David's Songs of Praise

David's Prayer of Praise

Praise be to You, LORD,
the God of our father [teacher] Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.
Yours, LORD, is the greatness
and the power and the glory
and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is Yours.
Yours, LORD, is the kingdom;
You are exalted as head over all.
Wealth and honor come from You;
You are the ruler of all things.
In Your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.
Now, our God, we give You thanks,
and praise Your glorious Name.
(1Chronicles 29:10-13)

David's Psalm 138

I will praise You, LORD, with all my heart;
before the gods I will sing Your praise.
I will bow down toward Your Holy Temple
and will praise Your Name,
for Your love and Your faithfulness,
for You have exalted above all things
Your Name and Your Word.
When I called, You answered me;
You made me bold and stout-hearted.
May all the kings of the earth praise you O LORD,
When they hear the words of Your mouth.
May they sing of the ways of the LORD,
for the glory of the LORD is great.
Though the LORD is on high
He looks upon the lowly
but the proud He sees from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
You preserve my life.
You stretch out Your hand
against the anger of my foes;
with Your right hand you save me.
The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me;
Your love, O LORD, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of Your Hands.
(Psalm 138 NIV 1984)
