The Mystery of Faith – Words: Traditional english liturgy, Music by Scott Johnson and David Wilton

Christ has died, Christ has risen,
Christ will come again.
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Christ will come again.


Emily read selected portions of Saint Patrick’s Lorica as a call to worship.

I arise today
through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
through a belief in the Threeness,
through confession of the Oneness of the Creator of creation.

I arise today
through the strength of Christ’s birth and His baptism,
through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial,
through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension,
through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

I arise today
through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me
God’s way to lie before me.


All I Have is Christ by Jordan Kauflin

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.


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

The beginning of strength,
in the fold of His might!
When I’m desperate and tried,
You’re the source of my life!

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


All Glory Be to Christ – Words: Dustin Kensrue, Music: traditional folk song (Roud # 6294), Arrangement: King’s Kaleidoscope.

When on the day the great I Am,
the faithful and the true
The Lamb who was for sinners slain,
is making all things new.

Behold our God shall live with us
and be our steadfast light
And we shall ere his people be,
all glory be to Christ!

All glory be to Christ our king!
All glory be to Christ!
His rule and reign will ever sing,
all glory be to Christ!


Since I Am So Sick – Words: Don Chafer, New Music: Alyssa Kelly

Since I am so sick, since I am in need,
since I have no healing within me,
Oh, my God, be mindful of me,
You are my help and my Redeemer.

Surely those who wait on You
will never be ashamed.
All of those who call on You
will know the faithfulness of Your name.

Emily read from Isaiah 53:7-10a, 11.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was punished.
He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.
Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer…

After he has suffered,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.


Death in His Grave by John Mark McMillan

On friday a thief, on sunday a king
laid down in grief
but woke with the keys
of hell on that day.
The first born of the slain
the man, Jesus Christ, laid
death in his grave.
