Call to Worship
Interim Senior Pastor, Rev. John Sittema

 

Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah

Scottish Psalter | D. Jordan

Hallelujah, praise Jehovah
O my soul, Jehovah praise
I will sing the glorious praises
Of my God through all my days
Put no confidence in princes
Nor for help on man depend
He shall die, to dust returning
And his purposes shall end

Happy is the man that chooses
Israel’s God to be his aid
He is blest whose hope of blessing
On the Lord his God is stayed
Heaven and earth the Lord created
Seas and all that they contain
He delivers from oppression
Righteousness He will maintain

Food He daily gives the hungry
Sets the mourning prisoner free
Raises those bowed down with anguish
Makes the sightless eyes to see
Well Jehovah loves the righteous
And the stranger He befriends
Helps the fatherless and widow
Judgment on the wicked sends

Hallelujah, praise Jehovah
O my soul Jehovah praise
I will sing the glorious praises
Of my God through all my days
Over all God reigns forever
Through all ages He is King
Unto Him, thy God, O Zion
Joyful hallelujahs sing

 

God Cleanses Us

Jesus Messiah

D. Carson | E. Cash | J. Reeves | C. Tomlin

He became sin
Who knew no sin
That we might become
His righteousness
He humbled Himself
And carried the cross
Love so amazing
Love so amazing

chorus

Jesus Messiah
Name above all names

Blessed Redeemer Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners
The ransom from Heaven

Jesus Messiah Lord of all

His body the bread
His blood the wine
Broken and poured out
All for love
The whole earth trembled
And the veil was torn
Love so amazing
Love so amazing

chorus

Jesus Messiah
Name above all names

Blessed Redeemer Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners
The ransom from Heaven

Jesus Messiah Lord of all

All our hope is in You
All our hope is in You
All the glory to You
God The Light of the world

chorus

Jesus Messiah
Name above all names

Blessed Redeemer Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners
The ransom from Heaven

Jesus Messiah Lord of all

 

Psalm 16: Fullness Of Joy

S. Barnard

Preserve me, O God
For I find rest in You alone
I say to the Lord,
“You are my Lord; I have no good
Apart from You”
All sons and daughters
Brothers, sisters my delight
Let’s sing together,
“No other gods shall satisfy;”
God You satisfy

chorus

In Your presence
There is fullness
Of joy, joy

You give me counsel
My heart instructs me in the night
You are before me
Because You’re for me, I’m alright
It’ll be alright

chorus

In Your presence
There is fullness
Of joy, joy
At your right hand
There are pleasures
Forevermore
Forevermore

And my heart is glad
And my soul rejoice
My flesh it dwells secure
‘Cause You put on flesh
Lived a blameless life
My curse on the cross You bore
Then You ripped the doors
Off the City of Death
And the chains fell to the floor
Now the serpent’s crushed
It has been finished
And You reign forevermore

You are my portion
My cup, and You make my lot secure
The lines have fallen
For me in pleasant places
A beautiful inheritance

chorus

In Your presence
There is fullness
Of joy, joy
At your right hand
There are pleasures
Forevermore
Forevermore

 

Abide With Me

H. F. Lyte | J. Smith

Abide with me
Fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens
Lord with me abide
When other helpers
Fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless
Abide with me

Thou on my head in
Early youth did smile
And, though rebellious
And perverse meanwhile
Thou hast not left me
Though I oft left Thee
On to the close Lord
Abide with me

I need Thy presence
Every passing hour
What but Thy grace can
Foil the tempter’s power
Who, like Thyself my
Guide and stay can be
Through cloud and sunshine
Abide with me

I fear no foe
With Thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight
Tears lose their bitterness
Where is thy sting death
Where grave thy victory
I triumph still
Abide with me

Hold Thou Thy cross
Before my closing eyes
Shine through the gloom and
Point me to the skies
Heav’ns morning breaks and
Earth’s vain shadows flee
In life, in death, Lord
Abide with me

Song of Preparation
The Lord Our God

K. Stanfill | J. Ingram

Promise maker, Promise keeper
You finish what You begin
Our provision through the desert
You see it through till the end
You see it through till the end

chorus

The Lord our God is
Ever faithful

Never changing
Through the ages

From this darkness
You will lead us

And forever we will say
You’re the Lord our God

In the silence in the waiting
Still we can know You are good
All Your plans are for Your glory
Yes we can know You are good
Yes we can know You are good

chorus

The Lord our God is
Ever faithful

Never changing
Through the ages

From this darkness
You will lead us

And forever we will say
You’re the Lord our God

We won’t move without You
We won’t move without You
You’re the light of all
And all that we need

chorus

The Lord our God is
Ever faithful

Never changing
Through the ages

From this darkness
You will lead us

And forever we will say
You’re the Lord our God

Song of Response
The Sands Of Time Are Sinking

A. R. Cousin | P. Palmertree

The sands of time are sinking
The dawn of heaven breaks
The summer morn I’ve sighed for
The fair, sweet morn awakes
Dark, dark had been the midnight
But dayspring is at hand
And glory, glory dwelleth
In Emmanuel’s land

The King there in His beauty
Without a veil is seen
It were a well-spent journey
Though sev’n deaths lay between
The Lamb with His fair army
Doth on Mount Zion stand
And glory, glory dwelleth
In Emmanuel’s land

O Christ, He is the fountain
The deep, sweet well of love!
The streams on earth I’ve tasted
More deep I’ll drink above
There to an ocean fullness
His mercy doth expand
And glory, glory dwelleth
In Emmanuel’s land

The bride eyes not her garment
But her dear Bridegroom’s face
I will not gaze at glory
But on my King of grace
Not at the crown He giveth
But on His pierced hand
The Lamb is all the glory
Of Emmanuel’s land

O I am my Beloved’s
And my Beloved is mine!
He brings a poor vile sinner
Into His house of wine
I stand upon His merit
I know no other stand
Not e’en where glory dwelleth
In Emmanuel’s land

 

Benediction
Rev. John Sittema
