Psalm 100
A Psalm of Thanksgiving

What's Come to Pass
So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” ​Luke 2:15

Psalm 97 finalist in poetry contest
The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the distant shores be glad. Clouds and darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are His throne’s foundation. Fire goes before Him and consumes His foes on every side. Psalm 97:1-3

Psalm 93 finalist in poetry contest
The LORD reigns! He is robed in majesty; the LORD has clothed and armed Himself with strength. The world indeed is firmly established; it cannot be moved. Your throne was established long ago; You are from all eternity. Psalm 93:1-2

Psalm 88 second in poetry contest
O LORD, the God of my salvation, day and night I cry out before You. May my prayer come before You; incline Your ear to my cry. For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to Sheol. I am counted among those descending to the Pit. Ps 88:1-4

Psalm 84
For better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. Psalm 84:10

Psalm 73
This one is somewhat special to me because I wrote a version of this way back in my early teens. It was interesting to see how far I had come as a writer in the last 45 years or so. "Truly God is good to Israel, to those whose hearts are pure." Ps 73:1

Psalm 68
This is my poetic take on Psalm 68.

Psalm 51
For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba.
