The Word of God

Psalm 98

Refrain: The Lord has made known his salvation
         1    Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvellous things.
         2    His own right hand and his holy arm have won for him the victory.
         3    The Lord has made known his salvation; his deliverance has he openly shown in the sight of the nations.
         4    He has remembered his mercy and faithfulness towards the house of Israel, and all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
Refrain:  The Lord has made known his salvation
         5    Sound praises to the Lord, all the earth; break into singing and make music.
         6    Make music to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and the voice of melody.
         7    With trumpets and the sound of the horn sound praises before the Lord, the King.
Refrain:  The Lord has made known his salvation
         8    Let the sea thunder and all that fills it, the world and all that dwell upon it.
         9    Let the rivers clap their hands and let the hills ring out together before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.
         10  In righteousness shall he judge the world and the peoples with equity.
Refrain:  The Lord has made known his salvation
              
Lord God, just and true, you make your salvation known in the sight of the nations; tune the song of our hearts to the music of creation as you come among us to judge the earth;
             through our Saviour Jesus Christ.

All         Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;
             as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

A Short Reading

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord, the Spirit.
                                                            2 Cor 3:17-18

Response

Silence, study, song, or words from Scripture.

            and the glory are yours
            now and for ever.

            And forgive us our trespasses,
            as we forgive those who trespass against us.
            And lead us not into temptation; 
            but deliver us from evil. 
            For thine is the kingdom,
            the power and the glory,
            for ever and ever.
            Amen.
