CALL TO WORSHIP [from GREATER ATTENTION: LERW, YEAR D]
To the LORD you shall hold fast, and by his name you shall swear.
The LORD is our praise; he is our God, who has done
great and awesome things for us that our own eyes have seen.
Heaven and the heaven of heavens belong to the LORD our God,
the earth with all that is in it!
The LORD, the great God, is God of gods and Lord of lords.
Mighty and awesome, he is not partial and he takes no bribe.
Circumcise your heart, and do not be stubborn any longer,
for what does the LORD your God require of you?
Only to fear the LORD, to walk in all his ways, to love him,
to serve him with all our heart and soul, and to keep
his commandments and decrees for our own well-being.
