July 2nd 2016 – Psalm 103 (part two)

Psalm 103 (part two) – this song concludes with an overflow of praise, worship and adoration, to our faithful, eternal Father God
psalm 103ii

My Lord and my God,
You are like a Father to us,
to those who worship, honour, adore You –
You shower us with Your love and compassion –
You know everything about us –
You created us, and You know our weaknesses,
You even know the number of our days
and that our bodies will return to the dust of the earth.
To You, our days must seem like the grass growing in fields –
here today, gone tomorrow,
like a flower that blooms one day,
but the wind blows across it, and it’s gone,
leaving no trace of its moment of glory.

But You are everlasting, my Lord, my God,
and Your love is with us eternally,
with those who worship, honour, adore You –
Your perfection, Your holiness, Your righteousness
are with us, and our successors
from one generation to another –
with those of us who seek to live
within the covenant You make with us
constantly following Your ways,
forever adhering to Your word.

My Lord and my God,
Your reign and rule is everlasting,
Your throne established forever,
rooted deeply in heaven,
extending powerfully across the earth.

Come on everyone – one and all
let’s praise, worship and glorify Him together;
all you angels join in – you who are strong and mighty,
you who follow His commands
you who keep to His word.
Let’s praise, worship and glorify Him together,
all the choirs and hosts of heaven,
all who seek to serve our Lord,
following His word.
Let’s praise, worship and glorify Him together,
for all He has done,
all His mighty deeds,
all over the world, and beyond,
everywhere!

O may my soul, my whole being,
from the core of who I am,
praise, worship and glorify Him,
now and forever.
