Psalm 96

Beauty of Holiness Call to Worship

Come, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!
Holiness present in the solid strength
of the earth beneath us.
Holiness present in the silent power
of the sun’s rays beaming through space.
Holiness present in our own breath
that is a gift from God.
Holiness present in the mystery
of the Spirit that joins us as a church.
God of creation,
open us to the beauty in and around us
in this hour of worship.
