Minister: Lift up your hearts!
Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord!
O praise the Lord, all you nations,
You Gentiles and tribes to the end of the earth.
Praise Him, all you people,
Canadians and Kurds,
Americans and Armenians,
Brazilians and Englishmen,
Chinese and Russians,
Poles and Japanese,
Praise Him all you people.
And why? His merciful kindness is great toward us,
And always has been.
He loves the nations of men,
And always has.
The truth of the Lord endures forever,
And this truth includes His love for men.
The truth of the Lord does not surrender to lies,
But overcomes them,
And the nations, all of them,
Will stream to the Lord and worship Him.
Praise the Lord for it.
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.
