How Can I Sing? (Lowertown St. Paul)

Psalms 137:1-6 1 By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept    when we remembered Zion.2 There on the poplars    we hung our harps,3 for there our captors asked us for songs,    our tormentors demanded songs of joy;    they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!” 4 How can we sing the songs of the Lord    while in a foreign land?5 If I forget you, Jerusalem,    may my right hand forget its skill.6 May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth    if I do not remember you,if I do…

It is Good to be near God (Columbia Heights)

Psalm 73 1 Surely God is good to Israel,    to those who are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;    I had nearly lost my foothold.3 For I envied the arrogant    when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4 They have no struggles;    their bodies are healthy and strong.5 They are free from common human burdens;    they are not plagued by human ills.6 Therefore pride is their necklace;    they clothe themselves with violence.7 From their callous hearts comes iniquity;    their evil imaginations have no limits.8 They scoff, and speak with malice;    with arrogance they…

God Speaks! (Downtown Minneapolis)

Psalm 19 The heavens declare the glory of God;    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.2 Day after day they pour forth speech;    night after night they reveal knowledge.3 They have no speech, they use no words;    no sound is heard from them.4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,    their words to the ends of the world.In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.5     It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.6 It…

Put your Hope in God (Columbia Heights)

Psalm 42-43 1 As the deer pants for streams of water,    so my soul pants for you, my God.2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.    When can I go and meet with God?3 My tears have been my food    day and night,while people say to me all day long,    “Where is your God?”4 These things I remember    as I pour out my soul:how I used to go to the house of God    under the protection of the Mighty One[dwith shouts of joy and praise    among the festive throng.…

Our God is In The Heavens (Lowertown St. Paul)

Psalm 115 1 Not to us, Lord, not to us    but to your name be the glory,    because of your love and faithfulness. 2 Why do the nations say,    “Where is their God?”3 Our God is in heaven;    he does whatever pleases him.4 But their idols are silver and gold,    made by human hands.5 They have mouths, but cannot speak,    eyes, but cannot see.6 They have ears, but cannot hear,    noses, but cannot smell.7 They have hands, but cannot feel,    feet, but cannot walk,    nor can they utter a sound with their throats.8 Those who make them will…

How Majestic is Your Name! (Downtown Minneapolis)

Psalm 8 1 Lord, our Lord,    how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory    in the heavens.2 Through the praise of children and infants    you have established a stronghold against your enemies,    to silence the foe and the avenger.3 When I consider your heavens,    the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars,    which you have set in place,4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,    human beings that you care for them? 5 You have made them a little lower than the angels    and crowned them…

The LORD & His Anointed (Downtown Minneapolis)

Psalms 1 & 2 Psalm 1 1 Blessed is the one    who does not walk in step with the wickedor stand in the way that sinners take    or sit in the company of mockers,2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,    and who meditates on his law day and night.3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,    which yields its fruit in seasonand whose leaf does not wither—    whatever they do prospers. 4 Not so the wicked!    They are like chaff    that the wind blows away.5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,    nor sinners…

Out of the Depths (Lowertown St. Paul)

Psalm 130 1 Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;2     Lord, hear my voice.Let your ears be attentive    to my cry for mercy. 3 If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,    Lord, who could stand?4 But with you there is forgiveness,    so that we can, with reverence, serve you. 5 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,    and in his word I put my hope.6 I wait for the Lord    more than watchmen wait for the morning,    more than watchmen wait for the morning. 7 Israel, put your hope in the Lord,    for with the Lord is unfailing love    and with…

Trees Planted by Living Water (Columbia Heights)

Psalm 1 1 Blessed is the one    who does not walk in step with the wickedor stand in the way that sinners take    or sit in the company of mockers,2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,    and who meditates on his law day and night.3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,    which yields its fruit in seasonand whose leaf does not wither—    whatever they do prospers. 4 Not so the wicked!    They are like chaff    that the wind blows away.5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,    nor sinners in the assembly of the…
