Sunday's Song

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,
the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him,
for He is your health and salvation!
Let all who hear
Now to His temple draw near,
Joining in glad adoration!

Praise to the Lord, who over all
Things is wondrously reigning
And, as on wings of an eagle,
uplifting, sustaining.
Have you not seen
All that is needful has been
Sent by His gracious ordaining?

Praise to the Lord, who will
Prosper your work and defend you;
Surely His goodness and mercy
Shall daily attend you.
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do
As with his love he befriends you.

Praise to the Lord! Oh, let all
That is in me adore him!
All that has life and breath,
Come now with praises before him!
Let the amen
Sound from his people again.
Gladly forever adore him!

--Joachim Neander, 1665

Hello Leza,

I am so glad that you found my blog and that you were encouraged by what I have written. I like the header that you chose for your blog. I have those same Lantana growing in my gardens. They attract so many beautiful butterfiles. It's amazing to watch.

Have a blessed day

Thanks so much, Hadias! :-)

Right now, we have whites, sulphurs (little yellow butterflies), and some migrating Monarchs nectaring on our butterfly bush that survived the winter. I'm going to try to bring a lantana or two inside for the winter. They re so lovely, and the butterflies we raise I'm sure will appreciate them! :-)

I'll be visiting your blog, soon! God bless! :-)
