Psalm 98 (Greek numbering: Psalm 97) is one of the psalms in the biblical Book of Psalms. One of the Royal Psalms, Psalm 93-99, praising God as the King of His people.
It may be recited as a canticle in the Anglican liturgy of Evening Prayer according to the Book of Common Prayer as an alternative to the Magnificat, when it is referred to by its incipit as the Cantate Domino. It is not included as a canticle in Common Worship, but it does of course appear in the psalter.
Musical settings of Psalm 98 were composed by Loys Bourgeois, Heinrich Schütz, John Rutter, David Conte and Arvo Pärt.
