PRAISE TO GOD
God surely deserves our praise*
Heartfelt worship of love’s proofs
With sincere gratitude-phrase
Acknowledging grace He pours.
Along praise in poems and prose
Odes to the Lord show faith props
As the Holy Spirit prods
Toward joyous service-press.
Freed from greed and pride that pierce
I exalt Christ while soul prays
Thanking Him for blessings’ perks
Worth-sharing beyond peace price.
*Psalm 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
