Did you know that the psalms were intended to be sung? During the celebration of the Mass we sing both the psalm and the psalm responses. In doing so, we honor the Lord’s special relationship with the people of Israel, and we also incorporate our own relationship with Jesus since he surely sang the psalms.
Every day will I bless you,
and I will praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the LORD and highly to be praised;
his greatness is unsearchable.
Generation after generation praises your works
and proclaims your might.
They speak of the splendor of your glorious majesty
and tell of your wondrous works.
They discourse of the power of your terrible deeds
and declare your greatness.
They publish the fame of your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your justice.
Singing the psalms ties together the Old and New Testaments. So sing them!!!
