Acrostic Adoration

The Psalm for this coming Sunday, August 16, 2009, is Psalm 111. It is an acrostic Psalm. To help worshippers hopefully better understand and appreciate the acrostic form, I have quickly written my own acrostic adoration. It is not very polished but I think it illustrates in English the acrostic form.

Acrostic Adoration

Awesome God!
Benevolent LORD!
Covenant Maker!
Dearest Creator!
Ever-loving Redeemer!
Faithful Sustainer!
Great and wonderful is our LORD.
Honor is due God’s holy name.
In the sanctuary sing our Sustainer's praise.
Joyfully praise the one who frees us.
Kneel before the one who forms us.
Lift your voices to the Holy One.
Make a joyful noise to the Holy One of Israel.
Never forget God's praises.
Open your mouths in praise of our LORD.
Praise the Maker of heaven and earth.
Quail and manna our Creator gave us in the wilderness.
Reigning over us is our Redeemer.
Sing praises to our Sustainer.
Think often about our awesome Lord.
Understand the Great I Am.
Vast and awesome is our Sustainer.
Worthy of praise is the one who frees us.
eXcellent is the one who forms us.
Yes, the Holy One is excellent and awesome.
Zealously we worship the Holy One of Israel.
