Why we Worship

PSALM 47

Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!

SHOUT FOR JOY TO THE LORD ALL THE EARTH

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation

O my soul praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation

A ye who hear, now to His temple draw near

Join me in glad adoration

Shelters thee under His wings, yea so gently sustaineth

Hast thou not seen how thy desires all have been

Granted in what He ordaineth

Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee

Ponder anew what the Almighty can do

If with His love He befriend thee

All that has life and breath come now with praises before Him

Let the AMEN sound from His people again

Gladly forever adore Him
