Psalm 62

Verse 1
My soul finds rest in God alone
My rock and my salvation
A fortress strong against my foes
And I will not be shaken
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse
And lies like arrows pierce me
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness
I’ll look to Him who hears me

Chorus
O praise Him hallelujah
My Delight and my Reward
Everlasting never failing
My Redeemer my God

Verse 2
Find rest my soul in God alone
Amid the world’s temptations
When evil seeks to take a hold
I’ll cling to my salvation
Though riches come and riches go
Don’t set your heart upon them
The fields of hope in which I sow
Are harvested in heaven

Verse 3
I’ll set my gaze on God alone
And trust in Him completely
With ev’ry day pour out my soul
And He will prove His mercy
Though life is but a fleeting breath
A sigh too brief to measure
My King has crushed the curse of death
And I am His forever

Bridge
O praise Him O praise Him
Hallelujah hallelujah (X3)

CONFESSION OF SIN

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. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. 

Hear us now as we silently name the specific ways that we have sinned against you.

silent confession

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.

HEARING GOD’S WORD:

Matthew 7:24-27

24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

This is the Word of the Lord

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

CONFESSION OF FAITH:

The Apostles’ Creed

Christian, in whom do you trust?

I believe in God the Father Almighty, 
Maker of heaven and earth: 
and in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; 
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 
born of the virgin Mary, 
suffered under Pontius Pilate, 
was crucified, died, and was buried; 
he descended to the dead. 
On the third day he rose again; 
he ascended into heaven, 
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, 
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead. 
I believe in the Holy Spirit; 
the holy catholic church; 
the communion of saints; 
the forgiveness of sins; 
the resurrection of the body; 
and the life everlasting.  
Amen.

*The word catholic means universal. The creed confesses to the unity of Jesus Christ’s church across the world and throughout the ages, regardless of denominational affiliation.

CELEBRATION OF THE LORD’S SUPPER

 

Steadfast


Verse 1
I will build my house
Whether storm or drought
On the rock that does not move
I will set my hope
In your love O Lord
And your faithfulness will prove

Verse 2
By the word you spoke
All the starry host
Are called out by name each night
In your watchful care
I will rest secure
As you lead us with your light

Chorus
You are steadfast steadfast
You are steadfast steadfast

Verse 3
I will not trust in the strength of kings
On your promise I will stand
I will shout for joy I will raise my voice
Hallelujah to the Lamb

Bridge
In the moment of emptiness all was fulfilled
In the hour of darkness your light was revealed
In the presence of death your life was affirmed
In the absence of holiness you are still God

 

All Praise to Thee, My God this Night


1. All praise to thee, my God, this night,
for all the blessings of the light!
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
beneath thine own almighty wings.

2. Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,
the ill that I this day have done,
that with the world, myself, and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3. O may my soul on thee repose,
and with sweet sleep mine eyelids close,
sleep that may me more vigorous make
to serve my God when I awake.

4. Teach me to live, that I may dread
the grave as little as my bed.
Teach me to die, that so I may|
rise glorious at the judgment day.

5. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise him, all creatures here below;
praise him above, ye heavenly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
