Crosstown Psalm

We are taking Psalm 136 and rewriting it as a Crosstown Psalm of thanks. David gives us a great example of praise to the Lord and remembrance of His deliverance. The Old Testament is full of intentional praise and remembrances of God's deliverance. Apparently it is easy to forget what He has already led us through. That's why this year we are trying to remember Crosstown's history.
What kind of verses would you include in a Psalm about Crosstown's history?  Leave your thoughts in the comments. 
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.
to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.
who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever.
who spread out the earth upon the waters,
His love endures forever.
who made the great lights—
His love endures forever.
the sun to govern the day,
His love endures forever.
the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures forever.

to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt
His love endures forever.
and brought Israel out from among them
His love endures forever.
with a mighty hand and outstretched arm;
His love endures forever.
to him who divided the Red Sea asunder
His love endures forever.
and brought Israel through the midst of it,
His love endures forever.
but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea;
His love endures forever.
to him who led his people through the wilderness;
His love endures forever.
to him who struck down great kings,
His love endures forever.
and killed mighty kings—
His love endures forever.
Sihon king of the Amorites
His love endures forever.
and Og king of Bashan—
His love endures forever.
and gave their land as an inheritance,
His love endures forever.
an inheritance to his servant Israel.
His love endures forever.


He remembered us in our low estate
His love endures forever.
and freed us from our enemies.
His love endures forever.
He gives food to every creature.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of heaven.
His love endures forever.

In confinement, brings His presence.

Needing wisdom, He gives extra measure when we need the extra.

After experiencing the destruction of a house fire,

He reinforced what is everlasting.

His love endures forever.
