Bless the Lord, O my soul;                          MP 1259

O my soul, worship His Holy name.

Sing like never before, O my soul.

I'll worship Your Holy name.

 

The sun comes up,

It's a new day dawning;

It's time to sing Your song again.

Whatever may pass

And whatever lies before me,

Let me be singing

When the evening comes.

 

You're rich in love

And You're slow to anger,

Your name is great

And Your heart is kind.

For all Your goodness

I will keep on singing;

Ten thousand reasons

For my heart to find.

 

And on that day

When my strength is failing,

The end draws near

And my time has come,

Still my soul will

Sing Your praise unending:

Ten thousand years

And then for evermore!

 

Call to worship              Lamentations 3.22-23

 

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven           MP 560

To His feet thy tribute bring;

Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,

Who like me His praise should sing?

Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!

Praise the everlasting King.

 

Praise Him for His grace and favour,

To our fathers in distress

Praise Him still the same for ever,

Slow to chide and swift to bless

Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!

Glorious in His faithfulness.

 

Father-like He tends and spares us,

Well our feeble frame He know

In His hands He gently bears us,

Rescues us from all our foes

Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!

Widely as His mercy flows.

 

Angels, help us to adore Him,

Ye behold Him face to face

Sun and moon, bow down before Him,

Dwellers all in time and space

Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!

Praise with us the God of grace.

 

Prayer of adoration and confession

 

Together Time               When one door closes…

 

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,              MP 932 v.1,2,3,5

Through eternal ages let His praises ring,

Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God my Saviour;

Standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.

 

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

By the living Word of God I shall prevail,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

Standing on the promises I now can see

Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;

Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,

Listening every moment to the Spirit’s call.

Resting in my Saviour as my all in all,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

Bible Reading                Philippians 1.1-11 (p.1178)

 

A debtor to mercy alone,                           Praise! 773

Of covenant-mercy I sing;

Nor fear, with Your righteousness on,

My person and offering to bring:

The terrors of law and of God

With me can have nothing to do;

My Saviour’s obedience and blood

Hide all my transgressions from view.

                                                   

The work which His goodness began,

The arm of His strength will complete;

His promise is ‘Yes’ and ‘Amen’,           

And never was forfeited yet:

Things future, nor things that are now,

Nor all things below or above,

Can make Him His purpose forgo,

Or sever my soul from His love.

 

Eternity will not erase

My name from the palms of His hands;

In marks of indelible grace

Impressed on His heart it remains:

Yes, I to the end shall endure,

As sure as the promise is given;

More happy, but not more secure,

The glorified spirits in heaven.

 

Sermon                         

 

Soldiers of Christ, arise,                             MP 604

And put your armour on,

Strong in the strength which God supplies,

Through His eternal Son.

Strong in the Lord of Hosts,

And in His mighty power;

Who in the strength of Jesus trusts

Is more than conqueror.

 

Stand then in His great might,

With all His strength endued;

And take, to arm you for the fight,

The panoply of God:

To keep your armour bright

Attend with constant care,

Still walking in your Captain’s sight

And watching unto prayer.

 

From strength to strength go on;

Wrestle, and fight, and pray;

Tread all the powers of darkness down,

And win the well-fought day.

That, having all things done,

And all your conflicts past,

Ye may o’ercome through Christ alone,

And stand complete at last.

 

Prayer of thanksgiving and intercession

 

Guide me, O thou great Jehovah                         MP 201

Pilgrim through this barren land;

I am weak, but thou art mighty;

Hold me with thy powerful hand:

Bread of heaven, bread of heaven

Feed me now and evermore.

Feed me now and evermore.

 

Open now the crystal fountain

Whence the healing stream shall flow;

Let the fire and cloudy pillar

Lead me all my journey through:

Strong deliverer, strong deliverer

Be thou still my strength and shield.

Be thou still my strength and shield.

 

When I tread the verge of Jordan,

Bid my anxious fears subside;

Death of death, and hell's destruction,

Land me safe on Canaan's side:

Songs of praises, songs of praises

I will ever give to thee.

I will ever give to thee.

 

Blessing
