Psalm 147, Call to worship — Ana Gobledale, UK

Inspired by Psalm 147
Epiphany 5, Year B

Read responsively or with two voices, with enthusiasm!

There are two versions, one shorter and the other longer.

Inspired by the words of Psalm 147, we lift our voices in praise.

Shorter version:

Celebrate God’s grace!
How comforting it is to know God always accompanies us.
Approach God in awe!
How amazing it is to consider that God has created each of us and each star in the heavens.
Praise the living God!
How good it is to sing praises together.

Longer version:

Praise the Holy One!
How good it is to sing praises to our God.
For God is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.
God heals the broken-hearted.
God binds up their wounds.
God determines the number of the stars.
God gives to all of them their names.
Great is our God, and abundant in power.
Sing to God with thanksgiving.
Praise the Holy One!
