A Thanksgiving Meditation

Psalm 100:1–5  (ID: 2992)

Psalm 100 is unique in part because of its title, “A Psalm for Giving Thanks.” As the only song in the Psalter with this designation, this psalm helps to recalibrate our thinking of how God’s children are to express their gratitude toward Him. Alistair Begg unpacks the what, how, where, and why of thanksgiving, encouraging us not to miss the opportunity to be in God’s presence and to give Him the praise He deserves.

His Steadfast Love Endures Forever

A Psalm for giving thanks.

1Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

2Serve the Lord with gladness!

Come into his presence with singing!

3Know that the Lord, he is God!

It is he who made us, and we are his;1

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name!

5For the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations.
