We Prepare to Worship God

The Gathering Praise                   “Come, Sound His Praise Abroad”

Text: Isaac Watts, 1719; Tune: Festal Song, S.M., William H. Walter, 1894

1          Come, sound his praise abroad,

And hymns of glory sing:

Jehovah is the sovereign God,

The universal King.

 

2          He formed the deeps unknown,

He gave the seas their bound;

The wat’ry worlds are all his own,

And all the solid ground.

 

3          Come, worship at his throne;

Come, bow before the Lord:

We are his works, and not our own;

He formed us by his word.

O Lord, rebuke me not in Your wrath, and chasten me not in Your burning anger. For Your arrows have sunk deep into me, and Your hand has pressed down on me. There is no soundness in my flesh because of Your indignation; there is no health in my bones because of my sin. For my iniquities are gone over my head; as a heavy burden they weigh too much for me. Lord, all my desire is before You; and my sighing is not hidden from You. For I confess my iniquity; I am full of anxiety because of my sin. Do not forsake me, O Lord; O my God, do not be far from me! Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation!                                                                                                     Psalm 38:1-4, 9, 18, 21-22
