- CALL TO WORSHIP
The Psalmist declares, “Bless the Lord, O my soul.”
God of many Names, you are fathomless;
You are wrapped in light like a garment; you stretch out the sky like a tent.
You make the clouds your chariot; you ride on the wings of the wind.
You make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers. Psalm 104:1-4
And as You speak, a hundred billion galaxies are born;
In the vapor of Your breath, the planets form.
If the stars were made to worship, so will I.
We can see Your heart in everything You’ve made;
Every burning star, a signal fire of grace.
If creation sings Your praises, so will I! Hillsong United
With all creation, let us sing praise to our God while we have being.
