PURE APPLAUSE FOR GOD!

Psalms of Honesty and Praise
 
Psalm 66 gatherIn the background of reading our next prayer of praise to our God who is our salvation because of His mercy and grace wrapped up in limitless, unconditional love for us is the another song…How Great is Our God, Sing with me…
 
Psalm 66, The Message
 
1-4 All together now—applause for God!
Sing songs to the tune of his glory,
set glory to the rhythms of his praise.
Say of God, “We’ve never seen anything like him!”
When your enemies see you in action,
they slink off like scolded dogs.
Psalm 66 applause for God
The whole earth falls to its knees—
it worships you, sings to you,
can’t stop enjoying your name and fame.
Psalm 66 look at God5-6 Take a good look at God’s wonders—
they’ll take your breath away.
He converted sea to dry land;
travelers crossed the river on foot.
Now isn’t that cause for a song?
 
Psalm 66 come and listenThe splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the Earth rejoice
All the Earth rejoice
 
He wraps himself in light
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice
 
How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God
 
 
7 Ever sovereign in his high tower, he keeps
his eye on the godless nations.
Rebels don’t dare
raise a finger against him.
 
psalm 66 come and see
8-12 Bless our God, O peoples!
Give him a thunderous welcome!
Didn’t he set us on the road to life?
Didn’t he keep us out of the ditch?
He trained us first,
passed us like silver through refining fires,
Brought us into hardscrabble country,
pushed us to our very limit,
Road-tested us inside and out,
took us to hell and back;
Finally he brought us
to this well-watered place.
 
 
Age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
 
The Godhead Three in One
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb
 
How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God
 
 
Psalm 66 hands to God13-15 I’m bringing my prizes and presents to your house.
I’m doing what I said I’d do,
What I solemnly swore I’d do
that day when I was in so much trouble:
The choicest cuts of meat
for the sacrificial meal;
Even the fragrance
of roasted lamb is like a meal!
Or make it an ox
garnished with goat meat!
 
16-20 All believers, come here and listen,
let me tell you what God did for me.
I called out to him with my mouth,
my tongue shaped the sounds of music.
If I had been cozy with evil,
the Lord would never have listened.
But he most surely did listen,
he came on the double when he heard my prayer.
Blessed be God: he didn’t turn a deaf ear,
he stayed with me, loyal in his love.
 
Name above all names
Worthy of our praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God
 
You’re the name above all names
You are worthy of our praise
And my heart will sing
How great is our God
 
psalm 66 praise for God
How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God
 
How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God
 
The whole world sings, the whole world sings
How great is our God
How great is our God
How great, how great is our God
