Psalm 46
Psalm 33

OfficiantO God, make speed to save us.
AllO Lord, make haste to help us.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
 
The following Psalms are read
 
Psalm 46
God is our refuge and strength, *
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved, *
though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea,
Though its waters roar and foam, *
though the mountains tremble at its surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, *
the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her; she will not be moved; *
God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations rage, the kingdoms fall; *
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The LORD of hosts is with us; *
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Come, behold the works of the LORD, *
what desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars to cease throughout the earth; *
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
and burns the chariots with fire.
“Be still, and know that I am God; *
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
The LORD of hosts is with us; *
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Psalm 33
Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! *
It befits the upright to praise him.
Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; *
make music to him on the harp of ten strings!
Sing to him a new song; *
play skillfully, with shouts of joy.
For the word of the LORD is right and true, *
and all his works are faithfulness.
He loves righteousness and justice; *
the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
By the word of the LORD the heavens were made; *
by the breath of his mouth their starry host.
He gathers up the waters of the sea as a heap; *
he puts the deeps into storehouses.
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.
The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; *
he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
The counsel of the LORD stands firm forever, *
the plans of his heart through all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, *
the people he has chosen as his own inheritance!
The LORD looks down from the heavens; *
he sees all the children of man;
From his dwelling place he looks upon *
all the inhabitants of the earth,
He who fashions the hearts of them all *
observes everything they do.
The king is not saved by the size of his army; *
a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
A horse is a false hope for salvation; *
despite all its strength it cannot save.
Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, *
on those whose hope is in his mercy,
To deliver their soul from death *
and to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waits for the LORD; *
he is our help and our shield.
For in him our heart shall rejoice, *
because we trust in his holy Name.
Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, *
even as we have our hope in you.

The Lessons

 
The Lessons for Thursday
He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you but to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Philippians 2:3-4

By this we know love, that Jesus Christ laid down his life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. But if anyone has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with action and in truth.
1 John 3:16-18
A brief silence is kept after the readings.
Please pause the service if you would like more time.
