Psalm 99 – Transfiguration C
Living Psalm 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.
God transcends Governments. Let humanity wonder.
Holy Beings encircle the Throne. Let Creation Roar.
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord.
This is God,
Lover of Justice,
Setting All things right,
This is God,
Bringing Justice in the Land.
The ancient ones worshipped the God of justice,
So many cried aloud, and they were saved.
Coming in mysterious ways, the God of Justice declared what is right and good, and some kept those ways.
They cried aloud, and they were saved.
And some neglected to do justice, and God avenged.
Hear this, all you people, God is Holy.
Worship God through your action.
God is Holy!
Living Psalm for Transfiguration C: Psalm 99 was written by Bec Cranford.
