But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;
I had nearly lost my foothold.
Yet I am always with you;
You hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
And my portion forever.

Sunday Worship May 10

Here is our worship order from Sunday, May 10, 2015:

Call to Worship:

Oh sing to the Lord a new song,
for he has done marvelous things!
His right hand and his holy arm
    have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has made known his salvation;
he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation of our God.

O Worship The King — Sunday Song

O worship the King, all glorious above
And gratefully sing His wonderful love
Our shield and defender the Ancient of Days
Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise

O tell of His might, O sing of His grace.
Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form
And dark is His path on the wings of the storm

Thy 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 plains
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain

Frail children of dust and feeble as frail
In thee do we trust nor find Thee to fail
Thy mercies how tender how firm to the end
Our maker, defender, redeemer and friend

Sunday Worship May 3

Our songs flowed from Psalm 36, and the sermon text, which was John 1:19-34. Here’s our worship order from Sunday, May 3, 2015 (click on song titles to listen):

Call to Worship:
Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
    your judgments are like the great deep;
    man and beast you save, O Lord.

How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.

Psalm 36:5-9 (ESV)

Come Thou Fount
     come Thou fount of every blessing…

Praise the Father Praise the Son
     …under Your wings I will abide…
…now peace like water ever flows…

Agnus Dei
     …Lamb of God…

My Worth is Not In What I Own
     …wellspring of my soul…
…my ransom paid at the cross

Our pastor continued preaching in the gospel of John. The sermon was titled “Behold the Lamb of God” based on John 1:19-34.

Worship at the Lord’s Table:
Behold the Lamb (Communion Hymn)
     Behold the Lamb who bears our sin away, slain for us

Behold the Lamb – Sunday Song

Behold the Lamb who bears our sins away
Slain for us and we remember
The promise made that all who come in faith
Find forgiveness at the cross

So we share in this bread of life
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of peace
Around the table of the King

The body of our Savior Jesus Christ
Torn for you
Eat and remember
The words that heal the death that brings us life
Paid the price to make us one.

So we share in this bread of life
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of love
Around the table of the King

The blood that cleanses every stain of sin
Shed for you
Drink and remember
He drank death’s cup that all may enter in
To receive the life of God

So we share in this bread of life
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of grace
Around the table of the King

And so with thankfulness in faith we rise
To respond
And to remember
Our call to follow in the steps of Christ
As His body here on earth

As we share in His suffering
We proclaim Christ will come again
And we’ll join in the feat of heaven
Around the table of the King

This is a beautiful hymn for communion services and we’ve used it several times in different ways (all together, interspersed throughout communion). You can find the sheet music here or here.
