Endless Praise

Psalm 148

1-5 Hallelujah!
Praise God from heaven,
praise him from the mountaintops;
Praise him, all you his angels,
praise him, all you his warriors,
Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, you morning stars;
Praise him, high heaven,
praise him, heavenly rain clouds;
Praise, oh let them praise the name of God—
he spoke the word, and there they were!

6 He set them in place
from all time to eternity;
He gave his orders,
and that’s it!

Mayhem & Death for Forgiveness & Rest

Beholding the heavens I now understand God measured them all with the breadth of His hand. He fashioned the trillions of stars in the sky, The sun and the moon He established on high.

All heaven and earth, which He made in six days, Show daily and nightly
His merit of praise. So wondrously caring is God ev'ry day, Creating, sustaining my life ev'ry way. 
Each breath I intake, ev'ry beat of my heart, All pleasures well tasted are His to impart. Indeed, for such blessings He should be adored And honored supremely  as eminent Lord.

In fact, for this purpose He brought me to be, That I might His glory and kindliness see And cherish Him fully
in all of my days, Obeying with pleasure whatever He says, 
Fulfilling the calling He's laid upon me To show forth His glory deliberately.
