Gathering Hymn

Come Thou Fount

Verse 1
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 above
I’ll praise the mount I’m fixed upon it
Mount of thy redeeming love

Chorus 1
Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by thy help I come
And I hope by thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home

Chorus 2
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wondering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood

Verse 2
O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness 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, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above

Call To Worship

Isaiah 60

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will arise upon you,
and his glory will be seen upon you.
And nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your rising.

Violence shall no more be heard in your land,
devastation or destruction within your borders;
you shall call your walls Salvation,
and your gates Praise.

The sun shall be no more your light by day,
nor for brightness shall the moon give you light;
but the Lord will be your everlasting light,
and your God will be your glory.


Arise, Shine for Your Light has Come

Verse 1
Arise shine for your light has come and the glory of God is on you
Arise see when the earth grows dark that the Lord will arise upon you
The Lord will arise upon you

Chorus 1
Nations will come to your light lift up your eyes and see
We’ll gather together and come to you
And your love will be all that we know
Your love will be all that we know

Verse 2
Arise come to the open gates for the Father is welcoming you
Fear not for the Lord brings peace and redemption to all who believe
Redemption to all who believe

The sun will not shine cause you’ll be all the light that we need
and violence will end all the wars that we wage will cease
We will glorify your name
We will glorify your name.


Light Of Those Whose Dreary Dwelling

Verse 1
Light Of Those Whose Dreary Dwelling
Borders On The Shades Of Death,
Come, And By Thy Love’s Revealing
Dissipate The Clouds Beneath:
The New Heaven And Earth’s Creator,
In Our Deepest Darkness Rise,
Scattering All The Night Of Nature,
Pouring Eyesight On Our Eyes.

Verse 2
Still We Wait For Thine Appearing;
Life And Joy Thy Beams Impart,
Chasing All Our Fears, And Cheering
Every Poor Benighted Heart:
Come, And Manifest The Favor
God Hath For Our Ransomed Race;
Come, Thou Universal Savior,
Come, And Bring The Gospel Grace.

Verse 3
Save Us In Thy Great Compassion,
O Thou Mild, Pacific Prince;
Give The Knowledge Of Salvation,
Give The Pardon Of Our Sins:
By Thy All-Restoring Merit
Every Burdened Soul Release;
Every Weary, Wandering Spirit
Guide Into Thy Perfect Peace.

Rev. Dr. Thomas Petter

Song of Response

We will Feast in The House of Zion

Chorus 1
We will feast in the house of Zion
We will sing with our hearts restored
He has done great things we will say together
We will feast and weep no more

Verse 1
We will not be burned by the fire
He is the Lord our God
We are not consumed by the flood
Upheld protected gathered up

Verse 2
In the dark of night before the dawn
My soul be not afraid
For the promised morning oh how long
Oh God of Jacob be my strength

Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed
You are the faithful one
And from the garden to the grave
Bind us together bring shalom
