Won't You take this heart
If you’re much like me (human), and you ever find yourself forgetting God’s benefits and neglecting to praise and worship Him, then I encourage you to memorize at least the first six verses of Psalm 103:

  1. Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name.
  2. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all His benefits
  3. Who forgives your sins and heals all your diseases,
  4. Who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
  5. Who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
  6. The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.

I wrote a worship song for kids (but anyone can sing it!) based on this psalm, which I titled “Look What He’s Done.” It has tremendously helped me to remember the benefits of the Lord, and it has inspired my soul to praise the Lord at all times. Download our “Look What He’s Done” (Psalm 103) chord sheet here, and listen below:

A good songwriting (and scripture memorization) exercise is to reflect on the psalms and try to set them to your own new melody. This will challenge and benefit you as a writer and a believer in Christ.

Speaking of benefits, let’s be diligent to remember all the ways God benefits us, and praise His holy name.
