I love You, Lord, my strength,
my rock, my fortress, my saviour.
My God is the rock where I take refuge;
my shield, my mighty help, my stronghold.
– Psalm 17:2 (The Grail Psalms)
When you truly love God, and you stop to reflect on His magnificence, your soul reaches out to Him with intense yearning, and your heart leaps and is unable to contain its joy, and from deep inside come words of praise and honour, giving glory to the Maker.
A true believer is a praying person, and knows that God is a prayer-hearing God. A true believer wholeheartedly heaps praise on the Almighty, and glories and finds joy and comfort in the safety of His loving presence.
I love You, O Lord, my Strength,
my Rock, my Fortress, my Saviour.
My God, You are the Rock where I take refuge;
my Shield, my Mighty Help, my Stronghold.
I love You, Lord, because You first loved me.
Teach me, Lord, how to remain in Your love.
