Scripture of Praise Congregation
Leader: I praise you, O God, because you raised me up and kept my enemies from gloating over me. I cried to you for help, and you healed me.
People: Sing praises to the Lord, you faithful people; give thanks to God’s holy name.
Leader: Our God’s anger is but for a moment; God’s favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
People: You turned my mourning into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, so that my soul may praise you and not be silent.
ALL: O Lord, my God, I will give thanks to you forever.
