RESPONSIVE CALL TO WORSHIP (Psalm 81)
Sing aloud to God our strength; shout for joy to the God of Jacob.
The Lord our God brought us up out of the land of Egypt.
But the people did not listen to God's voice; we did not submit to God.
O that we would listen to God and walk in his ways!
The will God quickly subdue our enemies, and turn a hand against our foes.
God will feed us with the finest wheat, and with honey from the rock the lord will satisfy us.
Le us sing aloud to God our strength and shout for joy to the God of Jacob.
