Oh How Good It Is
Verse 1
Oh how good it is
When the family of God
Dwells together in spirit
In faith and unity
Where the bonds of peace
Of acceptance and love
Are the fruit of His presence
Here among us

Chorus
So with one voice we’ll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we’ll live out His word
Till the whole earth sees
The Redeemer has come
For He dwells in the presence of His people

Verse 2
Oh how good it is
On this journey we share
To rejoice with the happy
And weep with those who mourn
For the weak find strength
The afflicted find grace
When we offer the blessing
Of belonging

Interlude
Da da da

Verse 3
Oh how good it is
To embrace His command
To prefer one another
Forgive as He forgives
When we live as one
We all share in the love
Of the Son with the Father
And the Spirit

Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)
Verse 1
One day when heaven was filled with His praises
One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin
Dwelt among men my example is He
The Word became flesh
And the light shined among us
His glory revealed

Chorus
Living He loved me dying He saved me
Buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming
O glorious day (glorious day)

Verse 2
One day they led Him up Calv’ry’s mountain
One day they nailed Him to die on a tree
Suffering anguish despised and rejected
Bearing our sins my Redeemer is He
The hand that healed nations
Stretched out on a tree
And took the nails for me

Verse 3
One day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose over death He had conquered
Now is ascended my Lord evermore
Death could not hold Him
The grave could not keep Him
From rising again

Bridge
One day the trumpet will sound for His coming
One day the skies with His glories will shine
Wonderful day my beloved one bringing
My Savior Jesus is mine

Ending
O glorious day glorious day
O glorious day

Pastoral Reading
Psalm 71:1-6 
In you, O Lord, do I take refuge;
    let me never be put to shame!
2 In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
    incline your ear to me, and save me!
3 Be to me a rock of refuge,
    to which I may continually come;
you have given the command to save me,
    for you are my rock and my fortress.
4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,
    from the grasp of the unjust and cruel man.
5 For you, O Lord, are my hope,
    my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
6 Upon you I have leaned from before my birth;
    you are he who took me from my mother’s womb.
My praise is continually of you.

Opening Hymn
We Come O Christ to You (TH #181)
1 We come, O Christ, to you,
true Son of God and man,
by whom all things consist,
in whom all life began.
In you alone we live and move
and have our being in your love.

2 You are the way to God,
your blood our ransom paid;
in you we face our Judge
and Maker unafraid.
Before the throne absolved we stand;
your love has met your law’s demand.

3 You are the living truth;
all wisdom dwells in you,
the source of every skill,
the one eternal True!
O great I AM! in you we rest,
sure answer to our every quest.

4 You only are true life
to know you is to live
the more abundant life
that earth can never give.
O risen Lord! we live in you:
in us each day your life renew!

5 We worship you, Lord Christ,
our Savior and our King;
to you our youth and strength
adoringly we bring:
so fill our hearts that all may view
your life in us and turn to you!

Offering Hymn
God’s Amazing Word (CRC #10)
1 When evil thrives in earth’s last days
and people  boast of brutal ways,
when even churches in that hour
retain the form but lost God’s pow’r,
Hold fast to everything you’ve learned,
the Word which sinful men have spurned.

2 The Bible has commanding worth
to do God’s saving work on earth;
it draws our souls from death to life
and rescues us from needless strife:
Amazing gift, on earth so odd,
the life imparting Word of God.

3 The Bible teaches us God’s will
in circumstances good and ill;
God’s Word uncovers sin’s disguise;
obeying it will make one wise.
It trains the saint to hear Christ’s voice,
to trust in him, repent, rejoice.

4 God’s Word is good for godly gain,
to teach, rebuke, correct and train;
equipped by him we can pursue
the work God has for us to do.
God’s Word is all the Christian needs to grow 
in grace and do good deeds.

5 God’s Word was written to be read,
to be our life and daily bread,
to guide our thoughts throughout the night
and lead us forth by morning’s light.
So let us read, mark, learn, digest God’s Word
which give us heaven’s best.

Closing Hymn
My Sheep Know My Voice (CRC #15)
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
