CQOD: 12/26/06 -- Watts: Psalm 98

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 26, 2006
Feast of Stephen, Deacon, First Martyr
    Oh sing to the LORD a new song,
        for he has done marvelous things!
    His right hand and his holy arm
        have worked salvation for him.
    The LORD has made known his salvation;
        he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
    -- Psalm 98:1-2 (ESV)

    Joy to the world! the Lord is come!
        Let earth receive her King;
    Let every heart prepare him room,
        And heav’n and nature sing.

    Joy to the earth! the Savior reigns!
        Let men their songs employ,
    While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains,
        Repeat the sounding joy.

    No more let sins and sorrows grow,
        Nor thorns infest the ground;
    He comes to make his blessings flow
        Far as the curse is found.

    He rules the world with truth and grace,
        And makes the nations prove
    The glories of his righteousness,
        And wonders of his love.
    ... Isaac Watts (1674-1748), Psalm 98 from Psalms of David Imitated [1719]

Quiet time reflection:
    I rejoice in God my Savior!
