Gathering Song: Christians We Have Met to Worship

Christians We Have Met to Worship

Call To Worship – from Psalm 103

LEADER: Be wild, O my soul, for the Source of Wonder; let all my insides praise the Holy Name.
PEOPLE: Be wild, O my soul, for the Source of Wonder; don’t let me forget all your kindness and help.
LEADER: The One who forgives all my wrongs, who heals me from sickness, who rescues my life from the abyss ―
PEOPLE: who wraps me around with love and devotion, who satiates my mouth with delight, renewing my youth like an eagle’s.
LEADER: You make harmony, bringing justice to all the oppressed.
PEOPLE: You are compassionate, generous beyond limit, quieting anger, abounding in love.
LEADER: You do not requite us according to our errors, do not demand from us in proportion to our wrongs.
ALL: Just as a mother has compassion for her child, so do you have compassion for those who hold you in awe.
adapted from The Complete Psalms, Pamela Greenberg
