Commitment to Worship - (from Psalm 2) – David Parsipogu

 

Leader:  Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? 

People:  The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One.

Leader:  The One enthroned in heaven laughs, the LORD scoffs at them.  Then he rebukes them in his anger. 

People:  He terrifies them in his wrath saying, "I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.

Leader:  Therefore you kings be wise, be warned you rulers of the earth.

People:  Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry with you and you be destroyed in your way.
