Songs


We worship the God who was.

We worship the God who is,

We worship the God who evermore will be.

 

He opened the prison doors.

He parted the raging sea.

Our God.  He holds the victory.

 

CHORUS: There’s joy in the house of the Lord. 

There’s joy in the house of the Lord today.

And we won’t be quiet. 

We shout out Your praise!

There’s joy in the house of the Lord. 

Our God is surely in this place.

And we won’t be quiet.  

We shout out your praise.

 

We sing to the God who heals,

We sing to the God who saves,

We sing to the God who always makes a way

 

‘Cause He hung upon that cross,

And He rose up from that grave.

My God’s still rolling stones away!   CHORUS:

                  

BRIDGE:  We were the beggars, now we’re royalty.                

We were the prisoners, now we’re running free.

We are forgiven, accepted, redeemed by His grace.

Let house of the Lord sing praise.  (Sing Twice)

 

CHORUS: There’s joy in the house of the Lord. 

There’s joy in the house of the Lord today.

And we won’t be quiet. 

We shout out Your praise!

There’s joy in the house of the Lord. 

Our God is surely in this place.

And we won’t be quiet.  

We shout out your praise.

      

 We shout out your praise!

  • 22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.[b] 23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For,

    “All people are like grass,
        and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
    the grass withers and the flowers fall,
    25
        but the word of the Lord endures forever.”

    And this is the word that was preached to you.


    Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

  • 8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

CONFESSION OF SINS

 

P: We have come into the presence of God who created us to love and serve Him as His dear children, but we have disobeyed Him and deserve only His wrath and punishment. Therefore, let us confess our sins to Him and plead for His mercy.

 

C: Merciful Father in heaven, I am altogether sinful from birth.  In countless ways I have sinned against You and do not deserve to be called Your child.  But trusting in Jesus, my Savior, I pray: Have mercy on me according to Your unfailing love.  Cleanse me from my sin, and take away my guilt.

 

 

  RESPONSE SONG  Rock of Ages


                         <Sing>
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee;

Let the water and the blood, From Thy riven side which flowed

Be of sin the double cure:  Cleanse me from its guilt and power.

 

Nothing in my hands I bring, Simply to Thy cross I cling;

Naked, come to Thee for dress, helpless look to Thee for grace.

Foul, I to the fountain fly – Wash me, Savior, or I die!

 

 

P: Jesus says to His people:  “If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven.”  His death paid for the guilt of Your sins and the sins of the whole world.  Do you believe this?

C: Yes, I believe.


P: Because of the promise of our Savior Jesus, I pronounce to you that your sins are forgiven.  Be assured that you are a dear child of God and an heir of eternal life.  

C:  Amen.


PRAYER:  O Lord, my God, I thank You for the love You have shown me in Jesus Christ, my Savior.  Let me live in the peace of forgiveness, help me fight against temptation, correct whatever wrongs I can, and serve You and those around me with love and good works.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.  Amen.

Lord, the light of Your love is shining, 

In the midst of the darkness shining.

Set us free by the truth You now bring us.  

Shine on me, shine on me.

 

Chorus:  Shine, Jesus, shine! Fill this land with the Father’s glory.

Blaze, Spirit blaze!  Set our hearts on fire.

Flow, river, flow!  Flood the nations with grace and mercy.

Send forth Your Word, Lord, And let there be light!

 

As we gaze on Your kingly brightness,

So our faces display Your likeness.

Ever changing from glory to glory,

Mirrored here, may our lives tell Your story.

Shine on me, shine on me.  Chorus
