I love you and thank you with all that I am,
I’ll praise you even as idols and false gods demand
my attention and heart,
I worship you in spirit and in truth,
and thank you for kindness and goodness,
You have revealed yourself and your Word to me,
when I cry out to you, whisper to you in my heart,
You answer me.
Your presence, your Spirit, your word
refreshes, restores, and makes me strong and confident
to face life head on again.
Lord, all of your promises will be fulfilled,
and the world will bend their knees and heads will bow,
praising and thanking you for your faithfulness.
Your beauty and glory will be seen around the world,
and praise from all tongues, tribes, and nations
will waft up from this blue pebble to the your throne room in heaven.
Lord, you are great and awesome and mighty,
yet you would kneel down and welcome the broken,
insignificant, and lowly.
You stay distant from those elevated in their eyes.
Even though I walk through challenges and struggles,
you’re with me every step,
guiding me oases of your rest and peace,
your hand covers me
pushing back the hideous wrath of my enemies,
you always save and deliver me.
I praise you that you will have your way in me,
your lovingkindness, mercy, and grace are forever and more,
I bless the works of your beautiful hands.
