come to the waters.

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus Helen H. Lemmel/arr. Kerry Beaumont

Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face;

and the things of this earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

Go Not Far from Me, O God Nicola Zingarelli/arr. Robert Volkman

Go not far from me, O God; cast me not away in the time of age: forsake me not when my strength fails me. O let my mouth be filled with Thy praise: so that I may sing Thy glory and honor all the day long.

Call to Worship

Doxology (Trinity Hymnal 731) Old Hundredth

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow; praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Prayer of Confession

O Lord our God, we have not obeyed Your Word, nor heeded what is written in the Scriptures.

We have erred and strayed from Your ways like lost sheep, each of us going our own way,

rather than Your way. We have done those things that we ought not to have done,

and we have left undone those things that we ought to have done, and there is no health in us.

We heartily repent of all our sins. Unworthy as we are, we humble ourselves before You.

In Your mercy forgive us, grant us Your peace and the strength to keep Your laws and to follow Your way; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into ­­heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

Hymn 10: Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Alleluia

Prayer of Confession

O God, we rejoice in the perfections of Your Word, that in the Scriptures You have revealed Your love for us in Jesus Christ and how we might love You in return. Lord, we confess that what we know and how we live don’t always line up. We say we believe, we say we trust, and yet our actions reveal our true selves before You. Have mercy on our wandering hearts, and pity on our weakness. Teach us not only to know Your Word, but how to live and die by it. May Your Spirit illumine our lives, and lead us in paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Amen.

The Gospel’s Assurance of Pardon: Colossians 1:13–14

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

About Worship

The Lord’s Supper

The Lord’s supper is a sacrament of the New Testament, wherein, by giving and receiving bread and wine according to the appointment of Jesus Christ, his death is showed forth; and they that worthily communicate feed upon his body and blood, to their spiritual nourishment and growth in grace; have their union and communion with him confirmed; testify and renew their thankfulness, and engagement to God, and their mutual love and fellowship each with other, as members of the same mystical body. 1
