Third Sunday in Lent
Psalm 95, paraphrased by Pastor William
Listen up! It is time to tune into the Lord;
Let us make a joyful noise!
Let us double time march as we gather;
raising the roof with our songs.
Why? Because the Lord is our King;
the best there ever was!
God has the whole world in God’s hands;
made it, owns it, loves it.
Drop everything, change your plans;
for it’s time to do something different.
God is in control, not us;
it’s time we take God seriously.
For God is our King;
we are the King’s children;
the apple of God’s eye.
Let today be the day you hear God:
Release your independence!
Stop your complaining!
Don’t be like your desert ancestors;
they tested my patience;
they wanted things their way.
They couldn’t keep their mind on my way.
Finally, I had enough!
They will not get what they want,
they will not get the easy life they seek.
