1. 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.

2. Scripture Reading: Psalm 66:1-4

Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
Sing the glory of his name;
make his praise glorious.
Say to God,
“How awesome are your deeds!
So great is your power
that your enemies cringe before you.
All the earth bows down to you;
they sing praise to you,
they sing the praises of your name.”

3. How Great Thou Art by Stuart K. Hine

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed:

Then sings my soul my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

4. Confession: Psalm 51:1-6, 10-12, 15

Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your steadfast love;
according to your abundant mercy
blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin.

For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.
Against you, you alone, have I sinned,
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are justified in your sentence
and blameless when you pass judgment.
Indeed, I was born guilty,
a sinner when my mother conceived me.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence,
and do not take your holy spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and sustain in me a willing spirit.

O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.

5. Day by Day by Adam Skatula, Brian Eichelberger, Nate Furtado, Spencer Abbot, Zach Bolen

What I once desired for is not what I desire more
Heart of stone turned into flesh
Love, joy, peace taking over the mess
It’s all I’m wanting day by day

No, I’m not who I was, now I am who I am
A sinner saved, a stumbling saint
Still I’m never alone, He’s alive in my bones
The ghost of God sanctifies

Day by day by day.

6. Assurance of Forgiveness: Jeremiah 33:8, Psalm 32:1-2

I will cleanse them from all the guilt of their sin against me,
and I will forgive all the guilt of their sin and rebellion against me.

Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
Happy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

7. My Heart is Glad (Psalm 16) by Aaron Strumpel and The Crossing Music

I have set the LORD always before me;
because He is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
Keep me safe, my God;
I have come to You,
I have come to You for refuge.

Is it any wonder that my heart is glad?
Is it any wonder that my heart is glad?
I rejoice.

8. Abide by Liz Vice

Jesus we will throw away our lives to follow you
Struggling in your strength, resting in your truth
Jesus, you’re so beautiful, you give vision to the blind
You in us, the hope of glory, in you we will abide
