Trust {responsive reading}

A few weeks ago, our church hosted a worship night, and the songs and meditations for the night revolved around the theme of trust. In addition to leading the worship, I wrote a responsive reading simply titled, Trust.

God, you are our refuge and our strength,
We trust in your steadfast love.
You are our savior and our song.
Our hearts rejoice in your salvation.

It is better to take refuge in you than trust in people.
The fear of man is a dangerous trap.
It is better to take refuge in you than trust in politicians and celebrities.
When we trust in you, we are safe.

Though the earth gives way and the mountains crumble into the sea…
We will pour out our hearts before you.
Though a mighty army surrounds us and all hell breaks loose…
We will sing and praise you with music.
Though we walk through the darkest valley…
We will put our trust in you.

Blessed are those who trust in you, who make you their hope and confidence.
We will trust him always and not be afraid.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water.
We will trust him always and not be afraid.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought.
We will trust him always and not be afraid.
Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
We will trust him always and not be afraid.

Let all who trust in you depend not on our own understanding.
Let us trust you with all our hearts.
