Psalm 104

Leader:  Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor and majesty.

People: 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.

Leader: You cause the grass to grow for the cattle, and plants for people to use, to bring forth food from the earth.

People: You made the moon to mark the seasons. The sun knows its time for setting. You make darkness, and it is night.

Leader:  People go out to their work and to their labor until the evening.

People: O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you made them all. The earth is full of your creatures.

Leader: When you send forth your Spirit, they are created.

People: May the glory of the Lord endure forever. I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praise to my God while I have being.

Father God, You created all things. You created a beautiful world for us to enjoy; a world designed to meet our physical needs. Then, when we sinned and dishonored You, You sent Your only Son to meet our spiritual needs. All that we truly enjoy comes from Your hand. Therefore, with thankful hearts, we pray: “Our Father. . .”

Psalm 100

Leader: Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.

People: Worship the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Leader: Know that the Lord is God.

People: It is he that made us, and we are his. We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Leader: Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.

People: For the Lord is good. His steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Father in heaven, on this Resurrection Sunday, we praise You for giving us the assurance of life after death by the resurrection of Your Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from the dead. We also praise Jesus today. Because of His faithful obedience to You, an obedience that perfectly fulfilled Your law, He became worthy to die in our place. Lord Jesus, we thank You for dying on the cross so our sins could be justly forgiven. Father, we thank You for our faith in You and in Jesus; faith that You have inspired within our hearts by Your grace. Now, fill us once again with Your Holy Spirit, that we might live in a worthy manner and demonstrate Your love to others; fill us even as we pray: “Our Father. . .”
