Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!
2Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble.
The psalmist sings out the call for God’s redeemed people to come before Him with gratitude in their hearts and on their lips. Why?—Three reasons.
—Because His character is all goodness.
—Because His covenant love for the redeemed is steadfast and enduring.
—Because of His redemptive work to save them from many troubles.
CALL TO WORSHIP
Come before the Lord, our Redeemer with thankful hearts and joyful songs!
Give thanks that He is good, and has been good to His people. Give thanks for His constant love, which will never fail, nor turn away from those He has redeemed.
