Minister: Lift up your hearts!
Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord!
Let me right now forever know
Your Word is firm on high,
Your faithfulness to all my line.
You have established all the earth,
And it abides as You have said.
The earth obeys as You decree,
A faithful servant here.
Unless Your law delighted me,
I would have perished miserably,
All my afflictions drowning me.
I have resolved to not forget
Your precepts and Your law.
For through them You have brought me life,
I am Your child, please save me now,
For I have always chased Your law.
The wicked scheme to take me out,
But I will keep Your law.
The narrow-minded only trip,
The legalist just closes doors,
But Your law-road is great and wide.
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.
