Be Glad: A Call to Worship for the Kingdom of God (Isaiah 65:17-25)

Glory to God, Glory to God, Glory in the Highest…
To God be Glory forever, Alleluia, Amen! (sung)*

Be glad, and rejoice forever in what God is creating:
God is making a new heaven and a new earth.

Be glad, and rejoice forever in what God is doing:
God’s justice cascades forth like living water.

Be glad, and rejoice forever in how God loves us:
God pours God's self out to us in love through Jesus Christ.

Be glad, and rejoice forever in God’s promise for us:
We shall not labor in vain, nor shall we cry out in despair. 
Victory is ours in God who loves us!

Glory to God, Glory to God, Glory in the Highest…
To God be Glory forever, Alleluia, Amen!(sung)*
