Responsive Reading
Psalm 111 (Trinity #826)

Praise the Lord
I will extol the Lord with all my heart
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord; they

are pondered by all who delight in them.
Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
He has caused his wonders to be remembered;

the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
He provides food for those who fear
him; he remembers his covenant forever.
He has shown his people the power of

his works, giving them the lands of other nations.
The works of his hands are faithful
and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.
They are steadfast for ever and ever,

done in faithfulness and uprightness.
He provided redemption for his
people; he ordained his covenant
forever – holy and awesome is his name.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of

wisdom; all who follow his precepts
have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.

Parable of the 10 Virgins – CRC Sunday Sermon

May 17, 2020

Pastoral Reading
Psalm 96:1-8

Opening Hymn
Psalm 96:9-13 (Psalter #96B)

In beautiful and holy robes bring worship to the Lord
All earth, before Him stand in awe; Proclaim, “The Lord is King!”
Controlled by Him, the world stands firm; His judgments justice bring.

Let heav’ns be glad and earth rejoice in vast expanse untold
Let seas speak out with endless roar, let fields and all they hold
Their glory give; let trees and woods with rustling boughs give praise.

Let all prepare to greet the Lord, because He coming is.
He surely comes to judge the earth. And righteousness is His.
He’ll nations judge with faithfulness, the world with justice bless.
