Living Psalm 100 Pentecost 26A
Living Psalms Book
Psalms in the form of words and art, reborn in the specific contexts of our world, privileging the voices of historically marginalized communities and those acting in solidarity with them.
Hear ye, hear ye! Everywhere and all people. Lift your voices. Shout it to the mountaintops! It’s ok to have fun praising God! Don’t be shy. Bask in the joy that comes only from God. There are times for seriousness but also times for revelry!
So, laugh. Loosen up. Play. Be happy. God loves to see you smile.
Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before God’s presence with singing.
We can relax in God’s presence, knowing that God is our creator and the maker of all good things. God is the shepherd, and we are the sheep. God is the leader and invites us to follow. Have faith and take hope. God has the final say!
Know that the Lord, Abba is God;
It is God who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are God’s people and the sheep of God’s pasture.
Praise God with singing. Praise God with gratitude.
Enter the room with a song in your heart. Tell everyone you know how good God has been.
Enter into God’s gates with thanksgiving,
And into God’s courts with praise.
Be thankful to God, and bless Abba’s name.
God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is good.
God’s love and tenderness never end! The fount of God’s love never runs dry!
For the LORD is good;
God’s mercy is everlasting,
And God’s truth endures to all generations.
