Worshiping God by Singing

 

O God Eternal, You Are My god

 

O God eternal, You are my God,

for You I long in body and in soul

As in a dry and waterless land,

I search, I thirst, I faint for You

 

For You are my life,

You are my portion my reward

You are my God,

You are my Prophet, my Priest, my King

My only hope for peace

 

On holy ground Your glory I saw,

Your steadfast love is better than life

I’ll bless Your name as long as I live

and lift my hands to You in prayer

 

For You are my life,

You are my portion my reward

You are my God,

You are my Prophet, my Priest, my King

My only hope for peace

 

You feed my soul as if with a feast,

I sing Your praise with jubilant lips

Upon my bed I call You to mind

and meditate on You at night

 

For You are my life,

You are my portion my reward

You are my God,

You are my Prophet, my Priest, my King

My only hope for peace

 

For You have been the help in my life,

You take and keep me under Your wing

I cling to You and find Your support,

O God, my joy, You are my God!

 

For You are my life,

You are my portion my reward

You are my God,

You are my Prophet, my Priest, my King

My only hope for peace

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Sins

 

  

Almighty God, we acknowledge and confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed; we have not loved you with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength; we have not loved our neighbor as ourselves. Forgive us for the wrong we have done, and the good we have left undone. Restore to us the joy of your salvation in Christ, and by your Spirit, work in us your holy will. Amen.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Hope             

Romans 5:1(ESV)

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Not What My Hands

 

Not what my hands have done can save my guilty soul;
not what my toiling flesh has borne can make my spirit whole.
Not what I feel or do can give me peace with God;
not all my prayers and sighs and tears can bear my awful load.

These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring
And I have come to hide beneath your wings
These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of your grace

And now I wear your righteousness. 

 

Thy work alone, oh Christ, can ease this weight of sin
Thy blood alone, oh Lamb of God, can give me peace within
Thy love to me, oh God, not mine, oh Lord, to thee
Can rid me of this dark unrest and set my spirit free

 

These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring
And I have come to hide beneath your wings
These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of your grace
And now I wear your righteousness

Thy grace alone, oh God, to me can pardon speak
Thy power alone, oh Lamb of God, can this sore bondage break
No other work save thine, no other blood will do
No strength but that which is divine can bear me safely through

 

These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring
And I have come to hide beneath your wings
These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of your grace
And now I wear your righteousness


I praise the God of grace; I trust his truth and might
He calls me his, I call him mine, My God, my Joy, my Light
My Lord has saved my life and freely pardon gives;
I love because he first loved me, I live because he lives.

Worshiping God by Singing

 

Oh, How Good It Is

Oh how good it is, when the family of God
Dwells together in spirit, in faith and unity;
Where the bonds of peace, of acceptance and love
Are the fruit of His presence, here among us.

 

So with one voice we'll sing to the Lord,
And with one heart we'll live out His word
Til the whole earth sees the Redeemer has come,
For He dwells in the presence of His people.

 

Oh how good it is, on this journey we share
To rejoice with the happy, and weep with those who mourn.
For the weak find strength, the afflicted find grace,
When we offer the blessing of belonging.

 

So with one voice we'll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we'll live out His word
Til the whole earth sees the Redeemer has come,
For He dwells in the presence of His people.

 

Oh how good it is, to embrace His command
To prefer one another, forgive as He forgives.
When we live as one, we all share in the love
Of the Son with the Father, and the Spirit.

 

So with one voice we'll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we'll live out His word
Til the whole earth sees the Redeemer has come,
For He dwells in the presence of His people.
