Welcome to Elmhurst CRC's daily dose of the word of God. It's Wednesday, November 9 and Sunday's Coming. This is Kyle Olson and I serve as the Technical Director here at Elmhurst CRC. Today, I'll be reading from The Voice translation of Psalm 98.

Compose a new song, and sing it to the Eternal because of the unbelievable things He has done; He has won the victory with the skill of his right hand and strength of his holy arm. The Eternal has made it clear that he saves, and he has shown the nations that he does what is right. He has been true to his promises; fresh in his mind is his unfailing love for all of Israel. Even the ends of the earth have witnessed how our God saves. This hymn invites all the people on earth and creation itself to join in singing a new song of “beautiful noise” celebrating God’s justice and victories. Raise your voices; make a beautiful noise to the Eternal, all the earth. Let your joy explode into song and praise; Make music to the Eternal with the harp; sing a beautiful melody with the harp and chorus. With trumpets and horns, fill the air with joyful sounds to the King, the Eternal. Let the sea rumble and roar, and all the creatures it holds shout praise; let the whole world and all those who live in it join the celebration. Let the rivers applaud and the mountains join in joyful song in the presence of the Eternal because he is coming to judge the earth. He is coming, and his judgment will be what is right for the world and just to all people.

Let's pray. Lord, thank you for your eternal presence. Thank you for your creation. Thank you that your creation can shout your name. Help us to compose new songs. Help us to make new lyrics. Help us to figure out new ways to praise you Lord, because it is unending - the amount of praise that you deserve. We thank you for music. We thank you for worship. And we thank you for the beautiful noise that you allow us to create for your glory. Hold us near in your presence and help us to bring about your kingdom in this world. In your name, Amen.
