Psalm 96
+Please stand as you are able.
Nursery Information

Leader: Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
All: sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offering, and come into his courts!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth!

Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;
he will judge the peoples with equity.”

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord, for he comes,
for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
and the peoples in his faithfulness. (ESV)

Hymn No. 55+
To God Be the Glory
Sheet Music

To God be the glory,
great things he has done!
So loved he the world
that he gave us his Son,
who yielded his life
an atonement for sin,
and opened the life-gate
that we may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
thro’ Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory,
great things he has done!

O perfect redemption,
the purchase of blood!
To ev’ry believer
the promise of God;
the vilest offender
who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus
forgiveness receives.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
thro’ Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory,
great things he has done!

Great things he has taught us,
great things he has done,
and great our rejoicing
through Jesus the Son;
but purer and higher
and greater will be
our wonder, our transport,
when Jesus we see.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father
thro’ Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory,
great things he has done!

Coming Clean

Call to Confession
Jeremiah 21:8; John 5:25

Confession of Sin

Father, you sent your Son Jesus as the way of life. You gave him all authority in heaven and on earth. Yet we often live apathetic to his call, deaf to his voice, following after the many powers in the world that would claim our allegiance, seeking out the many paths that promise us pleasure. We are quick to give him lip service, slow to give him obedience. Jesus, the Siren call of the world lures us to what is convenient, what is comfortable, what is popular. We easily get tricked into chasing after the world, because we want to be tricked. Forgive us for wanting to have a foot on two paths, one pursuing you, and the other the world, listening to you with one ear, and to the world with the other. Fill us with your Spirit to draw us again to yourself. Help us to hear your voice and believe your word. Remind us again of your beauty and your authority and your fullness, that all that we need is found in you. Amen.

Assurance of Grace

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

How deep the Father’s love for us,
how vast beyond all measure,
that He should give His only Son
to make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss,
the Father turns His face away
as wounds which mar the chosen One
bring many sons to glory.

Behold the Man upon a cross,
my sin upon His shoulders.
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that left Him there
until it was accomplished.
His dying breath has brought me life;
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything:
no gifts, no power, no wisdom.
But I will boast in Jesus Christ:
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer.
But this I know with all my heart:
His wounds have paid my ransom.

Confession of Faith+
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 hell.
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.

Prayer for the Church

Hymn No. 305+
Arise, My Soul, Arise
Sheet Music
Parents may escort children ages 0–4 to the nursery at this time.

Arise, my soul, arise,
shake off your guilty fears:
the bleeding Sacrifice
in my behalf appears:
before the throne my Surety stands,
before the throne my Surety stands,
my name is written on his hands.

He ever lives above,
for me to intercede,
his all-redeeming love,
his precious blood to plead;
his blood atoned for ev’ry race,
his blood atoned for ev’ry race,
and sprinkles now the throne of grace.

Five bleeding wounds he bears,
received on Calvary;
they pour effectual prayers,
they strongly plead for me.
“Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry,
“forgive him, O forgive,” they cry,
“nor let that ransomed sinner die!”

My God is reconciled;
his pard’ning voice I hear;
he owns me for his child,
I can no longer fear;
with confidence I now draw nigh,
with confidence I now draw nigh,
and “Father, Abba, Father!” cry.

  • Hymn+
    Before the Throne of God Above

    Before the throne of God above,
    I have a strong and perfect plea:
    a great High Priest whose name is Love,
    who ever lives and pleads for me.
    My name is graven on His hands;
    my name is written on His heart.
    I know that while in heav’n He stands
    no tongue can bid me thence depart,
    no tongue can bid me thence depart.

    When Satan tempts me to despair
    and tells me of the guilt within,
    upward I look, and see Him there,
    who made an end of all my sin.
    Because the sinless Savior died
    my sinful soul is counted free,
    for God the just is satisfied
    to look on Him and pardon me,
    to look on Him and pardon me.

    Behold Him there, the risen Lamb,
    my perfect, spotless Righteousness,
    the great unchangeable I AM,
    the King of Glory and of Grace.
    One with Himself, I cannot die;
    my soul is purchased by His blood;
    my life is hid with Christ on high,
    with Christ my Savior and my God,
    with Christ my Savior and my God.
