God Alone We Praise

September 26, 2018
By Martin Luther

Blessed are those who dwell in Your house, ever singing Your praise!

PSALM 84:4


God Alone We Praise

Since we receive everything from God, there is nothing that we can render Him but praise, and praise to Him alone. For a person cannot praise God only unless he understands that there is nothing in himself worthy of praise but that all that is worthy of praise is of God and from God. But since God is eternally praiseworthy, because He is the infinite Good and can never be exhausted, therefore they will praise Him forever and ever.

From First Lectures on the Psalms, on Psalm 84 (Luther's Works 11:144)
