All hail the power of Jesus’ name!  Let angels prostrate fall; bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all; bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.  

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race, ye ransomed from the fall, hail Him who saves you by His grace, and crown Him Lord of all; hail Him who saves you by His grace, and crown Him Lord of all.  

Let every kindred, every tribe, on this terrestrial ball, to Him all majesty ascribe, and crown Him Lord of all; to Him all majesty ascribe, and crown Him Lord of all.  

O that with yonder sacred throng we at His feet my fall!  We’ll join the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all; we’ll join the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all.  

*RESPONSIVE READING 

Leader:  We give you all thanks and praise, O God for you have made us your own, through Christ Jesus, and given us a new righteousness based on faith. 

People:  You created the entire universe:  the sky tells of your glory, day and night reveal the genius of your ways. 

Leader:  You brought your people out of slavery and gave them your laws and commandments, that they might be rich in Spirit and clear in vision.   

People:  Though we repeatedly rejected your ways and destroyed your messengers, you sent your Son to us to renew heaven’s call.   

Leader:  Though the crowds recognized him as a prophet, those who coveted his inheritance seized and killed him. 

People:  But you raised him from the dead, and now through the power of his resurrection he stands as the cornerstone of righteousness, 

Leader:  the first fruits of the kingdom, and the incomparable prize towards which we press. 

People:  Therefore, with our hearts lifted high, we offer you thanks and praise at all times through Jesus Christ our Lord,   

Unison:  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

“Teach Me, O Lord, I Pray” – Keegan/Elvey  

Teach me, O Lord, I pray, Your precious truth divine; lead me to understand Your Word and make its precepts mine.  Impart Your wisdom, Lord, shed light upon my way, that I may know Your boundless love; teach me, O Lord, I pray.  

Train me, O Lord, I pray, in knowledge and in skill; O daily let me walk with You and do Your perfect will.  O train my heart and mind to serve You unashamed, at home, abroad, where’er the Christ has yet to be proclaimed.  

Use me, O Lord, I pray, to shed Your light sublime to rich and poor, to high and low of every race and clime.  O may Your flaming zeal burn constantly and true, till souls in darkness everywhere fall down and worship You.

*COMMITMENT HYMN………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….………… No. 488

“Come, All Christians, Be Committed” – Lloyd/Briggs  

Come, all Christians, be committed to the service of the Lord.  Make your lives for Him more fitted, tune your hearts with one accord.  Come into His courts with gladness, each your sacred vows renew, turn away from sin and sadness, be transformed with life anew.  

Give your time and talents daily, they are gifts from God above, to be used by Christians freely to proclaim His wondrous love.  Come again to serve the Savior, tithes and offerings with you bring.  In your work with Him find favor, and with joy His praises sing.  

God’s command to love each other is required of everyone.  Showing mercy to another mirrors His redeeming Son.  In compassion He has given of His love that is divine; on the cross sins were forgiven; joy and peace now fully shine.  

Come in praise and adoration, all who on Christ’s name believe.  Worship Him with consecration, grace and love you will receive.  For His grace give Him the glory, for the Spirit and the Word, and repeat the gospel story till the world His name has heard.
