The earth has its kings, but God is ruler off all.

Praise God above all, the giver of life!

The mountains may tremble, the oceans may roar,

but God’s presence is more powerful than the earth itself.

Come into Gods presence, for God is among us now.

O God, show us your glory; we seek your ways.

Come to the Rock, the God of life, for God is present now. 



*HYMN OF PRAISE #715 (UM hymnal) “Rejoice, The Lord Is King”

*LITANY “What, Then, Is Caesar’s, O people of God?”

What, then, is Caesar’s, O people of God? If you fly in the heavens,

God’s Spirit is there!   

If you sink in the deeps,

God’s Spirit is there!   

If you rest in the womb,

God’s Spirit is there!   

If you sit and then rise,

God’s hand is upon us!

If you think and then speak,

God’s mind knows our words!

What, then, is Caesar’s, O People of God? The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof!
