Worship Resource: Praise the Lord, My Strength (Psalm 59)

Psalm 59_17This worship resource features selected verses from Psalm 59 and the timeless hymn Praise to the Lord, the Almighty. (United Methodist Hymnal #139, verses 1, 3, 5) Feel free to add more verses as desired. Feel free to use the traditional version of the hymn or consider Christy Nockels’ contemporary version made popular at the Passion Conference.

ALL SINGING:
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation.
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near, join me in glad adoration!

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do who with His love doth befriend thee

Instrumental music continues during the scripture reading

Psalm 59:9, 16-17 NRSV
ONE:
O my Strength, I will watch for You
For You, O God, are my fortress

ALL:
I will sing of Your might;
I will sing aloud of Your steadfast love in the morning

ONE:
For You have been a fortress for me
and a refuge in the day of my distress.

ALL:
O my Strength, I will sing praises to You
For You, O God, are my fortress
The God who shows me steadfast love

ALL SINGING:
Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him!
Let the amen sound from His people again
Gladly forever adore Him
