CALL TO WORSHIP — from Psalm 111
Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
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.
He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and merciful.
he remembers his covenant forever.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy;
    they are established forever and ever,
He sent redemption to his people;
he has commanded his covenant forever.
Holy and awesome is his name!
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all those who practice it have a good understanding.
    His praise endures forever!

CALL TO WORSHIP — from Isaiah 35
The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad;
the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus;
it shall blossom abundantly
and rejoice with joy and singing.
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf unstopped;
then shall the lame man leap like a deer,
and the tongue of the mute sing for joy.
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return
and come to Zion with singing;
everlasting joy shall be upon their heads;
they shall obtain gladness and joy,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
“Arise, shine, for your light has come,

Carol of Joy

I thought I would kick off December by sharing a Christmas song and what better way than with this lovely choral piece. I think it’s musically too complex for congregational singing but it is gorgeous and the words communicate so clearly that Jesus came to break the curse of sin and redeem a fallen world. The first two verses tell of his incarnation. The third verse calls to those without Christ, those “lonely, laden, forlorn” now. He can be your Savior now.

Carol of Joy
Green leaves all fallen, withered and dry;
brief sunset fading, dim winter sky;
lengthening shadows, dark closing in;
then through the stillness, carols begin.
O fallen world, to you is the song!
Death holds you fast, and night tarries long.
Jesus is born, your curse to destroy;
sweet to your ears, a carol of joy!

Pale moon ascending, solemn and slow;
cold, barren hillside shrouded in show.
Deep, empty valley, veiled by the night;
hear angel music, hopeful and bright.
O fearful world, to you is the song!
Peace with your God, and pardon for wrong.
Tidings for sinners, burdened and bound;
carol of joy, a Savior is found!

Earth wrapped in sorrow, lift up your eyes!
Thrill to the chorus filling the skies,
Look up, sadhearted! Witness God’s love;
join in the carol swelling above!
O friendless world, to you is the song!
All heaven’s joy to you may belong!
You who are lonely, laden, forlorn;
Now unto you, a Savior is born.

Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.
And suddenly there was with the angel
    a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!

~ Psalm 29:1-2, Luke 2:13-14
