Call to Worship

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
the world and those who dwell in it!
Let the rivers clap their hands;
let the hills sing for joy together
before the Lord, for he comes
to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with equity.                                               Psalm 98:4, 7-9

Praise & Adoration
Joy to the World
Angels from the Realms of Glory

Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
ALL: Great are the works of the Lord,
    studied by all who delight in them.

Full of splendor and majesty is his work,
and his righteousness endures forever.
ALL: He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered;
    the Lord is gracious and merciful.

He sent redemption to his people;
he has commanded his covenant forever.
Holy and awesome is his name!
ALL: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
    all those who practice it have a good understanding.
    His praise endures forever!                                                             Psalm 111

Great is Thy Faithfulness
How Deep the Father’s Love For Us

Closing Song
Go Tell it On the Mountain

Advent Hymn

I’m excited to add this song to our services this Advent.  True to its title, it speaks beautifully of the past, present, and future of our worship in Advent.  Advent means “coming.” It’s that special time of the year when we remember Christ’s first coming into the world and look forward to the time when He will come again.  We also praise and worship God for His Advent in our hearts now.

Here’s the original recording by Christy Nockels

Advent Hymn
Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the everlasting Light,
The Sun of Righteousness arise,
And triumph o’er these shades of night.

Come, Thou long-awaited One,
In the fullness of Your love,
And loose this heart bound up by shame,
And I will never be the same.

So, here I wait in hope of You,
All my soul’s longing through and through.
Dayspring from on high, be near,
And Daystar in my heart appear.

Dark and cheerless is the morn,
Until Your love in me is born.
And joyless is the evening song,
Until Emmanuel has come.

We will probably “straighten out” the rhythms like this video to make it easier for the congregation.
