Psalm 136

Standard

At my church a couple months ago, we had a worship night. It was led by by friend Jamie, and she basically had our church family come up with our own Psalm 136 about what God has done at the Aroma. Later on, during a Sunday sermon, Pastor Chris encouraged people to write their own Psalm 136, remembering the things God has done in their lives. I took him up on this challenge and did it. And for a little more context if you’re not super familiar with Psalm 136, you can read the original here. The unique part about this Psalm is the refrain that is repeated every other line: His love endures forever. The Psalm is all about what God did for his people, the Israelites.

Everyone has a Psalm 136 to write, because his love endures forever in all of our lives. This is mine.

 

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.

His love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of god.

His love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord of lords:

His love endures forever.

to him who alone does great wonders,

His love endures forever.

who by his understanding made the heavens,

His love endures forever.

who spread out the earth upon the waters,

His love endures forever.

who made the great lights –

His love endures forever.

the sun to govern the day,

His love endures forever.

the moon and stars to govern the night;

His love endures forever.

END PART ONE.

to HIM who conquered the darkness of the womb

His love endures forever.

His love endures forever.

with the Breath of Life that he breathed into Adam;

His love endures forever.

and made everything new,

His love endures forever.

transforming the way I look at life;

His love endures forever.

END PART TWO.

His love endures forever.

and freed me from internal demons,

His love endures forever.

His love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of heaven.
