Stumbling Stone (Lowertown St. Paul)

Psalm 118 1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;    his love endures forever. 2 Let Israel say:    “His love endures forever.”3 Let the house of Aaron say:    “His love endures forever.”4 Let those who fear the Lord say:    “His love endures forever.” 5 When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord;    he brought me into a spacious place.6 The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.    What can mere mortals do to me?7 The Lord is with me; he is my helper.    I look in triumph on my enemies.…

God of My Righteousness (Lowertown St. Paul)

Psalm 4 1 Answer me when I call to you,    my righteous God.Give me relief from my distress;    have mercy on me and hear my prayer. 2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame?    How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?3 Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;    the Lord hears when I call to him. 4 Tremble and do not sin;    when you are on your beds,    search your hearts and be silent.5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous    and…

The Lord Said to My Lord (Lowertown St. Paul)

A Song for All Nations (Lowertown St. Paul)

Psalm 96 1 Sing to the Lord a new song;    sing to the Lord, all the earth.2 Sing to the Lord, praise his name;    proclaim his salvation day after day.3 Declare his glory among the nations,    his marvelous deeds among all peoples. 4 For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;    he is to be feared above all gods.5 For all the gods of the nations are idols,    but the Lord made the heavens.6 Splendor and majesty are before him;    strength and glory are in his sanctuary. 7 Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations,    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.8 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;    bring…

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…

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…

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…
