Tell Them The LORD Looked Down


Let this be recorded for future generations,

so that a people not yet born will praise the LORD.

Tell them the LORD looked down

from his heavenly sanctuary.

He looked down to earth from heaven

to hear the groans of the prisoners,

to release those condemned to die.

And so the LORD’s fame will be celebrated in Zion,

his praises in Jerusalem,

when multitudes gather together

and kingdoms come to worship the LORD.


He broke my strength in midlife,

cutting short my days.

But I cried to him, “O my God, who lives forever,

don’t take my life while I am so young!

Long ago you laid the foundation of the earth

and made the heavens with your hands.

They will perish, but you remain forever;

they will wear out like old clothing.

You will change them like a garment

and discard them.

But you are always the same;

you will live forever.

The children of your people

will live in security.

Their children’s children

will thrive in your presence.”

A Great Reason To Party!
