Texts

Come and Let Us Worship God


Come and let us worship God,
turn to serve the living Lord,
move from where we are misled,
do as ancient prophets said.
Refrain
Oh, our ever loving God,
we, the creatures of your Word,
come to make our home in you,
knowing that your Word is true.
Sing! A New Creation

evident and everywhere.

Let us hear our Maker’s voice,
and let Christ inform each choice.
Sister, brother, women, men:
let us turn to God again.
