Psalm 149

Praise the Lord.[a]
Sing to the Lord a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
    let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing
    and make music to him with tambourine and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
    he crowns the humble with victory.
Let his faithful people rejoice in this honour
    and sing for joy on their beds.
May the praise of God be in their mouths
    and a double-edged sword in their hands,
to inflict vengeance on the nations
    and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters,
    their nobles with shackles of iron,
to carry out the sentence written against them –
    this is the glory of all his faithful people.
Praise the Lord.

Lord may we rejoice in the honour (v4,5) that you delight in us and crown us with victory. May we be a humble, faithful, joyful people thanking you for all you have done! Amen.
