Prelude


Gathering Hymn

All Glory Laud and Honor

Verse 1
All glory laud and honor
To Thee Redeemer King
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring
Thou art the King of Israel
Thou David’s royal Son
Who in the Lord’s name comest
The King and Blessed One

Verse 2
The company of angels
Are praising Thee on high
And mortal men and all
Things created make reply
The people of the Hebrews
With palms before Thee went
Our praise and prayer and anthems
Before Thee we present

Verse 3
To Thee before Thy passion
They sang their hymns of praise
To Thee now high exalted
Our melody we raise
Thou didst accept their praises
Accept the praise we bring
Who in all good delightest
Thou good and gracious King


Call To Worship

Psalm 118

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!

Let all the men say:
(men) “His steadfast love endures forever.”
Let all the women say:
(women) “His steadfast love endures forever.”
Let all the children say:
(children) “His steadfast love endures forever.”

Open to me the gates of righteousness,
that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord.
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

Hosanna to the Son of David, the King of Israel.
Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Sin and death no more can enslave us.
His beauty and his pow’r, displayed at Calvary,
lift a song of praise to the Lord!

Praise

Before the Throne of God

Verse 1
Before the Throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great High Priest Whose Name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His Hands
My name is written on His Heart
I know that while in Heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart

Verse 2
When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me

Chorus
Hosanna, Hosanna, to the lamb that was slain
Hosanna, Hosanna, Jesus died and rose again

Verse 3
Before Him there the Risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The unchangeable I Am
The King of Glory and of Grace
One in Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased with His Blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God


Doxology

Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly host
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Amen.

Song of Response

Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor

Verse 1
Christ the sure and steady anchor
In the fury of the storm
When the winds of doubt blow through me
And my sails have all been torn

Chorus 1
In the suffering in the sorrow
When my sinking hopes are few
I will hold fast to the anchor
It shall never be removed

Verse 2
Christ the sure and steady anchor
While the tempest rages on
When temptation claims the battle
And it seems the night has won

Chorus 2
Deeper still then goes the anchor
Though I justly stand accused
I will hold fast to the anchor
It shall never be removed

Verse 3
Christ the sure and steady anchor
Through the floods of unbelief
Hopeless somehow O my soul now
Lift your eyes to Calvary

Chorus 3
This my ballast of assurance
See His love forever proved
All my hope is in the anchor
It shall never be removed

Verse 4
Christ the sure and steady anchor
As we face the wave of death
When these trials give way to glory
As we draw our final breath

Chorus 4
We will cross that great horizon
Clouds behind and life secured
And the calm will be the better
For the storms that we endured

Chorus 5
Christ the shore of our salvation
Ever faithful ever true
We will hold fast to the anchor
It shall never be removed


Benediction
Rev. Dr. Thomas Petter
