Call to worship

The Lord is our Shepherd;
we shall not want.
Come to green pastures
where God restores our souls.
Come, everyone who suffers, all who fear death,
God will comfort us.
See, the table is set, even in the midst of our enemies.
God is our host and anoints us with oil.  Our cups overflow.
Surely goodness and mercy are with us every day,
and God will welcome and provide for us forever.
