Calls To Worship
Adapted from Zephaniah 3:17
Leader: The prophet Zephaniah says: “The Lord, your God, is in your midst, He is mighty and will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will renew you in His love; He will exult over you with singing.”
People: Let it be known in all nations, God is our strength, God is our song and God is our salvation.
Leader: So, let us praise God and rejoice with God in song.
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.

Come into God’s presence with thanksgiving in your hearts.
We will enter his gates with praise.
He has made us glad.
His love endures forever.
We join with all of creation,
To sing a new song. Rejoice, oh my soul, again I say, “Rejoice!”
Let us worship God together.

Wonderful Counselor, open our ears
So we may hear your song
God is with us, God is near
Mighty God, open our eyes
So we may see you at work
For goodness, truth, and justice
Everlasting Father, open our hearts
So we may release our worry,
Our loneliness, and our striving
Prince of Peace, open our hands
So we may take yours and each other’s
And walk together the path of grace
