Psalm 139 Sunday Praise

img_2152

O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise;

you perceive my thoughts from afar.

You discern my going out and my lying down;

you are familiar with all my ways.

Before a word is on my tongue

you know it completely, O Lord.

img_2147

You hem me in–behind and before;

you have laid your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too lofty for me to attain.

img_2155

For you created my inmost being;

you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

your works are wonderful,

I know that full well.

img_2158

All the days ordained for me

were written in your book

before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!

How vast is the sum of them!

Were I to count them,

they would outnumber the grains of sand.

When I am awake,

I am still with you.

img_2193

Search me, O God, and know my heart;

test me and know my anxious thoughts.

See if there is any offensive way in me,

and lead me in the way everlasting.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;

You are my God.

Be merciful, O Lord, for I am calling on you constantly.

Give me happiness, O Lord, for my life depends on you.

O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask your aid.

Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord; hear my urgent cry.

I will call to you whenever trouble strikes, and you will answer me.

violets

Flowering branches: Sunday praise

Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;

my body also will rest secure,

because you will not abandon me to the grave,

nor will you let your Holy One see decay.

You have made known to me the path of life;

you will fill me with joy in your presence,

with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Psalm 16:9-11 NIV

Psalm 68:4-6

Sing praises to God and to his name!

Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds.

His name is the Lord–rejoice in his presence!

Father to the fatherless, defender of widows–

this is God, whose dwelling is holy.

God places the lonely in families;

he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.

NLT
