Shout for joy to the Lord, all the Earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Psalm 100


Seek in pure dedication
Desiring to know the word of God
Yearning for Him above all things

Surrender in pure adulation
Giving yourself completely to the Lord
Yielding utterly to the King of Kings

Repent in pure veneration
Laying your sins at the foot of the Cross
Receiving grace that freely flows

Worship in pure adoration
Singing unto the Lord of Hosts
Conveying joyful shouts unto God Almighty

Rejoice in pure exaltation
Entering his courts with praise
Entering his gates with thanksgiving

Exalt in pure appreciation
Lift His name above all others
Glorify the Lord with dancing and singing

Bless in pure recognition
Knowing He is the One True God
Honoring with heart, soul, strength, and mind

Praise in pure affection
Cherishing the Lord for all He has done
Bringing love and grace to all mankind


Jesus replied,
“Go back and report to John what you hear and see:
the blind receive sight,
the lame walk,
those who have leprosy are cleansed,
the deaf hear,
the dead are raised,
and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.
Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.”
Matthew 11:4-6

Blessed beyond compare
Trials may come
Waves of doubt fill my mind
Yet God is consistent

Blessed every day
I have breath and life
Chances to grow and learn
God is ever so faithful

Blessed above measure
The world may rise against me
Suffering will come
Yet God remains my rock and my fortress

Blessed indeed
Finances may falter
Bills may pile up around me
God still provides for all my need

Blessed in every way
Filled with hope despite the circumstances
Renewed when life gets me down
God is my blessing indeed
