Worship the Lord in Gladness

Psalm 100

Passages for Meditation

Raise a shout for the Lord, all the earth;
worship the Lord in gladness;
come into His presence with shouts of joy.

Acknowledge that the Lord is God;
He made us and we are His,
His people, the flock He tends.

Enter His gates with praise,
His courts with acclamation.

Praise Him!
Bless His name!
For the Lord is good;
His steadfast love is eternal;
His faithfulness is for all generations.

The Bible’s Book of Psalms is a compilation of 150 hymns attributed to several ancient authors over a period of about a thousand years. Since earliest times it has formed a core component of Jewish and Christian liturgy. This passage is published in Easwaran’s spiritual anthologies, “God Makes the Rivers to Flow” and “Timeless Wisdom.” The audio recording is by Eknath Easwaran’s wife, Christine Easwaran.
