Time to sing and worship
Let’s make some noise1 Come on everyone,
Let’s sing it up to the LORD.
Make it loud. Make it happy.
Sing it to the Solid Rock who saved us.
2 Let’s go to him with a song and a thanks.
Sing it loud. Sing it happy.
Someone get the instruments.
3 The LORD isn’t just a great God.
He’s the greatest—King of all the gods.
4 He can run his fingers
Through the deepest dirt on earth.
Yet he also owns the mountains
From the gravel to the peaks.
5 He owns the sea.
Why not? He made it.
His hands created land.
Don’t get stubborn now6 Let’s worship now.
Let’s bow in spirit
To our LORD and Maker.
7 He’s our God.
We’re his people,
The sheep on his land,
Led by his hand.
If only you could hear your Shepherd’s voice:
8 “Don’t get stubborn and test me
Like your ancestors did
At Meribah Spring
And Massah in the badlands.
9 Your ancestors saw the miracles I did,
Yet they insisted I keep proving myself to them.
10 Those people disgusted me for 40 years.
They didn’t have any sense.
They couldn’t see the value
Of listening to the God who saved them.
11 I got fed up with them and told them
They’ll never set foot in the place of rest
I promised to give my people.”
On the exodus out of Egypt, the Hebrew ancestors of the Jews complained to Moses about needing water. Moses broke open a rock to reveal a spring. He gave the place two names: Massah, meaning “test,” and Meribah, meaning “complaint” (Exodus 17:7).
