Sing Your Praise To The Lord!

Some of the greatest memories that come to mind from my faith walk have to do with singing.  As a little girl in the basement of Good Shepherd UMC, I sang along with the other children to "Do Lord, O Do Lord" and "Deep and Wide" and "The B-I-B-L-E".  My Vacation Bible School memories mostly have to do with the music.  And to this day whenever I need a heart change in the midst of a hectic day, turning on worship music causes squabbles among kids to cease and joy to return as we fix our eyes above and not on the things around us.

Do you incorporate praise into your day?  What does that look like for you?  

 

I'm sure you've heard it said that it is difficult to worship the Lord one day a week if you've not been practicing the other six days.  It is true that my worship on Sundays is often far richer if I've been praising and worshipping Jesus throughout the week.  So, whether it's in your kitchen, in your car, as you fold the clothes, or whenever, how can you praise the Lord each day?

 

However this will look for you, may it be a real joy as you focus more on Jesus...

as you draw closer to Him...

as you cast your cares upon Him in song...

and as you smile and rejoice in His goodness and love.

Love, Wendy

 

Here are the lyrics to an oldie-but-goodie, "Sing Your Praise To The Lord" by Rich Mullins:

Sing your praise to the Lord
Come on everybody
Stand up and sing one more hallelujah

Sing your praise to the Lord
I could never tell you just how much good
That it's gonna do you just to sing

Anew
The song your heart learned to sing
When He first gave His life to you
Well, life goes on and so must the song

You gotta sing again the song born in your soul
When You first gave your heart to Him
Sing His praises once more

Sing your praise to the Lord
Come on everybody
Stand up and sing one more hallelujah

Sing your praise to the Lord
I could never tell you just how much good
That it's gonna do you just to sing

Aloud
The song that someone is dying to hear
Down in the madding crowd
That you once were before you heard the song

You gotta let them know
The truth is a light to shine upon
The way that maybe they could go
And sing His praises once more

Sing your praise to the Lord
Come on everybody
Stand up and sing one more hallelujah

Sing your praise to the Lord
I could never tell you just how much good
That it's gonna do you

Just to sing
Your praises to the Lord
And everybody sing
Your praises to the Lord

From the rising of the sun
To the place where it sets
The name of the Lord is to be praised
The Lord is exalted over all the nations
His glory above the heavens

Who is like the Lord our God
The One who sits enthroned on high
He who stoops to look down upon
Down upon this earth and its sky

That is why you gotta sing
Sing your praise to the Lord
Come on everybody
Stand up and sing one more hallelujah

Sing your praise to the Lord
I could never tell you just how much good
That it's gonna do you

Just to let the name of the Lord
Be praised both for now and ever more
Praise Him, oh, you servants

Praise the name of the Lord
Come on everybody
Stand up and sing one more hallelujah

Sing your praise to the Lord
I could never tell you just how much good
That it's gonna do you

Just to sing
Your praises to the Lord
And everybody sing
Your praises to the Lord
