Who shall ascend??

The earth is the LORD's and all that is in it,
the world, and those who live in it;
for he has founded it on the seas,
and established it on the rivers.
Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
Those who have clean hands and pure hearts,
who do not lift up their souls to what is false,
and do not swear deceitfully.
They will receive blessing from the LORD,
and vindication from the God of their salvation.
Such is the company of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.
But O Lord,
who of us has truly clean hands?
Who of us has a truly pure heart?
Who of us has not worshiped what turned out to be false?
Who of us has not swear or lied?
Only you, Lord Jesus!

You have received blessing for God Almighty.
God vindicated your sinless life 
and saved you from the dead.

And you, Lord Jesus,
share those blessings with us
share that vindication with us
share salvation with us!

Help us live out our salvation
with gratitude, joy, and service
sharing those same gifts
with others, especially young others.
