CHORAL CALL TO WORSHIP Yo me alegr / I Was Glad Central American tune / arr. John L. Bell Calvary Childrens Choir HYMN 97 CALL TO WORSHIP Fairest Lord Jesus

Edgar Palacios

Praise God! How good it is to sing praises to our God. God builds up the city; God brings together those who have been left out. God heals the brokenhearted and makes their wounds better. Great is our God, and abundant in power; Gods understanding is beyond measure. God lifts up those who are beaten down, and puts down those who hurt others. Praise God, for God strengthens our communities. God blesses our children. God grants us peace. Let us worship God! INVOCATION PASSING THE PEACE OF CHRIST Edgar Palacios Edgar Palacios

Job 42: 1 - 6 Judy Russell Psalm 34 Dwayne Pinkney, Cantor

Refrain: Taste and see, taste and see the goodness of the Lord. I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. [Refrain] O taste and see that the Lord is good; happy are those who take refuge in him. O fear the Lord, you his holy ones, for those who fear him have no want. [Refrain] Come, O children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Which of you desires life, and covets many days to enjoy good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. [Refrain] EPISTLE LESSON, P. 974 GOSPEL ACCLAMATION Hebrews 7: 23 - 28 Caio Csar Barreto Alleluia Jacques Berthier (1923 - 1994) Dwayne Pinkney, Cantor

Open My Eyes, That I May See



Edgar Palacios

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. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
