Give Thanks Unto the Lord

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. As we reflect on how richly we have been blessed by the Lord of heaven and earth, let us sing his praises and give him our thanks; recognizing he is the Giver of every good and perfect.

“Oh, give thanks to the Lord and pray to him,” they sang.
“Tell the peoples of the world
About his mighty doings. 

Sing to him; yes, sing his praises
And tell of his marvelous works.
Glory in his holy name;
Let all rejoice who seek the Lord.
 Seek the Lord; yes, seek his strength
And seek his face untiringly.

O descendants of his servant Abraham,
O chosen sons of Jacob,
Remember his mighty miracles
And his marvelous miracles
And his authority:
He is the Lord our God!
 Sing to the Lord, O Earth,
Declare each day that he is the one who saves!

Show his glory to the nations!
Tell everyone about his miracles.
 For the Lord is great and should be highly praised;
He is to be held in awe above all gods.
 The other so-called gods are demons,
But the Lord made the heavens.
 Majesty and honor march before him,
Strength and gladness walk beside him.

 O people of all nations of the earth,
Ascribe great strength and glory to his name!
 Yes, ascribe to the Lord
The glory due his name!
Bring an offering and come before him;
Worship the Lord when clothed with holiness!
 Tremble before him, all the earth!

The world stands unmoved.
 Let the heavens be glad, the earth rejoice;
Let all the nations say, ‘It is the Lord who reigns.’
 Let the vast seas roar,
Let the countryside and everything in it rejoice!
 Let the trees in the woods sing for joy before the Lord,
For he comes to judge the earth.
 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
His love and his kindness go on forever.

 Blessed be Jehovah, God of Israel,
Forever and forevermore.”

And all the people shouted “Amen!” and praised the Lord.

1 Chronicles 16 (TLB)
