Litany: Sing a New Song!

Here’s a scripture collage (or responsive call to worship) I put together for a service this coming Sunday.  It draws on verses from the Psalms.

Litany: Sing a New Song!
(based on verses from Psalms 30, 89, 92, 95, 96, and 100)

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before God with thanksgiving—
with music and song!

It is good to sing praise to You,
and make music to Your name, O Most High;
to proclaim Your love in the morning
and Your faithfulness at night.
For You make us glad by Your deeds, O God;
we sing for joy at the work of Your hands.

Worship God with gladness;
come into God’s presence with joyful songs—
with thanksgiving and praise!
For God has taken away our garments of sadness,
and clothed us with joy,
that we might sing praise, and not be silent!

We will sing of God’s love forever!
Young and old will hear, and rejoice.
For Your unfailing love lasts forever;
Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens above.

Sing new songs to God!  Praise God’s name!
Each day proclaim the good news of God’s salvation.
Tell everyone about the amazing things God has done.

May Your ways be known throughout the earth, O God;
Your saving power among people everywhere.
May the nations praise You and sing for joy,
for You govern them with justice,
and guide the actions of the whole world.
