Come Ye Sinners - Words: Joseph Hart, Music: Matthew Smith
Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus, ready, stands to save you,
Full of pity, joined with power.
He is able, He is able;
He is willing; doubt no more.
The Gospel Song by Drew Jones and Bob Kauflin
Holy God, in love, became
perfect Man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin.
By His death I live again.
God Who Saves by Aaron Senseman
There is truth in His body,
raised that third day.
There is joy in a stone rolled away.
There is hope pouring out
of the tomb where He lay,
pouring out, pouring over the grave.
Praise the God who saves.
Praise the God who bled.
Praise the God who was nailed to a tree
and wore our sins upon His head.
We read last two verses of Psalm 139 which led us into a time of silent prayer.
Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Dear Refuge of My Weary Soul - Words by Anne Steele (1716-1778), Contemporary Music by Kevin Twit
Dear refuge of my weary soul,
on Thee, when sorrows rise
on Thee, when waves of trouble roll,
my fainting hope relies;
To Thee I tell each rising grief,
for Thou alone canst heal.
Thy Word can bring a sweet relief,
for every pain I feel.
Saide read these comforting words from Psalm 34.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
All Must Be Well - Words by Mary Bowley Peters (1847) with contemporary music by Matthew Smith.
Through the love of God our Savior, all will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor, all is well;
Precious is the blood that healed us;
Perfect is the grace that sealed us;
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us,
all must be well.
Mighty is the Power of the Cross by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Shawn Craig
What can take a dying man
and raise him up to life again?
What can heal the wounded soul,
what can make us white as snow?
What can fill the emptiness,
what can mend our brokenness?
Mighty, awesome, wonderful
is the holy cross
where the lamb laid down His life
to lift us from the fall.
Medley: Grace That is Greater - Words by Julia H. Johnston, Music by Daniel B. Towner (1910)
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
grace that is greater than all our sin.
