All you sheltered by the Most High, who live in almighty God’s shadow,
say to the Lord ‘My refuge, my stronghold, my God in whom I trust. 
He will call to me . . . .

Psalm 94:  Listen to the voice of God, harden not your hearts.

Come and sing with joy to God!  Hail the rock who saves us!
Come before him giving thanks,  praise the God who made us.
Listen to the voice of God.  Harden not your hearts.

 Come, adore on bended knee, praise the God who made us!
Praise the shepherd of our flock, praise the hand that leads us.
Listen to the voice of God.  Harden not your hearts.

“Do not put me to the test, doubting like your fathers
In the desert long ago, when they tried my patience!”
Listen to the voice of God.  Harden not your hearts.
