    Change My Heart, O God

    Change my heart, O God, make it ever true.

    Change my heart, O God, may I be like You.

    You are the Potter, I am the clay;

    Mold me and make me, this is what I pray.

    Change my heart, O God, make it ever true;

    Change my heart, O God, may I be like You.

    Scripture Reading:                                                           James 1:19-27

    19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;

    20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

    21 Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

    22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

    23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror.

    24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.

    25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

    26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.

    27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

    Blue Psalter, pg. 1049

    The Lord’s Prayer (Abana in Heaven)

    Abana in heaven, hallowed be your holy name.

    Your kingdom come, your will be done, in all the earth as in heaven.

    Your kingdom come, your will be done, in all the earth as in heaven.

    And give to us, give us this day our daily bread, O Lord, we pray.

    Forgive our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us.

    And save us in time of trial. Deliver us from evil.

    Yours is the kingdom, yours the power. Yours is the glory now and ever.

    Abana in heaven. Amen

    Create In Me A Clean Heart

    Create in me a clean heart, O God,

    And renew a right spirit within me.     (Repeat)

     

    Cast me not away from Thy presence, O Lord,

    And take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.

    Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation,

    And renew a right spirit within me.

    Your Hand, O God, Has Guided

    1. Your hand, O God, has guided Your church from age to age;

    The tale of love is written for us on every page.

    Our fathers knew Your goodness and we Your works record;

    And each of these bear witness; One church, one faith, one Lord.

     

    Refrain:       One church, one faith, one Lord of life;

    One Father, one Spirit, one Christ.

    One church, one faith, one Lord of life;

    One Heavenly King, Lord of all.

     

    1. Your mercy never fails us, or leaves Your work undone;

    With Your right hand to help us, the victory shall be won.

    And then, by all creation, Your Name shall be adored;

    With earth and Heaven singing: One church, one faith, one Lord.

    Repeat Refrain

  • O Church, Arise

    O Church, arise, and put your armor on;

    hear the call of Christ our Captain.

    For now the weak can say that they are strong

    in the strength that God has given.

    With a shield of faith and belt of Truth,

    we’ll stand against the devil’s lies;

    And army bold, whose battle cry is love,

    reaching out to those in darkness.

     

    Our call to war to love the captive soul,

    but to rage against the captor;

    And with the sword that makes the wounded whole,

    we will fight with faith and valor.

    When faced with trials on every side,

    we know the outcome is secure,

    And Christ will have the prize for which He died

    – an inheritance of nations.

     

    Come see the cross, where love and mercy meet,

    as the Son of God is stricken;

    Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet,

    for the Conqueror has risen!

    And as the stone is rolled away

    and Christ emerges from the grave,

    This victory march continues till the day

    every eye and heart shall see Him.

     

    So Spirit come, put strength in every stride,

    give grace for every hurdle,

    That we may run with faith to win the prize

    of a servant good and faithful.

    As saints of old still line the way,

    retelling triumphs of His grace,

    We hear their calls and hunger for the day

    when with Christ we stand in Glory.

    Red Hymnal #118                                                                                     

    A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

    A mighty fortress is our God, A bulwark never failing

    Our helper He amid the flood Of mortal ills prevailing.

    For still our ancient foe Doth seek to work us woe

    His craft and power are great, And, armed with cruel hate,

    On earth is not his equal.

     

    Did we in our own strength confide, Our striving would be losing,

    Were not the right man on our side, The man of God’s own choosing.

    Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He

    Lord Sabaoth His name, From age to age the same

    And He must win the battle

     

    And though this world with devils filled, Should threaten to undo us,

    We will not fear, for God hath willed, His truth to triumph through us.

    The prince of darkness grim, We tremble not for him.

    His rage we can endure, For lo, his doom is sure:

    One little word shall fell him.

     

    That word above all earthly powers, No thanks to them, abideth;

    The Spirit and the gifts are ours Through Him who with us sideth.

    Let goods and kindred go, This mortal life also.

    The body they may kill; God’s truth abideth still:

    His kingdom is forever.

     

    Benediction
