Inspired by Psalm 34, Let us exalt His Name is a worship song written by Stuart Dauermann in 1982. I was drawn to Psalm 34 by the song.

Psalm 34

I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.

I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The [a]angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no 
[b]want to those who fear Him.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

11 Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 Who is the man who desires life,
And loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
[c]cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as 
[d]have a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He guards all his bones;
Not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous shall be 
22 The Lord redeems the soul of His servants,
And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.

Teaching of Psalm 34

Psalm 34 is a “song” sang by David when he was hiding from King Saul and Abimelech king of Gad. 

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 angel encamps 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.

Lyrics for Let Us Exalt His Name

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.

The video clip below is the version sang by Joseph Prince. I hope it ministers to you as it did me.

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

Finally, I know that Abba God can do all these good things for me because of Jesus. He is the blessing God poured out (Malachi 3) which overflows.

Be Greatly Blessed, Phoebe
