Psalms 116:17 tells us “I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving and will call upon the name of the name of the Lord”¹

There is a cord-
Never is broken-everlasting.
Songs blasting.
A sacrifice acceptable well pleasing to God.
Now each worshipper is ready for the soldering.
Look-gather singers with instruments of music|
Now observe Like tuned to a rushing issue.
There give Songs of praise
Compassed about with many phrases.
Rejoicing| -Wide open
As mouth’s moistening.
Sing new songs
With hearts elated and longings
For the highest court of the king |
Let the voices ring|
Continually, daily, sing|
And Praise the Lord God with joy
So be glad blessed …people as we are seen as new toys.
Let every one abide in his calling
Along with faith, hope and charity unfailing
In grace built up bearing
Caring-
Engrafted-saved
As in a cave
With abundance
Thanksgivings of inward affection with dun.

This flows like a fountain and I'll bet that's what you were aiming for. Good word pictures here and a wonderful expression of praise.
