Singing Praise

Psalm 8
O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
above the heavens.
From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise
because of your enemies
to silence the foe and avenger.

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?
You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.

You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:
all the flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!


This Psalm was on my mind today as I drove down to Tillamook with all my kiddos. I didn't have the radio on at all and it was a very peaceful ride for Hannah spent the entire trip singing. She makes up her own songs and it's times like this that I wish I could just pause time and listen to her for awhile. I hope you are blessed by her words as much as I was/am.
..."From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise"...

"Do you want to play a song for God?
See all the trees
Do you see all the trees?
God made the trees
They're so wonderful.
Do you want to sing a song for God?
See that hill
Do you see that hill?
God made that hill.
It's big.
But God is bigger.
He's bigger than everything he made.
Do you want to sing a song for God?
He made the grass that I see.
He made the cows and the sheep.
He made people and he helps them make the road we're driving on.
Do you want to play a song for God?
He is wonderful and everything he makes is wonderful.
He made the ocean.
He holds it all in his hand.
He's wonderful.
Do you want to sing a song for God?
He helps the workers build.
He made the flowers.
He made the butterflies,
do you see the butterflies?
He made the sky.
He made the stars.
They are wonderful.
Everything he makes is wonderful.
Do you want to play a song for God?
Please help me see what you want me to see God.
Please let me see what you want me to see.
'Cause I can see.
It is wonderful.
Help me know what you want me to know.
You are wonderful.
Do you want to sing a song for God?
Do you want to play a song for God?
He is wonderful.
He is amazing.
He loves me.
I'm singing a song for God."

That's great! My kids all love to make up songs about/for God too..... I LOVE it! I would much rather listen to them than the radio too, unless they are all singing different songs at the same time! LOL!

*I* got blessed. I think I almost remember doing this sort of thing myself. Maybe a little older. What an utter joy. Imagine how the Lord feels!
