PRAYER OF INVOCATION

WORSHIP IN SONG

Come Christians Join to Sing!
Come Christians join to sing, Alleluia!  Amen.
Loud praise to Christ our King, Alleluia!  Amen.
Let all with heart and voice, Before His throne rejoice.
Praise is His gracious choice, Alleluia!  Amen.

Come lift your hearts on high, Alleluia!  Amen.
Let praises fill the sky, Alleluia!  Amen.
He is our Guide and Friend, To us He’ll condescend.
His love shall never end, Alleluia!  Amen.

Praise yet our Christ again, Alleluia!  Amen.
Life shall not end the strain, Alleluia!  Amen.
On heaven’s blissful shore, His goodness we’ll adore.
Singing forevermore, Alleluia!  Amen.

O Love that will not let Me go!
O love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

O joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

O cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.

Thy Mercy my God!
Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song,
The joy of my heart, and the boast of my tongue;
Thy free grace alone, from the first to the last,
Hath won my affections, and bound my soul fast.

Without Thy sweet mercy I could not live here;
Sin would reduce me to utter despair;
But, through Thy free goodness, my spirits revive,
And He that first made me still keeps me alive

Thy mercy is more than a match for my heart,
Which wonders to feel its own hardness depart;
Dissolved by Thy goodness, I fall to the ground,
And weep to the praise of the mercy I’ve found.

Great Father of mercies, Thy goodness I own,
And the covenant love of Thy crucified Son;
All praise to the Spirit, Whose whisper divine,
Seals mercy, and pardon, and righteousness mine.

SONG OF RESPONSE

It Is Well
When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well {it is well}
With my soul {with my soul}
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul

(For the duration of the COVID-19 crisis we will be singing “It is Well” as our closing hymn. To read the inspirational story behind this hymn’s origin clicking here.)
