Adoration O Lord, You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thoughts from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down And are acquainted with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, You know it completely. You have...

Adoration God is jealous and the Lord avenges; The Lord takes vengeance and is filled with wrath. The Lord takes vengeance on His adversaries, And He reserves wrath against His enemies.

Adoration Lord, You have been our dwelling place throughout all gener- ations.

Adoration Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowl- edge of God! How unsearchable are Your judgments, and Your ways past finding out! For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been Your counselor? Or who has first given to You, That You should repay...

Adoration The Lord my God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing. (Deuteronomy 10:17-18) My soul magnifies the Lord And...

  “The Lord loves such pleadings  because there is a measure of faith in them. When the person in trouble cries, ‘Lord, deliver me’ he is looking away from himself. You see, he is driven out of himself because of the despair in his life. He cannot find hope or help...

  Adoration How great are Your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep.

But You, O Lord, are exalted forever. (Psalm 92:5-8) You are the Lord, that is...
