Canticle – Praised Be the God of Israel

Tune (Palmetto) and harmony for a new canticle by Rev. George van Popta:  “Praised Be the God of Israel” – A doxology.

The five books of the Book of Psalms all close with a doxology. This song is one extended doxology made from the five. Stanzas 1 and 12 are similar but have a significant difference. Stanza 1 calls forth praise from Israel while stanza 12 calls forth praise from all nations. To represent the post-Pentecost singing of the church today, stanza 12 employs the well-known hymnic phrase “Soli Deo Gloria.”
