Preparation for Worship

The Old Rugged Cross
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
1 Chronicles 29:11 (ESV)

Call to Worship

From Psalm 104 (ESV)

(As God’s Word calls us to worship, let’s shout these words to one another recognizing that our worship is a response to God’s gracious call.)
 
Leader:
Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment stretching out the heavens like a tent.
 
Response:
He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved. You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
 
Leader:
The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place that you appointed for them. You set a boundary that they may not pass, so that they might not again cover the earth.
 
Response:
O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
 
Leader:
May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works,
 
Response:
We will sing to the Lord as long as we live; we will sing praise to our God while we have our being. May our meditation be pleasing to Him, for we rejoice in the Lord
 
ALL:
BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL! PRAISE THE LORD!

Hymn of Praise #296

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name

All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all;
bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all.
 
Crown him, ye martyrs of your God,
who from his altar call;
extol the Stem of Jesse’s rod,
and crown him Lord of all;
extol the Stem of Jesse’s rod,
and crown him Lord of all.
 
Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race,
ye ransomed of the fall,
hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all;
hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all.
 
Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget
the wormwood and the gall,
go, spread your trophies at his feet;
and crown him Lord of all;
go, spread your trophies at his feet,
and crown him Lord of all.
 
Let every kindred, every tribe,
on this terrestrial ball,
to him all majesty ascribe,
and crown him Lord of all;
to him all majesty ascribe,
and crown him Lord of all.
 
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.

Prayer of Adoration

Song of Praise

From the Depths of Woe

From the depths of woe I raise to thee
the voice of lamentation.
Lord, turn a gracious ear to me
and hear my supplication.
 
If thou iniquities dost mark
our secret sins and misdeeds dark
O’ who shall stand before Thee? (echo)
O’ who shall stand before Thee? (echo)
 
To wash away the crimson stain
grace, grace alone availeth.
Our works, alas! are all in vain
in much the best life faileth.
 
No man can glory in thy sight
all must alike confess thy might
And live alone by mercy (echo)
And live alone by mercy (echo)
 
Therefore my trust is in the Lord
and not in my own merit.
On Him my soul shall rest, His Word,
upholds my fainting spirit.
 
His promised mercy is my fort,
my comfort and my sweet support
I wait for it with patience (echo)
I wait for it with patience (echo)
 
What though I wait the live-long night
and till the dawn appeareth.
My heart still trusteth in His might
it doubteth not nor feareth.
 
Do thus O ye of Israel’s seed
ye of the Spirit born indeed
And wait till God appeareth (echo)
And wait till God appeareth (echo)
 
Though great our sins & sore our woes
His grace much more aboundeth.
His helping love no limit knows
our utmost need it soundeth.
 
Our shepherd good and true is He
who will at last His Israel free
From all their sin and sorrow (echo)
From all their sin and sorrow (echo)

Song of Praise

Before the Throne of God Above

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
a great high Priest
whose name is Love
who ever lives and pleads for me.
 
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
a great high Priest
whose name is Love
who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands;
My name is written on His heart;
I know that
while in Heaven He stands;
no tongue can bid me thence depart;
no tongue can bid me thence depart.
 
When Satan tempts me to despair
and tells me of the guilt within,
upward I look and see Him there
who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died;
my sinful soul is counted free;
for God the just is satisfied;
to look on Him and pardon me;
to look on Him and pardon me.
 
Behold Him there the risen Lamb,
my perfect spotless righteousness,
the great unchangeable I AM,
the King of glory and of grace.
One in Himself I cannot die;
my soul is purchased by His blood;
my life is hid with Christ on high;
with Christ my Savior and my God;
with Christ my Savior and my God.
 
One in Himself I cannot die;
my soul is purchased by His blood;
my life is hid with Christ on high;
with Christ my Savior and my God;
with Christ my Savior and my God.

Prayer of Confession

Leader:
Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
 
Response:
Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
 
Leader:
For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
 
Response:
For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.
 
Leader:
I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity;
 
Response:
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

Comfort and Assurance of the Gospel

John 6:37-39 (ESV)
All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day.

Greeting of Peace

Philippians 4:7 (ESV)
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Congregational Prayer

Ephesians 6:18 (ESV)
[Pray] at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.

Worshiping the Lord with His Tithes and Our Offerings

Malachi 3:10 (ESV)
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of Hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.

So Good to Me

Confession of Faith

Westminster Confession of Faith 21.1

The light of nature showeth that there is a God, who hath lordship and sovereignty over all, is good, and doth good unto all, and is therefore to be feared, loved, praised, called upon, trusted in, and served, with all the heart, and with all the soul, and with all the might. But the acceptable way of worshiping the true God is instituted by himself, and so limited by his own revealed will, that he may not be worshiped according to the imaginations and devices of men, or the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representation, or any other way not prescribed in the Holy Scripture.

Acts 17:22-31 (ESV)

22 So Paul, standing in the midst of the Areopagus, said: “Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. 23 For as I passed along and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription: ‘To the unknown god.’ What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you. 24 The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, 25 nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. 26 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, 27 that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, 28 for

“‘In him we live and move and have our being’;

as even some of your own poets have said,

“‘For we are indeed his offspring.’

29 Being then God’s offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man. 30 The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, 31 because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”

Hymn of Response #2

O Worship the King

O worship the King all glorious above,
O gratefully sing his pow’r and his love;
our shield and Defender,
the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor
and girded with praise.
 
Your bountiful care
what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air;
it shines in the light;
it streams from the hills;
it descends to the plain;
and sweetly distils
in the dew and the rain.
 
Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
in you do we trust, nor find you to fail;
Your mercies how tender,
how firm to the end,
our Maker, Defender,
Redeemer, and Friend!
 
O measureless Might! Ineffable Love!
While angels delight
to hymn you above,
the humbler creation
though feeble their lays,
with true adoration
shall lisp to your praise

Benediction

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 (ESV)
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort our hearts and establish them in every good work and word.
