CELEBRATING BAHAMIAN PRAISE (4) – “OH LORD WE GIVE YOU PRAISE”
“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.”
(Psalms 150:6 – NIV, 1984)
God is a God of variety and has children all over the face of the earth from every race and culture and each of them have a unique way to sing praises to His Name.
As many of you know I am a Bahamian who resides in Nassau Bahamas and although Bahamian Christians/Believers sing praise songs birthed from the nations of the earth, we as a people also write praise songs and have a distinct way to praise the Lord.
My next few posts are dedicated to sharing some of our Bahamian praise songs with you.
Isaiah 42:10 declares, “Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them.” (Isaiah 42:10 – NIV, 1984)
As you listen to the song “Oh Lord We Give You Praise”, may your heart be warmed, your spirit blessed and praise come forth out of your lips.
“Therefore in the east give glory to the Lord;
exalt the name of the Lord, the God of Israel,
in the islands of the sea.”
“The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.”
