1. Divine Invitation by Steve Hindalong and Eric Owyoung, Arrangement: Page CXVI

We are all here to find
the place where our restless souls will be free.
We were all made to see.
our hearts could not rest until found in Thee.

In this divine invitation we find Your embrace
and in our deep adoration see the light of Your face.
In this divine invitation we all find the place
for our souls where the longings were born long ago.


2. Call to Worship: Psalm 34:1-3, 8

I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the Lord;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.


3. Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery by Matt Papa, Matt Boswell, and Michael Bleeker

Come behold the wondrous mystery
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e’er restrain Him
Praise the Lord; He is alive!

What a foretaste of deliverance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when he comes


4. Call to Confession: Based on Jeremiah 2:12-13, Romans 1:21-22

“Be appalled at this, you heavens,
and shudder with great horror,” declares the LORD.
My people have committed two sins:
We have forsaken you,
the spring of living water,
and have dug our own cisterns,
broken cisterns that cannot hold water.

Although we claim to be wise, we have become fools.
We have exchanged the glory and truth of God for a lie,
and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator.


5. New Song: I Shall Not Want by Audrey Assad and Bryan Brown

From the love of my own comfort
From the fear of having nothing
From a life of worldly passions
Deliver me O God

From the need to be understood
From the need to be accepted
From the fear of being lonely
Deliver me O God, Deliver me O God

And I shall not want, I shall not want
When I taste Your goodness I shall not want
When I taste Your goodness I shall not want


6. O My Soul, AriseWords: Charles Wesley (1742), Music and additional words: Eric McAllister

O my soul, arise,
behold the risen Christ!
Your Great High Priest,
Your spotless sacrifice. O my soul, arise,
God owns you as His child.
Shake off your guilty fears,
my soul, arise.

My God is reconciled; His pardoning voice I hear;
He owns me for His child; I can no longer fear:
With confidence I now draw nigh,
With confidence I now draw nigh,
And “Father, Abba, Father,” cry


7. Onward Go – Words: Henry K. White, Frances S. Fuller-Maitland (Verses 1-2), Christopher Wordsworth (Verse 3) Additional lyrics: David A. Cover & Patrick Miller. Music: Christine Cover and Greg Wiele

Carry on, carry on
with His cross He bears you on.
Carry on, carry on
with His cross He bears you on.


8. Christ is Risen by Matt Maher and Mia Fieldes

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light;
Our God is not dead He’s alive,
He’s alive!

Christ is risen from the dead
trampling over death by death.
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave.


9. 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.
