Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD. (KJV)
Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) (AMP)
Let every living creature praise the LORD. Shout praises to the LORD! (CEV)
This week the Hyssongs came to our Young At Heart (55 plus) gathering and sang for us. They did a fantastic program of song and praise to our Lord. Last year when they came, they gave me permission to use their music in these Sunday Inspirations. (They are copyrighted and need permission-please, do not copy)
I have purchased their latest CD ~ “Right Time – Right Place” and wanted to share this song, “God Is Great.” Trust you will enjoy their song, what it says, and enjoy our avian friends and some others singing their praise.
Here are a few quotes about Psalm 150 from two commentaries:
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD! (NKJV)
Constable – Psalms 150
The inspired poet called on every person to praise Yahweh for His powerful deeds and supreme greatness (10 times out of the 13 uses of “praise” in this psalm). This psalm serves as a final doxology, bringing the collection of psalms to a solemn and joyful conclusion.
“The conclusion of the Psalter is this extravagant summons to praise, which seeks to mobilize all creation with a spontaneous and unreserved act of adoration, praise, gratitude, and awe. There are no ‘bases’ given; no reason needs to be given.” [Note: Brueggemann, p. 167.]
Biblical Illustrator – “IV. By whom (verse 6). Here the psalmist reaches the climax in his exhortation; he has exhausted language; he can particularize no more; he rushes to the culmination; he demands a universal outburst of adoration; he calls upon all in whom the breath of life is to help swell the “hallelujah chorus!” O what a thrilling crash of melody! what a volume of perfect harmony, when animate and inanimate creation, with all creatures, rising rank upon rank, order above order, species above species, purged from corruption, delivered from all evil, and attuned to the euphony of the skies—when “everything that hath breath,” the consecrated breath Divine—“shall join in one harmonious song, and crown Him Lord of all!” (J. O. Keen, D. D.)”
Let everything that breathes praise Jehovah. Praise Jehovah! (LITV-TSP)
Todo lo que respira alabe á JAH. Aleluya. (SRV)

Thanks for doing us all “a good tern” with this post, Lee. The kingfisher was pehaps my favorite — though they all are interesting and precious birds.
