1. O Praise The Name (Anástasis) by Marty Sampson, Benjamin Hastings & Dean Ussher

Then on the third at break of dawn,
the Son of heaven rose again.
O trampled death where is your sting?
The angels roar for Christ the King!

O praise the Name of the Lord our God.
O praise His Name forevermore.
For endless days we will sing Your praise,
Oh Lord, oh Lord, our God.

2. Scripture Reading: Revelation 15:3-4, Psalm 9:9-11, & Psalm 86:1-12

Leader: “Great and marvelous are your works,
O Lord God, Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
O King of the nations.
Who will not fear you, Lord,
and glorify
your name?”

All: Center my life on Your name.

You are a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.

Those who know your name trust in you,
for you have never forsaken those who seek you.

All: Center my life on Your name.

Teach me your way, LORD
that I may rely on your faithfulness;
give me an undivided heart,
that I may fear
your name.
I will praise you with all my heart…
and glorify your name forever.

All: Center my life on Your name.

3. New Song: Center My Life by Aaron Ivey and Brett Land

Turn my eyes to see you Jesus, in all Your glory, turn my eyes
Tune my heart to sing in wonder, of how You love me , tune my heart
Oh, my God, forever You reign
Here and now, hear the sound of Your Name

Jesus, there is none more beautiful than
Jesus, there is none more powerful
The risen Christ lifted high, Jesus now be glorified
Center my life on Your name

4. Prayer: Clothed In Christ (based on a prayer from The Valley of Vision)

Leader: Heavenly Father,

We know that Jesus,
who knew no sin became sin for us,
that we might become His righteousness,
clothed in white and called Your children.

All: Christ be all around me.

Leader: Wash our tears, and cover us in His righteousness.
Like the prodigal son, we run to a far country,
and return home, crying, “Father, forgive.”
But because of Your mercy, You still call us Your children
and clothe us in the clean garments of Christ.

All: Christ be all around me.

Leader: Every morning, help us to wear them
Every day, help us to work in them.
Every evening, help us to return in them.
May we be found in death in them,
and stand covered by them
when at last we come before Your throne
and see you face to face.

All: Christ be all around me.

Leader: May we never lose sight not only of
the exceeding weight of our sin
but also of the exceeding righteousness of salvation,
the exceeding glory of Christ,
the exceeding beauty of holiness,
and the exceeding wonder of his grace.

All: Christ be all around me.

Leader: We ask this in the name of the One who makes it possible, Jesus Christ.

5. Christ Be All Around Me by David Leonard, Jack Mooring, Leeland Mooring, and Leslie Jordan

Above and below me
Before and behind me
In every eye that sees me
Christ be all around me

Your life, Your death
Your blood was shed
For every moment
Every moment

6. This I Believe (Creed) by Ben Fielding and Matt Crocker, Arr. New Wine Worship

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

7. Trees Will Clap (Isaiah 55) by Andrew Camp, Patrick Miller, Scott Johnson, and Greg Wiele

Turn your ear, hear His voice,
“Sinners come, and rejoice,
through my Son, I set you free;
pardon won, upon my tree.”

With your Word, undeaf my ears,
“Seek ye God, while He’s near.”

Trees will clap, clap their hands,
mountains sing, oceans hymn.
Take your joy, fill the earth.
Lead us up and further in.
