My God, I love thee;….

God lives in the place of praise.
If we want to be where He is, we need to go to His address.
~ Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Prayers of praise and adoration are found in almost every religious tradition. They are said, chanted, or sung to extol the love, compassion, greatness, and/or power of God.

My God, I love thee; not because
I hope for heaven thereby,
Nor yet because who love thee not
Are lost eternally;

Not with the hope of gaining aught;
Not seeking a reward;
But as thyself hast loved me,
O ever-loving Lord,

E’en so I love thee, and will love,
And in thy praise will sing,
Solely because thou art my God,
And my eternal King.

(Francis Xavier)
