Call to Worship Litany: The Lord Reigns!

Here’s a responsive call to worship written by John Birch.  It is inspired by Psalm 97:1.

Call to Worship Litany
(inspired by Psalm 97:1)

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad
Let the distant shores rejoice

By your word all things were created 
each in it's allotted space and time. 
You breathed life through your Spirit 
and in the whisper of the wind we are reminded 
of your Spirit's continual presence.
The Lord reigns let the earth be glad
Let the distant shores rejoice

The whole of creation declares your glory, Lord. 
A symphony of sound and colour surround us 
if we will for a moment stand 
with eyes and ears attuned.
The Lord reigns let the earth be glad
Let the distant shores rejoice

The whole of humankind declares your glory, Lord. 
Each precious son or daughter a unit of love
in the currency of your family.
The Lord reigns let the earth be glad
Let the distant shores rejoice

Now in our worship we declare your glory, Lord.
Proclaim your Kingdom to the ends of the earth
your love to the highest mountain 
your forgiveness to the depths of the sea.

The Lord reigns let the earth be glad
Let the distant shores rejoice
