Praise God with all your heart!
You may be sad,
Know, though, that God loves you from the very start!
Let your kind soul be cheerfully glad!
It may be hard
Because the world is cruel;
Whole nations are eaten as lard…
Don’t give up, let people see the shining of your jewel!

Give thanks to God with a cheerful heart –
Cheerful praise is well pleasing to Him truly.
Give thanks early in the morning from the start;
Rejoice in Him fully!

Do things at once
Like helping the poor,
Like completing a task.
Be the doer,
Praise, give, ask.
Always in prayer,
Patient, but never an idle “stayer”.

Rejoice in life and live!
Praise God and thankful be.
You have so much, believe.
Here is an example: an ant and a bee.
They work with an easy heart,
They are glad they are alive
And are happy about every body part.
Don’t worry, one day all flowers thrive.
You are more than that!
You are man!
God will make your road smooth and flat.
Rejoice, enjoy your fruit and bread with bran!

Praise the Lord for He is Gracious!
He takes your foot out of hardships and puts it in a place which is spacious.
Praise the Lord and sacrifice the sacrifice of thanksgiving!
Let your praise be living!

Praise God with a grateful heart.
Let your praise, both big and small be sincere.
Have time to say “Thank You” to Him whether you go far or near.
God will make a way, continue doing your part.

Be happy – the shortest and the only way is Christ.
Direct your ways to Him in all:
At home, at work, at leisure…
Let your kind deeds be filled with pleasure.
Keep Him in sight in winter, spring, summer, and fall.
Praise Him as if tomorrow may never come –
Say those kind words, do kind deeds, keep calm.

God has delivered you out of a deep pit;
Out of many troubles He saved.
Declare God’s works with rejoicing,
And let your words be seasoned with wit!
With good deeds let your words be paved.
Let your praise be with a cheerful voicing!
