Psalm 97: Rejoice, the Lord is King!


Rejoice! The Lord is King!

Lift up your heart,

lift up your voice; rejoice;

again I say, rejoice.

Power! All the forces in the planet

are powered by the Lord.

Love! All the love in the universe

flows from the Lord.

Joy! All the happiness in the world

is given by the Lord.

Thanks! All our thanks we give back to you.

The three gifts had a spiritual meaning:

gold as a symbol of kingship on earth,

frankincense (an incense) as a symbol of deity,

and myrrh (an embalming oil) as a symbol of death.
