and begin your day. Pray and thank God for who He is, read a Psalm of praise and an old hymn of praise. It is good to know Jehovah God as Father God through being forgiven and purchased by the blood of the Lamb (God the Son) and to be baptized into the body of Christ and sealed for eternity by God the Holy Spirit. Not three gods, but One God who has revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is better known as the Trinity. There is some mystery to this. No man can fully explain this. But I believe it and rest in it.
Here is a second short hymn of praise known as the Doxology. Some churches will sing this after the offering is taken and a prayer of thanks is given. It is in 4/4 time and can be sung at any time.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below.
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.
Stay faithful and hopeful,
Bill (a fellow-servant)
Praise Him! Praise Him!
By Fanny J. Crosby, sung in 6/8 time
1. Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer! Sing, O earth, His wonderful love proclaim! Hail Him! Hail Him! Highest arch angels in glory; Strength and honor give to His holy name! Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children; In His arms He carries them all day long.
(Refrain) Praise Him! Praise Him! Tell of His excellent greatness; Praise Him! Praise Him! ever in joyful song!
2. Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus our blessed Redeemer! For our sins He suffered, and bled, and died. He, our Rock, our Hope of eternal salvation – Hail Him! Hail Him! Jesus the Crucified. Sound His praises! Jesus, who bore our sorrows; Love unbounded, wonderful, deep, and strong!
3. Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer! Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring! Jesus, Savior, reigneth forever and ever. Crown Him! Crown Him! Prophet, and Priest, and King! Christ is coming, over the world victorious; Pow’r and glory unto the Lord belong!
