Christ the King

Call to Worship – Psalm 93

One: Blessed be God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit ☩ Many: And blessed be God’s Kingdom, now and forever. One: The Lord is King; he has put on splendid apparel; the Lord has put on his apparel and girded himself with strength. Many: He has made the whole world so sure that it cannot be moved; One: Ever since the world began, your throne has been established; you are from everlasting. Many: The waters have lifted up, O Lord, the waters have lifted up their voice; the waters have lifted up their pounding waves.

Many: Your testimonies are very sure, and holiness adorns your house, O Lord, for ever and for evermore One: Come, let us worship
