Call to Worship

Good Shepherd New York. 2021. Revised.

To see the life that springs around us
To give thanks for the gift we have received
To notice the beauty and promise of fall
To breathe deeply of this season
To accept the gift of love and to love in return
This is to worship God

Let us stand and join our voices together.
God, our Creator,
We rejoice in the life of your world
Jesus, our Shepherd,
We rejoice in the new life you offer
Holy Spirit, our Comforter,
We rejoice in your life-giving companionship
May all our rejoicing bring praise and glory to you. Amen.

The Doxology

Lyrics: Thomas Ken | Tune (“Old Hundredth”): Louis Bourgeois

Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise him all creatures here below
Praise him above, ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost – Amen

King of Heaven

Paul Baloche © 2010. Integrity Worship and Leadworship Songs

Jesus, let Your kingdom come here
Let Your will be done here, in us
Jesus, there is no one greater,
You alone, our savior
Show the ones You love

   King of Heaven, come down
   of Heaven, come now
   Let Your glory reign
   Shining like the day
   King of Heaven, come
   King of Heaven, rise up
   Who can stand against us?
   You are strong to save
   In Your mighty name
   King of Heaven, come

We are, Children of Your mercy
Rescued for Your glory
We cry Jesus, set our hearts towards You
Every eye would see You
Lifted high

   King of Heaven, come
   King of Heaven, come

Praise to the Lord the Almighty

Text: Joachim Neander | Translation: Catherine Winkworth Tune (“Lobe Den Herren”): Unknown

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation
O my soul praise him for he is thy health and salvation
All ye who hear, brothers and sisters draw near
Join me in glad adoration

Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth
Shelters thee under his wings, yea so gently sustaineth
Hast thou not seen all that is needful hath been
Granted in what he ordaineth

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee
Surely his goodness and mercy here daily attend thee
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do
Who with his love doth befriend thee

Praise to the Lord, oh let all that is in me adore him
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before him
Let the amen sound from his people again
Gladly forever adore him

Meditation | Psalm 23 (NRSV)

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
   He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
   he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths
   for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
   I fear no evil; for you are with me;
your rod and your staff— they comfort me.
   You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;

you anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
    my whole life long

Welcome & Prayer for new Students

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Lyrics: Thomas Obediah Chisholm | Tune (“Faithfulness”): William Marion Runyan

Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with thee
Thou changest not, thy compassions they fail not
As thou hast been thou forever wilt be

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To thy great faithfulness mercy and love

   Great is thy faithfulness, great is thy faithfulness
   Morning by morning new mercies I see
   All I have needed thy hand hath provided
   Great is thy faithfulness, Lord unto me

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside

Passing of the Peace of Christ

The peace of Christ be with you.
   And also with you.

Scripture Reading | Psalm 133 (NIV)

How good and pleasant it is
   when God’s people live together in unity!
It is like precious oil poured on the head,
   running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
   down on the collar of his robe.
It is as if the dew of Hermon
   were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the LORD bestows his blessing,
   even life forevermore.

We Trust The Story (Exodus 14:19–20; Job 14:7–9.)

© 2017 Tom Wuest 2017 | Brass Trumpet Publishing

We trust the story behind us
The beauty, hope, and love
And we’re stepping towards the future
With abiding faith in God

   God is with us
   God is with us
   God is with us
   A pillar through the night

We wait with senses ready
For the blossoms yet to come
Like the tender shoots on the hillside
We are reaching towards the sun

   God is with us
   God is with us
   God is with us
   A pillar through the night

   God is with us
   God is with us
   God is with us
   A pillar through the night (repeat x4)
