Call to Worship: Amen! Amen! Amen!

Here’s a beautiful call to worship (originally a hymn) from an anonymous author in the early life of the church.  It has echoes of Psalm 148 and Psalm 150.

Call to Worship

May none of God’s wonderful works keep silence,
night or morning.

Bright stars,
high mountains,
the depths of the seas,
sources of rushing rivers;
may all these break into song
as we sing to Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

May all the angels in the heavens reply
Amen!  Amen!  Amen!

Power, praise, honor, eternal glory to God,
the only giver of grace.

Amen!  Amen!  Amen!

~ anonymous Christian author, from sometime during the 3rd to 6th century.
