Approach

 

WELCOME

 

CALL TO WORSHIP: Isaiah 12:2; 5–6

Behold, God is my salvation;
    I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the Lord God is my strength and my song,
    and he has become my salvation.

Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously;
    let this be made known in all the earth.
Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion,
    for great in your  midst is the Holy One of Israel.

 

PRAYER OF INVOCATION

We Long to See You

Almighty God, we long to see you; 
Open our hearts and make them pure. 
Spirit, we wash our hands in mercy; 
Come teach our souls to love your truth.

 

SONG OF PRAISE

Father Long Before Creation

1. Father, long before creation,
thou had chosen us in love,
And that love so deep, so moving,
draws us close to Christ above.
Still it keeps us, still it keeps us
firmly fixed in Christ alone.

2. Though the world may change its fashion,
yet our God is ever the same;
His compassion and his covenant
through all ages will remain.
God’s own children, God’s own children
must forever praise his name.

3. God’s compassion is my story,
is my boasting all the day;
Mercy free and never failing
moves my will, directs my way.
God so loved us, God so loved us
that his only Son he gave.

4. Loving Father now before thee
we will ever praise thy love,
And our songs will sound unceasing
reaching to your throne above,
Giving glory, giving glory
to our God and to the Lamb;
Giving glory, giving glory
to our God and to the Lamb;
Giving glory, giving glory
to our God and to the Lamb.

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.

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

 

O God our Help in Ages Past

1. O God, our Help in ages past,
our Hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
and our eternal Home.
Under the shadow of Thy throne,
still may we dwell secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone, 
and our defense is sure.
And our defense is sure.

2. Before the hills in order stood,
or earth received her frame.
From everlasting, Thou art God,
to endless years the same.
A thousand ages, in Thy sight,
are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night,
before the rising sun.
Before the rising sun.

3. Time, like an ever rolling stream,
bears all who breathe away;
They fly forgotten, as a dream
dies at the opening day.
Our God our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come;
Be Thou our guide while life shall last,
and our eternal home.
And our eternal home.

 

Commissioning

 

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.
