Call to Worship

Opening Prayer

*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.

All: Amen.
