Praise the Lord All Nations

world-map-297446_1280

There’s a new child of God somewhere in the world,
Rejoicing and singing to the Lord,
People from all nations tell of salvation,
Rejoicing and singing to the Lord.

Praise the Lord all nations,
Praise the Lord all nations,
Go, and praise the Lord!

Alabado sea el Señor (Spanish)
Louez le Seigneur (French)
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Preist den Herrn (German)
Lodate il Signore (Italian)
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Let’s praise the Lord.

Let ev’ry tribe and tongue have a universal song,
Rejoicing and singing to the Lord,
Proclaiming the gospel, making disciples,
Rejoicing and singing to the Lord.

For Your love is greater,
You’re faithful forever,
Praise the Lord!

Psalm 117

Pure

schafchen-1399439_1920

Are there any faithful?
Is there anyone good?
Everyone lies to their neighbor,
Is there not One that’s pure?

Will You stop their boasting,
Those that deceive the poor,
And remove their flattering tongues,
Will You arise, O LORD?

Hide us in Your safety,
Refresh us with Your Word,
Purify us through Your furnace,
Until You are adored.

Then guard us forever,
Keep watch on ev’ry side,
Lord, lead us from the world’s vileness,
Protect us from our pride.

Only You are faithful,
And You alone are good,
Only You can save us from sin,
For You alone are Pure.

Behind the lines

Save, O LORD, for the godly one is gone; for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man.

Everyone utters lies to his neighbor; with flattering lips and a double heart they speak. May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that makes great boasts, those who say, “With our tongue we will prevail, our lips are with us; who is master over us?”

“Because the poor are plundered, because the needy groan, I will now arise,” says the LORD; “I will place him in the safety for which he longs.”

The words of the LORD are pure words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times.

You, O LORD, will keep them; you will guard us from this generation forever. On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among the children of man. (Psalm 12 ESV)

The Groom

bride-690292_1920

We’re gathered here, the bride of Christ,
Because The Groom has paid our price;
Our sins are gone from east to west,
Your gift to us, Your righteousness.

Our sins were nailed through tender hands,
We sin again, but Your love stands;
You know us well, our shameful ways,
You chose us still, and we’re amazed.

We turn away, but You embrace,
We can’t resist Your mercy and grace;
You first loved us, and drew us near,
Your perfect love dispels our fear.

Love everlasting,
Faithful You remain,
Love everlasting,
You remain unchanged.

We’re gathered here, the bride of Christ,
Because The Groom has paid our price;
He paid our price.

And I will betroth you to me forever. I will betroth you to me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy. I will betroth you to me in faithfulness. And you shall know the LORD.

“And in that day I will answer, declares the LORD,
I will answer the heavens,
and they shall answer the earth,
and the earth shall answer the grain, the wine, and the oil,
and they shall answer Jezreel,
and I will sow her for myself in the land.
And I will have mercy on No Mercy,
and I will say to Not My People, ‘You are my people’;
and he shall say, ‘You are my God.’”
(Hosea 2:19-23 ESV)
