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.

No One Knows so be Ready – CRC Sunday Sermon

Mother’s Day

Pastoral Reading
Psalm 16

Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
    I have no good apart from you.”

As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
    in whom is all my delight.[b]

The sorrows of those who run after[c] another god shall multiply;
    their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
    or take their names on my lips.

The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
    you hold my lot.
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.

I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
    in the night also my heart instructs me.[d]
I have set the Lord always before me;
    because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being[e] rejoices;
    my flesh also dwells secure.
10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol,
    or let your holy one see corruption.[f]

11 You make known to me the path of life;
    in your presence there is fullness of joy;
    at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Opening Hymn
God is My Strong Salvation (Trinity #667)
