Psalm 115 ~ All My Glory is in Yahweh

For many years now, my favorite verse, the one I come back to again and again, has been Isaiah 50:4. “The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of disciples, that I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word. He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to listen as a disciple.” That has been my desire with this project of psalm confessions and, indeed, with all my writing ~ to sustain the weary one with a word.

All My Glory is in Yahweh ~ from Psalm 115

To Yahweh alone
Goes all the glory;
I will praise Him
For every good thing in me,
Because of His covenant love
And faithfulness.

I put my confidence in Yahweh;
He is my Helper, my Defender.
He remembers me,
To bless me.
Yahweh blesses all who honor Him,
Who live in awe of Him,
From the greatest to the least ~
And there are no “least” with Him.

Yahweh gives us increase,
Adds more and more to our blessings,
To us and our children.
We are blessed by Yahweh,
Maker of Heaven and Earth.

Heaven belongs to Yahweh,
And He has given the earth
As an inheritance
To all who are His.
His kingdom comes
As His will is done
On earth as in heaven.*

We will not be silent
But will praise and adore Yahweh
Now and forever.

* Adapted from the prayer Jesus taught us to pray (Matthew 6:10).
