Call to Worship 

*Hymn 662 Stand Up and Bless the Lord ccli #242496
1 Stand up, and bless the Lord,
ye people of His choice;
stand up, and bless the Lord your God
with heart, and soul, and voice.

2 Though high above all praise,
above all blessing high,
who would not fear His holy Name,
and laud and magnify?

3 O for the living flame,
from His own altar brought,
to touch our lips, our minds inspire,
and wing to heaven our thought!

4 God is our strength and song,
and His salvation ours;
then be His love in Christ proclaimed
with all our ransomed powers.

5 Stand up and bless the Lord,
the Lord your God adore;
stand up, and bless His glorious Name
henceforth for evermore.
WORDS: James Montgomery MUSIC: Genevan Psalter, 1551; adapt by William Crotch, 1836 ccli #242496

Children’s Time 

*Hymn 732 Come We  That Love the Lord 
1 Come, we that love the Lord,
and let our joys be known;
join in a song with sweet accord,
and thus surround the throne.

2 Let those refuse to sing
who never knew our God;
but children of the heavenly King
may speak their joys abroad. 

3 The hill of Zion yields
a thousand sacred sweets
before we reach the heavenly fields,
or walk the golden streets. 

4 Then let our songs abound,
and every tear be dry;
we're marching through Emmanuel's ground
to fairer worlds on high.
WORDS: Isaac Watts, 1707 MUSIC: Aaron Williams, The New Universal Psalmodist, 1770 ccl1 #242496

Prayer Hymn 378 Amazing Grace 
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see.

2 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed!
3 Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come:
'tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

4 The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures.

5 Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease:
I shall possess, within the veil,
a life of joy and peace.

6 When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise 
than when we’d first begun.
WORDS: John Newton, 1779 MUSIC: 19th cent. USA melody; harm. By Edwin O. Excell, 1900 ccli # 242496

Pastoral prayer and 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 trespasses, 
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, 
For ever and ever. Amen.

Sermon: From Groaning to Grace

*Hymn of sending forth 554 All Praise to Our Redeeming Lord 
1 All praise to our redeeming Lord,
who joins us by his grace,
and bids us, each to each restored,
together seek his face.

2 He bids us build each other up;
and gathered into one,
to our high calling’s glorious hope,
we hand in hand go on.

3 The gift which he on one bestows
we all delight to prove;
the grace through every vessel flows,
in purest streams of love.

4 E’en now we think and speak the same,
and cordially agree;
concentered all, through Jesus’ name,
in perfect harmony.

5 We all partake the joy of one,
the common peace we feel,
a peace to sensual minds unknown,
a joy unspeakable.

6 And if our fellowship below
in Jesus be so sweet,
what height of rapture shall we know
when round his throne we meet.
WORDS: Charles Wesley, 1747 MUSIC: Sylvanus B. Pond, 1836; harm. by Austin C. Lovelace, 1963 1871 ccli # 242496
