The Living Word
Psalm 138: 1-3

The Message

1-3:  Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!”     
Angels listen as I sing my thanks.
I kneel in worship facing your holy temple
and say it again: “Thank you!”
Thank you for your love, thank you for your faithfulness;
Most holy is your name, most holy is your Word.
The moment I called out, you stepped in;
you made my life large with strength.
