Congregational Hymns
Praise the Savior, Now and Ever (Trinity Hymnal #243)

1 Praise the Savior now and ever;
praise him, all beneath the skies;
prostrate lying, suff’ring, dying
on the cross, a sacrifice.
Vict’ry gaining, life obtaining,
now in glory he doth rise.

2 Man’s work faileth, Christ’s availeth;
he is all our righteousness;
he, our Savior, has forever
set us free from dire distress.
Through his merit we inherit
light and peace and happiness.

3 Sin’s bonds severed, we’re delivered;
Christ has bruised the serpent’s head;
death no longer is the stronger;
hell itself is captive led.
Christ has risen from death’s prison;
o’er the tomb he light has shed.

4 For his favor, praise for ever
unto God the Father sing;
praise the Savior, praise him ever,
Son of God, our Lord and King.
Praise the Spirit; through Christ’s merit
he doth us salvation bring.

Responsive Reading
Psalm 47 (Trinity Hymnal #803)

Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy.
How awesome is the Lord Most High,
the great King over all the earth!
He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet.

He chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.
God has ascended amid shouts of joy,

the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;

sing to him a psalm of praise.
God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.
The nobles of the nations assemble as

the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.

Opening Hymn
Psalm 47 (Psalter #47A)
