Our Call to Worship was from Isaiah 63:7.

I will recount the steadfast love of the Lord,
the praises of the Lord,
according to all that the Lord has granted us,
and the great goodness to the house of Israel
that he has granted them according to his compassion,
according to the abundance of his steadfast love.

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!

David read from Isaiah 55:6-7.

Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways
and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Gloria by Chad Gardner

In an interview about his song, “Gloria,” Chad Gardner said, “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!

Our call to confession was from Isaiah 59:1-2.

Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save,
or his ear dull, that it cannot hear;
but your iniquities have made a separation
between you and your God,
and your sins have hidden his face from you
so that he does not hear.

O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus – Words: Samuel Francis (1834-1925), Music: Christine Cover and Greg Weile, Arrangement: The Crossing Music

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
vast, unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean
in its fullness over me!
Underneath me, all around me,
is the current of Thy love
Leading onward, leading homeward
to Thy glorious rest above!

We heard the assurance of our forgiveness from Isaiah 61:10a.

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord;
my soul shall exult in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,

O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing
by Charles Wesley (1739), Additional Lyrics and Music: The Crossing Music

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

Surrender by Marc James

I’m giving you my heart,
and all that is within,
I lay it all down for the sake of you my King.
I’m giving you my dreams,
I’m laying down my rights,
I’m giving up my pride for the promise of new life.

And I surrender all to You. All to You.
