Scripture: Psalm 138
Theme: Psalms

1.  I will give thanks with my whole heart,
    Before the gods my praise express;
    I will bow down before Your throne
    And praise Your love and faithfulness.

2.  Above all things, O Lord, my God,
    You glorified Your name and Word;
    I called and then You answered me 
    And gave me increased strength, O Lord.

3.  All kings on earth who hear Your words,
    O Lord, will give You thanks and praise
    And tell how great Your glory is,
    And they will sing of all Your ways.

4.  The Lord is high, yet scorns the proud,
    Protects the lowly on their path;
    Although I walk in trouble, Lord,
    You keep me safe from my foe's wrath.

5.  Lord, Your right hand shall save my life
    And make Your purpose for me sure;
    Do not forsake what You have made;
    Your love forever will endure.
