Joy and thanksgiving for the blessings of my Lord God!


Joyful, joyful, songs of laughter,

Shouts of joy to raise,

From the blessings of my harvest,

To uplift a song of praise,

 

Joyful, joyful, days of plenty,

Victorious wherever I may trod,

Blessed in abundance with every good thing,

By the abundant and rich kindness of my God!

 

Joyful, joyful, songs of laughter,

Shouts of joy to raise,

From the blessings of my harvest,

I shout with victory, and praise!


 

*

 


In the end, to do me good.

 

Oh Lord, heavenly Father, gracious King of kings,

When I was down in the gutters of life,

In want and need of every manner of thing,

Persecuted for your name’s sake,

And suffering for the cross,

You taught me patience through suffering,

And your steadfast love through the affliction I had to bear,

To discipline and to humble me,

So that in the end, you may do me good.

For your mercies are new every morning,

And you grant me strength for each passing day,

Therefore, I shout with victorious and triumphant praise,

To the Lord who is where I place my boasts,

I praise the Lord for He is good,

The Lord of the heavenly hosts!

 

 

 

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,   

his mercies never come to an end;    

they are new every morning;   

great is thy faithfulness.”                 (Lamentations 3:22-23)



 

                                                    *

 

 

Blessed be the Lord who brings His children into their inheritance. 

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord when all things are good in life,

When I have been satisfied with every manner of good thing,

From the loving kindness of my Heavenly Father!

Blessed be the name of the Lord when all things seem to go wrong,

For the Lord is my shield in the midst of the storm,

That I may praise and shout the glory of the Lord of song!

Blessed be the name of the Lord throughout the passing days,

For the Lord is God, and there is no other,

And He shall make straight my ways!

 

Praise the triumphant Conqueror who bore my shame and loss,

Praise the triumphant Conqueror by His victory on the cross!

Praise the King of kings who keeps me on His perfect route,

Praise the Lord of lords with triumphant praise, and SHOUT!

 

 

 

“I am the Lord, and there is no other;

There is no God besides Me.”       (from Isaiah 45:5)

 

                                           

                                         * 

 

 

Jehovah-Shalom, the Lord is peace.

 

Through the howling of the winds,

And the storms upon this life,

The Lord is my peace,

He stills the fretting of the anxious heart.

Though calamity and trials may come,

In this I will be confident,

Though wars may break out and an army is upon me,

Let this be my hope:

For the Lord sent His son to be with us,

He fills the weary heart with peace, oh Emmanuel!

The spirit finds rest in the Lord of the Sabbath!

Righteousness and peace meet together,

Jehovah-Shalom makes a pathway through the storm!

Praise the triumphant Conqueror of the devil, death, the grave, and hell,

Praise the victorious Prince of peace, my King, Emmanuel!

 

 

May Lord Jesus Christ have all the glory!
