Hymn: Tell me the old, old story                                          #499
1. Tell me the old, old story of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love.
Tell me the story simply, as to a little child;
For I am weak and weary, and helpless and defiled.
Refrain:
Tell me the old, old story; Tell me the old, old story,
Tell me the old, old story of Jesus and His love.
2. Tell me the story slowly, that I may take it in –
That wonderful redemption, God’s remedy for sin.
Tell me the story often, for I forget so soon;
The early dew of morning has passed away at noon.
[Refrain]
3. Tell me the same old story with earnest tones and grave;
Remember that I’m the sinner who Jesus came to save.
Tell me the story always, if you would really be,
In any time of trouble, a comforter to me.
[Refrain]
4. Tell me the same old story, when you have cause to fear
That this world’s empty glory is costing me too dear.
Yes, and when that world’s glory is drawing on my soul, tell the old, old story: Jesus Christ makes thee whole.

Doxology & Dedication

 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.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
Forever and ever. Amen

Hymn: Crown Him with many crowns                             #274
1. Crown him with many crowns, the lamb upon his throne;
Hark! How the heav’nly anthem drowns all music but its own!
Awake, my soul, and sing, of him who died for thee,
And hail him as thy matchless King through all eternity.
2. Crown him the Son of God, before the worlds began,
And ye, who tread where he hath trod, crown him the Son of Man;
Who every grief hath known, that wrings the human breast,
And takes and bears them for his own, that all in him may rest.
3. Crown him the Lord of life, who triumphed o’er the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife for those he came to save;
His glories now we sing, who died and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.
4. Crown him the Lord of love! Behold his hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified:
All hail, Redeemer, hail! For thou hast died for me:
Thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity.
5. Crown Him the Lord of years, the Source, the End of time,
Creator of the rolling spheres in majesty sublime.
All hail, Redeemer; hail, for you have died for me; your praise
Shall never, never fail through all eternity!

Benediction

Choral Amen: Amen, Amen, A—men

MAY THE LORD, MIGHTY LORD
May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.
Grant us peace, perfect, peace, Courage in every endeavour.
Open your eyes and see his face, Know his grace forever.
May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.

L: The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?

CHORUS:
I am the Light of the World
You people come and follow me.
If you follow and love, You’ll learn the mystery
Of what you were meant to do and be.

1.When the song of the angels is stilled.
When the star in the sky is gone.
When the kings and the shepherds have found their way home.
The work of Christmas is begun!

[Chorus]

2.To find the lost and lonely one,
To heal that broken soul with love,
To feed the hungry children with warmth and good food,
To feel the earth below the sky above!

[Chorus]

3.To free the prisoner from his chains,
To make the powerful care,
To rebuild the nations with strength and goodwill,
To call a man your brother everywhere.

[Chorus]

4.To bring hope to every task you do,
To dance at a baby’s new birth,
To make music in an old man’s heart,
And sing to the colors of the earth!

[Chorus]

 Choral Amen: 

MAY THE LORD, MIGHTY LORD
May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.
Grant us peace, perfect, peace, Courage in every endeavour.
Open your eyes and see his face, Know his grace forever.
May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.
