Divine Call for Obedience

R. I am the Lord your God: hear my voice.

An unfamiliar speech I hear:
I relieved his shoulder of the burden;
his hands were freed from the basket.
In distress you called, and I rescued you.

R. I am the Lord your God: hear my voice.

Unseen, I answered you in thunder;
I tested you at the waters of Meribah.
Hear, my people, and I will admonish you;
O Israel, will you not hear me?

R. I am the Lord your God: hear my voice.

There shall be no strange god among you
nor shall you worship any alien god.
I, the LORD, am your God
who led you forth from the land of Egypt.

R. I am the Lord your God: hear my voice.

If only my people would hear me,
and Israel walk in my ways,
I would feed them with the best of wheat,
and with honey from the rock I would fill them.

R. I am the Lord your God: hear my voice.
