May 13, 2022 - Psalms 95-100

Every once in awhile, it seems appropriate just to quote Scripture rather than commenting on it. Often, throughout the week, Levi will post something and call us to sing. As Christians, we ought to be a singing people. We have something, someone, to sing about! And the psalmist calls us to this joyful task.


“Oh sing to the Lord a new song;

sing to the Lord, all the earth!

Sing to the Lord, bless his name;

tell of his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous works among all the peoples!

For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;

he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,

but the Lord made the heavens.

Splendor and majesty are before him;

Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary” –Psalm 96:1-6


Reflecting on this psalm, David Herbert wrote these words, which we sing as the hymn “Let All the World in Every Corner Sing.”


Let all the world in ev’ry corner sing,

“My God and King!”

The heav’ns are not too high,

God’s praise may thither fly;

the earth is not too low,

God’s praises there may grow.

Let all the world in ev’ry corner sing,

“My God and King!” --David Herbert (17th century)

The Bible is a fascinating book. It directs us to God. It tells us the truth about ourselves and invites us to the Savior. It tells us that all we have is a gift from God, and at the same time, ins
