Praise the church in worship
Lift your hands in praise
Road trip song1Listen up,
All of you who serve the LORD,
Every night in the LORD’s house.
Praise the LORD.
2Lift your hands in the sanctuary
And praise the LORD.
3May the LORD in Jerusalem,
Creator of heaven and earth,
Bless your life with goodness.
The subtitle wasn’t part of the original psalm. Psalms 120-134 are called songs of ascent, possibly because Jewish pilgrims sang these songs while traveling up into the Judean hills to celebrate a Jewish holiday in Jerusalem.
Literally, “Zion,” a term of endearment for Jerusalem, much like “Big Apple” is for New York City.
