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.
16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.
Psalmorum Liber is a series where we will walk through the Book of Psalms with an eye on how we interact with the world and give praise to our God. As God’s children, our chief concern is to know him and enjoy him while we sojourn here in our temporary home.
As we walk through the Psalms, we will come to recognize these were psalms (songs) written down, not only as expressions of the original authors towards God, but also for our edification and sanctification. These songs have been identified as a means for the church to reflect upon a deep and real theology for a real world. Indeed, these psalms will assist us in living a very real life that glorifies God while living in a very real world that does the exact opposite.
Every Thursday evening, we will endeavor to learn more about ourselves, more about our God, and how these songs will have a deep and significant impact on our lives and our worship. Verse by verse, chapter by chapter.
