111 Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
2 The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
3 His work is honorable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.
8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. (KJV)
Praise your name Lord! We give thanks to you with our whole hearts,
in the company of the faithful, in the congregation of believers in your Son Jesus.
Great are the works of your hand Lord, full of splendor and majesty is your work,
and your righteousness endures forever.
You are gracious and merciful; remembering your covenant and promises to the faithful forever. The works of your hands are faithful and just; your Word and all your precepts are trustworthy; they are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.
You have sent redemption to your people and the whole world in the person and gift of your Son Jesus. He gave his life to take away the sins of the world and save all believers forever in your Kingdom. Holy and awesome is his name!
In your Word it says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and all those who practice it have a good understanding. Thanks for giving all believers in your Son your Holy Spirit as counsel and guide; to empower all your servants in the task before us.
You have also said that you are giving us ‘the inheritance of the nations.’ Let your servants go forth in power to this generation; every people, nation, and tongue proclaiming the good news of your Kingdom and your Son to all those who have not heard; to all those who are captive to the false wisdom and religions of human kind. Hold back the enemy until the task is complete. Let everyone hear in this generation and let whole nations be revived while there is yet day.
In Jesus name, Amen.
