A Call to Worship (based on Psalm 19)
See how glorious God is!
The evidence is everywhere, all around us,
proclaimed night and day by heavens and earth.
Hear how gracious God is!
Reviving souls, rejoicing hearts, enlightening eyes,
Sharing God’s breathtaking wisdom.
Taste what is best and sweetest!
Let us seek God, and God’s goodness.
Let us worship God!
The heavens are telling the glory of God;Psalm 19
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours forth speech,
and night to night declares knowledge
There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;
yet their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy,
and like a strong man runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them;
and nothing is hid from its heat.
The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul;
the decrees of the LORD are sure, making wise the simple;
the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is clear, enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever;
the ordinances of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
But who can detect their errors? Clear me from hidden faults.
Keep back your servant also from the insolent; do not let them have dominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
