Psalm & Praise – U2’s “40” (lyrics) – A Song of Thanksgiving


“I waited patiently for the LORD;
And He inclined to me and heard my cry.

He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.

He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the LORD.”

Psalm 40:1-3

“And yet, along comes this idea called Grace to upend all that “as you reap, so will you sow” stuff. Grace defies reason and logic. Love interrupts, if you like, the consequences of your actions, which in my case is very good news indeed, because I’ve done a lot of stupid stuff.I’m holding out for Grace. I’m holding out that Jesus took my sins onto the Cross, because I know who I am, and I hope I don’t have to depend on my own religiosity.” ~ Bono

        I am in Australia and no public holiday here..I think our Christmas is the equivalent of your thanks giving. Please correct me if I am wrong..


        1. We have Christmas also…Thanksgiving is a day to commemorate the people who first settled the country…they had a very hard time surviving, but they took time to set apart a feast day to celebrate the New World.
