You, O LORD, are glorious, from everlasting to everlasting. You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. You are the only Rock, the only Way; You are Life and Truth. You are Holy, and You are King of kings and Lord of lords. YOU, O God, are my Shield and my Buckler. No one compares to You. I put my hope and trust in You alone, and there is no other foundation except the foundation You have laid. Thank You for being my Salvation, my Portion forever. To You, Abba, I offer the sacrifice of praise, giving You thanks because You are worthy of all glory, of all honor, and all praise.
PSALM 138 – A Psalm of David
I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart;
before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word.
On the day I called, you answered me;
my strength of soul you increased.
All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord,
for they have heard the words of your mouth,
and they shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
for great is the glory of the Lord.
For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly,
but the haughty he knows from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life;
you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and your right hand delivers me.
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands.
