Project 4:4--Day One Hundred Twenty

Day One Hundred Twenty, Psalm 29, 33, 65-68

From today’s reading, Psalm 67 is my favorite, just because the beginning of it reminds me of Aaron’s blessing on the Israelites—the one which makes up they lyrics to a beautiful song that we sing sometimes entitled “The Lord Bless You and Keep You.”

May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine upon us,
that your ways may be known on earth,
your salvation among all nations.

May the peoples praise you, O God;
may all the peoples praise you.
May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you rule the peoples justly
and guide the nations of the earth.
May the peoples praise you, O God;
may all the peoples praise you.

Then the land will yield its harvest,
and God, our God, will bless us.
God will bless us,
and all the ends of the earth will fear him.
