All Hail the Power of Jesus Name – Words by Edward Perronet (1780), Contemporary chorus by Judah Groveman (based on a arrangement by Jaron and Katherine Kamon)

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.

Ashley read from Romans 11:33-36.

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

“For who has known the mind of the Lord,
or who has been his counselor?”
“Or who has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”

For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

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.

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

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.”

After a time of silent confession, we heard the assurance of our forgiveness in a reading based on 1 Timothy 1:15 and 1 Peter 2:24.

This saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance,
Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross,
that we might be dead to sin,
and alive to all that is good.

This is the good news of the gospel.

In Jesus Christ we are forgiven
and have new life in His name.
Thanks be to God!

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

Psalm 40:4-4a by Scott Johnson, Ashley Gross, Patrick Miller and Andrew Camp

Blessed in the one who makes the Lord his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
to those who go astray after a lie!

You have multiplied, O Lord, my God
the wonders you have done,
the things you planned for us.
None can compare with you.
