Acrostic Praise

Psalm 34 is an acrostic poem using the Hebrew Alphabet and an individual song of thanksgiving to God.

In teaching Bible study this week, I wondered aloud, "What acrostic poem of thanksgiving would you write?" So here is one try using my own name:


C - Come celebrate God with me!
H - Hear what God has done.
R - Rejoice in God's deliverance, for God has come to save!
I - I have seen the goodness of God; I have felt delight in the presence of the Divine.
S - Savor with me the goodness of God. Taste and see how good God is.

D - Did not our God promise to be with us always?
E - Everyday I lift up my voice in praise, in times of joy and in sadness, I raise my voice to you, God.
N - Never are you far from me; indeed, you are closer than my next breath or heart beat.
N - Now and always, I will praise you. I will speak of your good deeds in the congregation of the faithful.
Y - Yes, I will proclaim your love together with all generations! Alleluia! Amen.
