Calls To Worship

The Morning

Adapted from Isaiah 60; Ephesians 5

Wake up! Get out of bed! 

Feel the sunlight on your face!

God’s bright glory has risen for you.

But the earth is dark. Everywhere we look there is selfishness sin, greed, death, destruction.

You don’t have to be part of that. Why waste your lives on the things you “must” do in the darkness where no one will see? See how attractive those fake activities look in the light of Christ!

But God rises on you; his sunrise glory breaks over you.

We know that God is our saviour, our redeemer, our champion!

We’ll no longer need the sun during the day and the moon at night: God will be our light.

Christ has made it happen; his bright light makes the way clear.

Jacob Traeger

Adapted from Psalm 90 

Relent, Lord! How long will it be? 

Have compassion on your servants. 

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,  

That we may sing for joy and be glad in all our days. 

May your deeds be shown to your servants, 

Your splendor to their children.  

Let us worship God and enjoy his presence!
