Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

1
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,
  the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy
  health and salvation!
    All ye who hear,
Now to His temple draw near;
Sing now in glad adoration!
2
Praise to the Lord, who o’er all
  things so wondrously reigneth,
Who, as on wings of an eagle,
  uplifteth, sustaineth.
    Hast thou not seen
How thy desires all have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?
3
Praise to the Lord, who hath fearfully,
  wondrously, made thee!
Health hath vouchsafed and, when
  heedlessly falling, hath stayed thee.
    What need or grief
Ever hath failed of relief?
Wings of His mercy did shade thee.
4
Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper
  thy work and defend thee,
Who from the heavens the streams of
  His mercy doth send thee.
    Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
Who with His love doth befriend thee.
5
Praise to the Lord! Oh, let all that
  is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come
  now with praises before Him!
    Let the Amen
Sound from His people again;
Gladly for aye we adore Him.

“Praise to the Lord the Almighty the King of Creation”. these lyrics rose up in me this morning after some worship time. Had to look them up! My fiery preacher father sang this hymn with robust fervor to our God!! So grateful he loved the hymns. The truths are still echoing to us….. Today I am “pondering anew what the Almighty can do”

Have being getting this song in my spirit all week. Remember singing it in church growing up so googled the lyrics and I have to say this is an amazing song of praise to our Maker, Lord of Lords and King of kings. Such a regal bold hymn to the best Papa, Father and Husband a girl could ever want or need. All glory honour and praise to our God. May we praise Him more and more in all we think say and do and remember to encourage, exhort and build one another up in the faith and pray for one another and carry one another's burdens. To God be the glory

Was having a moment of reflection and meditation about my life and all the chaos surrounding us all over the world. Before I started to pray I started singing this hymn and searched the web for the lyrics. May God have mercy on all of us and forgive us our sins and trespasses. 🙏

While praying for little Lucas, unconscious and on a ventilator following a drowning accident, the Holy Spirit brought this hymn of praise to mind. Please pray for the restoration of this little one’s consciousness and health. With God all things are possible! 🙌🏼✝️❤️

A few night's back, I was singing this hymn in my dream. It's just been in my spirit ever since...

This was one of the very lovely hymns I used to sing joyfully with the congregation, then in church, as a young girl.

Today the spirit nudged me again... and I googled the lyrics... Every simgle stanza... so so rereassuring! So refreshing!!!

I have been praying for a mind blowing, eye marvelling, ear tingling miracle for my family and I...

Towards the end of stanza 4, it says " ponder anew, what the Almighty can do"

Thank you oh God Almighty for this visitation! There is apsolutely nothing impossible for our God to do. This is so reassuring!!!. While waiting, we receive our miracle by faith🤲 and continue to give our God High praise🙌🙌🙌. Thank you JESUS🙏.

After a second long night with my dying mother in inpatient hospice, I got up and went to the family break room for coffee. While pouring my cup, some of the lyrics and tune of this hymn came into my mind out of nowhere. Had been getting mom’s service ready ahead of time, but this was never known to be one of her favorites. I’d sung it before long ago, but had never paid attention to it. Anyway when with coffee I returned back to her side, I googled the lyrics and sang it softly to her. I was overwhelmed at how appropriate and true the thoughts in the lyrics had been, this past hard week, and my whole life. Now I will memorize and sing this song anew. Join me in glad adoration!

For some reason, I sing this hymn every day now. I live in the USA, but sang this hymn at Westlake Boy's High School, NZ.

I will go to my church tomorrow, Tuesday, and sing this hymn.

Our Lord.
