Gathering Song (Please Stand)
The Father’s Love How has the sinner been forgiven, How has the rebel been made clean, Or blinded eyes been made to see? How have the orphans been adopted,
Who hated Your love and ran from grace,
Despised and rejected all Your ways?
Chorus: How wonderful the Father’s love,
The Father’s love for us That He would send His only Son To come and rescue us. He has saved us, called us blameless,
Guides us now and will sustain us. Oh how wonderful the Father’s love.
Your mercy floods our lives with kindness.
Your grace has colored all we see, And You have promised not to leave. You freely give Your Spirit to us, So we can be sure we’re sons of God, And rest in the hope of what’s to come. Chorus (repeat)
Corporate Prayer of Confession Dear Father, most kind and most generous. We come to you as your children because we need you and want to be near you. We come to you as our Lord and our God because we are in awe of you and want to worship you. We come to you in the name of Jesus because you have promised to forgive our many wrongs if we recognize our need and rely on his righteousness and not our own. We praise you, O Father of glory and grace. In the name of your son we pray. Amen
Words of Encouragement God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5: 21

Song of Reflection
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. My name is graven on His hands, My name is written on His heart; I know that while in Heav’n 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 my 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 with 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.
