Who do You Fear? – CRC Sunday Sermon

December 13, 2020
3rd Advent Sunday
Bethlehem – The Shepherds

Opening Songs
While Shepherds Watched their Flocks – Trinity Hymnal #223

Christmas Offering
Verse 1

Over the skies of Bethlehem appeared a star
While angels sang to lowly shepherds
Three wise men seeking truth traveled from afar
Hoping to find the child from Heaven
Falling on their knees
They bowed before the humble Prince of Peace
Chorus 1
I bring an offering of worship to my King
No one on earth deserves the praises that I sing
Jesus may You receive the honor that You’re due
Oh Lord I bring an offering to You
I bring an offering to You
Verse 2
The sun cannot compare to the glory of Your love
There is no shadow in Your presence
No mortal man would dare to stand before Your throne
Before the Holy One of Heaven
It’s only by Your blood it’s only through Your mercy
Lord I come
Chorus 2
I bring an offering of worship to my King
No one on earth deserves the praises that I sing
Jesus may You receive the honor that You’re due
Oh Lord I bring an offering to You
(Oh Lord I bring and offering to You)

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus – Trinity Hymnal #196

Verse 1
Come Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our rest in Thee
Israel’s strength and consolation
Hope of all the earth Thou art
Dear desire of every nation
Joy of every longing heart
Verse 2
Joy to those who long to see thee,
Dayspring from on high appear;
Come, thou promised Rod of Jesse,
Of thy birth we long to hear! 
O’er the hills the angels singing
News, glad tidings of a birth:
“Go to him, your praises bringing;
Christ the Lord has come to earth.”
Verse 3
Come to earth to taste our sadness,
He whose glories knew no end;
By his life he brings us gladness,
Our Redeemer, Shepherd, Friend.
Leaving riches without number,
Born within a cattle stall;
This the everlasting wonder,
Christ was born the Lord of all.

Verse 4
Born Thy people to deliver
Born a child and yet a King
Born to reign in us forever
Now Thy gracious Kingdom bring
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone
By Thine all sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne

Christ is Come
Verse 1
The word of the prophets centuries old
The birth of Messiah
Has been long foretold
That (Now) unto you now unto you
Christ is come
Let all creation sing
God’s own Son oh hail the newborn King
The Word made flesh now dwells among us
Christ is come
Verse 2
Those born in darkness
Have seen a great light
The Redeemer of our hearts
Has been born this night
Prince of Peace Yeshua
Messiah Son of Man
Holy One King of Kings Lord of Lords
The Great I Am
Comforter Counselor
Author and Finisher
Divine truth revealer
Deliverer Healer
You are God Jesus You are God
