The Worship Quote of the Week for (02/17/1998):

Thanksgiving Psalm
Today's WORSHIP QUOTE is a very familiar psalm, but in a fresh setting by
Eugene Peterson. If the shock is too great, you can look at Psalm 100 in your
favorite translation.


On your feet now-applaud Yahweh!
Bring a gift of laughter,
sing yourself into his presence.

Know this: Yahweh is God, and God Yahweh.
He made us; we didn't make him.
We're his people, his well-tended sheep.

Enter with the password: "Thank you!"
Make yourself at home, talking praise.
Thank him. Worship him.

For Yahweh is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.

- Eugene H. Peterson, from THE MESSAGE: PSALMS, NavPress, 1994.
