Minister: Lift up your hearts!
Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord!
O come, let sing before the Lord;
Let us offer raucous praise
To the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come into His presence with thanks,
And sing boisterous psalms to Him.
For He is a great God,
And greater in majesty than all the other gods.
His hands are beneath the deepest mines;
The strength of mountain ranges belongs to Him.
The ocean is His, because He made it,
And He with His hands formed all the dry land.
So let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For He is our God, and we are His flock,
Dwelling in His pastures.
If you hear His voice calling to you,
Do not harden your heart,
The way we did in the provocation,
The way we did in the wilderness,
The way we heeded the temptation.
When our fathers provoked Him, and saw His response.
Forty years we wandered under the grief of God,
He said we were a people that veered off in their heart,
And did not know His ways.
And this is why He said, in His wrath,
That our fathers would not enter rest.
And so, gracious Father, we worship You now through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end, amen.
