Because of Your love
Verse
As we come into Your presence
We remember ev’ry blessing
That You’ve poured out so freely from above
Lifting gratitude and praises
For compassion so amazing
Lord we’ve come to give You thanks
For all You’ve done
Chorus
Because of Your love we’re forgiven
Because of Your love our hearts are clean
We lift You up with songs of freedom
Forever we’re changed because of Your love

Jesus Thank You
Verse 1
The myst’ry of the cross I cannot comprehend
The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect Holy One crushed Your Son
Who drank the bitter cup reserved for me
Chorus
Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus thank You
Once Your enemy now seated at Your table
Jesus thank You
Verse 2
By Your perfect sacrifice I’ve been brought near
Your enemy You’ve made Your friend
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end
Bridge
Lover of my soul I want to live for You

Pastoral Reading
Psalm 62
For God alone my soul waits in silence;
    from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
3 How long will all of you attack a man
    to batter him,
    like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.
    They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
    but inwardly they curse. Selah
5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
    for my hope is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my salvation and my glory;
    my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your heart before him;
    God is a refuge for us. Selah
9 Those of low estate are but a breath;
    those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
    they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no trust in extortion;
    set no vain hopes on robbery;
    if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
11 Once God has spoken;
    twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
12     and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
For you will render to a man
    according to his work.

Opening Hymn

Sons We Are Through God’s Election (CRC #83)

(1) Sons we are through God’s election,
Who in Jesus Christ believe; By eternal destination,
Formed and fixed salvation’s plan.
Hallelujah! Our Redeemer, does both grace and glory give.

(2) Every soul of man, by sinning,
Merits everlasting pain;
But theylove, without beginning,
Formed and fixed salvation’s plan.
Hallelujah! countless millions,
shall in life through Jesus reign.

(3) Praise my soul, adore and wonder!
Ask, :”O why such love to me?”
Grace has put me in the number of the Savior’s family,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Thanks, eternal Love, to thee!

(4) These are springs of consolation,
To converted sons of grace;
Finished, free, and full salvation
shining in the Savior’s face!
Hallelujah! Free grace only,
suits the wretched sinner’s case.

Hymn
Across the Lands (HMA #2)

You’re the Word of God the Father
From before the world began.
Ev’ry star and ev’ry planet
Has been fashioned by Your hand.
All creation holds together
By the power of Your voice.
Let the skies declare Your glory;
Let the land and seas rejoice!

You’re the Author of creation;
You’re the Lord of ev’ry man;
And Your cry of love rings out across the lands.

Yet You left the gaze of angels,
Came to seek and save the lost,
And exchanged the joy of heaven
For the anguish of a cross.
With a prayer You fed the hungry;
With a word You calmed the sea;
Yet how silently You suffered
That the guilty may go free!

With a shout You rose victorious,
Wresting vict’ry from the grave,
And ascended into heaven,
Leading captives in Your way.
Now You stand before the Father,
Interceding for Your own;
From each tribe and tongue and nation,
You are leading sinners home!

Closing Hymn
Come Ye Sinners (CRC #34)
Chorus
My sheep know My voice
And day by day
They abide in the fold
And go not astray
They love Me because
I have made them My choice
And they follow My call
For My sheep know My voice

Verse 1
My sheep know My voice
And the path that I take
They follow wherever I go
My sheep know My voice
And come at My call
But a stranger’s voice
Do they not know

Verse 2
My sheep know My voice
And the pastures of green
Where I lead them so often to feed
My sheep know My voice
And the cool sparkling stream
Where beside its still waters I lead

Verse 3
My sheep know My voice
And the valley of death
Through which I shall lead them someday
But no danger nor harm
Can touch one of them
For I will be with them alway
