1. Divine Invitation by Steve Hindalong and Eric Owyoung, Arrangement: Page CXVI

We are all here to find
the place where our restless souls will be free.
We were all made to see.
our hearts could not rest until found in Thee.

In this divine invitation we find Your embrace
and in our deep adoration see the light of Your face.
In this divine invitation we all find the place
for our souls where the longings were born long ago.

2. Call to Worship: Matthew 11:28-30, Psalm 62:1-2

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

3. In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

4. Reading: Psalm 62

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

How long will you assault me?
Would all of you throw me down—
this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
from my lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

Surely the lowborn are but a breath,
the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
together they are only a breath.
Do not trust in extortion
or put vain hope in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
do not set your heart on them.

One thing God has spoken,
two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,
and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;
and, “You reward everyone
according to what they have done.”

5. Psalm 62 (My Soul Finds Rest) by Stuart Townend and Aaron Keyes

My soul find rest in God alone,
my Rock and my salvation,
a fortress strong against my foes,
and I will not be shaken.
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse,
and lies like arrows pierce me,
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness,
I’ll look to Him who hears me.

6. Psalm 62:1-4

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

How long will you assault me?
Would all of you throw me down—
this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
from my lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.

7. Dear Refuge of My Weary Soul – Words by Anne Steele (1716-1778), Contemporary Music by Kevin Twit

Dear refuge of my weary soul,
on Thee, when sorrows rise
on Thee, when waves of trouble roll,
my fainting hope relies;
To Thee I tell each rising grief,
for Thou alone canst heal.
Thy Word can bring a sweet relief,
for every pain I feel.

Hast Thou not bid me seek Thy face,
And shall I seek in vain?
And can the ear of sovereign grace,
Be deaf when I complain?
No still the ear of sovereign grace,
Attends the mourner’s prayer
Oh may I ever find access,
To breathe my sorrows there.

8. Silent Prayers of Lament

9. Psalm 62:5-8

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

10. The Solid Rock – Words by Edward Mote (1834); Music by William B. Brad­bu­ry (1863), Arranged by Page CXVI

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand
all other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand.

11. Rock of Ages – Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Contemporary chorus by Page CXVI (2009). Arrangement by Page CXVI and David Wilton

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Save from wrath and make me pure.

12. Nothing But the Blood by Robert Lowry (1876)

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

How precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

13. Psalm 62:9-10

Surely the lowborn are but a breath,
the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
together they are only a breath.
Do not trust in extortion
or put vain hope in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
do not set your heart on them.

14. Corporate Prayer of Confession (based on Psalm 62) by Charles Anderson

Father, we confess that we have looked at people from a worldly point of view.
We have thought too highly of those who have status, who are popular, the celebrities and the cool.
We have envied their glamor, their beauty, their comfort.

Lord, have mercy and hear our prayer.

Father, we confess that we have thought too little of those who are on the margins, the outcast and the awkward.
We have disregarded how all of us are created in your image.

Lord, have mercy and hear our prayer.

Father, we confess that we have sought and schemed for our own agenda.
We have pressured and manipulated other people to get what we want.
We have pushed to get our own way no matter what the cost to others.

Lord, have mercy and hear our prayer.

Father, we confess that we have tried to bargain with you and manipulate you, the Creator and King of heaven and earth.
We have not recognized you as Lord nor ourselves as those who are dependent on you in every way for all that we have and are.

Lord, have mercy and hear our prayer.

Father, we confess that we have become distracted by the good things you give us.
We have confused the Giver and the gift.
We have allowed your blessings to pull our attention away from trusting in you.

Lord, have mercy and hear our prayer.

Father, we confess that we have stolen.
We have treated our time as if it’s ours to use however we want.
We have been careless with relationships.
We have not given generously to what you are doing in our community and the world around us.

Lord, have mercy and hear our prayer.

Father, we confess that we have set our hearts on our riches.
We have looked to money for security, for safety.
We have tried to serve both you and money.

Lord, have mercy and hear our prayer.

Lord of grace and truth,
we confess to you our unworthiness
to stand in your presence.
We have sinned against you
Forgive us and make us whole, we pray.

Amen.

15. NEW SONG – From the Depths of Woe (Psalm 130) – Words: Martin Luther (1523), Music: Christopher Miner (1997)

From the depths of woe I raise to Thee
The voice of lamentation;
Lord, turn a gracious ear to me
And hear my supplication;
If Thou iniquities dost mark,
Our secret sins and misdeeds dark,
O who shall stand before Thee?

Though great our sins and sore our woes
His grace much more aboundeth;
His helping love no limit knows,
Our upmost need it soundeth.
Our Shepherd good and true is He,
Who will at last His Israel free
From all their sin and sorrow.

16. Words of Assurance: Isaiah 25:7-9

On this mountain he will destroy?
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
?the sheet that covers all nations;
he will swallow up death forever.?
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears? from all faces;?
he will remove his people’s disgrace? from all the earth.
?The Lord has spoken.

In that day they will say,
“Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.?
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”

17. O My Soul, AriseWords: Charles Wesley (1742), Music and additional words: Eric McAllister

O my soul, arise
Behold the risen Christ
Your Great High Priest
Your spotless sacrifice O my soul, arise
God owns you as His child
Shake off your guilty fears
My soul, arise

18. Psalm 62:11-12

One thing God has spoken,
two things I have heard:

“Power belongs to you, God,
and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;
and, “You reward everyone
according to what they have done.”

19. Behold Our God by Jonathan Baird, Meghan Baird and Stephen Altrogge

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?
Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come, let us adore Him.

20. The Gospel Song by Bob Kauflin and Drew Jones

Holy God, in love, became
perfect Man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin.
By His death I live again.

21. How Deep the Father’s Love For Us by Stuart Townend, Arrangement: King’s Kaleidoscope

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 held Him there
until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life –
I know that it is finished.

22. It is Finished by Dustin Kensrue

There’s no sacrifice to offer,
there’s no penance to complete;
Freely drink of living water,
without money come and feast.

It is finished! He has done it!
let your weary heart rejoice.
Our redemption is accomplished
raise a shout with ragged voice.
