Leader: Lift up your heads, you gates;
be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.

The LORD strong and mighty,
the LORD mighty in battle.

lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.

All: Who can stop the Lord, Almighty?

Leader: Who is he, this King of glory?
The LORD Almighty—
he is the King of glory.

All: Who can stop the Lord, Almighty?
Who can stop the Lord, Almighty?

3. The Lion and the Lamb by Brenton Brown, Leeland Mooring, and Brian Johnson

Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power and fighting our battles
Every knee will bow before Him

Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world, His blood breaks the chains
Every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Every knee will bow before Him

4. Call to Confession: Hebrews 12:1-3

Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.

we give you thanks and praise:
In your Son, Jesus Christ,
you have given us every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly realms.

before the world was made,
to be your holy people,
without fault in your sight.

Leader: In Christ, You adopted us into your own family
and now we’re your children!
You have set us free by his blood;
and all our sins are forgiven.

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

7. Salvation’s Tide by Matt Maher, Jason Ingram, Brett Younker, Kristian Stanfill

Your house, forever, undivided
All your sons and daughters one
At the cross we are united
Our hope is in the blood
Our hope is in your blood


Let the walls come down in Jesus name
Let the lost be found in Jesus name
Let the church arise to shine your light to the world
Shine your light

8. On Jordan’s Stormy Banks – Words by Samuel Stennett (1787) and contemporary music by Christopher Miner.

On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan’s fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.

I am bound, I am bound,
I am bound for the Promised land.
