1. 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) by Matt Redman and Jonas Myrin

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul;
worship His holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul;
I’ll worship Your holy name.

You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger.
Your name is great and Your heart is kind.
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing;
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.


2. Call to Worship: 1 Chronicles 15:28-30

Leader: Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength!

All: Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth;
yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.


3. How Great is Our God by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Ed Cash

The splendor of the King,
clothed in majesty;
Let all the earth rejoice,
all the earth rejoice.

He wraps Himself in light,
and darkness tries to hide,
and trembles at His voice,
and trembles at His voice.


4. Doubting Doubts by Adam Skatula, Brian Eichelberger, Nathan Furtado, Spencer Abbott, and Zach Bolen

Don’t want to live like I’m an orphan with no bed
Still I keep searching for a place to rest my head

But I have all I’ve ever needed
Help me trust beyond what I’m not seeing
To be content with all this grace You’ve given
In my weakness You are strong
In my weakness You are strong


5. Abide by Liz Vice

Jesus we will throw away our lives to follow you
Struggling in your strength, resting in your truth
Jesus, you’re so beautiful, you give vision to the blind
You in us, the hope of glory, in you we will abide


6. Communion Song: Relent by Adam Skatula, Brian Eichelberger, Nathan Furtado, Spencer Abbott, and Zach Bolen

I have strived enough to know that this divide
Could never be repaired through countless second tries
Still I stay the course avoiding what is right
Now I’m so tired, I’m just so tired

I relent, there is nothing for me here
You can have it all, this life is not my own
You give life that is worth the loss of mine
I surrender all I have to follow You


7. Communion Song: Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken – Words: Henry Lyte (1824) Music: Attr. Mozart, Alt. Bill Moore

Jesus, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow Thee.
Destitute, despised, forsaken,
Thou from hence my all shall be.
Perish every fond ambition,
All I’ve sought or hoped or known.
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heaven are still my own.
