Calls To Worship

The Pit

Adapted from Psalm 40 

I waited patiently for the Lord. 

He turned to me and heard my cry. 

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire. 

He set my feet on a rock and gave my feet a firm place to stand. 

He put a new song in my mouth, 

A hymn of praise to our God. 

Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.  

Let us worship his name. 

Austin D. Hill

Adapted from Psalm 84: 1, 2, 4, 5

Leader: How lovely is your dwelling place,

O Lord Almighty!

People: My soul yearns, even faints,

for the courts of the Lord;

My heart and flesh cry out

for the living God.

Leader: Blessed are those who dwell in your house

They are ever praising you.

People: Blessed are those whose strength is in you,

Who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

Bud Thoreen
