Call to Worship

Psalm 148:1-13 (ESV)

 

Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise him in the heights!  Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his hosts!  Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars!  Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!  Let them praise the name of the LORD! For he commanded and they were created.  And he established them forever and ever; he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.  Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all deeps, fire and hail, snow and mist, stormy wind fulfilling his word!  Mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars!  Beasts and all livestock, creeping things and flying birds!   Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth!  Young men and maidens together, old men and children!  Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his majesty is above earth and heaven.

 

Worshiping God by Singing

 

All Creatures of Our God and King

 

All creatures of our God and King,

lift up your voice and with us sing

alleluia, alleluia!

Thou burning sun with golden beam,

thou silver moon with softer gleam, 

O praise him, O praise him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

 

And all ye men of tender heart,

forgiving others, take your part

O sing ye, alleluia!

Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,

praise God and on him cast your care, 

O praise him, O praise him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

 

Let all things their Creator bless,

and worship him in humbleness,

O praise him, alleluia!  

Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,

and praise the Spirit, three in one, 

O praise him, O praise him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

God Be Merciful(Psalm 51)

God, be merciful to me; on Thy grace I rest my plea

Plenteous in compassion Thou, blot out my transgressions now;

Wash me, make me pure within, cleanse, O cleanse me from my sin!

 

My transgressions I confess; grief and guilt my soul oppress.

I have sinned against Thy grace and provoked Thee to Thy face

I confess Thy judgment just, speechless, I Thy mercy trust

 

I am evil, born in sin, Thou desirest truth within

Thou alone my Savior art, teach Thy wisdom to my heart;

Make me pure, Thy grace bestow, wash me whiter than the snow

 

Broken, humbled to the dust by Thy wrath and judgment just,

Let my contrite heart rejoice and in gladness hear Thy voice

From my sins O hide Thy face, blot them out in boundless grace!

 

Gracious God, my heart renew, make my spirit right and true

Cast me not away from Thee, let Thy Spirit dwell in me;

Thy salvation’s joy impart, steadfast make my willing heart

 

Sinners then shall learn from me, and return, O God, to Thee

Savior all my guilt remove and my tongue shall sing Thy love

Touch my silent lips, O Lord, and my mouth shall praise accord!

Worshiping God by Celebrating the Lord's Supper

 

1 Corinthians 11:23-32

 

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”  In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”  For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.  Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord.  Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.  For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.  That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died.  But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged.  But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world.

Come Away From Rush and Hurry

 Come away from rush and hurry to the stillness of God's peace;

From our vain ambition's worry, come to Christ and find release.

Come away from noise and clamor, life's demands and frenzied pace;

Come to join the people gathered here to seek and find God's face.

 

In the pastures of God's goodness we lie down to rest our soul.

From the waters of His mercy we drink deeply, are made whole.

At the table of His presence all His saints are richly fed.

with the oil of His anointing into service we are led.

 

 Come, then, children, with your burdens –

life's confusions, fears, and pain.

Leave them at the cross of Jesus; take instead His kingdom's reign.

Bring your thirsts, for He will quench them; He alone will satisfy.

All our longings find attainment when to self we gladly die.
