Sweet Surrender

A litany for worship inspired by Psalm 15

Oh, Sweet Surrender, inviting our companionship along the road
 of righteousness,

Hear the thankful hearts gathered in this tent of meeting.

You—Honor of the Humble and Restorer of Faithfulness,

Hear the affirmations that grow from our gratitude:

Pursue integrity, and speak the truth from your heart, all you who
desire the strength of days!

Harness your tongue and guard it from slanderous speech!

Stand by your word, even if it comes at a price!

Lend without interest and resist the insult of bribery.

Snatch our hearts from the temple of vengeance

And plant our feet on your holy hill of mercy!
