Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him! For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. (Psalm 33:8-9 ESV)
Hymn ELH 31:1,5 This Day at Thy Creating Word
This day at Thy creating Word
First o’er the earth the light was poured:
O Lord, this day upon us shine
And fill our souls with light divine.
All praise to God the Father be,
All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
Whom, with the Spirit, we adore
Forever and forevermore.
Heavenly Father, through Your powerful Word You created all that exists. Through that same Word, forgive my sins and strengthen my faith in Christ alone as my Savior. In His name I pray. Amen.
