Calls To Worship


Psalm 19:7-11; 14 ESV

Leader: The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; 

People: The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; 

Leader: The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. 

People: More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. 

Leader: Let the words of [our] mouth[s] and the meditation of [our] heart[s] be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, [our] rock and [our] redeemer.

Adapted from Psalm 23

Leader: God, You are my shepherd, I shall not want.

People: You make me lie down in green pastures; You lead me beside still waters; You restore my soul. You lead me in right paths for Your name’s sake.

Leader: Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

People: You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Leader: Let us worship the Lord.

(Ps 23:1-3, 5-6 (ESV, pronouns changed for liturgical use), Ps 23:4 (NIV))

 Adapted from Psalm 34

Leader: Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed are those who take refuge in God.  

People: Fear the Lord, you God’s holy people, For those who fear God lack nothing.

Leader: The lions may grow weak and hungry, But those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

People: The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

All: Let us worship God!

Adapted from Psalm 107

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

    for his steadfast love endures forever.

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,

    those he redeemed from trouble

and gathered in from the lands,

    from the east and from the west,

    from the north and from the south.

Some were sick through their sinful ways,

    and because of their iniquities endured affliction;

they loathed any kind of food,

    and they drew near to the gates of death.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,

    and he saved them from their distress;

he sent out his word and healed them,

    and delivered them from destruction.

Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,

    for his wonderful works to humankind.

And let them offer thanksgiving sacrifices,

    and tell of his deeds with songs of joy.
