Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

We sang this in church yesterday... Pay particular attention to verse 2: Have you not seen how your desires ever have been granted in what He ordained. How often I do not see my desires granted in what God has given me.. I am not content with God's Will in my life. Will I never learn? Because really, I would rather have what God wants for me than what I want for myself!

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, By: Joachim Neander

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty The King of creation
O my soul, praise Him For He is thy health and salvation
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near
Praise Him in glad adoration

Praise to the Lord Who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth
Shelters thee under His wings Yea, so gently sustaineth
Hast thou not seen how thy desires e'er have been
Granted in what He ordaineth

Praise to the Lord Who doth prosper thy work and defend thee
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do
If with His love He befriend thee

Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him
All that hath life and breath Come now with praises before Him
Let the 'amen' sound from His people again
Gladly for'ere we adore Him
