Theme: Sovereignty of God (Ps 99:1-3)

 

Pew News:

 




Name of all majesty,

fathomless mystery,

King of the ages

by angels adored;

power and authority,

splendour and dignity,

bow to his mastery,

Jesus is Lord!

 

Child of our destiny,

God from eternity,

love of the Father

on sinners outpoured;

see now what God has done

sending his only Son,

Christ the beloved One, 

Jesus is Lord!

 

Saviour of Calvary,

costliest victory,

darkness defeated

and Eden restored;

born as a man to die,

nailed to a cross on high,

cold in the grave to lie,

Jesus is Lord!

 

Source of all sovereignty,

light, immortality,

life everlasting

and heaven assured;

so with the ransomed, we

praise him eternally,

Christ in his majesty,

Jesus is Lord!

Confession:

Our heavenly Father thank you that you love us and care for us all the time. We know that this week we have not always lived the way you tell us. We have done wrong things and not done all the good things we should have done. Only you can save us, so please forgive us and help us to live as your friends. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen

 

Family Slot: We Are Not Very Good At Waiting for Good Things...




Come, thou fount of every blessing,

tune my heart to sing thy grace;

streams of mercy never ceasing

call for songs of loudest praise.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,

sung by flaming tongues above;

Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,

mount of thy redeeming love.

 

Here I raise mine Ebenezer;

'Hither by thy help I'm come',

and I hope, by thy good pleasure,

safely to arrive at home.

Jesus sought me when a stranger,

wandering from the fold of God;

He, to rescue me from danger,

interposed his precious blood.

 

O to grace how great a debtor

daily I'm constrained to be!

Let thy goodness like a fetter,

bind my wandering heart to thee.

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,

prone to leave the God I love;

here's my heart, O take and seal it,

seal it for thy courts above!

Reading: Isaiah 6:1-4


Reading: John 7:1-10


 

Creed:

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

The church's one foundation

is Jesus Christ her Lord;

she is his new creation

by water and the word:

from heaven he came and sought her

to be his holy bride;

with his own blood he bought her

and for her life he died.

 

Called out from every nation,

yet one through all the earth;

her charter of salvation -

one Lord, one faith, one birth:

one holy name she blesses,

and shares one holy food;

as to one hope she presses

with every grace endued.

 

We see her long divided

by heresy and sect;

yet she by God is guided -

one people, one elect:

her vigil she is keeping,

her cry goes up, 'How long?'

and soon the night of weeping

shall be the dawn of song.

 

In toil and tribulation,

and tumult of her war,

she waits the consummation

of peace for evermore:

till with the vision glorious

her longing eyes are blessed;

at last the church victorious

shall be the church at rest!

 

Yet she on earth has union

with God the Three-in-One;

and mystic, sweet communion

with those whose rest is won:

O happy ones and holy!

Lord, grant to us your grace,

with them the meek and lowly,

in heaven to see your face.

 

Samuel J Stone (1839-1900)

Blessed Be Your Name

In the land that is plentiful

Where Your streams of abundance flow

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed Be Your name

When I'm found in the desert place

Though I walk through the wilderness

Blessed Be Your name

 

Every blessing You pour out, I'll

Turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

 

Blessed be Your name

When the sun's shining down on me

When the world's 'all as it should be'

Blessed be Your name

 

Blessed be Your name

On the road marked with suffering

Though there's pain in the offering

Blessed be Your name

 

Every blessing You pour out I'll

Turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name,

Prayers:


Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


Christ triumphant ever reigning,

Saviour, Master, King!

Lord of heaven, our lives sustaining,

hear us as we sing:

 

Yours the glory and the crown,

the high renown, the eternal name.

 

Word incarnate, truth revealing,

Son of Man on earth!

power and majesty concealing

by your humble birth:

 

Suffering servant, scorned, ill–treated,

victim crucified!

death is through the cross defeated,

sinners justified:

 

Priestly king, enthroned for ever

high in heaven above!

sin and death and hell shall never

stifle hymns of love:

 

So, our hearts and voices raising

through the ages long,

ceaselessly upon you gazing,

this shall be our song:

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord

In the name of Christ. Amen.
