Intergenerational Litany: Psalm 146

Here’s an intergenerational setting of Psalm 146 from Carolyn Brown’s Worshiping with Children website.  The parts in bold print may be read by all.

Intergenerational Litany: Psalm 146

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, my soul!

I will praise him as long as I live;
I will sing to my God all my life.

Don’t put your trust in human leaders;
no human being can save you.
When they die, they return to the dust;
on that day all their plans come to an end.

The Lord created heaven, earth, and sea, 
and all that is in them.

The Lord keeps every promise;

The Lord judges in favor of the oppressed

The Lord gives food to the hungry.

The Lord sets prisoners free

The Lord gives sight to the blind.

The Lord lifts those who have fallen;

The Lord loves righteous people.

The Lord protects the strangers who live in our land;

The Lord helps widows and orphans, 
but takes the wicked to their ruin.

The Lord is king forever.  
Your God, O Zion, will reign for all time.

Praise the Lord!
