Thanksgiving Litany: 1 Chronicles 16: 23-34

Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Share the news of his saving work every single day!
Declare God’s glory among the nations;
his wondrous works among all people.
For great is the Lord, and worthy of praise!
He is to be revered above all other gods.
For the gods of the nations are merely idols,
but it is God who created the heavens!
Greatness and grandeur surround him,
strength and beauty are in his dwelling.

O nations of the world, recognize the Lord!
Recognize that the Lord is glorious and strong.
Give to God the glory he deserves!
Bring your offering and come to worship him.
Bow down to the Lord in his holy splendor!
Tremble before him, all the earth!
For he set the world firmly in place; it won’t be shaken.

Let the heavens be glad! Let the earth rejoice!
Let the nations say, “The Lord rules!”
Let the sea and everything in it roar!
Let the fields and their crops burst forth in joy!
Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise before the Lord!
For he is coming to establish justice on earth!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
his faithful love endures forever.
