Presenting Praise

Blessed the ones,

who come to us,

in God’s holy Name;

from the Lord’s house,

we bless you now,

His truth is proclaimed.

The light of God,

He shines on us,

bathes us with His light;

with joy, give praise,

all of our days,

we are His delight.

You are our God,

and we give thanks,

we lift high Your praise;

our offering,

to You, we bring,

’til the end of days.

For You are good,

it’s understood,

always love endures;

we give You praise,

for all Your ways,

hope in You, secure.

(Responding to Psalm 118:26-29)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are always good. Thank You that You shine Your light upon us and lead us to live in Your love. Forgive us for not presenting proper praise in places where all praise belongs to You. Help us to understand and embrace more clearly, the greatness of Your grace and the infinite depth of Your love. Lead us to love each other well, and grant us grace as we learn to give You thanks in all things and at all times. May our posture of praise propel people to turn toward You and embrace all that You freely give. Let our love lead those who are looking, directly to You, the holy Holder of all hope. Amen.
