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

Our call to worship was Psalm 145:1-7.

I will exalt you, my God and King,
and praise your name forever and ever.
I will praise you every day;
yes, I will praise you forever.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
No one can measure his greatness.
Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts;
let them proclaim your power.
I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor
and your wonderful miracles.
Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue;
I will proclaim your greatness.
Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness;
they will sing with joy about your righteousness.

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.

Holy (Jesus, You Are) by Jason Ingram, Matt Redman, Jonas Myrin

Your name alone has power to raise us.
Your light will shine when all else fades.
Our eyes will look on Your glorious face,
shining like the sun.

You are holy, holy, holy
God most high and God most worthy.
You are holy, holy, holy
Jesus, You are. Jesus, You are.

Our call to confession was from Psalm 51:15-17.

O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

With Melting Heart and Weeping Eyes – Words: John Fawcett (1740-1817), Music: Clint Wells

With melting heart and weeping eyes,
My guilty soul for mercy cries;
What shall I do, or whither flee,
To rid the vengeance due of me?
To rid the vengeance due of me?

Does not Thy sacred word proclaim,
salvation free in Jesus’ name?
To Him I look and humbly cry,
“Lord, save a wretch condemned to die.
Lord, save this wretch condemned to die.”

We heard the assurance of our forgiveness in a reading based on Colossians 2:13-14.

When you were dead in your sins…, God made you alive with Christ.

He forgave us all our sins, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands;
He took it away, nailing it to the cross.

Although our sins overwhelm us,
the grace and mercy of God far surpasses them.

In Jesus Christ, our sins are forgiven
and God restores us to righteousness and life!

Thanks be to God. Amen.

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

This song from Sovereign Grace Music enabled us to sing of Christ’s soul restoring and life transforming power in our lives. Eric McAllister, who retuned this hymn had this to say about the song:
“I set the song in a minor key, aware that the battle to remember the scriptural truths contained in these verses is a battle! But how sweet it is to contend with our souls knowing that the object of our trust is Jesus Christ. He is our unique and perfectly qualified Great High Priest, and our assurance that we do not fight alone.”
He ever lives above 

For me to intercede 
His all redeeming love 

His precious blood to plead 

His blood atoned for every race 

His blood atoned for every race 

And sprinkles now the throne of grace 

O my soul, arise 

Behold the risen Christ 

Your Great High Priest 

Your spotless sacrifice

Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken – Words: Henry Lyte (1824) Music: Attr. Mozart, Alt. Bill Moore

Kevin Twit, while introducing “Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken” at an Indelible Grace hymn sing, provided some insight into Henry Lyte’s (the author of this hymn) life.

“Henry Lyte… had a wretched father. His father and mother split up, he got sent off to boarding school, his father remarried. From then on he would write letters to his own son and he would not sign them, “Your father,” but he would sign them, “Your uncle.” In other words, Henry’s father never let him call him “father” again. And yet every one of his hymns… the father image for him is a warm and comforting one. Which… shows the power and the Gospel and the scriptures to deconstruct and reconstruct something so basic as what does it mean to have a father.”

Jesus, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow Thee.
Destitute, despised, forsaken,
Thou from hence my all shall be.
Perish every fond ambition,
All I’ve sought or hoped or known.
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heaven are still my own.
