Calls To Worship

Salvation

Adapted from Psalm 22:25-31

From you comes my praise in the great congregation;

my vows I will pay before those who fear him.

The poor shall eat and be satisfied;

those who seek him shall praise the Lord.

May your hearts live forever!

All the ends of the earth shall remember

and turn to the Lord;

and all the families of the nations

shall worship before him.

For dominion belongs to the Lord,

and he rules over the nations.

 To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down;

before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,

and I shall live for him.

Posterity will serve him;

future generations will be told about the Lord,

and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn,

saying that he has done it.

Hassell Bullock

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;

let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before him with thanksgiving

and extol him with music and song.

Sing to the LORD a new song;

Sing to the LORD, praise his name;

proclaim his salvation day after day.


Adapted From Psalm 98:1-6

Sing a new song to the Lord,

who has worked wonders,

whose right hand and holy arm have brought salvation.

The Lord has made known salvation;

has shown justice to the nations;

has remembered truth and love for the house of Israel.

All the ends of the earth have seen

the salvation of our God.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth,

sing out your joy.

Sing psalms to the Lord with the harp,

with the sound of music.

With trumpets and the sound of the horn

acclaim the King, the Lord.

Pastor: Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look at the earth beneath; for the heavens vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment, and they who dwell in it will die in like manner; but my salvation will be forever, and my righteousness will never be dismayed.

Almighty God, we pray for your blessing

on the church in this place.

Here may the faithful find salvation,

and the careless be awakened.

Here may the doubting find faith,

and the anxious be encouraged.

Here may the tempted find help,

and the sorrowful find comfort.

Here may the weary find rest,

and the strong be renewed.

Here may the aged find consolation

and the young be inspired;

through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Who will save us from the ways of death? 

Jesus Christ our Lord; thanks be to God!

But joy comes with the morning.
