Opening Songs

O, What A Savior
Verse 1

Lift your eyes to the Lord your God
Father of goodness and grace
All of your burdens and gifts of praise
Come lay them down in this place
Chorus
For His arm is mighty and His love will endure
His plan is perfect His victory is sure
And His anger is righteous but His grace is free
Oh what a Saviour is He
Oh what a Saviour is He
Verse 2
Lift your souls to the Lord your god
Maker of heaven and earth
Sun and moon bow before His throne
Praise Him for all He is worth
Verse 3
Lift your minds to the Lord your God
He will fulfil all your needs
Seek His wisdom attend His words
Follow wherever He leads

How Long Till that Day
Verse 1
O how long will you be still
How long shall I wait
Sorrows toils and ills prevail
God come be my strength
Tears like rain fall to the floor
Cries like tempests crash the shore
Saviour rescue me I pray, How long till that day

Verse 2
O how weak my feeble frame
How long shall I faint
Burdened by my guilt and shame
Lord I need Your grace
The war against my sin remains
Satan’s lies assail my faith
Give me pow’r to run this race, How long till that day

Chorus
You abound in steadfast love
You are strong to save
You are faithful to Your promise
Worthy is Your name, Worthy is Your name

End
How long till that day

Verse 3
O that day when Christ will come
How the dawn will break
Every cry will turn to song
When we see His face
Christ my Saviour and my Lord
You’re my hope and my reward
Jesus You are coming soon
How long till that day, How long till that day

Scripture
Psalm 3

O Lord, how many are my foes!
    Many are rising against me;
many are saying of my soul,
    “There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
    my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the Lord,
    and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah

I lay down and slept;
    I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
    who have set themselves against me all around.

Arise, O Lord!
    Save me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
    you break the teeth of the wicked.

Salvation belongs to the Lord;
    your blessing be on your people! Selah

Songs
I Sing the Mighty Power of God (Trinity Hymnal #119)

My Worth is Not in What I Own
Verse 1
My worth is not in what I own
Not in the strength of flesh and bone
But in the costly wounds of love at the cross
Verse 2
My worth is not in skill or name
In win or lose in pride or shame
But in the blood of Christ that flowed at the cross
Chorus
I rejoice in my Redeemer
Greatest treasure Wellspring of my soul
I will trust in Him no other
My soul is satisfied in Him alone
Verse 3
As summer flowers we fade and die
Fame youth and beauty hurry by
But life eternal calls to us at the cross
Verse 4
I will not boast in wealth or might
Or human wisdom’s fleeting light
But I will boast in knowing Christ at the cross
Verse 5
Two wonders here that I confess
My worth and my unworthiness
My value fixed my ransom paid at the cross
