CALL TO WORSHIP
I will bless the Lord at all times;
We will bless our God at all times.
I will praise the Holy One with my voice.
Let us exalt God’s name together.
We are seeking,
And God will answer us.
We cry out for help,
And God will deliver us.
God will deliver us from our fears.
God will hear us and save us.
So come now, let us worship together.
Let us taste and see that our God is good.
SCRIPTURE READING – Psalm 34:1-8
Of David, when he feigned madness before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.
1 I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
3 O magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
5 Look to him, and be radiant;
so your faces shall never be ashamed.
6 This poor soul cried, and was heard by the Lord,
and was saved from every trouble.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him, and deliver them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good;
happy are those who take refuge in him.
