We pause and remember that it is our God Who has called us to life
and Who continually breathes life into us and invites us to a holy and
intimate relationship with Him. He is never far from us.
Blessed are You, O Lord our God, for You are the Keeper of the Book
Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands; serve the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful song.
Know that the LORD is God, he made us, his we are; his people, the flock he tends.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, his courts with praise;
Give thanks to him; bless his name, for he is good: the LORD, whose kindness endures forever, and his faithfulness, to all generations.
