WELCOME

 

CALL TO WORSHIP:

from Psalm 96

Oh sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth!

For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it;

 … for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. 

 He will judge the world in righteousness,

and the peoples in his faithfulness.

Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth!


SONG OF PRAISE:

You Alone are the Lord (Psalm 96)

1. We will sing a new song for you
Of your power, salvation, and truth
You are the victory
You can never be moved

2. On our knees we will worship you Lord
On our knees we will worship you Lord
Here with this offering
We come into your courts

CHORUS
Splendor and might, Beauty and light,
You alone are the Lord, You alone are the Lord
Glory and strength, Great is your name,
You alone are the Lord, You alone are the Lord
Trembling here at your feet,
The whole earth,the whole earth is singing!

3. Let our idols fall worthless aside
Those glittering, treacherous lies
We come to the richness
Of the Lord God on high

4. Let the seas rejoice with a shout
Let the fields and the forests cry out
Creation exulting
Let us sing it out loud!

CHORUS
Splendor and might, Beauty and light,
You alone are the Lord, You alone are the Lord
Glory and strength, Great is your name,
You alone are the Lord, You alone are the Lord
Trembling here at your feet,
The whole earth,the whole earth is singing!


 

PRAYER OF INVOCATION:

 

HEARING GOD’S WORD:

Habbakuk 2:5-8, 12-14, 18-20

5 “Moreover, wine is a traitor,
an arrogant man who is never at rest.
His greed is as wide as Sheol;
like death he has never enough.
He gathers for himself all nations
and collects as his own all peoples.”

6 Shall not all these stake up their taunt against him, with scoffing and riddles for him, and say,
“Woe to him who heaps up what is not his own—
for how long?—
and wloads himself with pledges!”
7 Will not your debtors suddenly arise,
and those awake who will make you tremble?
Then you will be spoil for them.
8 Because you have plundered many nations,
all the remnant of the peoples shall plunder you,
for the blood of man and violence to the earth,
to cities and all who dwell in them.

12 “Woe to him who builds a town with blood
and founds a city on iniquity!
13 Behold, is it not from the LORD of hosts
that fpeoples labor merely for fire,
and nations weary themselves for nothing?
14 For the earth will be filled
with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD
as the waters cover the sea.

18 “What profit is an idol
when its maker has shaped it,
a metal image, qa teacher of lies?
For its maker trusts in his own creation
when he makes speechless idols!
19 Woe to him who says to a wooden thing, Awake;
to a silent stone, Arise!
Can this teach?
Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,
and there is no breath at all in it.
20 But the LORD is in his holy temple;
wlet all the earth keep silence before him.”

 

This is the Word of the Lord

Thanks be to God!

Go and compel, the sick and the well
For our Father’s house will be filled

bring in the crippled and blind
All who would taste this banquet of grace
Must come and waste no more time.

The great and the least, the rich and the poor
Come to the feast, come to the table
Come and hunger no more. Come and hunger no more

dressed in his pure righteousness
For all of your guilt, his blood it was spilt
So come by your Father be blessed

Come to the feast, come to the table
Come and hunger no more. Come and hunger no more

Thieves will steal, the earth will shake.
Night will fall, the light will fade;
The Lord will give and take away.

CHORUS
Because of His, great love, we are not overcome!

Because of His, great love, we are not overcome!

In the sod you stand upon.
Flowers fade into dust;
The Lord will make a place for us.

CHORUS
Because of His, great love, we are not overcome!

Because of His, great love, we are not overcome!

3. Offer up your shoes and shirt;
Turn your cheek! Turn your cheek!
Bear the yoke of love and death;
The Lord will give all life and breath.

Because of His, great love, we are not overcome!
