After our study of psalms of lament and praise, we constructed our own Psalm of Praise. The main section grew out of our own experiences of the Lord’s answer to our prayers in various times of need – community and individual.
A Psalm of Praise
God is good, all the time.
All the time, God is good.
You have granted us help
In our time of need.
You miraculously provided the funds
For our church improvement projects.
You provided the funds
When we thought there were none
You gave the light
To make the parking lot bright.
You supplied the flooring in the annex
By your servants Tom and Alex
Out of the pit you brought paving
It leaves all of us raving.
What looked like a dead end
You turned into a curve.
Though we don’t deserve it
You have strengthened our spirit.
You God have lifted me up and
Given me joy at the birth of a new grandson
A buyer came at our depth of discouragement
The movers and all the helpers were like angels
On that very hot day
We still pause to reflect
On all that has happened for us.
Obedience is the motivation for God’s blessing.
If you watch, observe, they become obvious.
After Alice’s fall, you sent help
You sold her house,
You placed her with other Christians
At the Jefferson.
Good health and a new job were miracles indeed.
God’s love goes on forever.
We are not blue
For your promises are true
My heart greatly rejoices,
And I will sing your songs forever.
