“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.”
Sing praise as we come to the week of the birth of our Lord. Sing praise and offer thanks with hearts and hands raised. A dear friend gives without asking or seeking thanks—in fact, the praise received can be unnerving. Yet, I am compelled to offer thanks. The gratitude changes me; calls me to recognize the goodness and gift of another. So too our gratitude to our Lord changes us; shifts our vision to that of the goodness and grace constantly given.
Prayer: As the holiest of nights draws near, let us reflect on the gratitude in our hearts and sing out.
Ever-giving God, we thank you, with all our hearts we sing praise. Amen
