Open the Eyes of My Heart by Paul Baloche

Open the Eyes of My Heart is based on Ephesians 1:18-21. As we sing we ask 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.

Our call to worship was from Psalm 9:1-2.

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

Worthy (You Are Worthy) by Matt Redman and Chris Tomlin

Worthy, you are worthy
much more worthy than I know.
I cannot imagine just how glorious You are.
And I cannot begin to tell
how deep a love You bring.
Oh Lord, my ears have heard of You
and now my eyes have seen.

David lead a reflection based on Psalm 84:1-4, 8, 10-12 and John 14: 1-3.

Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.

LORD Almighty,
blessed is the one who trusts in you.

Better is One Day by Matt Redman

Better is One Day reminds us of the amazing privilege of being in the presence of God and helps us to express our joy and satisfaction in Him.

How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord, Almighty.
My soul longs and even faints for You.
For here my heart is satisfied within Your presence,
I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings.

Here I am to Worship (chorus and bridge only) by Tim Hughes

Here I am to worship,
here I am to bow down,
here I am to say that You’re my God.
You’re altogether lovely,
altogether worthy,
altogether wonderful to me.

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.

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.
O praise Him, Alleluia,
my delight and my reward.
