SONG

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou, burning sun with golden beam
Thou, silver moon with softer gleam
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!

All the redeemed washed by His blood
Come and rejoice in His great love
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Christ has defeated every sin
Cast all your burdens now on Him
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

He shall return in pow’r to reign
Heaven and earth will join to say
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Then who shall fall on bended knee?
All creatures of our God and King
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

SONG

All my days, I will sing this song of gladness,
give my praise to the Fountain of delights.
For in my helplessness you heard my cry,
and waves of mercy poured down on my life.

I will trust in the cross of my Redeemer;
I will sing of the blood that never fails,
of sins forgiven, of conscience cleansed,
of death defeated and life without end.

Beautiful Saviour, Wonderful Counsellor,
clothed in majesty, Lord of history,
You’re the Way, the Truth, the Life.
Star of the Morning. Glorious in holiness.
You’re the Risen One, Heaven’s Champion,
and You reign, You reign over all.

I long to be, where the praise is never ending;
yearn to dwell where the glory never fades,
where countless worshipers will share one song;
and cries of “worthy” will honour the Lamb!

Ekids leave us go to their groups.

 

PRAYERS led by Gemma Adam

 

SONG

There is no other name
In heaven can be found
Through whom we are redeemed
Through whom your grace abounds
No other name can save, but Jesus Christ our Lord.

My joy in sorrowʼs tears
My strength to cast out fears
No other name but Jesus, Jesus.
My hope in darkest night
My broken soulʼs delight
No other name but Jesus, Jesus.

There is no victory
But Jesus crucified
No other cure for sin
But that our Saviour died.
No other hope we have
But that he rose again!

No other throne endures
No other song remains
But ʻWorthy is the Lamb
Who was for sinners slain
When every knee shall bow
And tongue confess you are Lord,
You are Lord!

My joy in sorrowʼs tears
My strength to cast out fears
No other name but Jesus, Jesus.
My hope in darkest night
My broken soulʼs delight
No other name, no other name!

My joy in sorrowʼs tears…

 

BIBLE READING by Rachel Koernich

Romans 5: 1 – 11

5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

 

BIBLE TALK by Rich Adam

 

SONGS

When peace like a river, flows by my way,
or when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, you have taught me to say:
it is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well (it is well), with my soul (with my soul).
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan may shake me,
though trials may come,
let this sweet assurance control;
that Christ has regarded my helpless state
and has shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

O Lord, it’s for you, for your coming we wait.
The sky, not the grave, is our goal.
The trumpet shall sound, and the Lord shall come down
Blesséd hope, blesséd rest of my soul!

 

The greatest day in history
death is beaten, you have rescued me.
Sing it out, Jesus is alive!
The empty cross, the empty grave
life eternal, you have won the day.
Shout it out, Jesus is alive! He’s alive!

Oh happy day, happy day,
you washed my sin away.
Oh happy day, happy day,
I’ll never be the same –
forever I am changed.

When I stand, in that place,
free at last, meeting face to face.
I am yours, Jesus you are mine.
Endless joy, perfect peace,
earthly pain finally will cease.
Celebrate, Jesus is alive! He’s alive!

Oh what a glorious day,
what a glorious way
that You have saved me.
Oh what a glorious day,
what a glorious name –
you’re Lord and Saviour.
