Title: Alleluia! Laud and Blessing
Paraphraser: Michael Morgan
Publication Date: 2012
Meter: D
Scripture: ;
Topic: Acrostic Psalms; Covenant; Disciples / Calling (39 more...)

Notes: Pss. 111 and 112, both acrostic psalms, are cast as a pair. This free paraphrase by Michael Morgan holds the two psalms together. St. 1, based on Ps. 111, praises God’s wonderful works and faithfulness. St. 2, based on Ps. 112, further recounts God’s gifts to humanity and our obligation to reflect God’s graciousness in how we live. The final stanza reflects both psalms together, emphasizing that it is the fear of the Lord that brings us to wisdom (Ps. 111:10).
