Call to Worship

Psalm 145:8-10(ESV)

 

The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.  The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.  All your works shall give thanks to you, O LORD, and all your saints shall bless you!

Thy Mercy, My God

 

Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song

The joy of my heart and the boast of my tongue

Thy free grace alone from the first to the last

Hath won my affections and bound my soul fast.

 

Without Thy sweet mercy I could not live here

Sin soon would reduce me to utter despair

But through Thy free goodness my spirits revive

And He that first made me still keeps me alive.

 

Thy mercy is more than a match for my heart,

Which wonders to feel its own hardness depart;

Dissolved by Thy goodness I fall to the ground

And weep to the praise of the mercy I’ve found.

 

Great Father of mercies, Thy goodness I own,

And the covenant love of Thy crucified Son;

All praise to the Spirit, Whose whisper divine

Seals mercy and pardon and righteousness mine!

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Sins                                                        

 

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Hope                                                    Isaiah 53:4-6(ESV)            

 

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.  But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned-- every one-- to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

When I See the Blood

 

Christ our Redeemer died on the cross.

Died for the sinner, paid all his due.

Sprinkle your soul with the blood of the Lamb,

and I’ll pass over you.

 

Chiefest of sinners, Jesus can save;

All He has promised, surely He’ll do;

Wash in the fountain where sinners can bathe,

and I’ll pass over you.

 

When I see the blood of my Holy One,

my wrath shall be quenched;

my judgments be through.

When I see the blood of my only Son,

Yes, I will pass over you.

 

Judgment is coming, all will be there.

Each one receiving justly his due.

Hide in the saving, sin-cleansing blood,

and I’ll pass over you.

 

When I see the blood of my Holy One,

my wrath shall be quenched;

my judgments be through.

When I see the blood of my only Son,

Yes, I will pass over you.

 

O great compassion! O boundless love!

Now crowned with power, Jesus is true;

Find peace and shelter under his blood,

and I’ll pass over you.

 

When I see the blood of my Holy One

my wrath shall be quenched;

my judgments be through. 

When I see the blood of my only Son

Yes, I will pass over you.

Man of Sorrows

 

Man of sorrows, Lamb of God
By His own betrayed
The sin of man and wrath of God
Has been on Jesus laid

 

Silent as He stood accused
Beaten, mocked, and scorned
Bowing to the Father's will
He took a crown of thorns

 

Oh, that rugged cross, my salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out, "Hallelujah"
"Praise and honor unto Thee"

 

Sent of heaven God's own Son
To purchase and redeem
And reconcile the very ones
Who nailed Him to that tree

 

Oh, that rugged cross, my salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out, "Hallelujah"
"Praise and honor unto Thee"

 

Now my debt is paid
It is paid in full
By the precious blood
That my Jesus spilled


Now the curse of sin
Has no hold on me
Whom the Son sets free
Oh, is free indeed

 

Now my debt is paid
It is paid in full
By the precious blood
That my Jesus spilled


Now the curse of sin
Has no hold on me
Whom the Son sets free
Oh, is free indeed

 

Oh, that rugged cross my salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out, "Hallelujah"
"Praise and honor unto Thee"

 

See the stone is rolled away
Behold the empty tomb
Hallelujah, God be praised
He's risen from the grave

 

Oh, that rugged cross my salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out, "Hallelujah"
"Praise and honor unto Thee"

"Praise and honor unto Thee"

Worshiping God by Hearing His Word

Genesis 1:26-27

26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.                             

Genesis 9:6

Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.

James 3:7

7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. 10 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.

Worshiping God by Celebrating the Lord's Supper

Mark 14:22-25

22 And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” 23 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. 24 And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. 25 Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”

Worshiping God by Singing

All for Jesus!

All for Jesus! All for Jesus!

All my being’s ransomed pow’rs,

all my thoughts and words and doings,

 all my days and all my hours.

 

Let my hands perform his bidding,

let my feet run in his ways;

let my eyes see Jesus only,

let my lips speak forth his praise.

 

World-lings prize their gems of beauty,

cling to gilded toys of dust,

boast of wealth and fame and pleasure;

only Jesus will I trust.

 

Since my eyes were fixed on Jesus,

I’ve lost sight of all beside;

so enchained my spirit’s vision,

looking at the Crucified.

 

O what wonder! How amazing!

Jesus, glorious King of kings,

deigns to call me his beloved,

lets me rest beneath his wings.
