Ceaseless Celebration

"Praise ye the LORD… from this time forth and for evermore… From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the LORD'S name is to be praised… He raiseth up the poor out of the dust" (Psalm 113:1-7).  " He… keepeth thy soul…  Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place: for a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again" (Proverbs 24:12,15,16).  "We believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved" (Acts 15:11). 

The Lord is worthy of our praise
From this time forth and evermore. 
He changes not through all our days;
His love continues as before. 

There should be ceaseless celebration
As day and night we learn to trust
And praise the Lord of our salvation
Who lifts the poor out of the dust. 

Though we are still inclined to stumble,
We rise again by His command,
For He restores us when we're humble,
And we are lifted by His hand. 

What ceaseless celebration, Lord,
Belongs to all You save by grace,
For by Your love we are restored,
And You are still our Hiding Place.
