"Psalms as Songs"


BIBLE READING: Psalm 95, 97-99
                It is important for us to remember that as David penned these Psalms, he penned them with the idea that they would be sung.  These words were sung by various believers all throughout the kingdom of Israel.  It would have been nice to know what these songs would have sounded like as they would have sung them in the Hebrew.  However, today we continue to sing many of these psalms; the tunes maybe different but we still sing then nonetheless.  Specifically, we have two separate songs from Psalm 95; see if you recognize them:
                “Come, let us sing with joy to the LORD. Let us shout aloud to the Rock of our            
               salvation.
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song.  
For the LORD is a great God, the great King above all gods. 
In His hands are the depths of the earth and the mountain peaks belong to Him the sea is His He made it; and His hands the formed the dry land” (Psalm 95:1-5)
And
            “Come, let us worship and bow down.
            Let us kneel before the LORD our God, our Maker.
                Come, let us worship and bow down.
            Let us kneel before the LORD our God, our Maker.
            For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.
            And the sheep of His hand.”           (Psalm 95.6-7)
