Worthy of Praise #NaPoWriMo2017 #GloPoWriMo2017

Calling to the Lord, most worthy of praise
He gave me a new song, a hymn of praise

Praise the Lord, my soul, enthroned Holy One
To your holy name be eternal praise

All my inmost being, will sing and rejoice
Unseal my lips, Lord, to declare your praise

All praise the Lord, you his faithful people
Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise,

Shout for joy to the Lord, shout all the earth
Rejoice and sing to him a psalm of praise

Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous people
In glory of his name, make raucous praise

He holds keys to your hearts, by faith unlocked
Let all generations proclaim his praise

The NaPoWriMo.net official prompt for Day 13 of Na/GloPoWriMo2017 is to write a ghazal. The form was originally developed in Arabic and Persian poetry, but has become increasingly used in English, after being popularized by poets including Agha Shahid Ali. A ghazal is formed of couplets, each of which is its own complete statement. Both lined of the first couplet end with the same phrae or end-word, and that end-word is also repeated at the end of each couplet. If you’re really feeling inspired, you can also attempt to incorporate internal rhymes and a reference to your own name in the final couplet.
