Psalm 97

Psalm 97

Leader:  The Lord is king! Let the earth rejoice! Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

People: The heavens proclaim his righteousness; and all the peoples behold his glory.

Leader: All worshipers of images are put to shame, those who make their boast in worthless idols; all gods bow down before him.

People: For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth. You are exalted far above all gods.

Leader: The Lord loves those who hate evil. He guards the lives of his faithful . He rescues them from the hand of the wicked.

People: Light dawns for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!

Lord God, we rejoice in Your presence this day, for You are the Lord over all the earth. You reign as the Almighty King, and You rule with true justice over all people and nations. With infinite and steadfast love, You extend Your mercy toward all who will turn to You in faith and repentance. O Father, we praise You and honor You with thankful hearts, because Your only Son, our only Savior, Jesus Christ, forgives us and washes away all our sins. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit, so we can walk in Your ways as people of prayer, even as we pray: “Our Father. . .”
