WE GATHER TO WORSHIP OUR GOD
Welcome, God’s Greeting and Call to Worship (Rev 1:5b)
To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,
and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—
to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.
Opening Song: All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name
OUR NEW LIFE IN CHRIST (based on Psalm 130 – on screen)
Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his Word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem. It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.
