The Prayer of St. Francis – Words: St. Francis of Assisi (translation c. 1912), Music: David A. Cover and Christine Cover

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Amen.

1 Chronicles 16:8-9 was our call to worship this morning.

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell of all his wonderful acts.

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty – Words: Joachim Neander (1680), Music: Lobe Herren (1665), Arrangement and chorus: The Crossing Music

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, now to His temple draw near;
Praise him in glad adoration.

I Love You, Lord by Laurie Klein

I love You, Lord, and I lift my voice
to worship You, O my soul, rejoice.
Take joy, my King, in what you hear:
May it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear.

David read James 3:9-10 and Isaiah 59:2as a call to confession.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

But your iniquities have separated
you from your God;
your sins have hidden his face from you,
so that he will not hear.

Since I Am So Sick by Don Chafer

Since I am so sick, since I am in need,
since I have no healing within me,
Oh, my God, be mindful of me,
You are my help and my Redeemer.

Surely those who wait on You
will never be ashamed.
All of those who call on You
will know the faithfulness of Your name.

Open the Eyes of My Heart by Paul Baloche

Open the Eyes of My Heart is based on Ephesians 1:18-21. When we sing this song, we’re asking God to open our hearts to see more and more the incomparable inheritance that we have in Christ.

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart.
I want to see You, I want to see You.

Be Thou My Vision  – Traditional Irish hymn, Arranged by The Crossing Music

High King of heaven, my victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heav’n’s Sun.
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

Psalm 34:4-6 and 2-3 assured us that God hears our prayers and saves us from our sin.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles

I will glory in the Lord;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.

Gloria by Chad Gardner

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!
