The Lord Be With You Today!
Sing for joy, you heavens, for the Lord has done this;
(Even the heavens sing a song of rejoicing in the work of its Creator.
Today, we rejoice because of the Lord’s redemption.
We rejoice and joyfully lift our voices in praise
because of what He has done for us and in us.)
shout aloud, you earth beneath.
Burst into song, you mountains,
you forests and all your trees,
(Even the earth sings a song of rejoicing in the work of its Creator.
The created cannot help but respond to its Creator.
We cannot help but respond in joyful praise to our Creator.)
for the Lord has redeemed Jacob,
He displays his glory in Israel.
(Today, the Lord God Almighty,
He Who made a covenant of love with us,
declaring that we belong to Him
and that He has chosen to be our God, has redeemed each of us.
The very idea of redemption carries the idea
of deliverance and rescue and liberation from a dire and disastrous position.
Today, He has brought us up out of the darkness
and hopelessness of our situations
so that He can reveal His glory to us and show the world His love.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
