The Call to Worship: Psalm 8: Verses 1,3,4 and 5
1 O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. 3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; 4 what are humans that you are mindful of them, mortals[a] that you care for them? 5 Yet you have made them a little lower than God[b] and crowned them with glory and honor.

Responsive Reading: Psalm 131 Responsive 1 O Lord, my heart is not lifted up;     my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things     too great and too marvelous for me. 2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul,     like a weaned child with its mother;     my soul is like the weaned child that is with me. 3 O Israel, hope in the Lord     from this time on and forevermore.

Sermon: “Who Are You?”

Hymn: This is My Father’s World                                     #328

1. This is my Father’s world,
And to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings The music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world:
I rest me in the thought Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas– God’s hand the wonders wrought.

2. This is my Maker’s world:
The birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, Declare their Maker’s praise. This is my Maker’s world:
God shines in all that’s fair;
In the rustling grass God’s footsteps pass, God speaks to me everywhere.

3. This is my Saviours world:
O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the Ruler yet.
This is my Saviour’s world; the battle is not done; Jesus, who died, shall be satisfied, and earth and heaven be one.

 The Prayer of the People & The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
Forever and ever. Amen
