Opening Hymn

A Might Fortress Is Our God

Verse 1
A mighty fortress is our God
A bulwark never failing
Our helper He amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing
For still our ancient foe
Doth seek to work us woe
His craft and pow’r are great
And armed with cruel hate
On earth is not his equal

Verse 2
Did we in our own strength confide
Our striving would be losing
Were not the right Man on our side
The Man of God’s own choosing
Dost ask who that may be
Christ Jesus it is He
Lord Sabaoth His name
From age to age the same
And He must win the battle

Verse 3
And tho’ this world with devils filled
Should threaten to undo us
We will not fear for God hath willed
His truth to triumph thru us
The prince of darkness grim
We tremble not for him
His rage we can endure
For lo his doom is sure
One little word shall fell him

Verse 4
That word above all earthly pow’rs
No thanks to them abideth
The Spirit and the gifts are ours
Thru Him who with us sideth
Let goods and kindred go
This mortal life also
The body they may kill
God’s truth abideth still
His kingdom is forever

Call to Worship

Psalm 146

I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
Do not put your trust in princes,
in human beings, who cannot save.

Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them—
he remains faithful forever.

He upholds the cause of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
the Lord gives sight to the blind,

The Lord reigns forever,
your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord!

Gathering Hymn

The Love of the Father

Verse 1
Lift up your voices and lift up your praise
Join with the heavens declaring
The wonders of His faithfulness

Verse 2
Sing of the victory the hope of the world
The Saviour has risen
The Spirit has come to bring us into love

Oh we are the people of God
With the freedom of hope in our hearts
How great is the love of the Father

Verse 3
Lifted from darkness and into the light
The sons and the daughters are loved at a price
Our God has made us His

This is the song of the redeemed
The ransomed and the free
Given life at such a price
This is love this is love
And when the Father calls us home
And we see Him on the throne
Hear the voices sing as one
This is love this is love


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

You Crown the Year

Verse 1
You crown the year with Your goodness
You answer us with awesome deeds
Your hope resounds God our Saviour
To distant lands and farthest seas

Verse 2
O paint the fields bright and golden
Drench the harvest with Your rain
God’s river filled with living water
That flows to all as You ordained

Chorus 1
Praise the Name of the Lord
O my soul sing His worth
All of life join the song
Come and lift up our King

Verse 3
Now let the earth join the dancing
Deck her out in showers of spring
The dusk and dawn forever relay
The call to come and worship Him

Holy holy
Worthy are You Lord
All the glory
To Your Name forever

You crown the year with Your goodness
You answer us with awesome deeds

Closing Song

Come People of the Risen King

Chorus 1
Rejoice rejoice let ev’ry tongue rejoice
One heart one voice
O Church of Christ rejoice

Verse 1
Come people of the Risen King
Who delight to bring Him praise
Come all and tune your hearts to sing
To the Morning Star of grace
From the shifting shadows of the earth
We will lift our eyes to Him
Where steady arms of mercy reach
To gather children in

Verse 2
Come those whose joy is morning sun
And those weeping through the night
Come those who tell of battles won
And those struggling in the fight
For His perfect love will never change
And His mercies never cease
But follow us through all our days
With the certain hope of peace

Verse 3
Come young and old from ev’ry land
Men and women of the faith
Come those with full or empty hands
Find the riches of His grace
Over all the world His people sing
Shore to shore we hear them call
The truth that cries through ev’ry age
Our God is all in all
