Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Words by Robert Robinson (1758) Add. lyrics by Page CXVI, Arrangement by Page CXVI

O to grace how great a debtor
daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
bind my wand’ring heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,
prone to leave the God I love.
Here’s my heart, Lord, take and seal it,
seal it for Thy courts above.

Kristen lead us in a prayer adapted from Psalm 63:1-5 and 8 from The Open Sourcebook.

O God, you are our God;
We eagerly search for you.

Our souls thirst for you;
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.

I have seen you in your sanctuary
and gazed upon your power and glory.
Your unfailing love is better than life itself;
We will praise you as long as we live,
lifting up our hands in prayer.

You satisfy more than the richest feast.
Because you are our helper,
We sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.

We cling to you;
your strong right hand holds us securely.

Holy (Jesus, You Are) by Jason Ingram, Matt Redman, Jonas Myrin

What heart could hold the weight of Your love
and know the heights of Your great worth?
What eyes could look on Your glorious face
shining like the sun?
Holy, Holy, Holy
God most high and God most worthy.

We read Isaiah’s account of his indelible vision of God’s infinite holiness from Isaiah 6:1-7.

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.

“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.”

Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

Since I Am So Sick by Don Chafer

When we stand in the presence of a holy God, like Isaiah, our walls and facades are stripped away and we see ourselves as we truly are – sinners in need of savior. With Since I Am So Sick we confess the reality of who we are and profess the reality of our only hope in Christ.

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.

The Gospel Song by Drew Jones and Bob Kauflin

Holy God, in love, became
perfect Man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin.
By His death I live again.

We received the assurance of our forgiveness with a reading based on Romans 8:1 and 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Who is in a position to condemn?

Only Christ, and Christ died for us,
Christ rose for us,
Christ reigns in power for us,
Christ prays for us.
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation.
The old life has gone; a new life has begun.

In Jesus Christ, our sins are forgiven and
we are cleansed, healed and renewed!

You Have Redeemed My Soul by Don and Lori Chafer

I was a hungry child, a dried up river.
I was a burned out forest
and no one could do anything for me.
But You put food in my body,
water in my dry bed,
and to my blackened branches
you brought the springtime green of new life, of new life.

Satisfied – Words: Clara T. Williams (1875), Music: Karl Digerness (1997)

All my life long I had panted
for a drink from some cool spring
That I hoped would quench the burning
of the thirst I felt within
Hallelujah! He has found me,
the One my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies all my longings,
through his blood I now am saved
