Sanctus – Words: Traditional (c. 1st century), Music: Christine Cover and Scott Johnson

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

Awakening by Chris Tomlin and Reuben Morgan

In Your presence, in Your power, awakening.
For this moment, for this hour, awakening.

For You and You alone awake my soul;
Awake my soul and sing.
For the world You love Your will be done;
Let Your will be done in me.

This morning’s call to worship (based on Psalm 29:1-2 and Revelation 15:3b-4) offered a hymn a praise to God for his mighty power and incomparable nature.

Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

“Great and marvelous are your deeds,
Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
King of the nations.
Who will not fear you, Lord,
and bring glory to your name?
For you alone are holy.

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.

Our call to confession was from Isaiah 1:18. God calls us back to Himself so that we may know the cleansing from sin He promises through Jesus Christ.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.

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

Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling.
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace.
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior or I die.

Nothing But the Blood – Words and Music by Robert Lowry

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.

Following a time of silent confession, we heard God’s promise of forgiveness (from Psalm 91:14-15) for all who call who on Him and seek His mercy through Christ’s one sacrifice on the cross.

“Those who love me, I will deliver,” says the Lord.
“I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call to me, I will answer them;
I will be with them in trouble,
I will rescue them and honor them
and show them my salvation.”

This is God’s gospel promise.

In Christ, God answers us and sets us free.
In Christ, shame is past, guilt is gone
and divine mercy is ours.

Glory to God. Amen.

Gloria by King’s Kaliedoscope

Chad Gardner writes in a blog post about this song (based on Psalm 34), “Christ delivers us, making us unashamed and radiant. When we really see who Christ is, when we actually taste his goodness and are overwhelmed, how else could we respond but with a resounding “Gloria!”

O taste and see that the Lord is good;
all you people, all you saints
all you children of the king.
Gloria!, Gloria!, Gloria!, Gloria!

Here is Our King (chorus only) by David Crowder

Here is our King, here is our love,
here is our God who’s come
to bring us back to Him.
He is the One, He is Jesus.

All I Have is Christ by Jordan Kauflin

Now Lord, I would be Yours alone,
and live so all might see,
the strength to follow Your commands
could never come from me.
O Father, use my ransomed life
in any way You choose,
and let my song forever be
my only boast is grace.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.
