2. 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.

3. Call to Worship: Isaiah 55:1-3, 12

“Is anyone thirsty?
Come and drink—
even if you have no money!
Come, take your choice of wine or milk—
it’s all free!
Why spend your money on food
that does not give you strength?
Why pay for food that does you no good?
Listen to me, and you will eat what is good.
You will enjoy the finest food.

“Come to me with your ears wide open.
Listen, and you will find life.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you.
I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David.

You will live in joy and peace.
The mountains and the hills
will burst into song,
and the trees of the field
will clap their hands!

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

“All who thirst, take and eat,
Without price, wine and wheat
Come and buy, to satisfy,
Yourself on love, Yourself on Me.”

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.

6. In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, Additional Lyrics and Music by Kristian Stanfill and Richard Kingsmore

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.

7. Prayer of Adoration: Ephesians 1:3-18

Almighty God and Father of
our Lord Jesus Christ,
We give you praise.
In your Son, Jesus Christ,
you have given us every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly realms.

We give you praise because
You chose us, before the world was made,
to be your holy people,
without fault in your sight.
You adopted us as your children in Christ.
You have set us free by his blood;
you have forgiven our sins.

We give you praise because
You have made known to us
your secret purpose,
to bring heaven and earth
into unity in Christ.
You have given us your Holy Spirit,
the seal and pledge of our inheritance.

All praise and glory be yours, O God;
For the richness of your grace,
for the splendor of your gifts,
for the wonder of your love.

Amen.

7. Empty Me Out by Josh White, Arrangement by Liz Vice

I died with You, was buried with You
The moment I believed.
I rose with You, ascended with You
into the Heavenlies.

Lord, it’s not me,
it’s you inside of me.
Jesus, you’re all
these eyes can see.
