Psalm 95 (CSB)
1 Come, let’s shout joyfully to the LORD, shout triumphantly to the rock of our salvation!
2 Let’s enter his presence with thanksgiving; let’s shout triumphantly to him in song.
3 For the LORD is a great God, a great King above all gods.
4 The depths of the earth are in his hand, and the mountain peaks are his.
5 The sea is his; he made it. His hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let’s worship and bow down; let’s kneel before the LORD our Maker.
7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, the sheep under his care. Today, if you hear his voice:
8 Do not harden your hearts as at Meribah, as on that day at Massah in the wilderness
9 where your ancestors tested me; they tried me, though they had seen what I did.
10 For forty years I was disgusted with that generation; I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray; they do not know my ways.”
11 So I swore in my anger, “They will not enter my rest.”
So what then can I say? So what then can I do? All I can do is simply thank you. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for giving me strength. Thank you my Father God. Thank you my Christ Jesus. Thank you my Holy Spirit. You judged me faithful. You appointed to Your service. Despite my dishonoring and blaspheming, Your holy name, despite my persecution and hatred those who love you, despite my perverted and violent opposition towards you, Still I only received mercy because I was lost I was lame I was deaf I was blind I was stupid I was ignorant I was evil I was dead and I was not looking and could not look for you whatsoever. But Your beautiful, sweet and tender love, mercy and grace overflowed for me overwhelmingly undeservedly ill-deservingly with your unbroken faithfulness and your relentless love that can only be by You, for You, through You, my Christ Jesus my Lord my Savior. These words out of my heart are true and with all of my hope and dreams and desires and wishes that these words would be sweet to your ears. I know that you came in this world to rescue your people to pull them out of despair to give your people life to save them from their sins to bring them to you evil sinners at war with you All of us And I lead this group. I am the foremost I am their chief I am their victor I am their champion of those who would face Your terrifying wrath! Yet, in this reason that Your grace abounds all the more that Your mercy renews every morning that Your love never ceases that You my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ might display Your perfection, beauty, tenderness, quickness, Your love, mercy, grace, patience for all of those who You call Yours and those would believe upon Your holy name for life forever. This is why I will sing to the God of the everlasting to the everlasting the Triune the Father the Son the Holy Spirit the immortal the invisible the Only One the Creator the Sustainer the Merciful the Peace the Grace the Faith the Messiah the Immanuel, God with Us the Blessed the Living Word the Christ the Son of God the Fellow Heir the Second Adam the Kinsman Redeemer the Beginning the Means the End the Majesty the Truth the Way the Life the Wisdom the Teacher the Rescuer the Promise the Calling the Fulfillment the Abundance the Host the Governor the High Priest the Prophet the Apostle the Sufferer the Messiah the Servant the Son of Man the Glorified the Power the Gospel the Guide the Elector the All-Sufficient the Lion of Judah the Worthy Lamb who was slain the King of all kings the Lord of all lords the Commander the Ruler above all the Name above all Names the Wonderful Counselor the Mighty God the Everlasting Father the Prince of Peace my Holiness my Righteousness my Justice my Faithfulness my Mercy my Grace my Friend my Confidence my Pastor my Elder my Brother my Assurance my Redeemer my Rock my Salvation my All in all my Exalted my Glorious my Beloved my Joy my Song my Love my Jesus Christ, King, Lord, Savior and Messiah my Father, my Father, my Abba, my heart my Holy Spirit, my comfort, my peace, my gift, my breath. So I will be so very careful to worship, sing, praise, glorify, exalt, proclaim, honor, dedicate, and love You alone. I pray this desperately and joyfully, in the beautiful, sweet, precious, most tender, loveliest, most worthy, dearest name of Your Son. His name is the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
