Songs and Scenes is a weekly blog review of songs, readings and prayers featured in The Crossing’s Sunday liturgy. Our good friend, Nate Herndon provided photos to offer a glimpse into Sunday morning life at The Crossing. You’ll also find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs when available.

1. Call to Worship (from Sojourn Community Church): Colossians 1:15-20

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

2. All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name – Words by Edward Perronet (1780), Contemporary chorus by Judah Groveman (based on a arrangement by Jaron and Katherine Kamon)

O that with yonder sacred throng
we at his feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song,
and crown him Lord of all.
We’ll join the everlasting song,
and crown him Lord of all. .

3. Call to Confession (from Sojourn Community Church)

4. With Melting Heart and Weeping Eyes – Words: John Fawcett (1740-1817), Music: Clint Wells

With melting heart and weeping eyes,
My guilty soul for mercy cries;
What shall I do, or whither flee,
To rid the vengeance due of me?
To rid the vengeance due of me?

Does not Thy sacred word proclaim,
salvation free in Jesus’ name?
To Him I look and humbly cry,
“Lord, save a wretch condemned to die.
Lord, save this wretch condemned to die.”

5. Assurance of Forgiveness: Hebrews 2:14-15

Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

6. Death in His Grave by John Mark McMillan

On friday a thief, on sunday a king
laid down in grief
but woke with the keys
of hell on that day.
First born of the slain
the man, Jesus Christ, laid
death in his grave.

7. Profession of Faith (adapted from The Worship Sourcebook): Isaiah 25:6a, 7-9

On this mountain the Lord Almighty…will destroy
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the sheet that covers all nations;
he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove his people’s disgrace
from all the earth.
The Lord has spoken.
In that day they will say,

“Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”

8. The Revelation of Jesus Christ by Cam Huxford

I saw a new heaven and a new earth,
for the first had passed away.
I saw a new city, Jerusalem;
a bride on her wedding day.
I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
“look at the dwelling place of God.”
He will dwell with them, they will be his people,
and He will be their God.

Wipe away every tear from our eyes.
Death will be no more.

9. Jude Doxology by Cam Huxford

Cam Huxford tells the story behind Ghost Ship’s adaptation of Jude Doxology, the new song we sang this weekend:

“Jude ends his letter with a doxology. “Doxo” means glory and “doxology” is a statement about the glory of God. But I think of it as he’s actually ending it with a song about the glory of Jesus Christ. He says, “to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forever.” So in Jude’s book he’s reminding us that Jesus is God, that Jesus is reigning. He always has been. He was reigning when the Israelites came out of Egypt. He’s reigning right now and He will reign forever. And so, this song is just singing that doxology that Jude wrote.”

Remember,
Jesus brought you out of Egypt.
Remember,
He has sought you as His people.
Remember,
He has saved your from your sin.
Remember, remember Him.

To the only God, our Savior Jesus Christ
be glory, honor, power and dominion,
before all time, and now, and ever more!
