Call to Worship

Psalm 62:5-8 (ESV)

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.

How Firm a Foundation

(listen here)

How firm a foundation, you saints of the Lord,
is laid for your faith in his excellent Word!
What more can he say than to you he has said,
to you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

 

Fear not, I am with you, O be not dismayed;
for I am your God, and will still give you aid;
I'll strengthen you, help you, and cause you to stand,
upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

 

When through the deep waters I call you to go,
the rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
for I will be with you, your troubles to bless,
and sanctify to you your deepest distress.

When through fiery trials your pathway shall lie,
my grace, all-sufficient, shall be your supply;
the flame shall not hurt you; I only design
your dross to consume and your gold to refine.


The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
that soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I'll never, no never, no never forsake.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Sins

Merciful Lord, we confess that with us there is an abundance of sin, but in you there is the fullness of righteousness and abundance of mercy. We are spiritually poor, but you are rich and in Jesus Christ came to be merciful to the poor. Strengthen our faith and trust in you. We are empty vessels that need to be filled; fill us. We are weak in faith; strengthen us. We are cold in love; warm us, and make our hearts fervent for you that our love may go out to one another and to our neighbors, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Hope

Ephesians 1:3-11 (ESV)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will.

Sovereign Over Us

(listen here)

There is strength within the sorrow, there is beauty in our tears
and You meet us in our mourning with a love that casts out fear

You are working in our waiting, sanctifying us
When beyond our understanding you're teaching us to trust

Your plans are still to prosper, you've not forgotten us

You're with us in the fire and the flood, faithful forever perfect in love

You are sov'reign over us

 

You are wisdom unimagined, who could understand Your ways
Reigning high above the heavens, reaching down in endless grace

 

You're the lifter of the lowly, compassionate and kind

You surround and You uphold me, and Your promises are my delight

 

Your plans are still to prosper, you've not forgotten us

You're with us in the fire and the flood, faithful forever perfect in love

You are sov'reign over us

 
Even what the enemy means for evil, you turn it for our good

You turn it for our good, and for Your glory
Even in the valley You are faithful,
You're working for our good
You're working for our good
And for Your glory

 

Your plans are still to prosper, you've not forgotten us

You're with us in the fire and the flood, faithful forever perfect in love

You are sov'reign over us

He Will Hold Me Fast

(listen here)

When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast
When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast
I could never keep my hold through life's fearful path
For my love is often cold, He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Savior loves me so
He will hold me fast

Those He saves are His delight, Christ will hold me fast
Precious in His holy sight, He will hold me fast
He'll not let my soul be lost, His Promises shall last
Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast.

 

He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Savior loves me so
He will hold me fast

For my life He bled and died, Christ will hold me fast
Justice has been satisfied, He will hold me fast
Raised with Him to endless life, He will hold me fast
Till our faith is turned to sight, When He comes at last.

 

He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Savior loves me so
He will hold me fast

Whom Shall I Fear (God Of Angel Armies)

(listen here)

You hear me when I call
You are my morning song
Though darkness fills the night
It cannot hide the light
Whom shall I fear?

You crush the enemy underneath my feet
You are my sword and shield
Though troubles linger still
Whom shall I fear?


I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind

The God of angel armies is always by my side

The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine

The God of angel armies is always by my side

My strength is in Your name
For You alone can save
You will deliver me
Yours is the victory
Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind

The God of angel armies is always by my side

The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine

The God of angel armies is always by my side


And nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in Your hands
I'm holding on to Your promises

You are faithful
You are faithful


I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind

The God of angel armies is always by my side

The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine

The God of angel armies is always by my side
