Call to Worship
Psalm 98:1-6
Oh sing to the LORD
a new song,
for he has done
marvelous things…
His right hand and his holy arm
have worked salvation for him.
The LORD has made known
his salvation;
he has revealed his righteousness
in the sight of the nations…
He has remembered his steadfast
love and faithfulness
to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.
Make a joyful noise to the LORD,
all the earth;
break forth into joyous song
and sing praises…
Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre,
with the lyre
and the sound of melody!
With trumpets
and the sound of the horn
make a joyful noise
before the King, the LORD!
Worship Christ, The Risen King
Text: Jack W. Hayford • Music: Henry T. Smart
Rise, O church and lift your voices,
Christ has conquered death and hell.
Sing as all the earth rejoices;
resurrection anthems swell.
Come and worship,
come and worship,
worship Christ, the risen King!
See the tomb where death has laid him,
empty now, its mouth declares:
“Death and I could not contain him,
for the throne of life he shares.”
Come and worship,
come and worship,
worship Christ, the risen King!
Hear the earth protest and tremble,
see the stone removed with pow’r;
all hell’s minions may assemble,
but cannot withstand his hour.
He has conquered,
he has conquered,
Christ the Lord, the risen King!
Doubt may lift its head to murmur,
scoffers mock and sinners jeer;
but the truth proclaims a wonder
thoughtful hearts receive with cheer.
He is risen,
he is risen,
now receive the risen King!
We acclaim your life, O Jesus,
now we sing your victory;
sin or hell may seek to seize us,
but your conquest keeps us free.
Stand in triumph,
stand in triumph,
worship Christ, the risen King!

Prayer of Invocation
Call to Confession of Sin
Joel 2:12-13
“Yet even now,” declares the LORD,
“return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping,
and with mourning;
and rend your hearts
and not your garments”…
Return to the LORD your God,
for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding
in steadfast love;
and he relents over disaster.
Confession of Sin
(From Daniel 9)
O Lord, the great and awesome God,
who keeps covenant and steadfast
love with those who love him and
keep his commandments…
we have sinned and done wrong and
acted wickedly and rebelled, turning
aside from your commandments and
rules…
We have not listened to your servants
the prophets. To you, O Lord, belongs
righteousness, but to us open shame,
because we have sinned against
you…
To the Lord our God belong mercy
and forgiveness. We do not present
our pleas before you because of our
righteousness, but because of your
great mercy. O Lord, hear; O Lord,
forgive. Amen.
(Silent confession)
Assurance of Forgiveness
Joel 2:32
Everyone who calls upon
the name of the LORD
shall be saved.
May the peace of Christ be with you.
And also with you.
Offering
Psalm 96:8
Ascribe to the Lord
the glory due his name;
bring an offering,
and come into his courts!
The Doxology
Text: Thomas Ken (1674)

Old Testament Reading

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God!
Prayers of the People
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Let us pray…
Almighty God
who is from everlasting
to everlasting,
grant us,
amidst the conflicts of this world,
the comfort of a perfect trust in you…
From pride and selfishness,
greed and anger,
spring passions that lead to war
among brothers and sisters in Christ,
as well as war among nations:
Save and help us, O Lord.
For all who are afflicted
by war within themselves,
by the conflicts of doubt,
a rebellious will,
and the darkness of despair:
Save and help us, O Lord.
For all who suffer
in body and circumstance,
the sick, the poor, and the prisoner,
that they would be touched
by your compassion
in their time of need:
Save and help us, O Lord.
And now as our Savior taught us,
we pray:
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power
and the glory forever. Amen.
Come, Ye Sinners, Poor And Needy
Text: Joseph Hart (1759) • Music: Dana Dirksen
Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
full of pity, love, and pow’r.
Let not conscience make you linger,
nor of fitness fondly dream;
all that he requires as fitness
is to know your need of him.
Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
lost and ruined by the fall;
if you tarry till you’re better,
you will never come at all.
Come, arise, and go to Jesus,
he will take you in his arms;
in the love of your dear Savior
you are safe from all alarms.

My Jesus I Love Thee
Text: William R. Featherston (1864) • Music: Adoniram J. Gordon (1876)
My Jesus, I love thee,
I know thou art mine;
for thee all the follies
of sin I resign.
My gracious Redeemer,
my Saviour art thou.
If ever I loved thee,
my Jesus, ’tis now.
I love thee because
thou hast first loved me,
and purchased my pardon
on Calvary’s tree;
I love thee for wearing
the thorns on thy brow.
If ever I loved thee,
my Jesus, ’tis now.
I’ll love thee in life and
I’ll love thee in death;
I’ll praise thee as long as
thou lendest me breath,
and say when the death dew
lies cold on my brow,
“If ever I loved thee,
my Jesus, ’tis now.”
In mansions of glory
and endless delight,
I’ll ever adore thee
in heaven so bright,
and sing with the glittering
crown on my brow,
“If ever I loved thee,
my Jesus, ’tis now.”

Praise be to you, O Christ!
Confession of Faith
The Heidelberg Catechism, Question 1
What is your only comfort
in life and in death?
That I am not my own,
but belong with body and soul,
both in life and in death,
to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ…
He has fully paid for all my sins
with His precious blood,
and has set me free
from all the power of the devil…
He also preserves me in such a way
that without the will
of my heavenly Father
not a hair can fall from my head;
indeed, all things must work together
for my salvation…
Therefore, by His Holy Spirit
He also assures me of eternal life
and makes me heartily willing
and ready from now on
to live for Him.
Amen.

O Lamb Of God, Still Keep Me
Text: James George Deck • Music: Benjamin Wilkinson
O Lamb of God, still keep me
near thy wounded side;
’tis only there in safety
and peace I can abide.
What foes and snares surround me!
What lusts and fears within!
The grace that sought and found me
alone can keep me clean.
’Tis only in thee hiding
I feel myself secure;
’tis only in thee abiding
the conflict can endure.
Thine arm the victory gaineth
o’er every hateful foe;
thy love my heart sustaineth
in all its cares and woes.
Soon shall my eyes behold thee
with rapture, face to face;
one half hath not been told me
of all thy pow’r and grace.
Thy beauty, Lord, and glory,
the wonders of thy love,
shall be the endless story
of all the saints above.

To God Be The Glory
Text: Fanny J. Crosby • Music: William H. Doane
To God be the glory;
great things he has done!
So loved he the world
that he gave us his Son,
who yielded his life
our redemption to win,
and opened the life-gate,
that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
through Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory;
great things he has done!
O perfect redemption,
the purchase of blood,
to every believer
the promise of God;
the vilest offender
who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus
a pardon receives.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
through Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory;
great things he has done!
Great things he has taught us,
great things he has done,
and great our rejoicing
through Jesus the Son;
but purer and higher
and greater will be
our wonder, our transport
when Jesus we see.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
through Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory;
great things he has done!
