Call to Worship (based on themes from Psalm 139. Adapted from re-worship.blogspot.com)

We gather together to worship our loving, nurturing God, who, like a mother, knows us intimately, loves us unconditionally, teaches us the way we should go,

and comforts us in times of need. God loved us before we were yet born. God knows us even better than we know ourselves. His presence never leaves us and his love for us never ceases. This is our God. Let’s worship together!

 

Hymn- Old Rugged Cross

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,

The emblem of suff’ring and shame,

And I love that old cross where the Dearest and Best

For a world of lost sinners was slain.

        

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,

Till my trophies at last I lay down;

I will cling to the old rugged cross,

And exchange it some day for a crown.

 

Oh, that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,

Has a wondrous attraction for me;

For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above,

To bear it to dark Calvary.

 

In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,

A wondrous beauty I see;

For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,

To pardon and sanctify me.

The 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.

 

A Prayer for Mother’s Day

 

Hymn- How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder,

Consider all the works Thy hands have made;

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

 

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,

How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,

How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

 

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,

And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.

When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur

And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

 

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;

Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;

That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,

He bled and died to take away my sin.

 

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,

And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.

Then shall I bow, in humble adoration,

And then proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!"
