Call to Worship

Psalm 107:1-3 (ESV)

 

Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!  Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.

Jesus, I Come

 

Out of my bondage, sorrow and night,

Jesus, I come; Jesus I come.
Into Thy freedom, gladness and light,

Jesus, I come to Thee.


Out of my sickness into Thy health,

Out of my wanting and into Thy wealth,
Out of my sin and into Thyself,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

 

Out of my shameful failure and loss,

Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into the glorious gain of Thy cross,

Jesus, I come to Thee.


Out of earth’s sorrows into Thy balm,

Out of life’s storms and into Thy calm,
Out of distress into jubilant psalm,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

 

Out of unrest and arrogant pride,

Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into Thy blessed will to abide,

Jesus, I come to Thee.
Out of myself to dwell in Thy love,

out of despair into raptures above,
Upward forever on wings like a dove,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

 

Out of the fear and dread of the tomb,

Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into the joy and light of Thy home,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of the depths of ruin untold,

into the peace of Thy sheltering fold,
Ever Thy glorious face to behold,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Faith

 

The Apostles' Creed 

 

I believe in God the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

and born of the virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended into hell.

The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.

From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

Amen.

I Will Glory in My Redeemer

I will glory in my Redeemer

whose priceless blood has ransomed me.
Mine was the sin that drove the bitter nails

and hung Him on that judgment tree.


I will glory in my Redeemer

who crushed the power of sin and death.
My only Savior before the Holy Judge;

The Lamb who is my righteousness,
The Lamb who is my righteousness.

 

I will glory in my Redeemer;

my life He bought, my love He owns.
I have no longings for another;

I’m satisfied in Him alone.


I will glory in my Redeemer;

His faithfulness my standing place.
Though foes are mighty and rush upon me,

My feet are firm, held by His grace,
My feet are firm, held by His grace

 

I will glory in my Redeemer

who carries me on eagle’s wings.
He crowns my life with loving-kindness;

His triumph song I’ll ever sing.


I will glory in my Redeemer

who waits for me at gates of gold,
And when He calls me it will be paradise;

His face forever to behold,
His face forever to behold.

Worshiping God by Singing

May the Mind of Christ My Savior

May the mind of Christ my Savior

live in me from day to day, 

by his love and pow’r controlling

all I do and say. 

 

 May the Word of God dwell richly

in my heart from hour to hour, 

so that all may see I triumph

only through his pow’r.

 

 May the peace of God my Father

rule my life in everything, 

that I may be calm to comfort

sick and sorrowing.   

 

May the love of Jesus fill me

as the waters fill the sea; 

him exalting, self abasing,

this is victory.    

 

May his beauty rest upon me

as I seek the lost to win, 

and may they forget the channel,

seeing only him.
