Litany: Psalm 16

Here is a litany inspired by Psalm 16. It could be used as a call to worship, as words of assurance following a prayer of confession, or as a sending litany at the close of worship. It was written by Rachel Hackenberg and posted on her website (see link below).

Litany from Psalm 16

You are LORD; we have no good apart from you.
You delight in us, by the mystery of your grace.
Though life is broken in bits and pieces,
you are our piece and our portion.
Though life pours itself out in rage and tragedy,
you are our water and our cup.

Let us bless the LORD,
who walks with us as we wander.
Let us praise the LORD,
who whispers a lullaby when the nights grow long.

Follow God faithfully, no matter the chaos;
For God does not lose track of us.
God alone has power over hell.
God alone shows us the path of life;
God is our resurrection and our renewal.
In God’s presence there is fullness of joy,
the multiplication of peace,
and satisfaction forevermore.
