This week’s Songs and Scenes features photos courtesy of Scott Patrick Myers. You’ll find links in the song titles which allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs (when available). This setlist, along with many other churches, is archived at the Sunday Setlist blog at The Worship Community.

We began our service with a call to worship (adapted from The Worship Sourcebook) asking God to open our eyes, minds and hearts to see Christ and worship Him in spirit and truth.

Here I Am to Worship by Tim Hughes

Light of the world,
You stepped down into darkness,
opened my eyes, let me see.
Beauty that made this heart adore You,
hope of a life spent with You.
Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down,
here I am to say that You’re my God.

With Melting Heart and Weeping Eyes – Words by John Fawcett (1740-1817), Music by Clint Wells

Does not Thy sacred word proclaim,
salvation free in Jesus’ name?
To Him I look and humbly cry,
“Lord, save a wretch condemned to die.
Lord, save this wretch condemned to die.”

We heard God’s word from Isaiah 55:6-7 (adapted by Eugene Peterson in The Message) which invites us to seek Him and turn away from the things that harden our hearts toward Him.

Seek God while he’s here to be found,
pray to him while he’s close at hand.
Let the wicked abandon their way of life
and the evil their way of thinking.
Let them come back to God, who is merciful,
come back to our God, who is lavish with forgiveness.

Here is Our King (chorus only) by David Crowder

Here is our King, here is our love,
here is our God who’s come
to bring us back to Him.
He is the One, He is Jesus.

Psalm 34:4-6 and Psalm 34:8 assured us God hears our prayers and He rescues us from our fears and troubles.

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 man who takes refuge in him.

My daughters notes from during worship @TheCrossingCoMo @cros... on Twitpic

Gloria by King’s Kaliedoscope

The photo above is an 8 year old’s notes from the service this morning. Her heartfelt expression of worship is a picture of what Chad Gardner writes in a blog post about the song “Gloria” and Psalm 34, “Christ delivers us, making us unashamed and radiant. When we really see who Christ is, when we actually taste his goodness and are overwhelmed, how else could we respond but with a resounding “Gloria!”

O taste and see that the Lord is good;
all you people, all you saints
all you children of the king.
Gloria!, Gloria!, Gloria!, Gloria!

I Fear the Lord by David A. Cover, Patrick K. Miller and Christine Cover

I Fear the Lord is a companion song to The Crossing’s new sermon series on the book of Proverbs which enables us to emotionally respond to the truths we’re learning together.

You are my God!
Help me walk in your wisdom’s way.
You are my God!
Father, teach my heart to obey.
