HYMN:  Praise the Lord!  God’s Glories Show (Psalm 150) [Llanfair]


INTROIT:  Endless Praise by Jan Sanborn

Praise God in His sanctuary, praise God in His mighty firmament!  Praise God for His love and mercy, praise God for His mighty deeds.  Praise God for His exceeding greatness, praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord with trumpet sound, strings and pipe. With lute and harp, sounding cymbals!  With tambourine and dance, praise ye the Lord!  From all that dwell below the skies let the Creator’s praise arise; let the Redeemer’s name be sung through every land, by every tongue.  Your lofty themes, ye mortals bring, in songs of praise divinely sing; the great salvation loud proclaim, and shout for joy the Savior’s name!  In every land begin the song!  To every land the strains belong. In cheerful sounds our voices raise, and fill the world with endless praise!  Praise the Lord!  Praise Him for His exceeding greatness!  Praise ye the Lord! [from Psalm 150, incorporating “From All that Dwell” by Isaac Watts]
