Call to Worship

Philippians 2:5b-11 (ESV)

Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.  And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.  Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Jesus!

(listen here)

The King of all creation set aside His crown
A servant to the Father's love, descended from His throne above
Author of salvation, Giver of new life
Crucified to pay for sin; our righteousness is in the name of
 
Jesus, every heart and tongue confess Your name above all names
All things of this earth belong to You, forever you will reign
 
God of resurrection, Conqueror of death
Ruler over everything, the Lord of lords and King of kings is
 
Jesus, every heart and tongue confess Your name above all names
All things of this earth belong to You, forever you will reign
 
Highly exalted is the name of Jesus Christ
Heaven and earth declare all praise to Jesus Christ
Highly exalted is the name of Jesus Christ
Heaven and earth declare all praise to 
 
Jesus, every heart and tongue confess Your name above all names
All things of this earth belong to You, forever you will reign

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Faith

Heidelberg Catechism, Q&A 45

How does Christ’s resurrection benefit us?
First, by his resurrection he has overcome death, so that he might make us share in the righteousness he won for us by his death.
Second, by his power we too are already now resurrected to a new life.
Third, Christ’s resurrection is a guarantee of our glorious resurrection.

Christ is Risen, He is Risen Indeed

(listen here)

How can it be, the One who died,
Has born our sin through sacrifice
To conquer every sting of death?
Sing, sing hallelujah.


For joy awakes as dawning light
When Christ's disciples lift their eyes.
Alive He stands, their Friend and King;
Christ, Christ He is risen.


Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!
Oh, sing hallelujah.
Join the chorus, sing with the redeemed;
Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!


Where doubt and darkness once had been,
They saw Him and their hearts believed.
But blessed are those who have not seen,
Yet, sing hallelujah.


Once bound by fear now bold in faith,
They preached the truth and power of grace.
And pouring out their lives they gained
Life, life everlasting.


Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!
Oh, sing hallelujah.
Join the chorus, sing with the redeemed;
Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!
 
The power that raised Him from the grave
Now works in us to powerfully save.
He frees our hearts to live His grace;
Go tell of His goodness.

Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!
Oh, sing hallelujah.
Join the chorus, sing with the redeemed;
Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!

Behold Our God

(listen here)

Who has held the oceans in His hands?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at His voice
All creation rises to rejoice.  
 
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!
 
Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His Words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds?
 
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!
 
Who has felt the nails upon His hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior risen now to reign! 
  
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!
 
You will reign forever,  (Let Your glory fill the earth)
You will reign forever,  (Let Your glory fill the earth)
You will reign forever,  (Let Your glory fill the earth)
You will reign forever,  (Let Your glory fill the earth)
 
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!

Oh, the Lord, our strength and song, highest praise to Him belongs
