Psalm 96

Opening Prayer

God’s Greeting


Now Thank We All Our God

Author: Martin Rinkart (1636)
Translator: Catherine Winkworth
Tune: Nun danket alle Gott
Psalter Hymnal (Gray) #454

Now thank we all our God
with heart and hands and voices,
who wondrous things has done,
in whom his world rejoices;
who from our mothers’ arms
has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love,
nd still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God
through all our life be near us,
with ever joyful hearts
and blessed peace to cheer us,
to keep us in his grace,
and guide us when perplexed,
and free us from all ills
of this world in the next.

All praise and thanks to God
the Father now be given,
the Son and Spirit blest,
who reign in highest heaven
the one eternal God,
whom heaven and earth adore;
for thus it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.

Christian Hearts in Love United

Psalter Hymnal (Gray) #513

Christian hearts in love united,
search to know God’s holy will.
Let his love, in us ignited,
more and more our spirits fill.
Christ the head, and we his members–
we reflect the light he is.
Christ the master, we disciples–
he is ours and we are his.

Grant, Lord, that with your direction
“Love each other” we comply.
Help us live in true affection,
your love to exemplify.
Let our mutual love be glowing
brightly so that all may view
that we, as on one stem growing,
living branches are in you.

Come, then, living church of Jesus,
covenant with him anew.
Unto him who conquered for us
may we pledge our service true.
May our lives reflect the brightness
of God’s love in Jesus shown.
To the world we then bear witness:
we belong to God alone.

God’s Blessing


To God Be the Glory

Author: Andraé Crouch (1971)

Lift Up Your Hearts #956

To God be the glory, to God be the glory,
to God be the glory for the things He has done:
With His blood He has saved me,
with His power He has raised me.
To God be the glory for the things He has done.
