God Lifts

*Call to Worship
Please say responsively. R: right side; L: left side; A: all

Praise the Lord!
R: Praise God today and tomorrow!
L: Praise God morning and night!

Who could possibly compare to God?
R: God’s love is abundant!
L: God’s love is extravagant!
A: God’s love is unbounded!

God’s love never remains on high,
A: God never remains unconcerned and uninvolved.

Who could possibly compare?
A: No other can possibly compare to
       the One who comes down to us.

No one can compare to the One who
“lifts the poor from the dirt”
A: Or “raises up the needy from the garbage pile” upon which we have placed them.

God lifts the poor and needy!
R: God lifts the poor and needy!
L: God lifts the poor and needy!
A: God lifts the poor and needy!

God lifts the poor and needy to be among the leaders of God’s own.
God turns the world upside down!

Let us embrace the topsy turvy life of living as God dreams for us.
Praise the Lord who calls us to dream beyond ourselves.

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord! (loud)
Praise the Lord! (louder)
Praise the Lord! (loudest)

Amen.
