Praise, My Soul,
The King Of Heaven

1. Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
To His feet thy tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Who like me His praise should sing?
Praise Him, praise Him,
praise Him, praise Him,
Praise the everlasting King.

2. Praise Him for His grace and favor
To our fathers in distress.
Praise Him still the same forever,
Slow to chide, and swift to bless.
Praise Him, praise Him,
praise Him, praise Him,
Glorious in His faithfulness.

3. Frail as summer’s flower we flourish
Blows the wind and it is gone
But while mortals rise and perish
God endures unchanging on
Praise Him, praise Him,
praise Him, praise Him,
Praise the high eternal One

4. Fatherlike He tends and spares us;
Well our feeble frame He Knows.
In His hands He gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.
Praise Him, praise Him,
praise Him, praise Him,
Widely as His mercy goes.

5. Angels help us to adore Him;
Ye behold Him face to face;
Sun and moon, bow down before Him,
Dwellers all in time and space.
Praise Him, praise Him,
praise Him, praise Him,
Praise with us the God of grace.

This is probably one of my favorite hymns. If you click on the blue link at the top, you can hear a small snippet of the version recorded by Indelible Grace, which is the version that we tend to sing at our church. While there are parts of each verse that I really love, it is verse four that really sings to my heart. It’s a part that makes me close my eyes and truly sing my heart out to God and God alone.

Do you have a song like that? One that even takes the most reserved part of you and shakes it free? This is that song for me. I can sing it and honestly lose track of where I am. I am probably singing too loudly and off key, but this is one of those songs that I really just don’t care. It is a song that brings me into true worship.

This is where the Lord is meeting me this week. We sang this song at church on Sunday and I was alone with my children (which can honestly often be a challenge..especially with my clumsy daughter who wants to climb and dance all over the pews in her stocking feet!), but this song started and honestly, I closed my eyes and just worshiped. Me and my God. It was glorious. So, as this busy week is upon us and the “to-do” list is running crazy long, I play this song and the Lord brings me back into my center.
