The Church Year and the Lectionary Commentary - The 6th Sunday of Easter (Day 2)

Psalm 98 (The Message)

Sing to God a brand-new song. He's made a world of wonders!
   He rolled up his sleeves,
   He set things right.

 2 God made history with salvation,
   He showed the world what he could do.

 3 He remembered to love us, a bonus
   To his dear family, Israel—indefatigable love.
   The whole earth comes to attention.
   Look—God's work of salvation!

 4 Shout your praises to God, everybody!
   Let loose and sing! Strike up the band!

 5 Round up an orchestra to play for God,
   Add on a hundred-voice choir.

 6 Feature trumpets and big trombones,
   Fill the air with praises to King God.

 7 Let the sea and its fish give a round of applause,
   With everything living on earth joining in.

 8 Let ocean breakers call out, "Encore!"
   And mountains harmonize the finale—

 9 A tribute to God when he comes,
   When he comes to set the earth right.
   He'll straighten out the whole world,
   He'll put the world right, and everyone in it.
