CALL TO WORSHIP
Minister

I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord, our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

People
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand.  I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

Minister
Because of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek thy good.

People
Those that be planted in the house of the Lord, shall flourish in the courts of our God.

Minister
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house, Lord. I have loved thy habitation the place where 
thy honor dwelleth.

People
For the Lord is in Holy temple, let all the earth keep silence before Him.

Minister
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my Redeemer.

All
O sing unto the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things.  Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth sing praises!

 

 

DECALOGUE
Minister

And God spake all these words saying:  I am the Lord thy God who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  Thou shall have no other gods before me.

People
Lord have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law.

Minister

Thou shalt not make unto thyself any graven image, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth below, or in the water under the earth:  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:  for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;  and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

People
Lord have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law.

Minister
Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy.  Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God:  in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter,  thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:  for in six days the Lord hath made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested on the seventh day and hallowed it.

                                    Nearer to Thee!
