3. Holy (Jesus, You Are) by Jason Ingram, Matt Redman, Jonas Myrin

Your name alone has power to raise us.
Your light will shine when all else fades.
Our eyes will look on Your glorious face
shining like the sun.
Who is like You, God?

You are holy, holy, holy
God most high and God most worthy.
You are holy, holy, holy
Jesus, You are. Jesus, You are.

5. Prayer of Lament: Psalm 38:9-10, 13-15, 21-22 (from the Open Sourcebook)

All my longings lie open before you, O Lord;
    my sighing is not hidden from you.
My heart pounds, my strength fails me;
    even the light has gone from my eyes.

I am like the deaf, who cannot hear,
    like the mute, who cannot speak;
I have become like one who does not hear,
   whose mouth can offer no reply.

LORD, I wait for you;
    you will answer, Lord my God.
LORD, do not forsake me;
    be not far from me, my God.
Come quickly to help me,
    my Lord my Savior.

6. Reading: Lamentations 3:21-24 (from Sojourn Community Church)

Yet this I call to mind
    and therefore I have hope:

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him.”

6. Sovereign Over Us by Aaron Keyes, Jack Mooring, and Bryan Brown

There is strength within the sorrow. There is beauty in our tears.
You meet us in our mourning with a love that casts out fear.
You are working in our waiting, sanctifying us.
When beyond our understanding You’re teaching us to trust.

Your plans are still to prosper.
You have not forgotten us.
You’re with us in the fire and the flood.
Faithful forever, perfect in love,
You are sovereign over us.

7. Words of Assurance: Psalm 91:14-15 (adapted from The Open Sourcebook)

The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
    I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer;

When he calls to me, I will answer him;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.
    and show them my salvation.

8. See the Conqueror Mounts in Triumph – Words: Christopher Wordsworth (1862); Music: Christine Cover, David A. Cover, Rhett Johnson, Andrew Luley, Ryan Ponder, and Greg Wiele

Who is this that comes in glory, with the trump of jubilee?
Lord of battles, God of armies, He has gained the victory.
He who on the cross did suffer, He who from the grave arose,
He has vanquished sin and Satan, He by death has spoiled His foes.

9. Communion Song: Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery by Matt Papa, Matt Boswell, and Michael Bleeker

Come behold the wondrous mystery
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e’er restrain Him
Praise the Lord; He is alive!

What a foretaste of deliverance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when he comes

10. Communion Song: Unimaginable by Kristen Camp, Scott Johnson, Andrew Luley, & David A. Cover

No eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
What God has prepared for those who love him.
What God has prepared for those who love him.

11. Communion Song: 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.
