The dead do not praise the LORD, nor do any who go down into silence. But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and forevermore. Praise the LORD!
How can I praise You if I am dead to You? How can I tell of Your mighty works if the eyes of my heart are blind? How can I sing of Your glory if I am mute? If my ears are stopped, how can I hear Your golden voice?
But I am alive, I can hear and speak, I can sing; Your glories can pour out through me; I'm alive in You. I can praise You, my Lord, my Master, my Redeemer, from this time forth and forever more.
