We Come and Sing for Joy to You, LORD

We Come and Sing for Joy to You, LORD

Personalized Scripture Prayer: Psalm 95

We come and sing for joy to you, LORD; we shout aloud to you, the Rock of our salvation.

We come before you with thanksgiving and extol you with music and song.

For you, LORD, are the great God, the great King above all gods.

In your hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to you.

The sea is yours, for you made it, and your hands formed the dry land.

We come and bow down in worship, we kneel before you, LORD, our Maker; for you are our God and we are the people of your pasture, the flock under your care.

Today, if only we would hear your voice, we would not harden our hearts as we did at Meribah, as we did that day at Massah in the wilderness, where our ancestors tested you; they tried you, though they had seen what you did. For forty years you was angry with that generation; You said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways.’ So you declared on oath in your anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.'”
