Sacrifice of praise


 

Lent is almost upon us, but not quite yet, so I’ve opted for a call to worship featuring sacrifice with a twist: a sacrifice of praise for our matchless God.


Call to Worship

based on Psalm 113

King of all the earth,
Creator of the universe,
Holy Triune God,
From everlasting to everlasting, you are Lord.

We will give thanks to you, O Lord, with our whole hearts,
for your glory is above the heavens;
From the rising of the sun to it setting,
we will praise the name of the Lord!

You raise the poor from the dust and lift the needy from the ash heap,
transforming them with glory and honor;
From the rising of the sun to it setting,
we will praise the name of the Lord!

You bring fruitfulness from barrenness
and give homes to the solitary;
From the rising of the sun to it setting,
we will praise the name of the Lord!

Who is like our God, the One
who looks down from the heights on the heavens on the earth?
From the rising of the sun to it setting,
we will praise the name of the Lord!

This is our God, the Holy One.
Come before him with thanksgiving
and offer him the sacrifice of praise.
