Peace and Happiness, Psalm 34

What God wants is our attention. What He wants is us. And in turn He gives us His attention. And He gives us Himself.

And that is peace. And that is life.

Oh my soul, there is no other road.

-From The Lent Project, Jessica Snell

Prayer
O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and in confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee, to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou art God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
— from The Book of Common Prayer

This is the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir performing Psalm 34, lyrics below. I viewed the video (free on Vimeo at the link) and followed along the lyrics.

Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
I sought the Lord
And He answered me
And delivered me
From every fear

Those who look on Him
Are radiant
They’ll never be ashamed
They’ll never be ashamed

This poor man cried
And the Lord heard me
And saved me from
My enemies

The Son of God
Surrounds His saints
He will deliver them
He will deliver them

[Chorus]
Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever

[Verse 2]
Oh taste and see
That the Lord is good
Oh blessed is he
Who hides in Him

Oh fear the Lord
Oh all you saints
He’ll give you everything|
He’ll give you everything

[Chorus]
Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever (x2)

[Bridge]
Let us bless the Lord
Every day and night
Never ending praise
May our incense rise (x4)

[Chorus]
Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever (x2)

Oh taste and see
That the Lord is good
He’ll give you everything
He’ll give you everything
