Sing to the Lord, Praise His Name;

I Will Sing to the Lord
For My Heart is Glad!
 My heart is indeed glad. As I have reported last week, my extended family has increased by one beautiful little girl. I was singing to her in the shower today of God’s love for her and that He has a plan for her. I was singing my thanks to God for this new life. I prayed blessings over her and her mother for I know that my God will do exceedingly more than I can possibly ask for. I read Psalm 96 and it is so beautiful and it reflects how my heart feels. So here it is;
1 Sing to the Lord a new song;
    sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, praise His name;
    proclaim His salvation day after day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
    His marvelous deeds among all peoples.

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    He is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the nations are idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before Him;
    strength and glory are in His sanctuary.

Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name;
    bring an offering and come into His courts.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of His[a] holiness;
    tremble before Him, all the earth.
10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.”
    The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;
    He will judge the peoples with equity.

11 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
    let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
    let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
13 Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for He comes,
    He comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
    and the peoples in His faithfulness.
May your heart be glad and may there be a song in your heart also; for the Lord is good and His mercy endures forever.
