You who fear the Lord, praise him!
All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him;
stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
24 For he did not despise or abhor
the affliction of the afflicted;
he did not hide his face from me,[a]
but heard when I[b] cried to him.
25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
my vows I will pay before those who fear him.
26 The poor[c] shall eat and be satisfied;
those who seek him shall praise the Lord.
May your hearts live forever!
27 All the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord;
and all the families of the nations
shall worship before him.[d]
28 For dominion belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.
29 To him,[e] indeed, shall all who sleep in[f] the earth bow down;
before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
and I shall live for him.[g]
30 Posterity will serve him;
future generations will be told about the Lord,
31 and[h] proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn,
saying that he has done it.
If you fear the Lord
Then praise Him
He has always heard me
Always helped me
We must glorify His name
All the earth shall turn to God
All the nations shall worship Him
Everything belongs to God
Genesis 15:1-6, 12-18
God’s Covenant with Abram
15 After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, “Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.” 2 But Abram said, “O Lord God, what will you give me, for I continue childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?”[a] 3 And Abram said, “You have given me no offspring, and so a slave born in my house is to be my heir.” 4 But the word of the Lord came to him, “This man shall not be your heir; no one but your very own issue shall be your heir.” 5 He brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” 6 And he believed the Lord; and the Lord[b] reckoned it to him as righteousness.
God came to Abraham
Do not be afraid
Your reward is plentiful
You will be great
But Abraham had questions
What Lord can you give?
All I wish for us a child
An heir is all I wish
God told him to look up
To the stars in all the heavens
You will have many heirs
You will start a nation
But now, apart from law, the righteousness of God has been disclosed, and is attested by the law and the prophets, 22 the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ[a] for all who believe. For there is no distinction, 23 since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; 24 they are now justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a sacrifice of atonement[b] by his blood, effective through faith. He did this to show his righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over the sins previously committed; 26 it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies the one who has faith in Jesus.[c]
27 Then what becomes of boasting? It is excluded. By what law? By that of works? No, but by the law of faith. 28 For we hold that a person is justified by faith apart from works prescribed by the law. 29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, 30 since God is one; and he will justify the circumcised on the ground of faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. 31 Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.
Everyone falls short
Short of the glory of God
Through Grace they are lifted up
Through Grace that comes from God
He did this to show his righteosness
How much he loves us all
No one will ever be excluded
His love is love for evermore
