Will You Praise The Lord Today?

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised. (Psalm 113:3)

It is a marvel of mercy that the sun should rise on the rebellious sons of men, and prepare for the undeserving fruitful seasons and days of pleasantness. Let us for this prodigy of goodness praise the Lord of all. From hour to hour let us renew the strain, for each moment brings its mercy.

Let us not cease our music, but lift up our hymn:

Father of heaven and earth!
I bless thee for the night,
The soft still night!
The holy pause of care and mirth,
Of sound and light.
Now far in glade and dell,
Flower cup, and bud, and bell
Have shut around the sleeping woodlark's nest,
The bee's long murmuring toils are done,
And I, the over wearied one,
Bless thee, O God, O Father of the oppressed!
With my last waking thought.

Verse 3. God is to be praised 
(C.H. Spurgeon)

1. All the day.
2. All the world over.
3. Publicly in the light.
4. Amidst daily duties.
5. Always - because it is always day somewhere.
