Let us exalt His Name is a worship song written by Stuart Dauermann in 1982. The lyrics are heavily inspired by Psalm 34.
Psalm 34 is written and sang by David when he was hiding from King Saul and Abimelech king of Gad.
Even though his life was in danger, He continues to praise and bless the Lord. He knew the Lord is good and that by seeking the Lord, he shall be safe.
34 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. 3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. 6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. 9 O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. 10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. 12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. 14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. 16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. 20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. 21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. 22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.Psalm 34
Let Us Exalt His Name Lyrics
At all times I will bless Him. His praise will be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord. The humble man will hear of Him. The afflicted will be glad, And join with me to magnify the Lord. Let us exalt His name together forever. I sought the Lord, He heard me and delivered me from my fears. Let us exalt His name together forever. Oh, sing His praises and magnify the Lord. The angel of the Lord encamps, round those who fear His name, To save them and deliver them from harm. Though lions roar with hunger, We lack for no good thing, No wonder then we praise Him with our song. Come, children now and hear me, If you would see long life, Just keep your lips from wickedness and lies, Do good and turn from evil, Seek peace instead of strife, Love righteousness and God will hear your cry.
Teaching on Psalm 34
The video clip below is a sermon excerpt by Joseph Prince expounding Psalm 34.
I find comfort in Abba God’s promise to hear me and deliver me from my fears. I imagine His angels encamp around me and save me and deliver me from harm.
Both my internal fears and external dangers are taken care of. Abba God thinks of everything.
Finally, I know that Abba God can do all these good things for me because of Jesus. He is the overflowing blessing God poured out in Malachi 3.

I found this version in Hebrew. It is refreshing to listen to a worship song in Hebrew. The guy has a good voice.
