Psalm 76

Leader: In Judah, God is known. His name is great in Israel. His abode has been established in Salem.

People: Sing praise to the Lord, who cuts off the spirit of princes and inspires fear in the kings of the earth.

Leader: Glorious are you, O Lord, more majestic than the everlasting mountains.

People: O Lord, you indeed are awesome! Who can stand before you when once your anger is roused?

Leader: From the heavens you uttered judgment. The earth feared and was still when God rose up to establish judgment, to save all the oppressed of the earth.

People: Make vows to the Lord your God, and perform them. Bring gifts to the one who is awesome.

Most Glorious God, the heavens declare Your glory, and we gather here to praise Your holy name. Angels bow before Your throne, and we bow our hearts before You in worship. You are awesome in Your might, and none of Your enemies can stand before You. We pledge our love and loyalty to You, Heavenly Father, and we commit ourselves to the study of Your Word that we might always live in ways that please You. Fill us once again with guiding Your Spirit, even as we pray in the name of Jesus Christ: “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. . .”
