I. Psalm 89:1
I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
II. Psalm 40:1-3
I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet on a rock, and established my goings.
And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.
III. Psalm 150: 1-2, 6
Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in the firmament of his power.
Praise Him for his mighty acts; praise Him according to his excellent greatness.
Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.
