Leader: Teach us your ways O Lord

Children: Help us not to have secrets from you

All: We will praise you with all our hearts

Leader: Come, let us praise the name of the Lord

Children: God is bigger that the worst we can imagine

All: The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
Slow to anger, full of love and faithfulness.

Leader: Come, let us worship the Creator

Children: God sends the rain so that everything grows,

All: The rivers of God never run dry,
And storage lakes of the Lord are never empty.

Leader: You, O Lord, bring blessing to us,

Children: You make sure we have more than we need,

All: Wherever your footsteps touch the earth,
A rich harvest is gathered.
Let us shout for joy and sing together.

If you are a worship leader using these calls to worship, I'd love to know! Just for July, 2011, could you post a comment, or drop me an email and let me know where in the world you are, what church you worship with, and how many children and adults you usually have in your congregation?
E.g. I am using these at St Stephens Presbyterian church in Timaru New Zealand. We have anywhere from 8 to 18 children and 50 -70 adults on a Sunday morning.

Leader: Come, let us sing the Lord’s praise
Children: Why? Sometimes it feels like God has forgotten us.
All: How long, O Lord, will you hide your face?
Leader: Come, let us remember God’s faithfulness,
Children: That’s right. God has answered our prayer.

So come, let us sing the Lord’s praise together.
