Psalm 100

Ok, so here is the next song, verbatim from Scripture. Who do you think will be the winner, Isaiah or David?

I have always loved this Psalm, and it is still teaching me. If you learn the straight forward statements of this Psalm, it will continue to teach you for many years as you contrast its truth with the false teachings of this world. The Psalm contains truths such as, "the Lord is good" and "We are His" and "It is He that hath made us and not we ourselves". It also teaches us how we should approach the Lord.
Question: What should you do when you enter into the presence of the Almighty God?

Answer: You should be singing like this Psalm teaches us, imagine that.

Colosians 3:16 says, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

How can we sing the Psalms, if we do not know the Psalms?

Now, that does not mean that we should all run out and learn Hebrew, but it would not hurt! Strive with the Lord, and He will provide you with more than the Psalms in Hebrew, and that is no small treasure. The Lord's provision for us is exceedingly abundant. Enjoy.

Here are the Lyrics:
Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD,
all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness:
come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the LORD he [is] God:
[it is] he [that] hath made us, and not we ourselves;
[we are] his people,
and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
[and] into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him,
[and] bless his name.

For the LORD [is] good;
his mercy [is] everlasting;
and his truth [endureth] to all
generations.
Note: Performed with the following chords in order: C, Am, F, G
on a soprano ukulele. Verses verbatim from the King James Version.

Can you guess why some words are in bold?

UPDATE: Here is a link some of the lyrics and chords I've been using ... Enjoy.

Is the bold for repeating words?
