Call to Worship – Psalm 66

One: Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth. Sing  glory to God.
All: God, how awesome are your deeds!
One: All the earth worships you; we sing praises.
All: Come and see what God has done: God is awesome. We rejoice in God.
One: Bless God, O peoples, let the sound of praise be heard.
All: We went through fire and through water; yet you Lord have brought us to a spacious place.
One: Come and hear, all you who are in awe, and I will tell what God has done.
All: I cried aloud, and God was praised.
One: Truly God listens; God gives compassion and attention to our prayers.
All: Blessed be God. Our Lord will always give steadfast love. Praise the Lord!
