~Psalm 8:9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Is it any wonder why the Book of Psalms is such an encouraging book for the Christian? Its pages are filled with glorious descriptions of God. His character is revealed through each verse! This blessed Book prepares our hearts for the day’s challenges.

After reading verses such as these this morning, it causes me to praise my Lord and Saviour for all He has done for me! I did a phrase search in my Bible software for the words “praise him” and found that the only time these two words were found together in the King James Bible were in the Book of Psalms. There are 18 accounts of this phrase and I thought I would share them this morning so you would be able to praise HIM along with me!

Thank You, my Blessed Redeemer, for all that You did and continue to do for us! We praise Your Holy Name today and lift You above all. May our actions and words reflect this. It does not surprise me, then, to see these beautiful words penned by Fanny Crosby:

Praise Him! Praise Him!

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessèd Redeemer!
Sing, O Earth, His wonderful love proclaim!
Hail Him! hail Him! highest archangels in glory;
Strength and honor give to His holy Name!
Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children,
In His arms He carries them all day long:

Refrain

Praise Him! Praise Him!
Tell of His excellent greatness.
Praise Him! Praise Him!
Ever in joyful song!

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessèd Redeemer!
For our sins He suffered, and bled, and died.
He our Rock, our hope of eternal salvation,
Hail Him! hail Him! Jesus the Crucified.
Sound His praises! Jesus who bore our sorrows,
Love unbounded, wonderful, deep and strong.

Refrain

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessèd Redeemer!
Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring!
Jesus, Savior, reigneth forever and ever.
Crown Him! Crown Him! Prophet, and Priest, and King!
Christ is coming! over the world victorious,
Pow’r and glory unto the Lord belong.

Refrain
