Psalm 104:24-34, 35b (3:44)

by Jason Silver (played 7 times)

 

My daughter Rosie has a hamster named Angela Vanilla Peach. She's the cutest little thing, often busy carrying her bedding from place to place, running through the little maze we've connected to her cage, through the tunnels and pipes which join the different parts together. It's fun watching her go about her day, with a purpose beyond my understanding.

It's a microcosm of this whole world, a tiny example of what's happening over every square inch of this earth. Life is everywhere, and every lifeform has a purpose to live, to store up for winter, to procreate, to eat, and maybe even other things that I could never guess.

Isn't it amazing? All of this life is glorifying God by its complexity, it's pleasure in the mundane, it's mere existence!

I worship with the Psalmist: this is a beautiful world we live in! Bless the Lord, O my soul! Praise the Lord!

I'd love to hear how you worship our God through your "mere existence."

Lyrics

O Lord, how many are your works!
In wisdom you have made them all;
The earth is full of creatures.
And the yonder sea is great and wide,

Creeping things innumerable are there,
Living things both great and small.
There go the ships, and Leviathan you formed
These all look to you to give them food;

When you give to them,
They gather it up;
When you open your hand,
They are filled with your love.
When you hide your face,
They are dismayed;
When you take their breath,
They return to the dust.
When you send forth your spirit,
They are created;
And you renew the face of the ground.

May the glory of the Lord
Endure forever; evermore.
May God rejoice in all his works—
He looks on earth, it trembles so.
He touches the mountains and they smoke.
I will sing to God always;
I will sing praise to my God while I have life.
May my meditation please the Lord.

When you give to them,
They gather it up;
When you open your hand,
They are filled with your love.
When you hide your face,
They are dismayed;
When you take their breath,
They return to the dust.
When you send forth your spirit,
They are created;
And you renew the face of the ground.

Bless the Lord, O my soul.

Bless the Lord, O my soul.
Praise the Lord!
Bless the Lord, O my soul.

Bless the Lord, O my soul.
Praise the Lord!
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
