Call to Worship
But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
who are too little to be among the clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
one who is to be ruler in Israel,
whose coming forth is from of old,
from ancient days.
And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord,
in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great
to the ends of the earth.
And he shall be their peace.  Micah 5:2, 4-5

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign.
Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and shall call his name Immanuel.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shone.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 Isaiah 7:14, 9:2, 6

God Evermore – Sunday Song

We will be singing this song through Advent this year and into our study of Genesis.

This new version is by Paul Baloche and Aaron Shust with Fanny Crosby listed as a co-composer.

Light of eternity
Ancient of days
Glorious in holiness
Worthy of praise
Wonderful Counselor
We will adore
You have created us God evermore

We adore You
We adore You
Lifting praises to God evermore

Lord of the infinite
Author of time
Earth and the heavens sing Your grand design
Angels in worship
Rejoice and proclaim
You are the Holy One
Great is Your name

We adore You
We adore You
Lifting praises to God evermore
Hallelujah
For the Father’s love
Hallelujah
God evermore

Waves of the ocean deep
Bend to Your will
With Your commanding voice
Storms become still

All will acknowledge You
All will proclaim
You are the King of kings
Great is Your name

This song is based on the hymn by Fanny Crosby, “God of Eternity.” None of my old hymnals have it but I found it at Hymnary.org.

The original words were:
God of Eternity, Savior and King,
Help us to honor Thee, help while we sing;
Now may the clouds of night
Break into splendor bright,
Jesus, our life and light,
Our God and King!

God of eternity, Ancient of Days,
Glorious in majesty, Author of Praise;
Hear Thou our earnest call,
While at Thy feet we fall,
Jesus our all in all.
Our Lord and King!

God of eternity, Ruler divine,
Strength of the mighty hills,  all power is Thine;
Boundless Thy reign shall be,
Wondrous Thy victory,
Earth shall be fill’d with Thee,
Our Lord and King!

God of eternity, Love is Thy name,
God of the earth and sea, Thee we proclaim;
Love, thro’ Thine only Son,
Thy work of grace hath done;
O blessed Three in One,
Our Lord and King!
