To all who are spiritually weary and seek rest;

Call to Worship: Psalm 22:27; 18:49

Pastor:   
Come all the ends of the earth
Remember and turn to the LORD
and let all the families of the nations
worship before You.

For this we come, O LORD,
from among the nations to sing
to Your name. That all the ends of the
earth remember and turn to the Lord
and that all the families of the nations
worship before You.

Hymn of Adoration: All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name! #296
(scroll down for sheet music)

1. All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all;
bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all.

2. Crown him, ye martyrs of your God,
who from his altar call;
extol the Stem of Jesse’s rod,
and crown him Lord of all;
extol the Stem of Jesse’s rod,
and crown him Lord of all.

3. Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race,
ye ransomed of the fall,
hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all;
hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all.

4. Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget
the wormwood and the gall,
go, spread your trophies at his feet,
and crown him Lord of all;
go, spread your trophies at his feet,
and crown him Lord of all.

5. Let ev’ry kindred, ev’ry tribe,
on this terrestrial ball,
to him all majesty ascribe,
and crown him Lord of all;
to him all majesty ascribe,
and crown him Lord of all.

6. O that with yonder sacred throng
we at his feet may fall;
we’ll join the everlasting song,
and crown him Lord of all;
we’ll join the everlasting song,
and crown him Lord of all.

Prayer of Adoration

Gloria Patri
Glory be to the Father,
And to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World without end. Amen, amen.

APPROACHING GOD IN CONFESSION AND SERVICE

Call to Confession: Psalm 81:6-10

“He says, ‘I removed the burden from their shoulders; their hands were set free from the basket.  In your distress you called and I rescued you, I answered you out of a thundercloud; I tested you at the waters of Meribah.  Hear, O my people, and I will warn you − if you would but listen to me, O Israel!  You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not bow down to an alien god.  I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt.  Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.’”

Prayer of Confession in Unison:

Father, You have called us out of slavery to sin.  We have been freed from the weight of sin and darkness.  We called out in our time of trouble, and You saved us.  You have always proven Your faithfulness to us.

Yet we often fail to listen to Your Words.  Instead, we harbor worthless gods in our hearts.  It is our sinful urges that we are quick to obey instead of You.  Forgive us for this great sin.  Help us to remember what You have done for us.  May we speak generously of Your mercy poured out upon us.  May we find all our blessing in You.

We come to You in our Savior’s name and merit.  Amen

Now hear the Lord’s Assurance of Pardon

“The LORD is righteous in all His ways and loving toward all He has made. The LORD is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cry and saves them.  The LORD watches over all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy.”
Psalm 145:17-20

Hymn: From the Depths of Woe (scroll down for sheet music)
Martin Luther/Christopher Miner

1. From the depths of woe I raise to Thee
The voice of lamentation;
Lord, turn a gracious ear to me
And hear my supplication;
If Thou iniquities dost mark,
Our secret sins and misdeeds dark,

Men:
O who could stand before Thee?
Women Echo:
(O who could stand before Thee?)
Men:
O who could stand before Thee?
Women Echo:
(O who could stand before Thee?)
Men:
Before Thee?

2. To wash away the crimson stain,
Grace, grace alone availeth;
Our works, alas! Are all in vain;
In much the best life faileth;
No man can glory in Thy sight,
All must alike confess Thy might,

Men:
And live alone by mercy
Women Echo:
(And live alone by mercy)
Men:
And live alone by mercy
Women Echo:
(And live alone by mercy)
Men:
By Mercy

3. Therefore my trust is in the Lord,
And not in mine own merit;
On Him my soul shall rest, His word
Upholds my fainting spirit;
His promised mercy is my fort,
My comfort and my sweet support;

Men:
I wait for it with patience
Women Echo:
(I wait for it with patience)
Men:
I wait for it with patience
Women Echo:
(I wait for it with patience)
Men:
With patience

4. Though great our sins and sore our woes
His grace much more aboundeth;
His helping love no limit knows,
Our upmost need it soundeth.
Our Shepherd good and true is He,
Who will at last His Israel free

Men:
From all their sin and sorrow
Women Echo:
(From all their sin and sorrow)
Men:
From all their sin and sorrow
Women Echo:
(From all their sin and sorrow)
Men:
And sorrow

Prayer of Application

Hymn: Beneath the Cross (scroll down form sheet music)
Keith & Kristyn Getty

1. Beneath the cross of Jesus
I find a place to stand,
And wonder at such mercy
That calls me as I am;
For hands that should discard me
Hold wounds which tell me, “Come.”
Beneath the cross of Jesus
My unworthy soul is won.

2. Beneath the cross of Jesus
His family is my own—
Once strangers chasing selfish dreams,
Now one through grace alone.
How could I now dishonor
The ones that You have loved?
Beneath the cross of Jesus
See the children called by God.

3. Beneath the cross of Jesus—
The path before the crown—
We follow in His footsteps
Where promised hope is found.
How great the joy before us
To be His perfect bride;
Beneath the cross of Jesus
We will gladly live our lives.

RECEIVING THE LORD’S SUPPER

The Apostles’ Creed:
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
    Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
    who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
    and born of the virgin Mary. 
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
    he descended into Hades. 
    The third day he rose again from the dead. 
    He ascended into heaven and is seated
    at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
    From there he will come to judge
    the living and the dead. 
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
    the holy catholic church,*
    the communion of saints,
    the forgiveness of sins,
    the resurrection of the body,
    and the life everlasting.  Amen.
     *catholic church means universal church.

RESPONDING TO THE WORD OF GOD

Hymn: Amazing Grace! #460 (scroll down for sheet music)

1. Amazing grace!– how sweet the sound–
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see.

2. ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed!

3. Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

4. The Lord has promised good to me,
his Word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures.

5. And when this flesh and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil
a life of joy and peace.

6. When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
than when we’ve first begun.

Colossians 3:1-4; II Corinthians 1:24; 4:12
