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.

I Sing the Mighty Power of God – Words: Isaac Watts (1715), Music and Additional Chorus: Scott Johnson, Keith Scherer, Andrew Camp

There’s not a plant or flower below,
but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee
is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be,
Thou, God art present there.

His Loving-Kindness – Words: Samuel Medley (1782), Additional Words: David A. Cover, Music: Christine Cover and David A. Cover

Often I feel my sinful heart
prone from my Savior to depart;
but though I have him oft’ forgot,
His loving kindness changes not!
How precious is your steadfast love,
eternal Lord of all.
In you is life, is true delight;
I choose to rest in love.

David read Philippians 2:6-11 and lead us into a time of silent prayer where we confessed the pride that leads us away from Christ.

Who, being in very nature[a] God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death —
even death on a cross!


Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

He Holds All Things by David A. Cover and Patrick Miller

From kingdom dark to kingdom’s light,
Your blood has made a way.
The death of sin and hope of life,
Your mighty cross proclaims.
From Him, to Him, salvation is sustained.
Through Him, for Him, all things remade.

All Hail the Power of Jesus Name – Words by Edward Perronet (1780), Contemporary chorus by Judah Groveman

All hail the power of Jesus’ Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.

How Long to Save by Patrick K. Miller and David A. Cover

Beneath the sea, deliver me;
the current’s wake You take!
My sinful ways are drowning me,
cut the deep, set me free!

You are my Rock, my firm foundation;
apart from You I will fall.
You are my strength. my sure salvation!
I love You, Lord
