WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP

Song –

Come Thou Fount” by John Wyeth and Robert Robinson

CONFESSION OF SIN – Psalm 32:3-5

When I kept silent, my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer…

I acknowledged my sin to you,

and I did not cover my iniquity;

I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 32:1-2

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,

and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

Song –

No Longer Slaves” by Brian Johnson, Joel Case, and Jonathan David Helser

PRAYER – Psalm 32:6-7

Therefore let everyone who is godly

offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;

surely in the rush of great waters,

they shall not reach him.

You are a hiding place for me;

you preserve me from trouble;

you surround me with shouts of deliverance.

CHILDREN’S BLESSING & DISMISSAL – New City Catechism Q50

What does Christ’s resurrection mean for us?

Christ triumphed over sin and death

so that all who trust in him

are raised to new life in this world

and to everlasting life in the world to come.

PREPARATION – Psalm 32:8-10

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;

I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,

which must be curbed with bit and bridle,

or it will not stay near you.

Many are the sorrows of the wicked,

but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.

O Great God” by Bob Kauflin

CONFESSION OF SIN – “Yet I Sin” from The Valley of Vision: A collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions

ETERNAL FATHER, Thou art good beyond all thought,

But I am vile, wretched, miserable, blind;

My lips are ready to confess,

but my heart is slow to feel, and my ways reluctant to amend.

I bring my soul to thee; break it, wound it, bend it, mould it.

Unmask to me sin’s deformity, that I may hate it, abhor it, flee from it.

My faculties have been a weapon of revolt against thee;

as a rebel I have misused my strength, and served the foul adversary of thy kingdom.

Give me grace to bewail my insensate folly,

Grant me to know that the way of transgressors is hard,

that evil paths are wretched paths, that to depart from thee is to lose all good.

I have seen the purity and beauty of thy perfect law,

the happiness of those in whose heart it reigns,

the calm dignity of the walk to which it calls,

yet I daily violate and contemn its precepts.

Thy loving Spirit strives within me,

brings me Scripture warnings, speaks in startling providences, allures by secret whispers,

yet I choose devices and desires to my own hurt,

impiously resent, grieve, and provoke him to abandon me.

All these sins I mourn, lament, and for them cry pardon.

Work in me more profound and abiding repentance;

Give me the fullness of a godly grief that trembles and fears, yet ever trusts and loves,

which is ever powerful, and ever confident;

Grant that through the tears of repentance

I may see more clearly the brightness and glories of the saving cross.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 Corinthians 1:8-9

God will sustain you to the end,

guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God is faithful,

by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord.

Song –

He Will Hold Me Fast” by Ada Ruth Habershon and Matthew Merker

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Exodus 19:16-20

On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings

and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast,

so that all the people in the camp trembled.

Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God,

and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain.

Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke

because the Lord had descended on it in fire.

The smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln,

and the whole mountain trembled greatly.

And as the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder,

Moses spoke, and God answered him in thunder.

The Lord came down on Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain.

And the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.

Have Mercy on Me” by Dale Bischof and Pat Sczebel

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Galatians 2:16

We know that a person is not justified by works of the law

because by works of the law no one will be justified.

Amen. Praise be to God!

Oh For A Thousand Tongues to Sing” by Carl Gotthelf Glaser, Charles Wesley

CONFESSION OF SIN

EVERYONE:

Almighty and merciful God,

we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts.

We have offended against your holy laws.

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done;

and we have done those things which we ought not to have done.

O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Spare those who confess their faults.

Restore those who are repentant,

according to your promises declared to the world

in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

And grant, O merciful God, for his sake,

that we may live a holy, just, and humble life

to the glory of your holy name. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Galatians 4:4-7

When the fullness of time had come,

God sent forth his Son,

born of woman,

born under the law,

to redeem those who were under the law,

so that we might receive adoption as sons.

And because you are sons,

God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts,

crying, “Abba! Father!”

So you are no longer a slave, but a son,

and if a son, then an heir through God.
