1. 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.

2. Almighty God by Leslie Jordan, David Leonard, and Sandra McCracken

Almighty God, to you all hearts are open;
We long for more than what this world provides. 
No shallow spring will ever satisfy us; 
Your river deep floods over everything.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

3. New Song: Christ is Coming! Let Creation – Words: John R. Mac­duff (1853),
Add. Words and Music: Matt Scott

Christ is coming! Let creation
From her groans and travail cease;
Let the glorious proclamation
Hope restore and faith increase.

Come on down! Come on down!
Haste that joyous jubilee!

4. Communion Song: Enough by Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio

All of You is more than enough
for all of me,
for ev’ry thirst and ev’ry need.
You satisfy me with your love,
and all I have in You
is more than enough.

5. Communion Song: Morning Star – Words: Isaac Watts (18th cent.); Add. Words: David A. Cover;
Music: Christine Cover, Greg Wiele, & Latifah Phillips

Come all ye hungry, starving souls,
that feed upon the wind,
and vainly strive with earthly toils
to fill an empty mind.

Eternal Wisdom has prepared
a soul-reviving feast;
and bids your longing appetites
the rich provision taste.

6. Communion Song: We Will Feast in the House of Zion by Sandra McCracken and Joshua Moore

We will feast in the house of Zion
We will sing with our hearts restored
He has done great things, we will say together
We will feast and weep no more

Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed
You are the Faithful one
And from the garden to the grave
Bind us together, bring shalom.
