“Let them sing songs of praise” – St. James 5:13

Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle: *

sing to the Lord, all the earth.

Sing ye to the Lord and bless His name: *

shew forth His salvation from day to day.

Declare His glory among the Gentiles: *

His wonders among all people.

For the Lord is great, and exceedingly to be praised: *

He is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: *

but the Lord made the heavens.

Praise and beauty are before Him: *

holiness and majesty in His sanctuary.

Calendar

Bring ye to the Lord, O ye kindreds of the Gentiles, *

bring ye to the Lord glory and honour:

Bring to the Lord glory unto His name. *

Bring up sacrifices, and come into His courts:

Adore ye the Lord in His holy court. *

Let all the earth be moved at His presence.

Say ye among the Gentiles, the Lord hath reigned.

For He hath corrected the world, which shall not be moved: *

He will judge the people with justice.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad, *

let the sea be moved, and the fulness thereof:

The fields and all things that are in them shall be joyful. *

Then shall all the trees of the woods rejoice

Before the face of the Lord, because He cometh: *

because He cometh to judge the earth.

He shall judge the world with justice, *

and the people with His truth.

Psalm 95
