O praise the Lord, and sing to the Lord a new song:
O praise him in the assembly of the faithful.

– Psalm 149.1

Goulburn Cathedral Choir Prayer

Let us pray
God of creativity and beauty, we thank you for our choir;
for the gifts of music and friendship,
and for the opportunity to serve you in this Cathedral church.
Lord Jesus, our teacher and guide, be among us
as we prepare tonight to lead your people in worship of you.
Spirit of wisdom and truth, help us to embody your wisdom and compassion
not only in our music but also in our lives.
May the music we make lift up all who hear it and reflect your great love for us.
We ask this grace through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Gathering before the Service
(Praying together)
Bless, O Lord, us your servants,
who minister in your temple.
Grant that what we sing with our lips,
we may believe in our hearts,
and what we believe in our hearts,
we may show forth in our lives.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
