I come into your presence, O Lord, with thanksgiving, eager to make a joyful noise to the rock of my salvation and sing your praises. You are a great God and a great King above all gods. You hold in your hand the depths of the earth and the heights of the mountains. The sea is yours for you made it and your hands formed the dry land. I bow down and kneel in worship before the Lord, my God, my Maker. Indeed, you are our God and we are the people of your pasture. I belong to you and you belong to me. I have been justified by faith—I have peace with God and access to the gift of grace through my Lord Jesus Christ. So I rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. For your great love has been poured into my heart through your Holy Spirit. You demonstrated your great love for me in that while I was still a sinner, Christ died for me. So I rejoice in God through my Lord Jesus Christ, through whom I have received this wonderful gift of reconciliation (Psalm 95:1-7; Romans 5:1-2, 5, 8, 11).
