MY SWEET SONG, MY SWEET MELODY
Written By Linda A. Knowles
My Sweet Song,
My Sweet Melody,
My God to whom I sing.
You are my song-
Through every day,
Through every night.
You are the sweetest song I know,
My Sweet Melody;
And I will glory in who You are,
And sing praises to Your name.
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.
O You are the God in whom I trust,
You’re the God in whom I trust,
And You are the Solid Rock,
Upon which I stand;
I’m hidden in the Cleft,
Your Child I am.
You prepare a table for me,
In the presence of my enemies,
And they will not triumph over me.
I’m determined to do Your will,.
And drink deeply from the Well.
I shall trust in You, My Lord and My God,
As I walk this narrow road
The path of victory-
You have placed me on.
I will trust and obey,
Following Your ways,
Determined to do Your Will,
For it does not matter what man may say.
I will proclaim,
“You are my God my Rock,”
For I am safe in You,
And You shelter me.

O Magnify the Lord with me-
Praise to Him, the King of kings!
And I shall lift my voice to sing of His everlasting goodness,
The goodness of The Mighty Sovereign King!
You reign supreme,
For You are the God Most High,
And none compares to You, My God,
The Holy, Righteous One.
You are the Horn of My Salvation,
Exalted far above all the earth,
And You are strong and glorious,
Mighty to save,
Giver of Life,
And You are One!
“Acknowledge that the Lord is good! He made us, and we are His. We are His people, the sheep of His pasture.”
As children of God, we’re to acknowledge God in all we do. When we praise Him and speak of His goodness and His glory, we’re focusing on and acknowledging the One Who Created us and the One Who has ordered our steps. When we obey God, we acknowledge He is Lord over all, seeking only His approval, not man’s approval. When we worship and bow before Him, we’re acknowledging Him as King. No one compares to Him, and there is no other God but Him. When we daily submit and present ourselves as a living sacrifice to God, we’re acknowledging His sovereignty in our lives.
Let’s remember to keep our focus on Him, recognizing He is God and in control. He is the Rock, and He is bigger than any problem or circumstance. Never forget His goodness, and always count the blessings He has given you.
Be blessed, and have a great day, Everyone!
