All I Have is Christ by Jordan Kauflin
But as I ran my hell-bound race, indifferent to the cost,
You looked upon my helpless state and led me to the cross.
And I beheld God’s love displayed, You suffered in my place,
You bore the wrath reserved for me, now all I know is grace.
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.
The Solid Rock - Words by Edward Mote (1834); Music by William B. Bradbury (1863), Arranged by Page CXVI
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.
We heard a call to prayer adapted from The Open Sourcebook based on Psalm 13:1-3a.
How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
Consider and answer me, O Lord my God.
How Long to Save by Patrick K. Miller and David A. Cover
Beneath the sea, deliver me;
the current's wake You take!
My sinful ways are drowning me,
cut the deep, set me free!
You are my Rock, my firm foundation;
apart from You I will fall.
You are my strength. my sure salvation!
I love You, Lord
Jesus Christ promised that He will return to make everything sad come untrue. This morning we received a picture of this future restoration from Revelation 21:1-5a.
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”
The Revelation of Jesus Christ by Cam Huxford, Arranged by Ghost Ship
"The Revelation of Jesus Christ" is a melodically inventive and emotionally moving adaptation of Revelation 21 by Ghost Ship from Mars Hill in Seattle. The band's two goals for their music is, "to point to Jesus and call people to respond to Jesus."
I saw a new heaven and a new earth,
for the first had passed away.
I saw a new city, Jerusalem;
a bride on her wedding day.
I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
“look at the dwelling place of God.”
He will dwell with them, they will be his people,
and He will be their God.
Wipe away every tear from our eyes.
Death will be no more.
Awakening by Chris Tomlin and Reuben Morgan
In Your presence, in Your power, awakening.
For this moment, for this hour, awakening.
For You and You alone awake my soul;
Awake my soul and sing.
For the world You love Your will be done;
Let Your will be done in me.
