Call to Worship

Psalm 86:8-13 (ESV)

There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours.  All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name.  For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.  Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.  I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.  For great is your steadfast love toward me; you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

God Our Maker

(listen here)

God our Maker, God Creator, our Sustainer, Sovereign One;
God our Father, our Deliverer, God our victory hath won!
 
  Justified our guilt is gone; sanctify us, Holy One.
We speak Your truths, O Three in One.  Our mission will remain: 
To glorify and hail Thy Name!
 
  Christ our Brother, Mediator, Christ beloved Cornerstone;
With Thy blood hath bought redemption through Thy sacrifice alone.
 
Justified our guilt is gone; sanctify us, Holy One.
We speak Your truths, O Three in One.  Our mission will remain: 
To glorify and hail Thy Name!
 
  Holy Spirit, we beseech Thee, move amongst Thine own we pray!
Change our hearts and minds completely, show Thy power in us today!
 
  Justified our guilt is gone; sanctify us, Holy One.
We speak Your truths, O Three in One.  Our mission will remain: 
To glorify and hail Thy Name!

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Faith

John 3:16-21 (ESV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.  And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.  For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.  But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.

In Christ Alone

(listen here)

In Christ alone my hope is found,

He is my light, my strength, my song;

This Cornerstone, this solid ground,

firm through the fiercest drought and storm.

What heights of love, what depths of peace,

when fears are stilled, when strivings cease.

My Comforter, my All in all,

here in the love of Christ, I stand.

 

In Christ alone, who took on flesh,

fullness of God in helpless babe! 

This gift of love and righteousness,

scorned by the ones He came to save.

Till on the cross as Jesus died,

the wrath of God was satisfied.

For every sin on Him was laid;

here in the death of Christ I live.

 

There in the ground His body lay,

Light of the world, by darkness slain;

Then bursting forth in glorious day,

up from the grave He rose again!

And as He stands in victory,

sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,

For I am His and He is mine,

bought with the precious blood of Christ.

 

No guilt in life, no fear in death,

this is the pow'r of Christ in me.

From life's first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny.

No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man

can ever pluck me from His hand.

'Til He returns or calls me home,

here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.

Speak, O Lord

(listen here)

Speak, O Lord, as we come to You

to receive the food of Your holy word

Take Your truth, plant it deep in us,

shape and fashion us in Your likeness

That the light of Christ might be seen today

in our acts of love and our deeds of faith

Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us

all Your purposes for Your glory

 

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,

holy reverence, true humility

Test our thoughts and our attitudes

in the radiance of Your purity

Cause our faith to rise, cause our eyes to see

Your majestic love and authority

Words of power that can never fail,

let their truth prevail over unbelief

 

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds,

help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us

Truths unchanged from the dawn of time

that will echo down through eternity

And by grace we'll stand on Your promises,

and by faith we'll walk as You walk with us

Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built,

and the earth is filled with Your glory

We Come, O Christ, to You

(listen here)

We come, O Christ, to you, true Son of God and man,
By whom all things consist, in whom all life began;
in you alone we live and move, and have our being in your love.

 

You are the Way to God, your blood our ransom paid;
In you we face our Judge and Maker unafraid.
Before the throne absolved we stand, your love has met your law demand.

 

You are the living Truth!  All wisdom dwells in you,
The Source of every skill, the one eternal TRUE!
O great I AM!  In you we rest, sure answer to our every quest.

 

You only are true Life, to know you is to live
The more abundant life that earth can never give:
O risen Lord!  We live in you: in us each day your life renew!

 

We worship you, Lord Christ, our Savior and our King,
To you our youth and strength adoringly we bring:
so fill our hearts, that all may view your life in us, and turn to you.
