Because of His love
His mercy
His grace
His forgiveness

Repeat the sounding joy
He is the Alpha
Omega
Jehovah-Jireh
Rock of our Salvation

Repeat the sounding joy
He is our comforter
Our strength
Our sword
Our shield

Repeat the sounding joy
He created the heavens
The moon
The stars
The galaxies

Repeat the sounding joy
He sent His Son
To live
To die
To rise again

Repeat the sounding joy
In Him we have peace
Joy
Eternal life
Salvation

Repeat the sounding joy
He will never break His promises
Let go of us
Leave us
Forsake us

Repeat the sounding joy
He is omniscient
Omnipotent
Omnipresent
Always

Repeat the sounding joy
He knit you
Holds you
Helps you
Knows you

Repeat the sounding joy
The earth is His and all it contains
Mountains
Valleys
Oceans

Repeat the sounding joy
Praise Him
Magnify Him
Bless Him
Honor Him

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Repeat the sounding joy

This is so similar to an idea that I had, but could not develop it, Well done! :)

I love what you do with inspiration, when it hits you. :) What a beautiful poem, so reminiscent of the psalms. I think Isaac Watts would be honored, too. Super work!

Delightful to read, and a springboard to worshiping our Creator.

I really liked your poem... especially this stanza:

Repeat the sounding joy
He knit you
Holds you
Helps you
Knows you

Thanks for writing.

Inspired and beautiful. How could it be any other?

The infectious joy in this poem drew me into praise as well! :)

You did a great job enumerating the various reasons we have for worshiping God with everything in us!

I thoroughly enJOYed this piece! :)

As soon as you wrote in the "throw a brick section" that it wasn't the season anymore but you couldn't get the line out of your head I knew what this was going to be, only I thought it was going to be in story form. We switched forms with each other sort of! (Great Minds...) This is beautiful Allison, I loved it! It just flowed from beginning to end. I think it could be a song in its own right. It was lovely from beginning to end and gave praise to our King on high! Thank you for writing this wonderful piece.
