    Psalm 134 A                                                              Blue Psalter, pg. 874

    Come, All You Servants of the Lord

    1. Come, all you servants of the Lord,

    who work and pray by night, by day.

    Come, bless the Lord within this place;

    with lifted hands your homage pay.

     

    1. The Lord now bless from heaven above

    and shine on you with radiant face;

    The Lord who heaven and earth has made

    illuminate you with peace and grace.

    Call To Worship

     

    Scripture Reading:                                       Ecclesiastes 1:1-2; 12:9-14

    1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

    2 Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher,
    vanity of vanities! All is vanity.

    9 Besides being wise, the Preacher also taught the people knowledge, weighing and studying and arranging many proverbs with great care.

    10 The Preacher sought to find words of delight, and uprightly he wrote words of truth.

    11 The words of the wise are like goads, and like nails firmly fixed are the collected sayings; they are given by one Shepherd.

    12 My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

    13 The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

    14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.

     

    Prayer of Invocation

     

    Psalm 143 A                                                              Blue Psalter, pg. 936

    Hear My Prayer, O God

    Hear my prayer, O God, and listen to my plea;

    Faithful, righteous One, give ear and answer me.

    Judge me not, I pray; no merit dare I claim;

    Knowing my own faults, I trust in your just Name.

     

    Hounded by a foe who crushed me to the ground,

    I am like the dead or those in prison bound.

    Hopeless, numbed by fear, I ponder all your care;

    Thirsty as parched earth, I lift my hands in prayer.

     

    Answer soon, O God; my spirit faints in me;

    Do not hide your face, or I will cease to be.

    When the morning dawns, make known your love anew;

    Show me how to walk, for I will trust in you.

     

    Keep me safe, O God, and help me learn your will;

    Let your Spirit lead through level pathways still.

    For your great Name’s sake, my griefs and fears dispel;

    Free me from my foes, that I may serve you well.

    Declaring What We Believe:

    Psalm 32 B                                                                Blue Psalter, pg. 208

    You Are My Hiding Place

    You are my hiding place,

    You always fill my heart with songs of deliverance,

    Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.

     

    I will trust in You

    Let the weak say I am strong, in the strength of the Lord.

    We Respond to God’s Presence

     

    Psalm 108 A                                                              Blue Psalter, pg. 697

    My Heart Is Firmly Fixed

    My heart is firmly fixed; to God my song I raise.

    Awake, O harp, in joyful strains; awake, my soul, to praise

     

    Among the nations, Lord, to you my song will rise.

    Your faithfulness outshines the heavens, your mercies reach the skies.

     

    How great your love, O lord: we praise your matchless worth.

    Your glory be exalted high and cover all the earth.

     

    Stretch forth your mighty hand in answer to our prayer,

    and let your own beloved ones your great salvation share.

     

    God speaks: “All lands are mine, to serve me and obey;

    my people and their foes will serve my glory day by day.”

     

    O who will lead us on in triumph on this day?

    Lord, why do you reject your own and turn your face away?

     

    An army’s help is vain; to God for help we plead.

    With God we shall do valiantly; with God we shall succeed.

    My Hope Rests Firm

    1. My hope rests firm on Jesus Christ, He is my only plea.

    Though all the world should point and scorn,

    His ransom leaves me free, His ransom leaves me free.

     

    1. My hope sustains me as I strive and strain towards the goal;

    Though still I stumble into sin,

    His death paid for it all, His death paid for it all.

     

    1. My hope provides me with a spur to help me run this race:

    I know my tears will turn to joy the day I see His face,

    The day I see His face.

     

    1. My hope is to be with my Lord, to know as I am known;

    To serve Him gladly all my days in praise before His throne,

    In praise before His throne.

  • Red Hymnal #92

    The Solid Rock

    My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;

    I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand,

    All other ground is sinking sand.

     

    When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace;

    In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil.

    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand,

    All other ground is sinking sand.

     

    His oath, His covenant, His blood, support me in the whelming flood;

    When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay.

    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand,

    All other ground is sinking sand.

     

    When He shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in Him be found;

    Dressed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne.

    On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand,

    All other ground is sinking sand.

    There is a Higher Throne

    1. There is a higher throne than all this world has known,

    Where faithful ones from ev’ry tongue will one day come.

    Before the Son we’ll stand, made faultless through the Lamb;

    Believing hearts find promised grace; Salvation comes.

     

    Chorus:  Hear Heaven’s voices sing; Their thund’rous anthem rings

    Through emerald courts and sapphire skies; Their praises rise.

    All glory, wisdom, pow’r, strength,

    thanks and honour are to God, our King,

    Who reigns on high forevermore.

     

    1. And there we’ll find our home; Our life before the throne.

    We’ll honour Him in perfect song where we belong.

    He’ll wipe each tear stained eye as thirst and hunger die.

    The Lamb becomes our Shepherd King; We’ll reign with Him.
