Minister: Lift up your hearts!
Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord!
In times of trouble,
May God listen to you!
May the name of Jacob’s God defend you.
May He send out help from His sanctuary,
And strengthen you from Zion’s hill.
May He remember your offerings;
May He accept your ascension gifts.
Consider His faithfulness.
May He grant just what you asked from the heart;
And fulfill all Your counsel to Him.
In that day, we will rejoice,
In that day, we will rejoice in your salvation,
In that day we will set up banners,
Marking each petition granted.
Now I know God saves His anointed;
He hears him from His holy place,
With saving strength in His right hand.
Some trust in missiles, and some in fleets,
But we remember the Lord our God.
They have fallen, but we have not.
We are risen, and stand upright.
Save us, God,
My Your king hear us when we call.
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.
