    How Firm a Foundation

    How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

    Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!

    What more can He say than to you He hath said,

    To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

     

    Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,

    For I am thy God and will still give thee aid;

    I’ll strengthen and help thee, and cause thee to stand

    Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.

     

    When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie,

    My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;

    The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design

    Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

     

    The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,

    I will not, I will not desert to its foes;

    That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,

    I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.

    Scripture Reading:                                                             Psalm 19:1-6

    1 The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.

    2 Day to day pours out speech,
    and night to night reveals knowledge.

    3 There is no speech, nor are there words,
    whose voice is not heard.

    4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
    and their words to the end of the world.

    In them he has set a tent for the sun,

    5 which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
    and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.

    6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
    and its circuit to the end of them,
    and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

     

    Prayer of Invocation

     

    Declaring What We Believe:

    All Heaven Declares

    All heaven declares the glory of the risen Lord

    Who can compare with the beauty of the Lord

    Forever He will be the Lamb upon the throne

    I gladly bow the knee and worship Him alone

     

    I will proclaim the glory of the risen Lord

    Who once was slain to reconcile man to God

    Forever You will be the Lamb upon the throne

    I gladly bow the knee and worship You alone

    God, The Uncreated One

    Verse 1

    God the uncreated One, the Author of salvation;

    Who wrote the laws of space and time,

    Who fashioned worlds to His design.

    The One whom angel hosts revere, hung the stars like chandeliers,

    Numbered every grain of sand, knows the heart of every man.

    He is King forever, He is King forever, He is King forevermore.

     

    Verse 2

    God our fortress and our strength, the Rock on which we can depend;

    Matchless in His majesty, His power and authority.

    Unshaken by the schemes of man, never changing, great I AM,

    Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall, He is faithful through it all.

    Crown Him King forever, crown Him King forever,

    Crown Him King forevermore.

     

     

    Verse 3

    Mighty God in mortal flesh, forsaken by a traitor’s kiss;

    The curse of sin and centuries did pierce the lowly Prince of Peace.

    Oh, lifted high, the sinless man, crucified the spotless Lamb,

    Buried by the sons of man, rescued by the Father’s hand

    To reign as King forever, reign as King forever,

    reign as King forevermore.

     

    Verse 4

    King Eternal, God of Grace, we crown you with the highest praise;

    Heaven shouts and saints adore, “You’re holy, holy, holy, Lord!”

    What joy is everlasting life, all is love and faith is sight;

    Justice rolls and praises rise, at the Name of Jesus Christ.

    King of kings forever, King of kings forever, King of kings forevermore.

    He Will Hold Me Fast

    1    When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast

    When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast

    I could never keep my hold Through life’s fearful path

    For my love is often cold, He must hold me fast

     

    Chorus:     He will hold me fast, He will hold me fast

    For my Savior loves me so, He will hold me fast

     

    2    Those He saves are His delight, Christ will hold me fast

    Precious in His holy sight, He will hold me fast

    He’ll not let my soul be lost, His promises shall last

    Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast

    Repeat Chorus

     

    3    For my life He bled and died, Christ will hold me fast

    Justice has been satisfied, He will hold me fast

    Raised with Him to endless life, He will hold me fast

    Till our faith is turned to sight, When he comes at last

    Repeat Chorus

    The Lord Is My Salvation

    The grace of God has reached for me and pulled me from the raging sea

    And I am safe on this solid ground. The Lord is my salvation.

    His strength will help me scale these walls

    I’ll see the dawn of the rising sun. The Lord is my salvation

     

    Refrain:

    Who is like the Lord our God?  Strong to save, faithful in love

    My debt is paid and the vict’ry won. The Lord is my salvation

     

    My hope is hidden in the Lord; He flow’rs each promise of His Word

    When winter fades I know spring will come. The Lord is my salvation

     

    In times of waiting, times of need when I know loss, when I am weak

    I know His grace will renew these days. The Lord is my salvation
