Call to Worship
Psalm 84:1-7

One: How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!

All: My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

One: Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God.

All: Happy are those who live in your house, ever singing your praise. Happy are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

One: As they go through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools.

All: They go from strength to strength; the God of gods will be seen in Zion.

Responsive Prayer
Psalm 84:8-12

One: O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob!

All: Behold our shield, O God; look on the face of your anointed.

One: For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.

All: I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than live in the tents of wickedness.

One: For the LORD God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor. No good thing does the LORD withhold from those who walk uprightly.

All: O LORD of hosts, happy is everyone who trusts in you.
