call to worship – based on Psalm 139

submitted by Michael Morgan, organist, Central Presbyterian Church, Atlanta, Georgia; seminary musician, Columbia Theological Seminary; and author of the Psalter for Christian Worship

One: O Lord, you have searched us and known us.
All: Before we move or think or speak, you know our actions and our words.
One: You breathed life into us, and shaped us in human form to serve your purpose and sing your praise.
All: We praise you for the gifts of substance and spirit, of acceptance and expectancy, of lineage and legacy.
One: How wonderful are your thoughts, O God!
All: How vast is the expanse of your grace and love!
One: Praise the Lord!
All: The Lord’s name be praised!
