Call to Worship
*Opening Hymn Praise to the Lord, the Almighty UMH 577
*Responsive Reading Psalm 149
Leader: Praise the Lord. Sing to the Lord a new song, His praise in the assembly of His faithful people.
All: Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Leader: Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with timbrel and harp.
All: For the Lord takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with victory.
Leader: Let His faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.
All: May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
Leader: To inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
All: To bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron,
Leader: To carry out the sentence written against them — this is the glory of all His faithful people. Praise the Lord.
