Praising God – Psalm 138

(By David.)

Praise the Lord with All Your Heart

138 With all my heart
    I praise you, Lord.
    In the presence of angels
    I sing your praises.
I worship at your holy temple
    and praise you for your love
    and your faithfulness.
You were true to your word
    and made yourself more famous
    than ever before.
When I asked for your help,
    you answered my prayer
    and gave me courage.

All kings on this earth
have heard your promises, Lord,
    and they will praise you.
You are so famous
that they will sing
    about the things you have done.
Though you are above us all,
    you care for humble people,
and you keep a close watch
    on everyone who is proud.

I am surrounded by trouble,
    but you protect me
    against my angry enemies.
With your own powerful arm
    you keep me safe.

You, Lord, will always
treat me with kindness.
    Your love never fails.
You have made us what we are.
    Don’t give up on us now!
