We praise you in your sanctuary. We praise you in your mighty heavens. We praise you for your mighty deeds. We praise you according to your excellent greatness.
Why is it that we praise you with our lips, but our hearts are far away? Why is it that we settle for counterfeit heavens? Why is it that we turn to other gods so quickly and so often?
Forgive us for worshipping you in vain. Forgive us for seeking to please men rather than You. Forgive us for our wandering and adulterous hearts.
Thanks be to You that nothing can separate us from Your love in Christ Jesus. Your name is exalted among the nations, all over the earth and high above the heavens. We praise You and we worship You in the most precious name of Jesus. Amen.
