“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; Let the sea resound and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy.” Psalms 98:4,7-8 NIV
My favorite part of a church worship service is the singing. Everyone gets to participate in singing praises to our Lord. We join our voices and raise them to our God. It is interactive. Whether it’s old hymns or newer praise songs, it’s uplifting and cumulative. It bonds us in praise and worship for our amazing God.
I love the poetry of our verse from Psalms. All creation joins together in song and music to joyfully shout praises to the Lord. Let us add our voices to all of creation’s music.
Sing with All Creation
The ocean waves crash into the shore, establishing the beat.
Whales and orcas sing enchanting underwater lyrical suites.
Otters float on their backs and squeak thanks for their meal.
Barking and splashing adds to God’s praise, the joy of a seal.
The whole world joins in joyful worship as the mountains sing.
Elephants trumpet, lions roar, and chimps chatter to the King.
The rivers clap as white-water splashes over rocks, rebounds.
Let’s raise our voices with all creation, let joy and praise resound.
This week take time to join in the song of praise to our Lord, our God, our Savior. Step out into creation and listen to the sounds of joy and praise. Add your voice to worship the Creator.
I thank God for each of you! And I thank you for joining me this week as we join with all creation to sing to our Lord.
Blessings and joy!
