Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free;
To take away transgression and rule in equity.

4.Jesus Paid it All – Words: Elvina M. Hall (1865), Music: John T. Grape (1835-1915), Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

I hear the Savior say, “Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”
Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

5. The Apostle’s Creed

We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy universal church,

the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.

Amen.

6. 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.

Sunday worship, September 27

7. Rock of Ages – Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Based on an arrangement by Ascend the Hill

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

Sunday worship, September 27

8. In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty, Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

Sunday worship, September 27

9. Onward Go – Words: Henry K. White, Frances S. Fuller-Maitland (Verses 1-2), Christopher Wordsworth (Verse 3) Additional lyrics: David A. Cover & Patrick Miller. Music: Christine Cover and Greg Wiele

Oft in sorrow, oft in woe,
onward Christians, onward go.
Fight the fight, maintain the strife
strengthened by the Bread of Life.
Onward Christians, onward go;
join the war and face the Foe.
Know that much does yet remain,
dreary is the long campaign.
