Shout for joy to God, all the earth;
 sing the glory of his name;
give to him glorious praise!
 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you.
 All the earth worships you
and sings praises to you;
they sing praises to your name.” Selah
 Come and see what God has done:
he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.
 He turned the sea into dry land;
they passed through the river on foot.
There did we rejoice in him,
 who rules by his might forever,
whose eyes keep watch on the nations—
let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
 Bless our God, O peoples;
let the sound of his praise be heard,
 who has kept our soul among the living
and has not let our feet slip.
 For you, O God, have tested us;
you have tried us as silver is tried.
 You brought us into the net;
you laid a crushing burden on our backs;
 you let men ride over our heads;
we went through fire and through water;
yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.
 I will come into your house with burnt offerings;
I will perform my vows to you,
 that which my lips uttered
and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
 I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals,
with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams;
I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah
 Come and hear, all you who fear God,
and I will tell what he has done for my soul.
 I cried to him with my mouth,
and high praise was on my tongue.
 If I had cherished iniquity in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened.
 But truly God has listened;
he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
 Blessed be God,
because he has not rejected my prayer
or removed his steadfast love from me! (ESV)
Call to Worship
 In you, O LORD, do I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame!
 In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
incline your ear to me, and save me!
 Be to me a rock of refuge,
to which I may continually come;
you have given the command to save me,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the grasp of the unjust and cruel man.
 For you, O Lord, are my hope,
my trust, O LORD, from my youth.
 Upon you I have leaned from before my birth;
you are he who took me from my mother’s womb.
My praise is continually of you. (ESV)
Prayer of Repentance
O Lord, You who are all-merciful, take away my sins from me and enkindle within me the fire of Your Holy Spirit. Take away this heart of stone from me and give me a heart of flesh and blood, a heart to love and adore You, a heart which may delight in You, love You, and please You, for Christ’s sake. Amen.
May you trust the LORD with all your heart. May you be like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, may the LORD surround you from this time forth and forevermore. Amen!
