Poem of Praise

Oh Lord, strengthen me according to your Word.
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
My lips shall utter praise, my tongue shall speak of your Word.

Your Word is sweeter than honey in my mouth.
Lord, you have done great things for us and we are glad.
As the streams flow to the sea, those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.

I will sing songs of praise to you, Lord.
I will praise you with my whole heart.
When people hear your Word, they shall sing praises to you.

When I wake every morning I sing praises to you, Lord.
I shout joyfully to the rock of my salvation, and I triumph in your glory.
I pray that you will open my eyes each day, that I may see your wondrous works.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.

How can I call the lone night good,
