Calls to Worship: Scriptures

Psalm 66:1-4

Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; Sing the glory of His name; Make His praise glorious. Say to God, "How awesome are Thy works! Because of the greatness of Thy power Thine enemies will give feigned obedience to Thee. "All the earth will worship Thee, and will sing praises to Thee; They will sing praises to Thy name."

Psalm 95:1-3

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

Psalm 96: Praise him, all creation

Leader: Sing a new song to the Lord.
Sing to the Lord all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless his name.

All: Proclaim his salvation day by day,
Tell his glory among the nations,

Leader: Tell his marvels to every people.The Lord himself made the heavens,
In his presence are splendour and majesty,
In his sanctuary power and beauty.

All: Ascribe to the Lord, families of the people,
Ascribe to the Lord beauty and power,
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due to his name.

Leader: Bring an offering, bear it before him,
Worship the Lord in the splendour of holiness,
Tremble before him, all the earth!

All: Let the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad,
Let the sea thunder and all that it holds,
Let the fields exult and all that is in them,
Let all the trees of the forest cry out for joy.

Leader: At the presence of the Lord, for he comes,
He comes to rule the earth,
To judge the world with justice
And the nations with his truth.

Psalm 96:8-13

Ascribe to the Lord the glory of His name; bring an offering, and come into His courts. Worship the Lord in holy attire; Tremble before Him, all the earth. Say among the nations, "The Lord reigns; indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved; He will judge the peoples with equity." Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; Let the sea roar, and all it contains; let the field exult, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord, for He is coming; for He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness, and the peoples in His faithfulness.

Psalm 100

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord Himself is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name. For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting, and His faithfulness to all generations.

Matthew 11:28-29

Come unto me, all you that labor an are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest.
