Call to Worship | Psalm 95:1-7

With verse 6 refrain

O come, let us worship and bow down,
    let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!

O come, let us sing to the LORD;
    let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
    let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

O come, let us worship and bow down,
    let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!

For the LORD is a great God,
    and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth;
    the heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,
    and the dry land, which his hands have formed.

O come, let us worship and bow down,
    let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!
For he is our God,
    and we are the people of his pasture,
    and the sheep of his hand.

O come, let us worship and bow down,
    let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!

Come People of the Risen King

© 2007 Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty, Stuart Townend

Come people of the Risen King
Who delight to bring him praise
Come all and tune your hearts to sing
To the Morning Star of Grace
From the shifting shadows of the earth
We will lift our eyes to him
Where steady arms of mercy reach
To gather children in

    Rejoice! Rejoice!
    Let ev'ry tongue rejoice
    One heart, one voice
    O church of Christ rejoice

Come those whose joy is morning sun
And those weeping through the night
Come those who tell of battles won
And those struggling in the fight
For His perfect love will never change
And his mercies never cease
But follow us through all our days
With the certain hope of peace

Come young and old from ev'ry land
Men and women of the faith
Come those with full or empty hands
Find the riches of his grace
Over all the world his people sing
Shore to shore we hear them call
The truth that cries through ev'ry age:
Our God is all in all!


Josh Song

Reflection | "Praise (III)"

Written by George Herbert

Lord, I will mean and speak thy praise, thy praise alone.
My busie heart shall spin it all my dayes:
    And when it stops for want of store,
Then will I wring it with a sigh or grone,
        That thou mayst yet have more.

    When thou dost favour any action, it runnes, it flies:
All things concurre to give it a perfection.
    That which had but two legs before,
When thou dost blesse, hath twelve: one wheel doth rise
        To twentie then, or more.

    But when thou dost on businesse blow, it hangs, it clogs:
Not all the teams of Albion in a row
    Can hale or draw it out of doore.
Legs are but stumps, and Pharaoh's wheels but logs,
        And struggling hinders more.

    Thousands of things do thee employ in ruling all
This spacious globe: Angels must have their joy,
    Devils their rod, the sea his shore,
The windes their stint: and yet when I did call,
        Thou heardst my call, and more.

    I have not lost one single tear: but when mine eyes
Did weep to heav'n, they found a bottle there
    (As we have boxes for the poore)
Readie to take them in; yet of a size
        That would contain much more.

    But after thou hadst slipt a drop from thy right eye
(Which there did hang like streamers neare the top
    Of some fair church to show the sore
And bloudie battell which thou once didst trie)
        The glasse was full and more.

    Wherefore I sing. Yet since my heart, though press'd, runnes thin:
O that I might some other hearts convert,
    And so take up at use good store:
That to thy chests there might be coming in
        Both all my praise, and more!

O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

Lyrics: George Matheson | Tune: Christopher Miner

O Love that will not let me go
I rest my weary soul in thee
I give thee back the life I owe
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer fuller be

O Light that follow'st all my way
I yield my flickering torch to thee
My heart restores its borrowed ray
That in thy sunshine's blaze its day
May brighter fairer be

O Joy that seekest me through pain
I cannot close my heart to thee
I trace the rainbow through the rain
And feel the promise is not vain
That morn shall tearless be

O Cross that liftest up my head
I dare not ask to fly from thee
I lay in dust life's glory dead
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be

Scripture | Habakkuk 3:17-19 (NIV)

Though the fig tree does not bud
    and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
    and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
    and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
    I will be joyful in God my Savior.

The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
    he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
    he enables me to tread on the heights.

Though the fig tree does not bud
There are no grapes on the vines
Though the olive crop has failed
And the trees produce no food

    I will lift your name
    I will lift your name

Though my eyes can't see the way
And this valley seems so deep
In this trial I thank you Lord
For your peace which cares for me

All I have is from you Lord
And it's yours to take away
In all things you work for good
In all things I'll praise your name

It is Well with My Soul

Lyrics: Horatio Gates Spafford | Tune (Ville du Havre): Philip Bliss

When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blessed assurance control
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate
And hath shed his own blood for my soul

    It is well (it is well)
    With my soul (with my soul)
    It is well, it is well with my soul

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part, but the whole
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

And, Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend
Even so, it is well with my soul
