The Call to Worship

Hymn: My faith looks up to Thee                                       #677
1. My faith looks up to thee,
thou Lamb of Calvary.
Saviour divine:
now hear me when I pray;
take all my guilt away;
oh let me from this day
be wholly thine.

2. May thy rich grace impart
strength to my fainting heart;
my zeal inspire;
as thou hast died for me,
oh may my love to thee
pure, warm and changeless be,
a living fire.

3. While life’s dark maze I tread,
and griefs around me spread,
be thou my guide;
bid darkness turn to day,
wipe sorrow’s tears away,
nor let me ever stray
from thee aside.

4. When ends life’s transient dream,
when death’s cold sullen stream
shall o’er me roll,
blest Saviour, then, in love,
fear and distrust remove;
oh bear me safe above
a ransomed soul.

Hymn: O, Master let me walk with Thee                        #642

in lowly paths of service free;

2. Help me the slow of heart to move
by some clear winning word of love;
teach me the wayward feet to stay,
and guide them in the homeward way.

3. Teach me thy patience; still with thee
in closer, dearer company,
in work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
in trust that triumphs over wrong,

4. in hope that sends a shining ray
far down the future’s broadening way,
in peace that only thou canst give,
with thee, O Master, let me live.

Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
the Holy Catholic Church;
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Call to Worship:              Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd;
There is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures
Where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me,
To revive my drooping spirit.
He guides me along the right path;
He is true to his name.
If I should walk in the valley of darkness
No evil would I fear.
You are there with your crook and your staff;
With these you give me comfort.
You have prepared a banquet for me
In the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil:
My cup is overflowing.
Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me
All the days of my life.
In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell
For ever and ever.

Hymn: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty                                   #321
1. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, who rules all creation.
My soul, praise God who alone is your health and salvation.
Come, all who hear, sisters and brothers draw near, joining in glad adoration.
2. Praise to the Lord, who in all things so wondrously reigning hides you with sheltering wings, ever gently sustaining.
Have you not seen how your heart’s wishes have been granted through God’s kind ordaining?
3. Praise to the Lord, who will prosper your work, who defends you; surely God’s merciful goodness here daily attends you; ponder anew what the Almighty can do, when in great love God befriends you.
4. Praise to the Lord, and with all that is in me adoring, all who have life and breath, come with glad praises outpouring! Let the Amen sound from God’s people again; now and forever adoring!

I know that God is near.
5. In evil, troubled days, my god
will hide and shelter me,
and raise me high upon a rock above
my enemy.

for all God’s saving grace,
With melody unto the Lord
and joyful shouts of praise!

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.

In the rustling grass God’s footsteps pass, God speaks to me everywhere.

Bold I approach the eternal throne, and claim the crown, through Christ, my own.
