Not to us, Lord, not to us
Not to us, LORD, not to us
but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness.
- Were it not for God’s love and faithfulness, all humankind would be exalted.
- God’s love and faithfulness precede all humankind.
- Therefore, all humankind is not exalted.
And so, the Psalmist concludes “it is we who extol the LORD, both now and forevermore. Praise the LORD” (Ps 115:18).
