2109.04.07 Opening of Worship

The opening portion of our worship service this coming Lord's Day comes from Psalm 149:1-4. This Psalm highlights the Lord's pleasure in His people's assembly in the temple. It refers to the assembly of the saints, the location of Zion, the King (of kings!), and the Levitical musicians' ministry that prefigured the current heavenly ministry of Christ as our Great High Priest.
    1      Praise the LORD!
    Sing to the LORD a new song,
    And His praise in the assembly of saints. 
    2      Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
    Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
    3      Let them praise His name with the dance;
    Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel                          and harp.
    4      For the LORD takes pleasure in His people;
    He will beautify the humble with salvation.
