Better is One Day by Matt Redman

How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord, Almighty.
For my soul longs and even faints for You.
O here my heart is satisfied within Your presence,
I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings.


God of Wonders
by Marc Byrd and Steve Hindalong

Lord of all Creation,
of water, earth and sky,
the heavens are your tabernacle;
glory to the Lord on high.

God of wonders beyond our galaxy,
You are holy, holy;
The universe declares Your majesty.
You are holy, holy.


David read from Isaiah 40:25-27 and 2 Corinthians 4:18 giving us an extraordinary picture of the work of God’s hand.

“To whom will you compare me?
Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.”


Creator King by Mary Maclean

You, who made the valleys and the skies,
displayed Your love on far horizons
and before my eyes,
You who lit the stars
and set the dawn in time,
called them all by name
and now You whisper mine.
You’re my Creator King.


Our worship continued with an extended time of silent prayer with 2 Peter 1:3-11 as our guide.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But if any of you do not have them, you are nearsighted and blind, and you have forgotten that you have been cleansed from your past sins.


Christ is Risen by Matt Maher and Mia Fieldes

Let no one caught in sin remain inside the lie of inward shame,
but fix our eyes upon the cross,
and run to Him who showed great love
and bled for us, freely You’ve bled for us.


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.
