SONG OF PRAISE

10,000 Reasons

1. The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning.
It’s time to sing Your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.

CHORUS:
Bless the Lord O my soul! O my soul!
Worship His holy name!
Sing like never before, O my soul!
I worship Your holy name!

2. You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find
(to chorus)

3. And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore.
(to chorus x2)

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.

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:

Revelation 21:1–4

1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.  He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

This is the Word of the Lord

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

CONFESSION OF FAITH:

What hope does everlasting life hold for us?

It reminds us that this present fallen world is not all there is; soon we will live with and enjoy God forever in the new city, in the new heaven and the new earth, where we will be fully and forever freed from all sin and will inhabit renewed, resurrection bodies in a renewed, restored creation.

CELEBRATION OF THE LORD’S SUPPER

 

Mt. Zion

We have come
to Mt. Zion

The city of
the living God

The heavenly
Jerusalem

By His blood
we have Come

 

There is a Fountain

1. There is a fountain filled with blood
drawn from Immanuel’s veins
And sinners plugged beneath that flood
loose all their guilty stains;
And sinners plugged beneath that flood
loose all their guilty stains.

2. The dying thief rejoiced to see
that fountain in his day.
And there may I though vile as he
wash all my sins away;
And there may I though vile as he
wash all my sins away.

3. Dear dying Lamb your precious blood
shall never loose its power
‘Till all the ransomed church of God
be saved to sin no more;
‘Till all the ransomed church of God
be saved to sin no more.

4. E’er since by faith I saw the stream
your flowing wounds supply
Redeeming love has been my theme
and shall be ’till I die;
Redeeming love has been my theme
and shall be ’till I die.

 

Commissioning

 

We will Feast in the House of Zion

CHORUS:
We will feast in the house of Zion
We will sing with our hearts restored
He has done great things, we will say together
We will feast and weep no more

1. We will not be burned by the fire
He is the LORD our God
We are not consumed, by the flood
Upheld, protected, gathered up
(to chorus)

2. In the dark of night, before the dawn
My soul, be not afraid
For the promised morning, oh how long?
Oh God of Jacob, be my strength
(to chorus)

3. Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed
You are the Faithful one
And from the garden to the grave
Bind us together, bring shalom.
(to chorus x2)
