Call to Worship (Psalm 23)

(based on Psalm 23)

One:     We rejoice in the One who leads us beside still waters,

All:       and gives us refreshment of soul.

One:     Christ our Shepherd shows us the way we should go,

All:       so that the name of God will be glorified.

One:     Though all manner of evil befall us, we will not be afraid,

All:       for the Great Shepherd of our souls is with us.

One:     We are never away from the love and mercy of the Lord,

All:       and we shall be with him for ever and ever.  Amen!
