Scripture: Psalm 147
Theme: Psalms

1.  Now praise the Lord, all living saints,
    Sing praises that endure.
    Our children God does surely bless,
    Our future is secure.

2.  God brings us peace in midst of strife,
    Our borders to protect.
    All those who trust the Lord for strength
    Need never fear neglect.

3.  God's Word runs swiftly o'er the earth,
    The seasons to command.
    Spring, summer, winter, autumn, all
    Display that wondrous hand.

4.  Your life-filled Word brings order to
    The chaos of our days.
    In love You claim us as Your own;
    What better cause for praise?

5.  Instruction, guidance, holy law,
    Some common names are these
    For God's own rule for living life.
    what other word can please?

6.  No other people are so graced,
    No nation is so blest,
    As those who know God's living Word
    And this one name confess.
