For your personal reflection and edification on this Lord’s Day
Who may worship in your sanctuary, LORD?
Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right,
speaking the truth from sincere hearts.
Those who refuse to gossip
or harm their neighbors
or speak evil of their friends.
Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever.
You rule with a scepter of justice.
Psalm 75:1, 9-10
We thank you, O God!We give thanks because you are near.People everywhere tell of your wonderful deeds.As for me, I will always proclaim what God has done;I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.For God says, “I will break the strength of the wicked,but I will increase the power of the godly.”
Give thanks to the LORD and proclaim his greatness.
Let the whole world know what he has done.
Sing to him; yes, sing his praises.
Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds.
Exult in his holy name;
rejoice, you who worship the LORD.
Search for the LORD and for his strength;
continually seek him.
Remember the wonders he has performed,
his miracles, and the rulings he has given,
you children of his servant Abraham,
you descendants of Jacob, his chosen ones.
Praise the LORD!
Praise the name of the LORD!
Praise him, you who serve the LORD,
you who serve in the house of the LORD,
in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good;
celebrate his lovely name with music.
