I sing a new song to you, Lord. Your mercies are new each day. You fortify the temple within me through your Word. You build me up in my weakness. You lift me up when I fail you. You put my feet on your solid foundation. You point me in the way I should go. You restore me when I stray. You love me more than I can sense or describe. I praise you and raise my hands of thanksgiving. I pray in your name above all names, in your authority that surpasses all others, and according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord, ‘For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever toward Israel.’ And all the people shouted with a great shout when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.” (Ezra 3:11 ESV)
