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 persecution and hatred

despite my perverted and violent opposition
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
with your unbroken faithfulness
and your relentless love
that can only be by You,
my Christ Jesus my Lord my Savior.

and with all of my hope and dreams
and desires and wishes
that these words would be sweet to your ears.
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
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!
in this reason
that Your grace abounds all the more
that Your mercy renews every morning
that Your love never ceases
my Lord and Savior
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
