One Sunday morning last year, I set everyone a challenge that we would write a Psalm during the service! People were asked to write a line, whether it was a favourite or important verse or something new. The papers were then collected and typed up to be shown on the screens. It was quite emotional to read it out loud together at the end of the service, to see 'where we were at' that morning.
So here it is. Hope you enjoy it!
The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
May Your unfailing love come to me Lord, Your salvation, according to Your promise;
Then I can answer anyone who taunts me, for I trust in YOU Lord.
Lord. Where are You? for you have not responded to my text!
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death;
I shall fear no evil, for You are with me, Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
The LORD is MY shepherd.
Lord YOU are amazing.
I WILL say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wing you will find refuge.
Rest and praise HIS HOLY Name, sing HIS praises.
When you are alone, Trust in the Lord and the path will appear.
When I didn’t know, You were there, You found me and helped me love you again;
You’re amazing Lord.
You lifted me out of the pit and set my feet upon the rock.
Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord.
Give praise to the LORD, proclaim HIS NAME;
make known among the nations what He has done.
You know me, in the depths of my being.
Always my strength.
Shout for joy to the LORD all the earth; Worship the Lord with gladness,
come before Him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD IS GOD; it is HE who made us and we are HIS people,
the sheep of HIS pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise;
give thanks to Him and praise HIS name.
For the Lord is GOOD and his love endures forever;
His faithfulness continues through ALL generations.
Lord FILL MY HEART, with the desire to do your will and the ability to carry it out.
In times of darkness you are my lighthouse; you keep me from disaster and rescue me.
Your love LORD shines brightly, warming our hearts; setting us ablaze with your spirit.
We will sing your praises forever.
LORD GOD you are my ALL, without you we have nothing.
Praise the LORD for the sunshine.
Thank you for healing me of alcohol and drug addiction, forgiving my sins.
Lord YOU are the healer, from the beginning to the end.
The LORD is with us even in the midst of our troubles.
Uplifting, comforting, praise, hope, thoughtful.
Give praise to the LORD your GOD, sing praise to HIS Holy Name.
Praise the Lord O my soul, God is good and worthy to be praised.
Give thanks for the continual beauty of creation.
Heavenly Father, YOU are the artist who puts the colour in the sunrise.
In all thy ways acknowledge HIM and he shall direct thy paths.
Praise the LORD, Jesus Loves me, it’s a wonderful day.
Thank you Lord, for YOUR faithfulness throughout our lives.
Listen Oh St Ives, God knows you and loves you. HE is waiting for YOU.
Our most awesome technology, is but simplicity in your sight.
HE, the LORD, is my comforter, He is my rock,
He is my Saviour and Lord. Thank you Lord.
What a friend we have in Jesus.
Help me to stop worrying Lord, let me put my trust in you. Show me the way.
The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.
For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
Lord let there be everlasting light.
