CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 33:1-4

Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous!

    Praise befits the upright.

Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre;

    make melody to him with the harp of ten strings!

Sing to him a new song;

    play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.

For the word of the Lord is upright,

    and all his work is done in faithfulness.

Let’s stand and sing and give thanks to the Lord who does all things well!

Holy, Holy, Holy” by John Bacchus Dykes and Reginald Heber


In light of the awesome and terrifying holiness of God, 

the prophet Isaiah cries out in Isaiah 6:5:

Woe is me! 

For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, 

and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; 

for my eyes have seen the King, 

the LORD of hosts!

As we reflect on the awesome holy splendor of our God,

let us also remember that we are an unclean people. 

Because of our sin, none of us are fit to stand before his presence, 

and all of us stand condemned.

Let’s take this moment now to pray in our hearts, asking God to be merciful to sinners like us and to once again cleanse us from all of our unrighteousness.

(Moment of Silence)


Not in Me” by David L. Ward and Eric Shumacher


The one of the seraphim flew to me,

Having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar.

And he touched my mouth and said:

“Behold, this has touched your lips; 

your guilt is taken away, 

and your sin atoned for.”

While there is nothing we can do to wash the stain of sin away, 

Jesus Christ in his mercy promises cleansing and purity to those who repent and trust in him!

Because of what Christ has done on the cross, 

God’s people can now celebrate in his presence 

declaring his goodness and extolling the riches of his grace.

Let’s stand and sing together!

Only a Holy God” by Dustin Smith, Jonny Robinson, Michael Farren, and Rich Thompson

SCRIPTURE READING – Psalm 106  Instruct the Congregation to Stand. End with “This is the Word of the Lord.” 

(congregation stands)

Praise the Lord!

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,

    for his steadfast love endures forever!

Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord,

    or declare all his praise?

Blessed are they who observe justice,

    who do righteousness at all times!

Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people;

    help me when you save them,

that I may look upon the prosperity of your chosen ones,

    that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation,

    that I may glory with your inheritance.

Both we and our fathers have sinned;

    we have committed iniquity; we have done wickedness.

Our fathers, when they were in Egypt,

    did not consider your wondrous works;

they did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love,

    but rebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea.

Yet he saved them for his name’s sake,

    that he might make known his mighty power.

He rebuked the Red Sea, and it became dry,

    and he led them through the deep as through a desert.

So he saved them from the hand of the foe

    and redeemed them from the power of the enemy.

And the waters covered their adversaries;

    not one of them was left.

Then they believed his words;

    they sang his praise.

But they soon forgot his works;

    they did not wait for his counsel.

But they had a wanton craving in the wilderness,

    and put God to the test in the desert;

he gave them what they asked,

    but sent a wasting disease among them.

When men in the camp were jealous of Moses

    and Aaron, the holy one of the Lord,

the earth opened and swallowed up Dathan,

    and covered the company of Abiram.

Fire also broke out in their company;

    the flame burned up the wicked.

They made a calf in Horeb

    and worshiped a metal image.

They exchanged the glory of God

    for the image of an ox that eats grass.

They forgot God, their Savior,

    who had done great things in Egypt,

wondrous works in the land of Ham,

    and awesome deeds by the Red Sea.

Therefore he said he would destroy them—

    had not Moses, his chosen one,

stood in the breach before him,

    to turn away his wrath from destroying them.

Then they despised the pleasant land,

    having no faith in his promise.

They murmured in their tents,

    and did not obey the voice of the Lord.

Therefore he raised his hand and swore to them

    that he would make them fall in the wilderness,

and would make their offspring fall among the nations,

    scattering them among the lands.

Then they yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor,

    and ate sacrifices offered to the dead;

they provoked the Lord to anger with their deeds,

    and a plague broke out among them.

Then Phinehas stood up and intervened,

    and the plague was stayed.

And that was counted to him as righteousness

    from generation to generation forever.

They angered him at the waters of Meribah,

    and it went ill with Moses on their account,

for they made his spirit bitter,

    and he spoke rashly with his lips.

They did not destroy the peoples,

    as the Lord commanded them,

but they mixed with the nations

    and learned to do as they did.

They served their idols,

    which became a snare to them.

They sacrificed their sons

    and their daughters to the demons;

they poured out innocent blood,

    the blood of their sons and daughters,

whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan,

    and the land was polluted with blood.

Thus they became unclean by their acts,

    and played the whore in their deeds.

Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people,

    and he abhorred his heritage;

he gave them into the hand of the nations,

    so that those who hated them ruled over them.

Their enemies oppressed them,

    and they were brought into subjection under their power.

Many times he delivered them,

    but they were rebellious in their purposes

    and were brought low through their iniquity.

Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress,

    when he heard their cry.

For their sake he remembered his covenant,

    and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.

He caused them to be pitied

    by all those who held them captive.

Save us, O Lord our God,

    and gather us from among the nations,

that we may give thanks to your holy name

    and glory in your praise.

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,

    from everlasting to everlasting!

And let all the people say, “Amen!”

    Praise the Lord!
