The Lord’s Day Worship Service February 9, 2014 God Calls Us To Worship

The Call to Worship
~ based on Psalm 84 ~ The light of life Was crushed for our rebellion He died our death And rose up from the grave Our King will come With trumpet blasts resounding To claim His blood-washed bride He’ll rend the skies Descending in His glory And in an instant faith will turn to sight “At Your Name” The mountains shake and crumble At Your name The oceans roar and tumble At Your name angels will bow The earth will rejoice Your people cry out Lord of all the earth we shout Your name Shout Your name Filling up the skies with endless praise Endless praise Yahweh Yahweh We love to shout Your name oh Lord At Your name The morning breaks in glory At Your name Creation sings Your story At Your name angels will bow The earth will rejoice Your people cry out There is no one like our God We will praise You praise You There's no one like our God We will sing we will sing There is no one like our God We will praise You praise You There's no one like our God We will sing Lord of all the earth we'll shout Your name Shout Your name Filling up the skies with endless praise Endless praise Yahweh Yahweh We love to shout Your name oh Lord

Call to Repentance & Renewal

chorus Be the fire in my heart Be the wind in these sails Be the reason that I live Jesus, Jesus Jesus, be my vision Be my path, be my guide Jesus

! “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” ! Come, thou fount of ev’ry blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace Streams of mercy, never ceasing Call for songs of loudest praise Teach me some melodious sonnet Sung by flaming tongues above Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it Mount of God’s unchanging love Here I raise my Ebenezer Hither by Thy help I’m come And I hope, by Thy good pleasure Safely to arrive at home Jesus sought me when a stranger Wand’ring from the fold of God He to rescue me from danger Interposed His precious blood O to grace how great a debtor Daily I’m constrained to be Let that grace now, like a fetter Bind my wand’ring heart to Thee Prone to wander—Lord I feel it Prone to leave the God I love Here’s my heart, O take and seal it Seal it for Thy courts above

Song of Preparation

“All I Have Is Christ” I once was lost in darkest night! Yet thought I knew the way! The sin that promised joy and life! Had led me to the grave! I had no hope that You would own! A rebel to Your will! And if You had not loved me first! I would refuse You still But as I ran my hell-bound race! Indifferent to the cost! You looked upon my helpless state! And led me to the cross! And I beheld God’s love displayed! You suffered in my place! You bore the wrath reserved for me! Now all I know is grace chorus Hallelujah! All I have is Christ! Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

body wasted away, and I groaned all day long. Day and night Your hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. Finally, I confessed all my sins to You and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, ‘I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.’ And You forgave me! All my guilt is gone.”
