Delight Yourself In the One Who Delights In Us

Delight yourself in
The good God has done
He rescued us from bondage
Through Jesus Christ, His Son

Rejoice and boast in the Lord
For He has delivered us
So we can enter His kingdom
Because He's accepted us

Find joy in the Almighty
Call upon God at all times
Delight in the law of the Lord
Meditate on it day and night

What an inheritance we have!
Glory in God and His salvation
Shout for joy and be glad
For His servants will see vindication

Feast upon the Lord's abundance
Drink deeply from the river that flows
He will grant you the desire of your heart
And faithfully show where to go

Great are the works of the Lord
Ponder His laws, don't depart
Nor neglect His decrees, for He 
Counsels those with tender hearts

The Lord is compassionate
He saves us in our affliction
When trouble and distress come
Delight in God's vows, with conviction

Fear the Lord, and put your hope 
In His love that ever prevails
He rewards the humble with vict'ry 
Our Father corrects when we fail

Delight in wisdom
And be without blame,
Be worthy of trust
Lest you bring to God shame

For His love is 
Sweeter than wine
Rejoice and praise Him
Taste His goodness sublime

We are the ones in whom He takes pleasure 
To show mercy to, though He is just 
Bring reverence and honour to God 
Who sings songs of joy over us
