Come Worship the Lord

© 1980 Words and Music by John Michael Talbot

   Come worship the Lord, for we are his people,
   The flock that he sheperds

Come let us sing to the Lord
And shout with joy to the rock who saves us
Let us come with thanksgiving
And sing joyful songs to the Lord

The Lord is God the mighty God
The great king o'er all other gods
He holds in his hands the depths of the earth
And the highest mountains as well
He made the sea it belongs now to him
The dry land too was formed by his hand

Come let us bow down and worship
Bending the knee before the Lord our maker
For we are His people
We are the flock that he shepherds

Give Me Jesus

Traditional Spiritual

In the morning when I rise
In the morning when I rise
In the morning when I rise give me Jesus

   Give me Jesus
   Give me Jesus
   You can have all this world
   But give me Jesus

O when I am alone
O when I am alone
O when I am alone, give me Jesus

And when I come to die
And when I come to die
And when I come to die give me Jesus

Prayers of the People

Be Thou My Vision

Lyrics: Mary E. Byrne | Music (“Slane”): traditional Irish melody

Be thou my vision O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me save that thou art
Thou my best thought by day or by night
Waking or sleeping thy presence my light

Be thou my wisdom and thou my true word
I ever with thee and thou with me Lord
Thou my great father and I thy true child
Thou in me dwelling to thee reconciled

Riches I heed not nor vain empty praise
Thou mine inheritance now and always
Thou and thou only first in my heart
High King of Heaven my treasure thou art

High king of heaven my victory won
May I reach heaven's joys O bright heaven's sun
Heart of my own heart whatever befall
Still be my vision O ruler of all

Scripture: Two Feedings

Mark 6:30-44 (NRSVCE)

30 The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they
had done and taught. 31 He said to them, “Come away to a deserted
place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and
going, and they had no leisure even to eat. 32 And they went away in
the boat to a deserted place by themselves. 33 Now many saw them
going and recognized them, and they hurried there on foot from all
the towns and arrived ahead of them. 34 As he went ashore, he saw a
great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were
like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many
things. 35 When it grew late, his disciples came to him and said, “This
is a deserted place, and the hour is now very late; 36 send them away
so that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and
buy something for themselves to eat.” 37 But he answered them,
“You give them something to eat.” They said to him, “Are we to go
and buy two hundred denarii[i] worth of bread, and give it to them to
eat?” 38 And he said to them, “How many loaves have you? Go and
see.” When they had found out, they said, “Five, and two
fish.” 39 Then he ordered them to get all the people to sit down in
groups on the green grass. 40 So they sat down in groups of
hundreds and of fifties. 41 Taking the five loaves and the two fish,
he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave
them to his disciples to set before the people; and he divided the two
fish among them all. 42 And all ate and were filled; 43 and they took up
twelve baskets full of broken pieces and of the fish. 44 Those who had
eaten the loaves numbered five thousand men.

Mark 8:1-10 (NRSVCE)

1In those days when there was again a great crowd without anything
to eat, he called his disciples and said to them, 2 “I have compassion
for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days
and have nothing to eat. 3 If I send them away hungry to their homes,
they will faint on the way—and some of them have come from a
great distance.” 4 His disciples replied, “How can one feed these
people with bread here in the desert?” 5 He asked them, “How many
loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven.” 6 Then he ordered the
crowd to sit down on the ground; and he took the seven loaves, and
after giving thanks he broke them and gave them to his disciples to
distribute; and they distributed them to the crowd. 7 They had also a
few small fish; and after blessing them, he ordered that these too
should be distributed. 8 They ate and were filled; and they took up
the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full. 9 Now there were
about four thousand people. And he sent them away. 10 And
immediately he got into the boat with his disciples and went to
the district of Dalmanutha.

Scripture: Two Catches

Luke 5:1-11 (NRSVCE)

1 Once while Jesus was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret, and
the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, 2 he saw
two boats there at the shore of the lake; the fishermen had gone out
of them and were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats,
the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way
from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the
boat. 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out
into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.” 5 Simon
answered, “Master, we have worked all night long but have caught
nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets.” 6 When they had
done this, they caught so many fish that their nets were beginning
to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come
and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they
began to sink. 8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’
knees, saying, “Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!” 9 For
he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that
they had taken; 10 and so also were James and John, sons of
Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. Then Jesus said to Simon,
“Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.” 11 When
they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and
followed him.

Matthew 17:24-27 (NRSVCE)

24 When they reached Capernaum, the collectors of the temple tax
came to Peter and said, “Does your teacher not pay the temple
tax?” 25 He said, “Yes, he does.” And when he came home, Jesus
spoke of it first, asking, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do
kings of the earth take toll or tribute? From their children or from
others?” 26 When Peter said, “From others,” Jesus said to him, “Then
the children are free. 27 However, so that we do not give offense to
them, go to the sea and cast a hook; take the first fish that comes
up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a coin; take that and
give it to them for you and me.”

This Is My Father's World

Words and Music by Franklin Lawrence Sheppard, John Ribble, and Maltbie Davenport Babcock

This is my Father's world
And to my listening ears
All nature sings and round me rings
The music of the spheres
This is my Father's world
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought

This is my Father's world
The birds their carols raise
The morning light the lily white
Declare their Maker's praise
This is my Father's world
He shines in all that's fair
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass
He speaks to me everywhere

This is my Father's world
O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong
God is the Ruler yet
This is my Father's world
The battle is not done
Jesus who died shall be satisfied
And earth and heaven be one

Grace Be With You All

© 2000 Words and Music by Michael Card, Phil Naish, and Rob Mathes

Remember to love one another
And do what is pleasing to him
Be strengthened by grace
And worship in reverence and awe
The God of peace

And grace be with you all
And may the great shepherd of the sheep
Equip you with all things for doing his will
And grace be with you all

Forget not the suff'rings of Jesus
And bear the disgrace that he bore
Confessing his name
For Christ is the same
Yesterday today and forever
