Psalm 98 – Sing a Song of Praise

Today I’m going to the Rock and Worship Roadshow, and so I thought it would be appropriate to post a Psalm about singing praises to the Lord. All of the bands that are playing at the show sing many wonderful songs of praise. I am looking forward to an evening of singing praises along with my Christian brothers and sisters who will also be attending.

Psalm 98 (NIV)

A psalm. 

1 Sing to the LORD a new song,
   for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm
   have worked salvation for him.
2 The LORD has made his salvation known
   and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
3 He has remembered his love
   and his faithfulness to Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen
   the salvation of our God. 

4 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth,
   burst into jubilant song with music;
5 make music to the LORD with the harp,
   with the harp and the sound of singing,
6 with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn—
   shout for joy before the LORD, the King. 

7 Let the sea resound, and everything in it,
   the world, and all who live in it.
8 Let the rivers clap their hands,
   let the mountains sing together for joy;
9 let them sing before the LORD,
   for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
   and the peoples with equity.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    Thanks for posting Psalm 98. Loving the visuals here! :
    “7 Let the sea resound, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it.
    8 Let the rivers clap their hands,
    let the mountains sing together for joy;
    9 let them sing before the LORD,
    for he comes to judge the earth.”

    Blessings,

  2. What power and passion are in that psalm! There is nothing as beautiful as voices of Believers coming together in song and rejoicing.

    The little Baptist church I attend when we move to Michigan for the summer always has a row of “domestics” who work for the super rich folks out on the point. They are beautiful black ladies, older, wearing hats, and living for the Lord. And you should hear the music we make together… hymns, very traditional… but it sounds like angels singing.

    I hope you had a blast with your friends. I’m sure you knew every single song! : )

    • Linda, There were some great songs where everyone sang in the whole coliseum, and it was awesome! I love that sound. But there were some songs by a few of the bands that I didn’t know. I enjoyed it all anyway, just to be together with brothers and sisters in the Lord! I think I would enjoy hearing those beautiful black ladies sing, too! Peace, Linda

  3. Loved the new photo! And I don’t think I’ve told you how much I love your HOPE banner. When it appears . . .it just makes me happy!
    Loved the psalm with your worship at the show today! “Let the rivers clap their hands.” . . .and lovely Linda too!
    God bless you and thank you for always thinking about us and making sure we’re fed our Psalm today!

    • Deb, Thanks, you’re so sweet. There is actually a story behind the HOPE sign that I took a picture of for the banner. I’ll have to write a post about it one of these days. The show was great! Look for more about it tomorrow. Peace, Linda

    • Rea, I had a great time. I will be posting something about it tomorrow. It’s too late tonight and I’m tired. 😉 Yes, the new picture is me with my naturally straight hair instead of a perm like I’ve had for years. 🙂 Peace, Linda
