Psalms 98* The glory of the Redeemer. (1-3) The joy of the Redeemer.(4-9)1-3 A song of praise for redeeming love is a new song, amystery hidden from ages and generations. Converts sing a newsong, very different from what they had sung. If the grace ofGod put a new heart into our breasts, it will put a new songinto our mouths. Let this new song be sung to the praise of God,in consideration of the wonders he has wrought. The Redeemer hasovercome all difficulties in the way of our redemption, and wasnot discouraged by the services or sufferings appointed him. Letus praise him for the discoveries made to the world of the workof redemption; his salvation and his righteousness fulfillingthe prophecies and promises of the Old Testament. In pursuanceof this design, God raised up his Son Jesus to be not only aLight to lighten the Gentiles, but the glory of his peopleIsrael. Surely it behoves us to inquire whether his holy armhath gotten the victory in our hearts, over the power of Satan,unbelief, and sin? If this be our happy case, we shall exchangeall light songs of vanity for songs of joy and thanksgiving; ourlives will celebrate the Redeemer's praise. 4-9 Let all the children of men rejoice in the setting up thekingdom of Christ, for all may benefit by it. The differentorders of rational creatures in the universe, seem to bedescribed in figurative language in the reign of the greatMessiah. The kingdom of Christ will be a blessing to the wholecreation. We expect his second coming to begin his gloriousreign. Then shall heaven and earth rejoice, and the joy of theredeemed shall be full. But sin and its dreadful effects willnot be utterly done away, till the Lord come to judge the worldin righteousness. Seeing then that we look for such things, letus give diligence that we may be found of him in peace, withoutspot, and blameless
