Let the words of my mouth

psalm-19-14

The Verse of the Day for October 16, 2016 is taken from Psalm 19:14 in the New Living Translation:

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

Listen to a recording of Psalm 19:7-14 from the King James Version read by Alexander Scourby, whom the Chicago Tribune described as having the greatest voice ever recorded.

The Book of Psalms, which also can be viewed as a collection of songs, has been the inspiration for countless musical compositions over the centuries. Here are three contemporary Christian songs based on the Verse of Day:

Fernando Ortega sings “Let the Words of My Mouth”

Another song inspired by Psalm 19:14 is “May the Words of My Mouth.” I could not identify the artist.

Johnny Holmes concludes with a rendition of Psalm 19:14 entitled “Song of My Heart”

Psalm 19:14 brings to mind these lyrics expressed as a prayer to God to begin this day.

Lord, give us a heart like David,

A man after your own heart.

Purify our motives and intentions,

Cleanse us and set us apart.

Lord, give us a heart like David.

Lord, give us a heart like David.

 

Lord, give us a heart to serve you,

With all that lies within us,

To follow in the footsteps of Jesus,

As we serve you faithfully.

Lord, give us a heart to serve you.

Lord, give us a heart to serve you.

 

Lord, give us a heart of worship,

Overflowing with your praise.

May our words and our deeds give you glory.

May we serve you all of our days.

Lord, give us a heart of worship.

Lord, give us a heart of worship.
