Call to Worship
We will sing to the Lord as long as we live.
We will sing to God while we have being.
God sends forth the Spirit, and all is made new.
May the glory of the Lord endure for ever!
O God, who by the mystery of this day’s festival sanctifies your Church in every race and nation:
Shed abroad throughout the world the gift of your Holy Spirit, that the work begun at the first preaching of the Gospel may now also be extended to believing hearts;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord who with you and the same Spirit lives and reigns, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever.
