I will exalt you, O my God and King;
For ever I will praise your holy name.
I will extol your name for evermore;
Day after day your praise I will proclaim.
Great is the LORD, most worthy of all praise;
His greatness none can search or comprehend.
Each generation will recount your deeds
And to the next your mighty acts commend.
They praise the splendour of your majesty,
The power of the works that you have done.
I too will meditate upon your deeds,
And your majestic acts I will make known.
They will rejoice in your benevolence,
And your abundant grace they’ll celebrate;
The righteousness that you have shown to them
In praise and joyful song they will relate.
The LORD is gracious and compassionate;
He’s slow to anger, rich in steadfast love.
The LORD is good to all that he has made,
And merciful to all on earth that move.
All you have made will give you praise,
O LORD; Your saints will all unite to bless your name.
The glory of your reign they will declare,
And your surpassing might they will proclaim.

SERMON | “The Revelation of God” | Rev Paul Gibson
PSALM 19:7-14 | Sing Psalms
The perfect law of God
Revives the soul of man;
His statutes which are sure
Make wise the simple one.
The precepts of the LORD are right
And fill the heart with great delight.
God’s radiant commands
Shed light on what we see;
The fear of God is pure
And lasts eternally.
The standards of the LORD express
His perfect truth and righteousness.
Of far more worth than gold--
Than much pure gold—they are;
Than honey from the comb,
Than honey sweeter far.
They warn the servant of the LORD;
In keeping them is great reward.
Who can discern his faults?
Forgive my hidden sin.
Keep me from wilful deeds;
May they not rule within.
And then I shall be free from blame
And guiltless of transgression’s shame.
LORD, let the words I speak
Be pleasing in your sight,
And may my inmost thoughts
Be in your judgment right.
O LORD, you are a Rock to me;
You have redeemed and set me free.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
