Call to Worship

Leader: The mighty one, God the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.

People: Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.

Leader: Our God comes and does not keep silence, before him is a devouring fire, and a mighty tempest all around him.

People: He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people:

Leader:”Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”

All: The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge
