Declare His Glory: Psalm 96:1-3

A Song of Praise

Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
3 Declare His glory among the [a]nations,
His wonders among all peoples.

Psalm 96 1-3 (NKJV)

Psalm 96 is a praise song, a song of good news, and a song of joy. It was written during the time David brought the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem. The people were encouraged to sing to the Lord, a new song for God’s wondrous works. To sing in praise and with thanksgiving. Let us join in the chorus and sing to the Lord.

Psalm 96 is sometimes referred to as the “missionary psalm” since it encourages us to declare God’s glory among the nations to all people. Declare to all, the Glory of God, and proclaim the good news of God’s salvation. Lord let our thoughts, words, and deeds praise you.

The new year is a great time to thank the Lord, praise Him, and proclaim the good news. Will you take time and declare His wonders and glory?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we raise our voices in praise and thanksgiving for all you have done for us. We thank You for Your forgiveness, grace, and mercy. We praise You for Your love and compassion. We proclaim the good news of Your salvation and declare Your Glory to all. Like the petals radiate on the chrysanthemum flower, let us radiate Your light and love to all people. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

Joy to the World

Words by Isaac Watts

Joy to the world, the Lord is come
Let earth receive her king
Let every heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world the savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains


Repeat the sounding joy (repeat the sounding joy)
Repeat the sounding joy (repeat the sounding joy)
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness
And wonders of his love (wonders of his love)
And wonders of his love (wonders of his love)


And wonders, wonders of his love
And wonders, wonders of his love
And wonders, wonders of his love

Joy to the world
The wonders of your love
The wonders of your love!

Joy to the World is Isaac Watts interpretation of Psalm 98 and celebrates Christ’s second coming as well as His birth.

The Messiah’s Coming and Kingdom

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.
8 Let the rivers clap their hands,
let the mountains sing together for joy;
9 let them sing before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples with equity.

Psalm 98: 4-9

Holy, Holy, Holy – Lord God Almighty

written by, Reginald Heber

Holy, holy, holy
Lord, God Almighty
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee


Holy, holy, holy
Merciful and mighty
God in three persons blessed Trinity
Holy, holy, holy


Though the darkness hide Thee
Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee
Perfect in power, in love, and purity


Holy, holy, holy
Lord, God Almighty
All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth and sky and sea


Holy, holy, holy
Merciful and mighty
God in three persons blessed Trinity

Praise the Lord: Psalm 150: 5-6

5Praise him with resounding cymbals; praise him with clashing cymbals. 6Let everything that breathes praise the LORD. Hallelujah!

Psalm 150:6 CEB

In the early spring mornings, my backyard is a natural symphony filled with birds in song. It is an uplifting start to my day. How so must the Lord feel when we awake to praise and worship Him. When we start the day with praise, adoration, and glory to God, it opens our hearts to our many blessings. No, we don’t need cymbals or even perfect songs, just love and adoration for Our Father, the Creator of earth. Hallelujah, praise the Lord! He is good!

How will you praise the Lord today, with prayer, song, glowing words, or with cymbals? Or perhaps all the above.

Prayer: Our holy, and loving Father, we thank you for your love, grace, and blessings. We adore You and praise You. You are our hope and our joy. As the bell-like campanula flowers seem to ring in a symphony of blooms, let our voices rise in a symphony of praise for You our threefold God. In Jesus’ holy name. Hallelujah! Amen.

Sing: 1 Chronicles 16:23

23 Sing to God, everyone and everything! Get out his salvation news every day!

1 Chronicles 16:23 The Message

23 Sing to the LORD, all the earth! Share the news of his saving work every single day!

1 Chronicles 16:23 (CEB)

Sing a joyful song to the Lord, express your adoration, open your voice in praise. For God is good, he is worthy of our exaltation and praiseful worship. When we sing our thoughts are quieted, and our hearts open to God with deeper feelings. God doesn’t judge our voice he just is waiting for us to make a joyful noise and share his salvation news with others. Let the heavens shout with joy! Holy, holy is our God!

How will you express your adoration to God today? Will you sing with joy?

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we worship and praise You. We raise our voices to sing our love for You. Lord, we sing in thankfulness for Your forgiveness, salvation, and love. Like the bright open iris blossoms heralds, spring, help us sing open-hearted expressing our joy to You. In Jesus’ glorious name. Amen
