Calls To Worship


Adapted from Isaiah 2:3-5 

Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, 

To the house of the God of Jacob. 

He will teach us his ways, 

So that we may walk in his paths. 

The law will go out from Zion, 

The word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 

God will judge between the nations 

And will settle disputes for many peoples

They will beat their swords in plowshares 

And their spears into pruning hooks. 

Nation will not take up sword against nation, 

Nor will they war any more. 

Come, house of Jacob, 

Let us walk in the light of the Lord. 

Austin D. Hill

Adapted from Psalm 36:5-6

Your steadfast love, O Lord,

Extends to the heavens,

Your faithfulness to the clouds.

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,

Your judgments are like the great deep;

You save all of creation, O Lord. So please help us to depend fully upon you.

Arise, shine; for your light has come! The glory of the Lord has risen on you. 

Jesus Christ is the light of the world. 

Nations will come to his light, and rulers will seek his radiance. 

Jesus Christ is the light of the world. 

He will judge the people with righteousness and defend the cause of the poor. 

Jesus Christ is the light of the world. 

The mystery of the ages is revealed; the eternal plane of God is known to all. 

Jesus Christ is the light of the world. 

Let us kneel down before him to give him honor, glory, and praise. 

Jesus Christ is the light of the world. 

Let us offer him all the treasures of our hearts and our lives. 

Jesus Christ is the light of the world.

Adapted From Psalm 50:1-6 (ESV)

Leader: “The mighty one, God the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting. 

People: Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.

Leader: Our God comes [and] does not keep silence, before him is a devouring fire, around him a mighty tempest.

People: He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people: 

Leader: ‘Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!’

People: The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge!” 

Leader: Let us worship the Lord!
