Psalms of Praises

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
he is to be feared above all gods.
 For all the gods of the nations are idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
 Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and glory are in his sanctuary.
 Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come into his courts.
 Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth.
 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.
The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;
he will judge the peoples with equity.
 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes,
he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples in his faithfulness.
Psalm 96:4-13 (NIV)
Don't you just love when a songwriter uses scripture
as the foundation of their song so that as it comes
to mind you realize you are singing
Holy words?
I do!
This morning I noticed the words that I've highlighted in
blue and immediately a song started running
through my head.
What a joyful way to begin a day!

Yes, learning scripture as songs is a wonderful way to tuck it away in our hearts. I have opened the music in a new window so will head off singing to the next blog on my list. Have a sweet weekend, Becky!

I had a different song start in my head-I didn't really know the one you got stuck in your head.

I was hearing this one:

You're right-it's a great way to begin a day.
