Psalms 47:6-7 
Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, 
sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: 
sing ye praises with understanding.

How often are we singing praises to God?  Four times in these two verses it tells us to sing praises to God.   God thought it was important.  

We are to sing praise with understanding.  Understand who God is! He is the King of the universe, all powerful! 

Understand who and what you are singing about lest you use God's name lightly and take His name in vain!


 Praise Him, Praise Him

Words: Fan­ny Cros­by,
Music: Ches­ter G. Al­len 

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessèd Redeemer!
Sing, O Earth, His wonderful love proclaim!
Hail Him! hail Him! highest archangels in glory;
Strength and honor give to His holy Name!
Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children,
In His arms He carries them all day long:

Praise Him! Praise Him!
Tell of His excellent greatness.
Praise Him! Praise Him!
Ever in joyful song!

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessèd Redeemer!
For our sins He suffered, and bled, and died.
He our Rock, our hope of eternal salvation,
Hail Him! hail Him! Jesus the Crucified.
Sound His praises! Jesus who bore our sorrows,
Love unbounded, wonderful, deep and strong.

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessèd Redeemer!
Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring!
Jesus, Savior, reigneth forever and ever.
Crown Him! Crown Him! Prophet, and Priest, and King!
Christ is coming! over the world victorious,
Pow’r and glory unto the Lord belong.
