1. Call to Worship: Behold Our God by Jonathan Baird, Meghan Baird and Stephen Altrogge

Who has felt the nails upon His hands,
bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave.
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign.

Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come, let us adore Him.

2. Holy, Holy, Holy – Words by Reginald Heber (1783-1826), Music: Nicaea, John B. Dykes

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

3. Almighty God by Leslie Jordan, David Leonard, and Sandra McCracken

Almighty God to you all hearts are open
Searching all our thoughts and anxious fears
Wash us in the fountain of your mercy
Come with your light, we cannot hide from you

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

5. This I Believe (Creed) by Ben Fielding and Matt Crocker

I believe in God our Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus

6. Awakening by Chris Tomlin and Reuben Morgan

In our hearts Lord, in this nation, awakening.
Holy Spirit, we desire awakening.

For You and You alone awake my soul;
Awake my soul and sing.
For the world You love Your will be done;
Let Your will be done in me.
