Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
juicy, ruby berries
vibrant emerald leaves
each bird song a melody of praise
painted paper butterfly wings
strong long octopus arms
decomposing logs supporting mushrooms
come, adore the Lord with me!
moisture licking air, hydrating plants, returning to clouds
the symphony of ecosystems
the mystery of stars
the beauty of each being proclaiming His majesty.
