Call To Worship

One: When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
 we were like those who dream.

Many: Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
 and our tongue with shouts of joy;

One: Then it was said among the nations,
 ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’

Many: The Lord has done great things for us,
 and we rejoiced.

One: Restore our fortunes, O Lord,
 like the watercourses in the Negeb.

Many: May those who sow in tears
 reap with shouts of joy.

One: Those who go out weeping,
 bearing the seed for sowing,

Many: Shall come home with shouts of joy,
 carrying their sheaves.

*Morning Prayer

*Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
