The Old Rugged Cross
Litany & Invocation
Leader: Brothers and sisters, the love of God is poured over you.
People: We feel our thirsting souls quenched by God’s mercy.
Leader: We are called to share God’s love by our words.
People: We are invited to share God’s love by our compassionate acts.
Leader: Come, let us worship the Lord!
People: Let us bow down and proclaim God’s goodness
Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
Come, Thou fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing Thy grace; Streams of mercy, never ceasing, Call for songs of loudest praise: Teach me some melodious sonnet, Sung by flaming tongues
Here I raise mine Ebenezer; Hither by Thy help I’m come; And I hope, by Thy good pleasure, Safely to arrive at home: Jesus sought me when a stranger, Wandering from the fold of God; He, to rescue me from danger, Interposed His precious blood.
O to grace how great a debtor Daily I’m constrained to be! Let Thy grace, Lord, like a fetter, Bind my wandering heart to Thee: Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love; Here’s my heart, Lord, take and seal it; Seal it for Thy courts above.
First Lesson & Pastoral Prayer
Rendering Unto Caesar or God?
More Precious than Silver
Lord, You are more precious than silver; Lord, You are more costly than gold. Lord,
You are more beautiful than diamonds, And nothing I desire compares with You.
