All Creatures of Our God and King  #115


All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us sing, Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou burning sun with golden beam, Thou silver moon with softer gleam,
O praise Him!  O praise Him!  Alleluia!  Alleluia! Alleluia!


Thou rushing wind that art so strong, 

Ye clouds that sail in heaven along, O praise Him! Alleluia!

Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice; ye lights of evening, find a voice!  

 O praise Him!  O praise Him!  Alleluia!  Alleluia! Alleluia!


Thou flowing water, pure and clear, 

Make music for thy Lord to hear, Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou fire so masterful and bright, that givest man both warmth and light, 

O praise Him!  O praise Him!  Alleluia!  Alleluia! Alleluia!

And all ye men of tender heart, 

Forgiving others, take your part, O sing ye, Alleluia!

Ye who long pain and sorrow bear, praise God and on Him cast your care, 

O praise Him!  O praise Him!  Alleluia!  Alleluia! Alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless, 

And worship Him in humbleness.  O praise Him! Alleluia!

Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son, 

and praise the Spirit, Three in One!  

O praise Him!  O praise Him!  Alleluia!  Alleluia! Alleluia!

Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord,
who stand by night in the house of the Lord!

He who made heaven and earth!

Psalm 134:1-2


The Prayer of Invocation


Amazing Grace  #460


Amazing grace! -- how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found, was blind, but now I see.


‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved;

How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed!


Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come;

‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.


The Lord has promised good to me, his Word my hope secures;

He will my shield and portion be, as long as life endures.


When we’ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun,

We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we’ve first begun.

“Amazing Grace,” Words: John Newton, Music: Traditional American melody

Corporate Confession of Sin

O Lord, great God, All holy; 

Father most gracious, filled with mercy and steadfast love, 

we are ashamed to come before You. 

For we have preferred the ways of this world to your ways. 

We have rebelled against you. We have rejected your holy laws. 

We are filled with arrogance and pride.  

O Lord, great God, all holy, filled with awe, 

Father, incline Your ear to our troubles. 

Hear us when we pour out our transgressions before You.
Forgive us; not on the the ground of our own righteousness,
but on the ground of Your great mercy, in the gift of your Son, Jesus Christ.

It is in His name that we pray, Amen.



Private Confession of Sin


The Assurance of Pardon

He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. When he was reviled, 

he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued 

entrusting himself to him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on

 the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have

 been healed.  For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the 

Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
1 Peter 2:22-25

The Peace
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another.
The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.  And also with you.

Leaning On The Everlasting Arms  #616

from Deuteronomy 33:27


What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms;

What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,

leaning on the everlasting arms.


Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms;

Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.



O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms;

O how bright the path grows from day to day,

leaning on the everlasting arms.


What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms?

I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,

leaning on the everlasting arms.

Hymn of Response

How Deep the Father's Love For Us


How deep the Father's love for us, how vast beyond all measure:

That He should give His only Son to make a wretch His treasure!

How great the pain of searing loss: the Father turns His face away,

As wounds which mar the Chosen One bring many sons to glory.


Behold the Man upon a cross, my sin upon His shoulders;

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there until it was accomplished.

His dying breath has brought me life; I know that it is finished!


I will not boast in anything – no gifts, no power, no wisdom – 

But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer.

But this I know with all my heart: His wounds have paid my ransom.

Doxology  #731

(Tune: “Old Hundredth” from the Genevan Psalter)


Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  Amen.



The Lord bless you and keep you; 

the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 

the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26
