A Lesser Doxology This


A Lesser Doxology

This was a hymn we used to sing nearly every Sunday in the Baptist Church. I've heard it variously referrred to--"Old Hundredth," "The Lesser Doxology," etc. However, it is very short and very beautiful for today.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below,
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

I guess this is just a praising kind of day. I have been so fortunate in everything God has done for me. There have been great trials, and almost every trial has enabled me to help others. There have been periods of great consolation. I am thankful for it all today. I am even thankful that God has given me a sense of thankfulness. It is very hard to be an unhappy person if you are truly thankful. I don't pause often enough to thank God for all the blessings He bestows in the course of ordinary life. Praise Him!
