The Responsive Reading Of Psalm 89

P: I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever:
C: With my mouth I will proclaim Your faithfulness to all generations.

P: The Lord has made a covenant with His people; He has sworn to establish David’s Seed forever:
C: All the heavens shall praise Your wonders, O Lord – Your faithfulness in the congregation of the saints.

P: For who in heaven can be compared to the Lord? Who among the sons of the earth can be likened to the Lord?
C: O Lord God of hosts, who possesses either Your strength or Your faithfulness? You are to be revered by all who surround you.

P: The heavens are Yours, the earth and world also, for You created them.
C: Holiness and righteousness live before Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face.

P: Blessed is the people who know that joyful sound, who walk in the light of Your radiance.
C: In Your Name they shall rejoice all the day, and in Your righteousness they shall be exalted. For You are the glory of their strength.

P: For the Lord is our Fortress; the Holy One of Israel is our King;
C: For You have spoken to Your Holy One saying: “In You I have helped and exalted my people. For I have anointed & strengthened them. The enemy shall not overcome them, for My faithfulness and My mercy shall ever be with them; And in My Name shall their horn be exalted.”.

P:“Though their sins grieve Me, My love and My mercy will remain forever and My Covenant with them shall never fail: C: Though their earthly lives are fleeting and the power of the grave lies before them, their family line will be established forever, their throne as long as the heavens endure.” Praise be to the Lord forever and ever. Amen.

Hymn: “O Morning Star, How Fair And Bright”

1. O Morning Star, how fair and bright! You shine with God’s own truth and light, Aglow with grace and mercy!
Of Jacob’s race, King David’s son, Our Lord and Master, You have won Our hearts to serve You only!
Lowly, holy! Great and glorious, All victorious,
Rich in blessing! Rule and might o’er all possessing!

2. Come, heav’nly Bridegroom, Light divine, and deep within our hearts now shine; there light a flame undying!
In Your one body let us be As living branches of a tree, Your life our lives supplying.
Now though daily Earth’s deep sadness May perplex us
And distress us, Yet with heav’nly joy You bless us.

3. Lord, when You look on us in love, At once there falls from God above A ray of purest pleasure.
Your Word and spirit, flesh and blood Refresh our souls with heav’nly food. You are our dearest Treasure!
Let Your mercy Warm and cheer us! O draw near us!
For You teach us God’s own Love through You has reached us.
