You’re the Word of God the Father                    MP 1141

From before the world began.

Every star and every planet

Has been fashioned by Your hand.

All creation holds together

By the power of Your voice.

Let the skies declare Your glory;

Let the land and seas rejoice!

 

You’re the Author of creation;

You’re the Lord of every man;

And Your cry of love rings out

Across the lands.

 

Yet You left the gaze of angels,

Came to seek and save the lost,

And exchanged the joy of heaven

For the anguish of a cross.

With a prayer You fed the hungry;

With a word You stilled the sea;

Yet how silently You suffered

That the guilty may go free!

 

With a shout You rose victorious,

Wresting victory from the grave,

And ascended into heaven,

Leading captives in Your way.

Now You stand before the Father,

Interceding for Your own;

From each tribe and tongue and nation,

You are leading sinners home!

 

Welcome and notices

 

Call to worship              Joel 2.28-29,32a (p.913)

 

All people that on earth do dwell,            CH4 63

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.

Him serve with mirth, His praise forth tell,

Come ye before Him and rejoice.

 

Know that the Lord is God indeed;

Without our aid He did us make:

We are His flock, He doth us feed,

And for His sheep He doth us take.

 

O enter then His gates with praise,

Approach with joy His courts unto:

Praise, laud, and bless His name always,

For it is seemly so to do.

 

For why? The Lord our God is good,

His mercy is for ever sure;

His truth at all times firmly stood,

And shall from age to age endure.

 

Prayer of approach to God

 

Together Time

 

Your Word is good, it’s ever faithful,

Worth more than gold, the heart’s delight.

Your Word gives life to all who hear and obey,

Your Word endures forever.

 

Your Word is true, it never changes,

It formed the earth; sustains it still.

Your Word defends; providing refuge and strength, 

Your Word endures forever.

 

Your Word is a lamp unto my feet.

Your Word is a light unto my path.

For Your Word is my hope, it’s my joy and my song.

Your Word endures forever.

 

Your Word transforms, it lifts the humble;

Rebukes the proud, protects the poor.

Your Word discerns the mind and spirit of all,

Your Word endures forever.

 

Your Word is more than just letters on pages;

It’s life and it's love and it's freedom for us.

Your Word is more than just wisdom of ages;

Its treasures are endless, it's always enough.

 

Your Word is more than just stories of old;

It's the truth and the way and the story of love.

Your Word is more than just breath into dust;

It’s Your Son, as a man, come to dwell here with us.

Bible reading                 Acts 2.1-8,14-18,22-24,33,37-39 (p.1093)

 

O day of joy and wonder!                CH4 582

Christ’s promise now fulfilled:

The coming of the Spirit

That holy love has willed.

Our Lord in human body

o mortal eye is lost,

Yet comes in wind and fire

At blessed Pentecost.

 

The world, in sheer amazement,

The truth must now declare:

That those who once were cowards

Are brave beyond compare;

And tongues, which could not utter

Their faith in Jesus’ name,

Defy all persecution

God’s glory to proclaim!

 

We too may know Your power;

Your courage makes us strong.

Your love, Your joy, Your patience

Can all to us belong.

Come now and dwell within us,

O Comforter divine.

Come to our hearts, and keep them;

There let Your brightness shine.

 

Sermon

 

Facing a task unfinished                   MP 126

That drives us to our knees

A need that, undiminished

Rebukes our slothful ease

We, who rejoice to know Thee

Renew before Thy throne

The solemn pledge we owe Thee

To go and make Thee known.

 

Where other lords beside Thee

Hold their unhindered sway

Where forces that defied Thee

Defy Thee still today

With none to heed their crying

For life, and love, and light

Unnumbered souls are dying

And pass into the night.

 

We bear the torch that flaming

Fell from the hands of those

Who gave their lives proclaiming

That Jesus died and rose

Ours is the same commission

The same glad message ours

Fired by the same ambition

To Thee we yield our powers.

 

O Father who sustained them

O Spirit who inspired

Saviour, whose love constrained them

To toil with zeal untired

From cowardice defend us

From lethargy awake!

Forth on Thine errands send us

To labour for Thy sake.

 

Prayer of thanksgiving and intercession

 

Go forth and tell! O church of God, awake!                 MP 178

God's saving news to all the nations take;

Proclaim Christ Jesus, Saviour, Lord, and King,

That all the world His worthy praise may sing.

 

Go forth and tell! God's love embraces all;

He will in grace respond to all who call:

How shall they call if they have never heard

The gracious invitation of His Word?

 

Go forth and tell!  Men still in darkness lie;

In wealth or want, in sin they live and die:

Give us, O Lord, concern of heart and mind,

A love like Yours which cares for all mankind.

 

Go forth and tell!  The doors are opened wide:

Share God’s good gifts – let no-one be denied;

Live out your life as Christ your Lord shall choose,

Your ransomed powers for His sole glory use.

 

Go forth and tell! O church of God, arise!

Go in the strength which Christ your Lord supplies;

Go till all nations His great name adore

And serve Him, Lord and King for evermore!

 

Blessing
