He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

A Rhyming Paraphrase of Psalm 67

(rough draft)

see Psalm 67

God, all glorious, Almighty, & King
Giver of life, Giver of Good, Give us Your blessing
Holy, all-knowing, all-loving, give us Your grace
In Your mercy, shine on us the light of Your face (v.1)
Not because we're worthy, not because we're due
Do it for Your fame, it's Your glory we have in view
Show Your ways to all the earth
By Your redeeming power, show the nations Your worth (v.2)
Mongol, Acehnese, Russian, & Malay
Tajik, Japanese, all peoples bow down in praise
Africa, Americas, Islands, Middle East
Worship Him, honor Him, always, without cease (v.3)
Strings, horns, voices, shout your joyous song
Your Guide is YHWH, the Judge Who does no wrong (v.4)
Villages, towns, cities, suburbs, slums
Praise Him, adore Him, exult o'er the Righteous One (v.5)
We reap in abundance, the land yields its increase
God gives & gives, we live, & yet we rest in peace (v.6)
God shall bless, so Repentant, fill your lungs with His joyous song
But those who refuse, fear Him - for He is the Judge Who does no wrong (v.7)
