Litany & Invocation
Leader: God, who creates rushing springs of thirst-quenching water from dry ground, will provide generously for you.
People: Lord, thank you for quenching our thirst and guiding our lives.
Leader: God, who creates hope out of darkness when you thought that all was lost, will protect you.
People: Lord, we praise you for the beam of hope which penetrates the darkness of our unbelief.
Leader: God guides you and protects you; God watches over you and loves you unconditionally.
People: Lord, open our hearts this day that we may live in the love and protection you have provided.
We Praise You, O God, Our Redeemer
We praise You, O God, our Redeemer, Creator, In grateful devotion our tribute we bring. We lay it before You, we kneel and adore You, We bless Your holy name, glad praises we sing.
We worship You, God of our fathers, we bless You; Through life’s storm and tempest our Guide You have been. When perils o’er take us, You will not forsake us, And with Your help, O Lord, our battles we win.
With voices united our praises we offer, And gladly our songs of thanksgiving we raise. With You, Lord, beside us, Your strong arm will guide us. To You, our great Redeemer, forever be praise.

At the Cross
1 John 3:1-3
Que Sera, Sera
Oh, How He Loves You and Me
Oh, how He loves you and me. Oh, how He loves you and me; He gave His life, what more could He give? Oh, how He loves you; Oh how He love me; Oh how He loves you and me!
Jesus to Calvary did go, His love for mankind to show; What he did there brought hope from despair. Oh, how He loves you; Oh, how He loves me; Oh, how He loves you and me!
