Call to Worship Litany: Psalm 147


Here’s a call to worship based on Psalm 147, written by Rev. Donald Jansma.

(based on Psalm 147)

Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving.
Make music upon the harp.
How good it is to celebrate God's presence
and sing praise throughout each day!
How good it is to sing praise and give honor to our God!

Our God rebuilds the people of earth.
The wandering ones are gathered together,
the brokenhearted are healed,
the hungry are fed,
the prisoners are freed,
the blind are given sight, the lonely are befriended.
How good it is to sing praise and give honor to our God!

All of nature sings aloud God's goodness—
clouds, rain, grass, creatures great and small.
Our God creates and sustains our world
with his ever-growing, never-ending love.
How good it is to sing praise and give honor to our God!

Grace and peace be yours in abundance
through the knowledge of God and of Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

— Rev. Donald Jansma, in Service of Thanksgiving
