A Psalm

Oh, what a wonderful Lord we serve!
How excellent are your ways oh Lord.
How magnificent are your thoughts towards Your people,
toward those who are called by Your Name.
You are King, enthroned on Most High.

Your rule is secure.
Your reign is eternal.
Your power, limitless.
Your love, boundless.
Your anger, fierce.
Your justice, perfect.
Your jealousy, perfect ...

You will not share Your Bride with any man.
You will not compete for her affections with idols.
You desire complete and total devotion.
You will have no other gods before You.

You and You alone are to be praised.
May my lips and my heart glorify you all of my days.
May my body declare your praises as the temple of the living God.
May my eyes see your glory and Your Kingdom come in the earth as in Heaven.
So let it be Oh Lord, So let it be.

So let the wicked fall to their knees in pain,
under the weight of their sins and the blood that has been shed by their own hands.
Those who have thumbed their noses at you,
let their hands and faces be severed in this time.
Let them see and know the folly of their ways.
If they be Yours, then draw them to Yourself.
If not, then cut them off in your anger for what they have done to Your people and how they have profaned Your Holy Name.

Oh, bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me.
Bless His Holy Name.

Amen and Amen.
