Yesterday, to close our annual Jubilee service at Calvary, I put together a collection of verses from the Psalms that focus on the faithfulness of God. It was appropriate because the theme of the service was GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS. I have had multiple requests for a printed version of what my granddaughter called “free-style rap.” May I suggest that you read this out loud for full effect. May God bless you immensely with His Word.
It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.
For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work;
at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
I will sing of the steadfast love of the LORD, forever;
with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.
For I said, “Steadfast love will be built up forever;
in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.”
Let the heavens praise your wonders, O LORD, your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones!
O LORD God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, O LORD, with your faithfulness all around you?
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; steadfast love and faithfulness go before you.
For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
you have established the earth, and it stands fast.
Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.
All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
For the word of the LORD is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness.
I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me.
I know, O LORD, that your rules are righteous, and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
But as for me, my prayer is to you, O LORD.
At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy;
they are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.
Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things!
His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.
The LORD has made known his salvation;
he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart;
I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation;
I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great congregation.
For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in your faithfulness.
Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!
For your steadfast love is great above the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.
Praise the LORD!
