I Will Praise You – A Psalm

I was reading Psalm 111 this morning which says, “I will praise You with my whole heart.” I was inspired to write this psalm of praise.

I Will Praise You

I will praise You with my broken heart
In Your goodness and mercy You heal me
I will praise You in the raging storm
Your mighty right hand will calm the winds

I will praise You when the flowers bloom
Their beauty a witness of Your glory
I will praise You while the sun shines bright
Pointing to You as my eternal Light

The works of Your creation testify
You alone are worthy of praise

Created in Your image we have the power
to create, but only from what You
have already made

Guide us, O Lord, to use our creative power
for good and not for evil
that the whole earth would glorify You in praise

I will praise You
Praise the Lord

  1. I love this poem. This petition really spoke to me:

    “Guide us, O Lord, to use our creative power
    for good and not for evil
    that the whole earth would glorify You in praise”

    I am an imaginative/creative person. That can be a good thing and a bad thing. When I am not yielded my imagination is ruled by vanity and fear which makes me miserable. I am praying this portion of your poem at this moment. Thank you for sharing this post.

    Love,
    Theresa
