Gathering Song: O Love That Will Not Let Me Go – Words: George Matheson (1887), Music: Christopher Miner (1997)

O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O Come and Mourn With Me Awhile – Words: Frederick W. Faber (1849), Music: Eric Ashley (1999)

O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act Your strength is tried;
And victory remains with love;
Jesus our Lord is crucified!

Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed – Words: Isaac Watts (1707), Music: Anonymous

Alas and did my savior bleed
and did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
for such a wretch as I?

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.

We read a prayer from The Valley of Vision called Privileges which gave us a picture of our need of Christ and the fullness of a life in his name.

From Calvary’s cross wave upon wave of grace
reaches me, deals with my sin,
washes me clean, renews my heart,
strengthens my will, draws out my affection,
kindles a flame in my soul,
rules throughout my inner being,
consecrates my every thought, word, work,
teaches me Your immeasurable love.

In Christ Alone by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

The following songs were sung as we took communion together.

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.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross – Words by Isaac Watts (1749), Music by Lowell Mason (1824)

When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride.

Revelation Song – by Jennie Lee Riddle

Worthy is the, Lamb who was slain, holy, Holy, is He.
Sing a new song, to Him who sits on heaven’s Mercy Seat.
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord, God Almighty
Who was, and is and is to come.
With all creation I sing, “Praise to the King of Kings!
You are my everything and I will adore You.”
