Versatile Psalmist 9.0
I will give thanks to the Lord from the bottom of my heart
I will sing Your praises always and now let me make a start,
You are my mountain of faith and the very air that I breathe
You are the sovereign of all that is flying above and beneath.
The wicked and the evil ones deny your existence and grace
They strive and contrive to remove Your name from this place,
Theirs is an exercise in futility and without a funeral shall be
Destroyed in a fiery furnace and to be tormented in eternity.
You are a stronghold for the humble and those oppressed
You breathe new life into the broken and the depressed,
You do hear and respond to the cry of those now afflicted
You are strong to save and your omnipotence unrestricted.
Sing praises to the Lord of Hosts who sits upon Mount Zion
He was a baby and a lamb, but shall return as a mighty lion,
The nations will sink in a swamp of their own evil making
To whom will they turn when the Earth is violently shaking?
In Your kingdom, the needy and hungry shall then be fed
By a manna that satisfies much more than rice or bread,
I implore You to rise up and bring justice to the masses
Bring a peace that lasts and a love that greatly surpasses!
