Today, I just want to share a poem I wrote a few years back, giving praise to God, my Father.  You might wonder, why do we need such poems, when we have the Book of Psalms with one hundred and fifty poems (or songs) of praise to God?

God delights in our praises. And He still wants to hear our voices lifted in praise, whether we are reciting psalms written ages ago or we are bringing our own poems, as a sacrifice of our lips and hearts, in thanksgiving and praise to His name.

So, enjoy this short poem with me, as I praise God with these words.

 

Praise in the Desert

I give praise to One who is worthy

The Most High, the Magnificent One

To Him my praise ascends

Out of the ashes of the past

In a dry and thirsty land

I reach out to the One who brought me through

Out of darkness to His light

Through the fire and the flood

Through the valley of the shadow of death

He brought me through it all

I cannot but praise Him

Lover of my soul

Redeemer of my past

Savior, Shepherd, Friend

Healer, Comforter, Faithful One

Who reigns in righteousness and justice

Faithful is Your Name

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God

Unsearchable are Your ways O Lord,

Awesome is Your praise

My whole being declares Your praise

I rejoice in Who You are

And in who You have made me

Praise to Your Name, Lord Most High

Praise to You forever!!!
