Praise Looks Good on You

This year, I'm sharing my "Treasures" of my study of my "Ponder the Morsels" book. I've picked 31 Psalms to study throughout 2013. Today I studied Psalm 33. Here is what I learned.

Sing, ye righteous, in Jehovah, For upright ones praise [is] comely. Psalm 33:1 (YLT)

·Sing [Shout for joy] to the Lord, you ·who do what is right [righteous ones]; ·honest people should praise him [praise is fitting from the upright/virtuous]. Psalm 33:1 (EXB)

Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous." Exult, ye righteous, in Jehovah! The Hebrew verb originally means to dance for joy, and is therefore a very strong expression for the liveliest exultation. J. A. Alexander. 

"Rejoice in the Lord." Joy is the soul of praise. To delight ourselves in God is most truly to extol him, even if we let no notes of song proceed from our lips. That God is, and that he is such a God, and our God, ours for ever and ever, should wake within us an unceasing and overflowing joy. The Treasury of David

What does God think of a true expression for the liveliest exultation. He likes it! Praise looks good on those who love God! 

Praise Looks Good on You 
Don Moen

When you lift Your hands up high 
And you sing a song of praise to Me
It brings Me great delight 
Such a lovely sight 
And yes it is true 
Praise looks good on you
Morning night and noon 
Your praise ascends to heaven 
Like the smell sweet perfume
Filling every room
And yes it is true
Praise looks good on you

You bring your sacrifices
And you offer up your praise
You lift your voice with singing
But your heart seems far away
More than a sacrifice
I am looking for your life
Holy and acceptable
And pleasing in my sight

Verse 2:
So offer up your lives
Holy and acceptable
A willing sacrifice
Precious in my sight
But in all that you do
Remember all I want is you

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3:
So lift your hands up high
And worship Him before the altar 
Consecrate your life
A willing sacrifice
But in all that you do
Remember all He wants is you
And yes it is true
Praise looks good on you

To create a positive day, I need to show God a true expression of the liveliest exultation—for God is worthy of praise, and it looks good on me!
