CALL TO WORSHIP

PSALM 131NRSV

APOSTLES' CREED

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

   creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

     who was conceived by the Holy Spirit

     and born of the virgin Mary.

     He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

     was crucified, died, and was buried;

     he descended to hell.

     The third day he rose again from the dead.

     He ascended to heaven

     and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.

     From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

     the holy catholic* church,

     the communion of saints,

     the forgiveness of sins,

     the resurrection of the body,

     and the life everlasting. Amen.

HYMN

PAGE 371    I STAND AMAZED IN THE PRESENCE


1. I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene, and wonder how he could love me, a sinner, condemned, unclean. How marvelous! (O how marvelous!) How wonderful! (O how wonderful!) And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! (O how marvelous) How wonderful (O how wonderful) is my Savior's love for me!


2. For me it was in the garden he prayed: "Not my will, but thine." He had no tears for his own griefs, but sweat-drops of blood for mine. How marvelous! (O how marvelous!) How wonderful! (O how wonderful!) And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! (O how marvelous) How wonderful (O how wonderful) is my Savior's love for me!


3. In pity angels beheld him, and came from the world of light to comfort him in the sorrows he bore for my soul that night. How marvelous! (O how marvelous!) How wonderful! (O how wonderful!) And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! (O how marvelous) How wonderful (O how wonderful) is my Savior's love for me!


4. He took my sins and my sorrows, he made them his very own; he bore the burden to Calvary, and suffered and died alone. How marvelous! (O how marvelous!) How wonderful! (O how wonderful!) And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! (O how marvelous) How wonderful (O how wonderful) is my Savior's love for me!


5. When with the ransomed in glory his face I at last shall see,' twill be my joy through the ages to sing of his love for me. How marvelous! (O how marvelous!) How wonderful! (O how wonderful!) And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! (O how marvelous) How wonderful (O how wonderful) is my Savior's love for me!

PRAYER

THE LORDS PRAYER

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.


HYMN

PAGE 140          GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS


1. Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father; there is no shadow of turning with thee; thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not; as thou hast been, thou forever wilt be. Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; all I have needed thy hand hath provided; great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


2. Summer and winter and springtime and harvest, sun, moon, and stars in their courses above join with all nature in manifold witness to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love. Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; all I have needed thy hand hath provided; great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide; strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; all I have needed thy hand hath provided; great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

PAGE 577   GOD OF GRACE AND GOD OF GLORY


1. God of grace and God of glory, on thy people pour thy power; crown thine ancient church's story; bring her bud to glorious flower. Grant us wisdom, grant us courage, for the facing of this hour, (of this hour) for the facing of this hour.

3. Cure thy children's warring madness, bend our pride to thy control; shame our wanton, selfish gladness, rich in things and poor in soul. Grant us wisdom, grant us courage, lest we miss thy kingdom's goal, (kingdom's goal) lest we miss thy kingdom's goal.
