Our Psalm of Praise Chapel

These are the verses of our psalm that the groups wrote together to praise our awesome God!

***God is protection like a fortress and a shield.

***God is powerful like an erupting volcano.  God is as strong as the raging sea.
***God is unstoppable like little waves.
***God is as strong as a thunderbolt.  He lights up the sky like lightning!  He strikes the ground with power.  God is more majestic than an eagle.
***The Lord is as mighty as a lion and as strong as a bear.
***God is our GPS.  He guides us to our destination.
***The all-knowing God is like Siri.
***God is an ocean of kindness and a wave of love to us.
“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised.  His greatness is unsearchable.” (Psalm 145:3)

Our Psalm of Praise

For our chapel, we responded to God’s great gift of His Son by creating our own similes and metaphors of praise. Each 3rd/4th grader helped lead a group of mixed ages in writing one verse of our own psalm of praise, which we then combined into a giant psalm by the whole elementary school!

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.” (Psalm 145:3)

“You have multiplied, O Lord my God,

Your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;

None can compare with you!

I will proclaim and tell of them,

Yet they are more than can be told.” (Psalm 40:5)


Chapel Moment

This choral version of the Lord’s Prayer in Swahili moved me to tears.  Mrs. Holleran shared it as part of our worship in chapel this week, and we thought you might like to see it too.  It’s a new favorite for me, as I imagine all the tongues and tribes and nations worshipping the One True God around the throne.

Revelation 7:9-12

“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,  and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’  And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,  saying, ‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.’”
