Songs and Scenes from Sunday, October 6, 2013

Songs and Scenes is a weekly blog review of songs, readings and prayers featured in The Crossing’s Sunday service liturgy. Unfortunately, we don’t have photos this week but, as always, you’ll still find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs when available.

1. He is Yahweh – by Dean Salyn.

Who is moving on the waters?
Who is holding up the moon?
Who is peeling back the darkness
with the burning light of noon?

Who is standing on the mountains?
Who is on the earth below?
Who is bigger than the heavens
and the lover of my soul?

Creator God, He is Yahweh.
The Great I AM, He is Yahweh.
The Lord of All, He is Yahweh.

2. Scripture Reading: Philippians 2:6-11

Who, being in very nature 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 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.

3. Jude Doxology by Cam Huxford

Cam Huxford tells the story behind Ghost Ship’s adaptation of Jude Doxology, the new song we sang this weekend:

“Jude ends his letter with a doxology. “Doxo” means glory and “doxology” is a statement about the glory of God. But I think of it as he’s actually ending it with a song about the glory of Jesus Christ. He says, “to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forever.” So in Jude’s book he’s reminding us that Jesus is God, that Jesus is reigning. He always has been. He was reigning when the Israelites came out of Egypt. He’s reigning right now and He will reign forever. And so, this song is just singing that doxology that Jude wrote.”

Remember,
Jesus brought you out of Egypt.
Remember,
He has sought you as His people.
Remember,
He has saved your from your sin.
Remember, remember Him.

To the only God, our Savior Jesus Christ
be glory, honor, power and dominion,
before all time, and now, and ever more!

4. Words of Assurance: Isaiah 25:7-9

The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove his people’s disgrace
from all the earth.
The Lord has spoken.
In that day they will say,

“Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”

5. The Revelation of Jesus Christ by Cam Huxford

I saw a new heaven and a new earth,
for the first had passed away.
I saw a new city, Jerusalem;
a bride on her wedding day.
I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
“look at the dwelling place of God.”
He will dwell with them, they will be his people,
and He will be their God.

Wipe away every tear from our eyes.
Death will be no more.

6. One Redeemer – by David A. Cover, Christine Cover and Patrick K. Miller

Jesus, my soul’s Savior,
the great story’s One Redeemer.
