Keep Calm and Read Psalms: Praising God, my Exceeding Joy
Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God. (Psalm 43:5)
Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy; And on the harp I will praise You, O God, my God. (Psalm 43:4 NKJV)
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones;
shout for joy, all you upright in heart. (Psalm 32:11)
Happy are the people who know the joyful shout;
Lord, they walk in the light of Your presence. (Psalm 89:15)
O Lord, You exceed--You are greater than--
my petty worries and the scary stories on the news tonight.
I praise You! I will serve You with a glad heart.
