Gathering Song: The Prayer of St. Francis - Words: St. Francis of Assisi (translation c. 1912), Music: David A. Cover and Christine Cover
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Our call to worship was from Psalm 13:5-6.
…I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing - Words: Robert Robinson (1758) Additional lyrics and arrangement: Page CXVI
Come, Thou Fount of ev'ry blessing,
tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the Mount, I’m fixed upon it;
Mount of Thy redeeming love.
All Who Are Thirsty by Brenton Brown and Glenn Robertson
All who are thirsty, all who are weak
come to the fountain,
dip your heart in the stream of life.
Let the pain and the sorrow
be washed away
in the waves of his mercy
as deep cries out to deep.
Come, Lord Jesus, come.
David led us in a time of silent confession reading from Jeremiah 2:11b-13.
…my people have exchanged their glorious God for worthless idols. Be appalled at this, you heavens, and shudder with great horror,” declares the Lord. “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.
Blessed is the One by Doug Plank
Blessed is the one whose sins are overcome
whom God has sheltered deep within His grace.
Blessed is the one who trusts in God the Son,
His steadfast love the sinner’s hiding place.
Jesus, Your blood conquers all my sin.
Jesus, Your love draws my heart to sing,
"What a Savior, Jesus."
Jesus, All For Jesus by Robin Mark and Jennifer Atkinson
Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.
All of my ambitions, hopes and plans
I surrender these into Your hands.
For it's only in Your will that I am free.
Wandering Soul by David A. Cover and Christine Cover
There’s nothing I can do
to take away the shame that I feel.
There’s nothing I can do
to shed the burdens carried with me.
I’m a sinner with a wand’ring soul.
But I felt the weight lift off of me
when I heard a Voice call out to me,
“It is done. It is finished.
I AM what you have been seeking.”
