A central part of Christian worship and faith is giving thanks to God, praising His almighty love and dominion over all things. We can find inspiration to praise the Lord in hymns that honor the glory of God.
"Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!" ~ Psalm 106:1
"Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament! Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness! Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!" ~ Psalm 150

All Creatures of Our God and King

The lamb upon the throne:
Hark! How the heav'nly anthem drowns
All Music but its own!
How Firm a Foundation
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word
What more can He say than to you He hath said
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled
How Great Thou Art
O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed
A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

A bulwark never failing:
Our helper He, amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing.

Praise Him! praise Him! ever in joyful song!
Holy, Holy, Holy
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning, our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful, and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood
