Psalm 149 (Trinity Hymnal #840)
Praise the Lord
Sing to the Lord a new song, his
praise in the assembly of the saints.
Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the 
people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with 
dancing and make music to him with
tambourine and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with salvation.
Let the saints rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.
May the praise of God be in their 
mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
to inflict vengeance on the nations and
punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters, their
nobles with shackles of iron,
to carry out the sentence written
against them
This is the glory of all his saints.
Praise the Lord.

Offering Hymn
Chosen as His Children (HMA #22)

V1 Chosen by the Father’s mercy set apart to serve his son
Sanctified by his own spirit praise the holy three in one
Saved by resurrection power shielded in his faithful love
now no enemy can tarnish my inheritance above

V2 Led by wisdom into suffering, Grieved by many trials below
Yet rejoicing in his purpose that my faith has fully clothed
Granted faith for overcoming, Filled with love for Christ unseen
Even angels cannot fathom what salvation God will bring

V3 Built on Christ a sure foundation we are free from guilt and shame
He is fitting us together as a house to praise his name
We are chosen as God’s people, Called from darkness into light
O what mercy now entreats us to proclaim his glories bright

I’m born again
I’m God’s own chosen child of mercy!  Born again!
What love and grace
Father keep me walking worthy till I look upon your face
Till I look upon your face
