1. Call to Worship: Psalm 86:8-10

There is none like you, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.

All the nations you have made shall come
and bow down before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
For you are great and do wondrous things,
you alone are God.

2. Behold Our God by Jonathan Baird, Meghan Baird and Stephen Altrogge

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?
Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come, let us adore Him.

3. Holy, Holy, Holy (Lord, God Almighty) – Words by Reginald Heber (1783-1826), Music: Nicaea, John B. Dykes (1861)

Holy, Holy, Holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see:
Only Thou art holy, there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity..

4. O Help My Unbelief – Words: Isaac Watts, Music: Justin Smith. Adapted from an arrangement by Indelible Grace

How sad our state by nature is!
our sin, how deep it stains!
and Satan binds our captive minds
Fast in his slavish chains.
But there’s a voice of sov’reign grace,
sounds from the sacred word:
“O, ye despairing sinners come,
and trust upon the Lord.”

5. Call to Confession: Isaiah 30:15, 18

This is what the Sovereign LORD,
the Holy One of Israel, says:

“In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it.”

Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you;
therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.
For the LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!

6. Prayer of Confession (from The Open Sourcebook):

Father, you invite us in your word to rest and trust in your sovereign care.
But we cling to control, we trust our worries more than your word and we
fill our minds, homes, and relationships with stress.

Father, forgive us, and help our unbelief

Lord Jesus, you invite us in the gospel to find rest for our souls in
following you, but we prefer being tied to our burdens, refusing the easy
load you promise.

Christ, forgive us, and help our unbelief.

Spirit of God, you have filled our hearts with divine grace. You open our
eyes to the glory of the gospel, and offer us the peace of Christ.

Spirit of God, have mercy on us, help us in our unbelief and fill us with
faith in God’s word and the peace of Christ.

7. Assurance of Forgiveness(from The Open Sourcebook) based on Psalm 16:

I keep the Lord before me always.
Because he is close by my side,
I will not be shaken.

So I rejoice and am glad.
Even my body has hope,
because you will not leave me in the grave.
You will not let your holy one see corruption.
You will teach me how to live a holy life.
Being with you will fill me with joy;
at your right hand I will find pleasure forever.

8. Trees Will Clap (Isaiah 55) by Andrew Camp, Scott Johnson, Patrick Miller 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.

9. Communion Song: Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Words by Robert Robinson (1758), Music: NETTLETON, Wyeth’s Re­po­si­to­ry of Sac­red Mu­sic, Part Se­cond by John Wy­eth (1813)

Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Here by Thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home..
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood;

10. Communion Song: Behold the Lamb of God by Cam Huxford

I’ve heard of you, how you hung the stars,
though you hold all things, your hands are scarred.
I’ve heard of you, how you laid the earth
but you spilled your blood into this dirt.
I’ve heard so many things, but now I see.

Behold the Lamb Of God, who takes away our sin.
?Behold the Lamb Of God, now fix your eyes on him.

11. Communion Song: Revelation Song by Jennie Lee Riddle

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
holy, holy is he.
Sing a new song to Him who sits on
heaven’s mercy seat.

Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord, God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come.
