I will sing praise to the Lord my God. He knew me in my mother’s womb, nurtured me, taught me His ways and raised me to speak His heart. I will take refuge in Him, for I know He will deliver me from all my trials.
“I will give to the LORD the thanks due to his righteousness,
and I will sing praise to the name of the LORD, the Most High.”
Though the earth closes its clefts around me; though the water seeps above my chin; though the light of day diminishes into night, my God will never forsake me. He will restore my soul and save me from the hands of the grave.
God knows when I am hungry and will feed me. He knows when I am thirsty and will give me drink. He knows when I fall asleep and when I awaken from my slumber. He knows all things and will not leave me to the lions, but will chastise the wild beasts, for I am His son.
I will sing praise to the Lord my God, for He is good. I will give thanks for all His gracious deeds. His loving kindness is beyond measure. His power sustains all things. Sing praise to the Lord our God.
