CALL TO WORSHIP

PSALM 63
My Soul Thirsts for You
A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

1 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
3 Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
4 So I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.

5 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
6 when I remember you upon my bed,
and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
7 for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
8 My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

I WILL CALL UPON THE LORD  by Michael O’Shields
   (men begin each verse, women echo)
I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised.
So shall I be saved from mine enemies.
   (everyone)
The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock,
and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
The Lord liveth, and blessed be the Rock,
and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

SOUL ON FIRE by Third Day
God, I’m running for Your heart, I’m running for Your heart
Till I am a soul on fire.

Lord, I’m longing for Your ways. I’m waiting for the day
When I am a soul on fire, till I am a soul on fire.

Lord, restore the joy I had, and I have wandered, bring me back!
In this darkness, lead me through until all I see is You!

Lord, let me burn for You again, let me return to You again!
And, Lord, let me burn for You again, let me return to You again!

God, I’m running for Your heart, I’m running for Your heart
Till I am a soul on fire, till I am a soul on fire, till I am a soul on fire,

GOOD, GOOD FATHER by Patt Barrett and Anthony Brown
I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think You’re like,
But I’ve heard the tender whisper of love in the dead of night.
You tell me that You’re pleased, and that I’m never alone.

You’re a good, good Father;
It’s who You are, it’s who You are, it’s who You are.
And I’m loved by You;
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am.

I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide,
But I know we’re all searching for answers only You provide.
Because You know just what we need before we say a word.

You are perfect in all of Your ways. You are perfect in all of Your ways.
You are perfect in all of Your ways to us.

Love so undeniable, I can hardly speak.
Peace so unexplainable, I can hardly think.
As You call me deeper still, as You call me deeper still,
As You call me deeper still into love, love, love.

RESPONSE TO THE WORD

BLESSED BE YOUR NAME by Matt Redman
Blessed be Your name in the land that is plentiful,
Where Your streams of abundance flow. Blessed be your name!
Blessed be Your name when I’m found in the desert place,
Though I walk through the wilderness. Blessed be your name!
Every blessing You pour out I’ll turn back to praise.
When the darkness closes in, Lord, still I will say:

“Blessed be the name of the Lord, blessed be Your name.
Blessed be the name of the Lord, blessed be Your glorious name.”

Blessed be Your name when the sun’s shining down on me,
When the world’s all as it should be. Blessed be your name!
Blessed be Your name on the road marked with suffering,
Though there’s pain in the offering. Blessed be Your name!

You give and take away, you give and take away.
My heart will choose to say, “Lord, blessed be Your name!”

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER

 

VICTORY IN JESUS (HYMN 496) by E. M. Bartlett, 1939
I heard an old, old story, how a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary to save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning, of His precious blood’s atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and won the victory.

O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him and all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory, beneath the cleansing flood.

I heard about His healing, of His cleansing pow’r revealing.
How He made the lame to walk again and caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, “Dear Jesus, come and heal my broken spirit,”
And somehow Jesus came and brought to me the victory.

I heard about a mansion He has built for me in glory.
And I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing, and the old redemption story,
And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.
