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

This hymn (with a lilting new melody by pastor/musician Vito Aiuto of The Welcome Wagon) lyrically anticipates the return of Christ, the anointed Savior of world and the justice and peace He will usher in with his Kingdom.

Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son! 
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun! 
He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free; 
To take away transgression and rule in equity.

David read from Proverbs 5:21-23 and lead us into a time of silent confession.

For your ways are in full view of the LORD,
and he examines all your paths.
The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;
the cords of their sins hold them fast.
For lack of discipline they will die,
led astray by their own great folly.

Our confession continued as David read Psalm 18:6.

In my distress I called to the LORD;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears.

How Long to Save by Patrick K. Miller and David A. Cover

This original song (based on Psalm 18) gave voice to our prayers of confession and our complete dependance on God’s mercy and strength.

You are my Rock, my firm foundation; 
apart from You I will fall. 
You are my strength. my sure salvation! 
I love You, Lord

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.

The Solid Rock – Words by Edward Mote (1834); Music by William B. Brad­bu­ry (1863), Arrangement by Page CXVI

The Solid Rock is musically simple but lyrically weighty. The hymn reminds us in the end, everything is dust save for our salvation in Jesus Christ.

My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame 
but wholly lean on Jesus name.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand
all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand.
