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.

Charvel Vizitei read from Psalm 68:32-35 which called us to sing praise to God and proclaim His power.

Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth,
sing praise to the Lord,
to him who rides across the highest heavens, the ancient heavens,
who thunders with mighty voice.
Proclaim the power of God,
whose majesty is over Israel,
whose power is in the heavens.
You, God, are awesome in your sanctuary;
the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people.
Praise be to God!

I Sing the Mighty Power of God – Words: Isaac Watts (1715), Music and Additional Chorus: Scott Johnson, Keith Scherer, Andrew Camp, Steve Hendershot and Andrew Luley

I sing the mighty power of God, that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command, and all the stars obey.

Charvel led us in a prayer (Divine Mercies) from The Valley of Vision, a collection of puritan prayers from the 16th century. You can find a copy of this collection in The Crossing’s bookstore.

“Yet still I live, and fly in repentance to Your outstretched arms;
You will not cast me off, for Jesus brings me near,
You will not condemn me, for he died in my stead,
You will not mark my mountains of sin,
for he leveled all, and his beauty covers my deformities.
O my God, I bid farewell to sin by clinging to his cross,
hiding in his wounds, and sheltering in his side.”

Rock of Ages – Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Contemporary chorus by Page CXVI (2009). Arrangement by Page CXVI and David Wilton

Not the Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling.
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace.
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior or I die.

We heard the assurance of our salvation from Colossians 1:13-14.

“For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

You Alone Can Rescue by Matt Redman and Jonas Myrin

You alone can rescue, You alone can save.
You alone can lift us from the grave.
You came down to find us, led us out of death.
To You alone be longs the highest praise.

Surrender by Marc James

I’m giving you my heart, and all that is within,
I lay it all down for the sake of you my King.
I’m giving you my dreams, I’m laying down my rights,
I’m giving up my pride for the promise of new life.

For the past three years, The Crossing has sponsored the True Life Fund, part of the True/False Film Festival. This weekend, The Crossing was fortunate to have Eddie Bocanegra, Cobe Williams and Ameena Matthews (with director Steve James) from this year’s True Life film, “The Interrupters” come and talk about the film and their work with the anti-violence group CeaseFire.
