Praise to the Lord

Verse 1:

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!

O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!

All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near,

Praise Him in glad adoration.

Verse 2:

Praise to the Lord, Who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;

Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.

Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,

If with His love He befriend thee.

Chorus:

Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him

Verse 3:

Praise to the Lord, Who, when tempests their warfare are waging,

Who, when the elements madly around thee are raging,

Biddeth them cease, turneth their fury to peace,

Whirlwinds and waters assuaging

Verse 4:

Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him!

All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him.

Let the Amen sound from His people again,

Gladly for aye we adore Him

 

Confession
 Leader: Merciful God, in your gracious presence we confess our sin and the sin of this world. Although Christ is among us as our peace, we are a people divided against ourselves as we cling to the values of a broken world.
 Congregation: Lord, have mercy upon us; heal and forgive us.
 Leader: Selfish profit and pleasures we often pursue lay waste the land and pollute the seas. Our unrepentant fears and jealousies set neighbor against neighbor and nation against nation.
 Congregation: Lord, have mercy upon us; heal and forgive us. 
 Leader: We are prone to abuse Your good gifts of imagination and freedom, of intellect and reason, and turn them into bonds of oppression. 
 Congregation: Lord, have mercy upon us; heal and forgive us. 
 Leader: Set us free to serve you in the world as agents of your reconciling love in Jesus Christ. 
 Congregation: Amen. 

 

 

Hail the King

Verse 1:

We have been justified by faith through Jesus Christ

It's only by His grace we stand

Once bound by sin and shame, now slave to righteousness

Our faith perfected by His love

Chorus 1:

Praise the saviour, He has won

Our sin defeated through His blood

Now exalted, Jesus reigns

Hail the King, praise His name!

Verse 2:

While we were weak He died making us reconciled

To God for all eternal days

And even in this fading flesh our only hope and rest

Is found in faith that Jesus saves

Chorus 2:

We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God!

We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God!

We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God!

We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God!

Bridge:

Our hope of glory is found in the one who gives

Great joy to sing about the love that He poured out

Forever lifted high is our Saviour, Jesus Christ

The gift of God given in love

 

In Christ Alone

Verse 1:

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

Verse 2:

In Christ alone! - who took on flesh Fullness of God in helpless babe!

This Gift of love and righteousness Scorned by the ones He came to save

Till on that cross as Jesus died The wrath of God was satisfied -

For every sin on Him was laid: Here in the death of Christ I live

Verse 3:

There in the ground His body lay Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious Day Up from the grave He rose again!

And as He stands in victory Sin's curse has lost its grip on me

For I am His and He is mine - Bought with the precious blood of Christ

Verse 4:

No guilt in life no fear in death This is the power of Christ in me

From life's first cry to final breath Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell no scheme of man Can ever pluck me from His hand

Till he returns or calls me home Here in the power of Christ I'll stand!

 

A Mighty Fortress is our God

Verse 1:

A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;

Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:

For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;

His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,

On earth is not his equal.

Verse 2:

If we in our own strength confide, Our striving would be losing,

Were not the right Man on our side, The Man of God’s own choosing:

You ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;

The Lord of Hosts, His Name, from age to age the same,

And He must win the ba - ttle.

Verse 3:

And though this world, with devils filled, Should threaten to undo us,

We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us;

Chorus:

A mighty fortress is our God, His Kingdom is forever
