In Which We Start the Week with Awe (and another Music-Monday)

Psalm 96

Sing God a brand-new song!
Earth and everyone in it, sing!
Sing to God—worship God!

     Shout the news of his victory from sea to sea,
Take the news of his glory to the lost,
News of his wonders to one and all!

      For God is great, and worth a thousand Hallelujahs.
His terrible beauty makes the gods look cheap;
Pagan gods are mere tatters and rags.

 God made the heavens—
Royal splendor radiates from him,
A powerful beauty sets him apart.

 Bravo, God, Bravo!
Everyone join in the great shout: Encore!
In awe before the beauty, in awe before the might.

 Bring gifts and celebrate,
Bow before the beauty of God,
Then to your knees—everyone worship!

 Get out the message—God Rules!
He put the world on a firm foundation;
He treats everyone fair and square.

 Let’s hear it from Sky,

With Earth joining in,
And a huge round of applause from Sea.

   Let Wilderness turn cartwheels,
Animals, come dance,
Put every tree of the forest in the choir—

  An extravaganza before God as he comes,
As he comes to set everything right on earth,
Set everything right, treat everyone fair.

  1. Praise Him! One of my favorite songs to shout out and raise my hands to in the car (on the rare occasion that my children aren’t with me and in charge of the iPod!). Haven’t heard the acoustic version. Thanks for sharing!
