Call to Worship Come, Behold the Wondrous Mystery
Come behold the wondrous mystery in the dawning of the King
He, the theme of heaven’s praises, robed in frail humanity
In our longing, in our darkness, now the light of life has come
Look to Christ who condescended, took on flesh to ransom us
Come behold the wondrous mystery, He the perfect Son of Man
In His living, in His suffering, never trace nor stain of sin
See the true and better Adam come to save the hell-bound man
Christ the great and sure fulfillment of the law; in Him we stand
Come behold the wondrous mystery, Christ the Lord upon the tree
In the stead of ruined sinners hangs the Lamb in victory
See the price of our redemption, see the Father’s plan unfold
Bringing many sons to glory, grace unmeasured, love untold
Come behold the wondrous mystery, slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e’er restrain Him, praise the Lord; He is alive!
What a foretaste of deliverance, how unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected as we will be when he comes

Announcing the Good News O for a Thousand Tongues #216
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! All praise to our God!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! All praise to our King!
He speaks, and listening to His voice, new life the dead receive
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice, the humble poor believe
Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb, your loosened tongues employ
Ye blind, behold your Savior come and leap, ye lame, for joy
Glory to God, and praise and love be ever, ever given
By saints below and saints above, the church in earth and heaven
Worshiping God with our Offerings Unstoppable
Worshiping God through His Word Luke 15:1-32 David King
Responding to God’s Word and Spirit Here Is Love
Here is love, vast as the ocean, lovingkindness as the flood,
When the Prince of Life, our Ransom, shed for us His precious blood.
Who His love will not remember? Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten throughout Heaven’s eternal days.
On the mount of crucifixion, fountains opened deep and wide;
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy flowed a vast and gracious tide.
Grace and love, like mighty rivers, poured incessant from above,
And Heaven’s peace and perfect justice kissed a guilty world in love.
Let me all Your love accepting, love You, ever all my days;
Let me seek Your kingdom only and my life be to Your praise;
You alone shall be my glory, nothing in the world I see.
You have cleansed and sanctified me, You Yourself have set me free.
In Your truth You now direct me by Your Spirit through Your Word;
And Your grace my need is meeting as I trust in You, my Lord.
Of Your fullness You are pouring Your great love and power on me,
Without measure, full and boundless, drawing out my heart to Thee.
