Call to Worship (from Psalm 30 – see over)

Sing praise to the LORD, O you, his faithful ones,
AND GIVE THANKS TO HIS HOLY NAME
For his anger is but for a moment,
HIS FAVOUR IS FOR A LIFETIME.
Weeping may linger for the night,
BUT JOY COMES WITH THE MORNING.
Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me.
O LORD, BE MY HELPER.
My soul will praise you and not be silent
O LORD, MY GOD, I WILL GIVE THANKS TO YOU FOR EVER!
