Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, who stand by night in the house of the Lord! Lift up your hands to the holy place and bless the Lord! May the Lord bless you from Zion, he who made heaven and earth! (Psalm 134 ESV)
Hymn ELH 7:1-3 Praise to the Father
Praise to the Father, the glorious King of creation!
Swell the loud chorus, ye chosen of every nation!
O my soul, wake!
Harp, lute and psaltery take;
Sound forth thy true adoration.
Praise to the Son: for the cross that once shamefully bore Him,
Now, on the throne of His power let all creatures adore Him!
Man reigns on high!
Lo! all the hosts of the sky
Bow down and worship before Him!
Praise to the Spirit, whose strong, rushing wind, ever blowing,
Still through the world, wheresoever it wisheth, is going.
Darkness and death
Drink, from Thy quickening breath
Life, light, and joy overflowing.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the creation You made and have blessed me with. Jesus, My Savior, thank You for living and dying for me. O Holy Spirit, thank You for creating and nurturing my faith. Amen.
