Say the best words to the Lord because it is good to sing praises to our God, it is nice and it is beautiful.

 

 

 

The Lord builds up His city of peace, Jerusalem.

 

 

He gathers together the ones who have been shut out and thrown away.

 

 

 

 

He heals the ones with broken hearts and wraps up their hurts.

 

 

 

The Lord counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names.

 

 

Great is our Lord, and He has the biggest power. It goes on and on and on and on forever.

 

 

 

 

He always knows how everyone feels and why they feel that way, and that too goes on and on and on and on.

 

 

 

 

The Lord lifts up the ones who bow down to Him

 

 

 

but He throws the bad ones down to the ground.

 

 

 

Sing to the Lord with hearts full of ‘thank you’s.’ Sing to the Lord with to our God

 

 

 

 

 

Who covers the heavens with clouds

 

 

 

 

 

 

and makes the rain for the earth.

 

 

 

He makes the grass grow on the mountains

 

 

 

 

He gives all the animals their food and the birds and young ravens that cry.

 

 

 

The Lord is not most happy with how strong the horses are,

 

 

 

 

 

or how strong the legs of man are.

 

 

 

The Lord is most happy with those who bow down to Him and rest in His special love.

 

Say the best words to the Lord, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O mountain of victory.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Praise Him because He makes your gates strong.

 

 

 

He puts His best good things on your children.

 

 

 

 

He makes everything peaceful and quiet for you,

 

 

 

and fills you with the very best foods.

 

 

He sends His word out into the world

 

 

 

 

and it runs the fastest.

 

 

He gives snow and frost and throws out ice onto the world. Who can stand up in His cold?

Then He sends His word and it all melts. He makes the wind blow and the waters flow down to the rivers.

 

 

 

 

He shows His word to His people, His rules and His good decisions.

He has not done this with the other countries of the world, but only with His people. Israel.

 

 

 

 

Say the best stuff to Him.
