At all times and for everything
giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
to God the Father.
Ephesians 5: 20
O give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good;
for his mercy and loving-kindness
Psalm 118: 1
On your feet now—applaud God!
Bring a gift of laughter,
sing yourselves into his presence.
Know this: God is God, and God, God.
He made us; we didn’t make him.
We’re his people, his well-tended sheep.
Enter with the password: “Thank you!”
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
Thank him. Worship him.
For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.
Psalm 100 (The Message)
