Sweet Praise

Lord,

thank you for this moment,

this breath,

to remember you

and give thanks.

It is good;

and all is well with my soul.

Put a new song in my heart today,

and fill me with a spirit of praise,

let my lips be sweet

with lyric and melody,

proclaiming your precious Name,

singing of your glory and goodness,

my heart open wide,

as my hands are lifted up,

my feet swift to dance,

joy chasing my steps.

As I lay my head down to rest,

let me remember your steadfast love,

your faithfulness, your wonderful works

that sustained me through my day,

and marvel at your wisdom,

your thoughts, and your ways

that kept me in the path

of your light and blessing.

Lord, you are the source of life

and the Light of the world,

let me stay close,

ever praising your Name!

Amen.
