1. Call to Worship: Praise the Lord, All Praise and Blessing
– Words: Joel Blomqvist (1840-1930) Music: Matt Scott

Praise the Lord, all praise and blessing,
render to his mighty name;
Thank him ever for His goodness,
now and evermore the same.
Now and evermore the same.


He created earth and heaven,
deepest sea and all therein;
Smallest creature, highest being,
let your anthems now begin.
Let your anthems now begin.

Everything that you have made is beautiful.
Everything that you have made is good.

2. Rejoice by Dustin Kensrue and Stuart Townend

All our sickness, all our sorrows,
Jesus carried up the hill.
He has walked this path before us.
He is walking with us still.
Turning tragedy to triumph,
turning agony to praise;
There is blessing in the battle
so take heart and stand amazed.

Rejoice! When you cry to Him He hears your voice.
He will wipe away your tears.
Rejoice! In the midst of suffering
He will help you sing.
Rejoice!

3. Scripture Reading: Psalm 103:2-5; 11-13

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.

4. King of My Heart by John Mark McMillan and Sarah McMillan

Let the King of my heart
be the mountain where I run
The Fountain I drink from
Oh He is my Song
Let the King of my heart
be the shadow where I hide
the randsom for my life
Oh He is my Song

When the night is holding onto me
God is holding on.

5. Scripture Reading: Psalm 34:1-3; 8-10

I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.


Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!


Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
Fear the Lord, you his godly people,
for those who fear him will have all they need.

Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry,
but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.

6. Gloria by Chad Gardner

I sought for the King and he heard my cry
and delivered me from my lowly fears
those who look to Him will be radiant
and all their faces will be unashamed.

Gloria! Gloria!
Gloria!, Gloria!

7. Divine Invitation by Steve Hindalong and Eric Owyoung, Arrangement: Page CXVI

We are all here to find
the place where our restless souls will be free.
We were all made to see.
our hearts could not rest until found in Thee.

In this divine invitation we find Your embrace
and in our deep adoration see the light of Your face.
In this divine invitation we all find the place
for our souls where the longings were born long ago.
