PRELUDE TO “A NEW DAY”

Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past.

Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth.

Will you not be aware of it?

Isaiah 43:18-19a

PRELUDE — “This Is My Father’s World” …………………………………… arr. Payne

WELCOME

*HYMN OF GATHERING – “O Worship the King” ………………………………. No. 52

O worship the King, all glorious above,

And gratefully sing His power and His love;

Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,

Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

O tell of His might, O sing of His grace,

Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space!

His chariots of wrath the deep thunder clouds form,

And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.

Thy bountiful care, what tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,

It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,

And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.

Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail;

Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,

Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer and Friend.

*RESPONSIVE LITANY

Leader:  Wondrous God, who blesses us, loves us, leads us, and calls us,

People:  We praise You for all that has been.

Leader:  We praise You for the blessings and opportunities of today.

People:  And we praise You for what is yet to be.

LeaderOut of the turbulence of this world,

People:  Your Kingdom is surely coming.

Leader:  Shaped out of our bits of trusting, our sprigs of hoping and our                 seeds of caring.

People:  We believe we will receive from Your hand the gifts we need to become the gifts others need.

*THE DOXOLOGY

          Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

          Praise Him all creatures here below.

               By His own hand He leadeth me;

               His faithful follower I would be,

               For by His hand He leadeth me.

Lord, I would clasp Thy hand  in mine,

Nor ever murmur nor repine,

Content, whatever lot I see,

Since ‘tis Thy hand that leadeth me!

And when my task on earth is done,

When by Thy grace, the victory’s won,

E’en death’s cold wave, I will not flee,

Since God through  Jordan leadeth me!
