Sing to the Lord a new song
I sing aloud to You, Lord God, my strength; I make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob. I raise a song and strike the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the lute. You have put a new song in my mouth—praise to my God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in You, Lord.
I can be strong and of good courage … not afraid, nor dismayed, for the Lord my God is with me wherever I go. The joy of the Lord is my strength.
Lord God, I know the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now my salvation is nearer than when I first believed. Therefore let me cast off the works of darkness and … put on the armor of light. Let me walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But may I put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
Lord, You are the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow—and of You I can always sing. Help me find joy and courage as I sing of Your goodness.
