Psalm 98 and “Shout to the Lord”
“Shout to the Lord” by Darlene Zschech and Psalm 98 go well together. Here is a responsive reading that uses both pieces (play the music softly in the background during the readings):
P: 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.
C: The LORD has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
P: He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
C: Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn— shout for joy before the LORD, the King.
Congregation Sings: (Shout to the Lord – BOB#189) Verse & Chorus
P: Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.
C: Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;
P: let them sing before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth.
C: He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.
