Reflection: There is a Sunday School song, "All God's Critters Got a Place in the Choir" which goes through many animals, big and small, and how they sing praises. Kids love to sing and act it out like...animals. It's definitely a lively and loud song.
Psalm 98 could be the song, "All God's Creation (has) Got a Place in the Choir" as it tells of the seas, rivers and mountains praising the Lord.
If Sunday School critters get a bit loud, well, imagine seas roaring, floods clapping their hands and hills singing!? It would be like this:
PRAISE THE LORD!
