Biblical Fireworks

4 Jul

I just heard this on the radio and I thought how appropriate it was for our Independence Day. Here is a fireworks display – courtesy of David.

Happy Birthday America,

May God continue to bless us.

Psalm 19

    1 The heavens tell of the glory of God.
       The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship.

    2 Day after day they continue to speak;
       night after night they make him known.

    3 They speak without a sound or a word;
       their voice is silent in the skies;

    4 yet their message has gone out to all the earth,
       and their words to all the world. The sun lives in the heavens
       where God placed it.

    5 It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom
       after his wedding. It rejoices like a great athlete
       eager to run the race.

    6 The sun rises at one end of the heavens
       and follows its course to the other end.
       Nothing can hide from its heat.

    7 The law of the LORD is perfect,
       reviving the soul. The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy,
       making wise the simple.

    8 The commandments of the LORD are right,
       bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are clear,
       giving insight to life.

    9 Reverence for the LORD is pure,
       lasting forever. The laws of the LORD are true;
       each one is fair.

    10 They are more desirable than gold,
       even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey,
       even honey dripping from the comb.

    11 They are a warning to those who hear them;
       there is great reward for those who obey them.

    12 How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
       Cleanse me from these hidden faults.

    13 Keep me from deliberate sins!
       Don’t let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt
       and innocent of great sin.

    14 May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart
       be pleasing to you,
       O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
