Call To Worship

One: With what shall I come before the Lord and bow myself before God on high?

Many: Shall I come before God with burnt-offerings, with calves a year old?

One: Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with tens of thousands of rivers of oil?

Many: Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

One: God has told you, O Mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you

Many: but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

*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.
