Join Kathy at Bermuda Onion to learn even more new words.
I finished reading Recalling the Hope of Glory this week. Both of today’s words are from there. A very informative and uplifting book!
Definition—any song of praise, joy, or triumph
Use—“What John, or perhaps the early church, has done is combine Daniel 7:13, Zechariah 12:10, and Matthew 24:30 in a paean of praise.”
Definition—a short verse, usually from the Psalms, said or sung by the officiant, after which the congregation recites a response
Use—“Then the scroll was brought forth to be opened by the one who reveals the whole plan of God (Rev 5:1-7), more prayers were offered with praise psalms interspersed (5:8-10), followed by the congregational response with appropriate versicles concerning the worthiness of Christ (5:12).
