Call to Worship:Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:25-26

JESUS SAVES!

We have heard the joyful sound:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Spread the tidings all around:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Bear the news to every land;
Climb the steeps and cross the waves
Onward! ‘tis our Lord’s command;
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Sing above the battle strife:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
By his death and endless life,
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Sing it softly thro’ the gloom,
when the heart for mercy craves
Sing in triumph o’er the tomb:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Give the winds a mighty voice:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Let the nations now rejoice:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Shout salvation full and free,
highest hills and deepest caves,
This our song of victory:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

And when storms are closing in:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
When my heart is crushed by sin:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Look to him, and find new life,
when you’re beaten by the waves;
Now and ever, hope in Christ!
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Look to him, and find new life,
when you’re beaten by the waves;
Now and ever, hope in Christ!
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

CHRIST OUR HOPE IN LIFE AND DEATH

What is our hope in life and death?
Christ alone, Christ alone.
What is our only confidence?
That our souls to him belong.
Who holds our days within his hand?
What comes, apart from his command?
And what will keep us to the end?
The love of Christ, in which we stand!

O, sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O, sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

What truth can calm the troubled soul?
God is good, God is good.
Where is his grace and goodness known?
In our great Redeemer’s blood.
Who holds our faith when fears arise?
Who stands above the stormy trial?
Who sends the waves that bring us nigh
Unto the shore, the rock of Christ?

O, sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O, sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

Unto the grave, what shall we sing?
“Christ, he lives; Christ, he lives!”
And what reward will heaven bring?
Everlasting life with him.
There we will rise to meet the Lord,
Then sin and death will be destroyed,
And we will feast in endless joy,
When Christ is ours forevermore.

O, sing hallelujah!
Our hope springs eternal;
O, sing hallelujah!
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death!

THERE IS A DAY

There is a day
That all creation’s waiting for,
A day of freedom and liberation for the earth.
And on that day
The Lord will come to meet His bride,
And when we see Him
In an instant we’ll be changed

The trumpet sounds
And the dead will then be raised
By His power, never to perish again.
Once only flesh,
Now clothed with immortality,
Death has now been
Swallowed up in victory

We will meet Him in the air!
And then we will be like Him,
For we will see Him, as He is!
Amen!
Then all hurt and pain will cease!
And we’ll be with Him forever,
And in His glory we will live!
Amen! Amen!

So lift your eyes
To the things as yet unseen,
That will remain now for all eternity.
Though trouble’s hard,
It’s only momentary
And it’s achieving
Our future glory

We will meet Him in the air!
And then we will be like Him,
For we will see Him, as He is!
Amen!
Then all hurt and pain will cease!
And we’ll be with Him forever,
And in His glory we will live!
Amen! Amen!

SCRIPTURE READING – 1 JOHN 2:15-17

 

BE THOU MY VISION

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, First in my heart
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

Be Thou my battle-shield, sword for the fight;
Be Thou my dignity, thou my delight
Thou, my soul’s shelter, thou my high tower;
Raise thou me heavenward, O power of my pow’r

High King of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heav’ns Son!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

GIVE ME JESUS

In the morning when I rise,
In the morning when I rise
In the morning when I rise,
Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus, give me Jesus!
You can have all this world,
Give me Jesus!

And when I am afraid,
When I am afraid
And when I am afraid,
Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus, give me Jesus!
You can have all this world,
Give me Jesus!

And when I come to die,
When I come to die
And when I come to die,
Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus, give me Jesus!
You can have all this world,
Give me Jesus!

I’D RATHER HAVE JESUS

I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold
I’d rather be his than have riches untold
I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands
I’d rather be led by his nail-pierced hand

Than to be the king of a vast domain,
and be held in sin’s dread sway
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
this world affords today

I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause
I’d rather be faithful to his dear cause
I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame
I’d rather be true to his holy name!

Than to be the king of a vast domain,
and be held in sin’s dread sway
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
this world affords today
