Medley: How Great is Our God by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Ed Cash, Arranged by The Crossing Music

The splendor of the King,
clothed in majesty;
Let all the earth rejoice,
all the earth rejoice.
He wraps Himself in light,
and darkness tries to hide,
and trembles at His voice,
and trembles at His voice.

Medley: How Great Thou Art by Stuart K. Hine, Arranged by The Crossing Music

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed:

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!

Zach read from Psalm 119:103-107.

How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
I gain understanding from your precepts;
therefore I hate every wrong path.

Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.
I have taken an oath and confirmed it, ?
that I will follow your righteous laws.
I have suffered much; ?
preserve my life, LORD, according to your word.

Breathe by Marie Barnett

This is the air I breathe;
This is the air I breathe;
Your holy presence living in me.

This is my daily bread;
This is my daily bread;
Your very word spoken to me.

We read a prayer from The Valley Vision (which reminded of our desperate need for Christ) followed by a time of silent confession.

This Breaks My Heart of Stone
– Words by Charles Wesley (1707-1788) with new music by Benji Pocta.

Look as when thy pit’ing eye,
was closed that we might live;
“Father,” at the point to die,
my Savior cried, “Forgive”.
Surely with that dying word,
He turns and looks and cries, “Tis done!”
O my loving, bleeding Lord,
this breaks my heart of stone.

Gloria by King’s Kaliedoscope

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!

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.

Here is Love – Words by William Rees (19th century); Music by Robert Lowry (1876); Additional chorus by Matt Redman

In Your truth You will direct me
by Your Spirit through Your Word;
And Your grace my need is meeting,
as I trust in You, my Lord.
