This excerpt comes from Psalms for All Seasons, commenting on Psalm 98:
Psalm 98 calls all of creation to praise God.
It emphasizes that God is the God not only of Israel (v. 3) but also of the whole world (v. 9), and that God’s enthronement is for the purpose of sovereign governance, a rule that will reveal, in the words of Isaac Watts, “the wonders of his love.”
Prayer for reflection:
Victorious God, all creation lifts its voice in a cacophony of joyful praise.
In your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
you have come to judge the world in truth and equity.
We await his return to make all things new,
joining creation’s chorus with our new songs of praise. Amen.
