Opening Litany based on Psalm 46
Congregation: In Revelation there is a river whose streams bring life and joy to the city of God, the holy dwelling place of the Most High. God is within this Holy City, this dwelling place of God with us, and she will not fall.
Worship Leader: God brings help to us at the break of each new day and though nations may be in uproar and kingdoms may fall God is still with us and ruler of all.
Congregation: The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come one and all and see what the LORD has done in our lives and in the lives of all the people of the earth.
Worship Leader: The Lord brings wars to an end. The Lord breaks the bow and shatters the spear destroying all the instruments of war, and then says, “Be still, and know that I am God.”
Congregation: We will exalt the Lord our God among all the nations of the earth, for the LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our strength.
Worship Leader: Welcome to Worship at Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church.
