Sunday, August 7, 2011

This week’s Songs and Scenes features photos graciously provided by Nate Herndon. The service was planned and led by guest leader Rhett Johnson. You’ll find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs where available. This setlist (along with many other churches) is also archived at the Sunday Setlist blog at The Worship Community.

Kingdom Days by Randall Goodgame

Lord, Thy mercies never fail,
Lord, they never fail.
Hail my savior, Jesus, hail,
hail King Jesus, hail.

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed – Words: James Montgomery (1821), Music: Vito Aiuto (2008)

This wonderful hymn paints a picture of the coming reign of Christ as promised in scripture. Originally sung by The Welcome Wagon, The Crossing Music has put its own spin on their arrangement.

To Him shall prayer unceasing
and daily vows ascend;
His kingdom still increasing,
a kingdom without end:
The tide of time shall never
His covenant remove;
His Name shall stand forever,
His Name to us is Love.

Rhett lead us in a prayer of lament written by Mike Cosper from The Open Source Book.

Give us a hunger for heaven
by opening our eyes to how far we are from home.
Show us how unsatisfying this world is,
so we can find satisfaction in the Gospel
and cling to Christ alone.

We heard the assurance of our heavenly hope from 1 Peter 1:3-5.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

Jesus, Lover of My Soul – Words: Charles Wesley (1740), Music: Chris Eaton and John Hartley

Other refuge have I none,
hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
Leave, ah! leave me not alone,
still support and comfort me.
All my trust on Thee is stayed,
all my help from Thee I bring;
Cover my defenseless head
with the shadow of Thy wing.

Revelation Song – by Jennie Lee Riddle

This powerful anthem reflects the eternal song of heaven from Revelation 4:8.

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.”

Absent from Flesh – Words: Issac Watts (1707), Music and adapted lyrics: Jamie Barnes

We introduced this new song by Sojourn Music (from the album The Water and the Blood) last week. It was a fitting response to Nathan’s message.

I go where God and glory shine,
to one eternal day.
This failing body I now resign
for angels point my way,
for the angels point my way!
