Daniel 4:1-37; 2 Peter 1:1-21; Psalm 119:97-112; Proverbs 28:17-18
“Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
His divine power has given us everything we need
for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who
called us by his own glory and goodness.”
2 Peter 1:1-3
Voices raised to You we offer; Tune them God, for songs of praise.
Hearts and hands we bring in tribute for Your gifts
through all our days.
Triune God, to You we sing!
All creation joins to praise You; Earth and sky
Your works display.
Art and music, gifts You lend us,
We return to You today.
Alleluia, Alleluia! God, Creator,
Source of life!
Christ, the son of Love incarnate, Touching Earth
with heaven’s grace,
For Your living, suff’ring, dying,
For your rising, hear our praise!
Alleluia, Alleluia! Christ, Redeemer,
Lord of life!
Spirit, flaming through Creation, Kindle faith
within each heart.
Lift our voices high in chorus; through our hands
Your love impart.
Alleluia, alleluia! Spirit, Helper,
breath of life!
How can any praise we offer measure all
the thanks we owe?
Take our hearts and hands and voices–
Gifts of love we can bestow.
Alleluia, alleluia! Triune God,
to You we sing!
