Call to Worship | Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth. He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet. He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm! God reigns over the nations; God sits on his holy throne. The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; he is highly exalted! | Psalm 47:1-9

 

All Creatures of Our God and King

 

All creatures of our God and King

Life up your voice and with us sing

O praise Him, Alleluia


Thou burning sun with golden beam

Thou silver moon with softer gleam

O praise Him, O praise Him


Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia


Thou rushing wind that art so strong

Ye clouds that sail in Heaven along

O praise Him, Alleluia


Thou rising moon in praise rejoice

Ye lights of evening find a voice

O praise Him, O praise Him


Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia


Let all things their Creator bless

And worship Him in humbleness

O praise Him, Alleluia


Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son

And praise the Spirit, three in one

O praise Him, O praise Him


Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia


Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son

And praise the Spirit, three in one

O praise Him, O praise Him


Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia


Emmanuel, God Has Come

 

Eternally begotten Son

Immutable as God above

Creator of the universe

Became a child in humble birth

 

From heav’n he speaks, the earth his words

From heav’n he came, the Word on earth

From heav’n he came to seek his bride

To heav’n he’ll bring her to his side

 

Emmanuel, God has come

One with the Father and Spirit above

The infinite now the infant King

Comes to deliver from death’s sting

 

The Word was made flesh, we have seen

The glory, the truth, the grace he brings

Truly divine, now truly man

Now man can touch the great I Am

 

Emmanuel, God has come

One with the Father and Spirit above

The infinite now the infant King

Comes to deliver from death’s sting

 

We’re hid in the rock of ages

Sealed within a triune promise

The Son of God made one of us

That we might be made one with God

 

Emmanuel, God has come

Born under law, a cures for us

United in the Christ we die

United in the Christ we rise

 

 

Corporate Confession | Behold, you were angry, and we sinned; in our sins we have been a long time, and shall we be saved? We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. There is no one who calls upon your name, who rouses himself to take hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us, and have made us melt in the hand of our iniquities. But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. Be not so terribly angry, O LORD, and remember not iniquity forever. Behold, please look, we are all your people. | Isaiah 64:5b-9

 

Come and Stand Amazed

 

Come and stand amazed, you people

See how God is reconciled!

See his plans of love accomplished

See his gift, this newborn child

See the Mighty, weak and tender

See the Word who now is mute

See the Sovereign without splendor

See the Fullness destitute

 

See how humankind received him;

See him wrapped in swaddling bands

Who as Lord of all creation

Rules the wind by his commands

See him lying in a manger

Without sign of reasoning;

Word of God to flesh surrendered

He is wisdom's crown, our King

 

O Lord Jesus, God incarnate

Who assumed this humble form

Counsel me and let my wishes

To your perfect will conform

Light of life, dispel my darkness

Let your frailty strengthen me;

Let your meekness give me boldness

Let your burden set me free;

 

Assurance of Pardon | But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, but the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. | Titus 3:4-7

 

Sermon / Communion

 

We Will Feast in the House of Zion

 

We will feast in the house of Zion

We will sing with our hearts restored

He has done great things, we will say together

We will feast and weep no more


We will not be burned by the fire

He is the Lord, our God

We are not consumed by the flood

Upheld, protected, gathered up


We will feast in the house of Zion

We will sing with our hearts restored

He has done great things, we will say together

We will feast and weep no more


In the dark of night, before the dawn

My soul, be not afraid

For the promised morning, oh, how long?

Oh, God of Jacob, be my strength


We will feast in the house of Zion

We will sing with our hearts restored

He has done great things, we will say together

We will feast and weep no more


Every vow we've broken and betrayed

You are the Faithful one

And from the garden to the grave

Bind us together, bring shalom

We will feast in the house of Zion

We will sing with our hearts restored

He has done great things, we will say together

We will feast and weep no more

 

 

Benediction | Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. | Hebrews 13:20–21
