Psalm 149

Sing to the LORD!

            1 Praise the LORD!

            Sing to the LORD a new song,

            And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.

·         Let us learn not to rejoice so much in the gift, as in the Giver, in the blessings received as in the Source of all comfort, in the good things enjoyed as in our King himself.

·         In nothing but his own infinite nature does God take such pleasure as in his people, the meek of the earth. He has done more for them and promised more to them, than to and for even angels, who never sinned against him.
