The Psalm is a great way to celebrate the month dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus.

January is a month in the Catholic Church that is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus. While there are many prayers and litanies to recite, an additional way to honor Jesus’ Holy Name is to recite Psalm 96.

Here is an except from this Psalm that can be used as a prayer and meditation on God’s goodness to us.

Sing to the Lord a new song;sing to the Lord, all the earth.Sing to the Lord, bless his name;proclaim his salvation day after day.Tell his glory among the nations;among all peoples, his marvelous deeds.For great is the Lord and highly to be praised,to be feared above all gods.For the gods of the nations are idols,but the Lord made the heavens.Splendor and power go before him;power and grandeur are in his holy place.Give to the Lord, you families of nations,give to the Lord glory and might;give to the Lord the glory due his name!Bring gifts and enter his courts;bow down to the Lord, splendid in holiness.Tremble before him, all the earth;declare among the nations: The Lord is king.The world will surely stand fast, never to be shaken.He rules the peoples with fairness.Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice.
