My Own Psalm 136

Read Psalm 136.
What is the author thankful for? Well, among other things, God's steadfast love. This summer, in church, we went through the Psalms, and we learned that the Hebrew word for steadfast love is hesed.


hesed love
Hesed love is beautiful. It is the love that will not let you go.

Love that will not let me go

Anyhow, this post is not entirely about hesed love. For a writing assignment today, I had to write my own Psalm 136. So here it is.


Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for his salvation,

For his hesed love endures forever.

He has given me eternal life,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is faithful,

For his hesed love endures forever.

He is there when friendships fail,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is creator,

For his hesed love endures forever.

He had a plan for me before I was born,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is king,

For his hesed love endures forever.

He sets up rulers and takes them down,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is my help,

For his hesed love endures forever.

He is there in times of trouble,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Give thanks to Lord, for he has blessed me,

For his hesed love endures forever.

He has given me family and friends,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he satisfies,

For his hesed love endures forever.

I have found that he is all I need,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,

For his hesed love endures forever.

Praise God

Why don't you take a moment and write your own version of Psalm 136? What has God done for you?

Count your blessings
