Sing unto the Lord with
Instruments skillfully played.
New notes to heaven raised
Glorify the Lord all His people!

”Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.” *

A new song from the soul
Never the praises ceasing.
Earth rings out with the sound
We come before the Lord.

“O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.” **

Sing unto the Lord
O children, worship the King.
Nearer to the throne we’re coming
Great is the Lord!

“I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.” ***

Shout and rejoice always
In the Lord our God.
Never will He leave us.
Glory to God our King on high!

“Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.” ****

* Psalm 33:3 (KJV)
** Psalm 96:1 (KJV)
*** Psalm 144:9 (KJV)
**** Psalm 149:1 (KJV)

Very nice--I like your title a lot, and also the way that you embellished each Psalm with your own words of praise.
Debbie Sickler11/09/05
This was creative, but I think I actually enjoyed it more when I read only your own words the second time. The verses you used were good and it was nice to see what inspired you, but the verses also reminded me of some songs, which distracted me from the flow of your own verses.
Alexandra Wilkin11/10/05
I have to agree with Debbie about this Shari; your words on their own were wonderfully spontaneous and heart felt praise and it flowed so well when read that way. God bless.
Brandi Roberts11/10/05
I agree! Very creative! A potential psalmist? I enjoyed.
Jan Ackerson 11/10/05
It's an acrostic! Woo hoo, and a high five to you--that's awesome.
Laurie Glass11/10/05
Creative and so nicely done. Good job.
Pat Guy 11/10/05
Wow! This was great! Just great! I absolutely loved this!
Suzanne R11/10/05
Very clever, Shari! If Jan hadn't pointed out it was an acrostic, I'd have missed it, but enjoyed it anyhow. But now I enjoy it so much more. Well done! Maybe bold initial letters would help ... but then it might be overdoing it. Nice experimentation here which is very successful ... look forward to seeing more!
Cassie Memmer11/10/05
Very good and creative! Great job!
Anita Neuman11/11/05
The poem is great on its own - but add the element of the acrostic, and it's quite brilliant! Great job!
Julianne Jones11/11/05
Fabulous! And keep the verses - I think they enhanced the overall piece. Well done Shari!
Val Clark11/12/05
Lovely, Shari. I could see this working as a responsive reading or processional. Yeggy
