Call to Worship
Gathering Song (Please Stand)
You’re the Lion of Judah You’re the Lion of Judah, the Lamb who was slain,
You ascended to heaven and evermore will reign.
At the end of the age when the earth You reclaim
You will gather the nations before you. And the eyes of all men will be fixed On the Lamb who was crucified,
With wisdom and mercy and justice
You’ll reign at Your Father’s side.
Chorus: And the angels will cry “Hail the Lamb Who was slain for the world, rule in pow’r.” And the earth will reply, “You shall reign As the King of all kings and the Lord of all lords.” There’a a shield in our hand and a sword at our side;
There’s a fire in our spirits that cannot be denied,
‘Cause the Father has told us, for these You have died,
For the nations who gather before You. And the ears of all men need to hear Of the Lamb who was crucified, Who descended to hell, yet was raised up To reign at His Father’s side. Chorus (repeat)
Corporate Prayer of Confession God of our salvation, we marvel that you sent your Son into the world that we might become your children. Yet we confess that we often rebel against you and your ways. We fall back into a spirit of fear; we turn toward false saviors. Forgive and heal us, we pray. Help us, once again, to turn away from all that is false and to turn to you. Help us to hear and embrace the identity, the promise, and the calling you give to us as your dearly beloved children; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Words of Encouragement The Lord is just in all his ways, and kind in all his doings. The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desire of all who fear him; he also hears their cry, and saves them.

Sermon Take A Sad Song and Make it Better
Song of Reflection
Jesus, Priceless Treasure Jesus, priceless treasure, Source of purest pleasure, truest Friend to me. Long my heart hath panted, ‘Til it well-nigh fainted, thirsting after Thee.
Thine I am O, spotless Lamb. I will suffer naught to hide thee,
Ask for naught beside thee, ask for naught beside thee.
In Thy strength I rest me, If Thy arms protect me, who can reach me here? Though the earth be shaking, Every heart be quaking, God dispels our fear.
Sin and hell and conflict fell, with their heaviest storms assail us.
Jesus will not fail us, Jesus will not fail us.
Banished is our sadness For the Lord of gladness, Jesus, enters in. Those who love the Father, Though the storms may gather, still have peace within.
Yea, whate’er we here must bear, still in Thee lies purest pleasure,
Jesus, priceless treasure, Jesus, priceless treasure. Yea, whate’er we here must bear, still in Thee lies purest pleasure, Jesus, priceless treasure,Jesus, priceless treasure.
Benediction Parting Song of Praise
I Love You Lord I love You, Lord, and I lift my voice, To worship You, oh my soul, rejoice! Take joy, my King, in what You hear, Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear.
