May God bless the one who comes in the name of the LORD! From the Temple of the LORD we bless you. The LORD is God; he has been good to us. With branches in your hands, start the festival and march around the altar.
(Psalm 118 verses 26,27)
We all love festivals and processions. Even very young children love to march along singing and banging drums in a festive procession to simply celebrate the joy of living.
God is so good to us that we have good reasons to celebrate. Our lives can be a festival of thanks to the Lord 'because he is good, and his love is eternal'.
There are many songs and poems of praise to God. Let's pray one of them.
