HYMN 1: "How Great Thy Art" #467


[Verse 1]

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed


[Refrain]

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!


[Verse 2]

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze


[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!







     








--------------------------------------------------

HYMN 2 "There Is Power in the Blood" (Insert)           

Would you be free from the burden of sin?

There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.


[Refrain]
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the blood of the Lamb;
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the precious blood of the Lamb.


Would you be free from your passion and pride?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide;
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.


Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Sin-stains are lost in its life-giving flow;
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.


Would you do service for Jesus your King?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Would you live daily His praises to sing?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.

COMMUNION PRAYER
P: The Lord be with you.
C: And also with you.
P: Lift up your hearts!
C: We lift them up to the Lord.
P: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
C: For it is holy and right to do so.


P: Holy and right it is, and our joyful duty to give thanks to you at all times and in all
places, O Lord our Creator, almighty and
everlasting God! You created Heaven with all its hosts and the earth with all its plenty. You have given us Life and being and preserved us by your providence. But you have shown us the fullness of your love in sending into the world your Son, Jesus Christ, the eternal Word made flesh for us and for our salvation. For the precious gift of this mighty Savior who
has reconciled us to you, we praise and bless you, O God. With your whole Church on earth and with all the company of heaven, we worship and adore your glorious name. 


All: Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts! Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!


P: Most righteous God, we remember in this Supper the perfect sacrifice offered once on the cross by our Lord Jesus Christ for the sin of the whole world. In the joy of his resurrection and in expectation of his coming again, we offer ourselves to you as holy and living sacrifices. Together we proclaim the mystery of the faith:


All: Christ has died! Christ is risen! Christ will come again.


P: Send your Holy Spirit upon us, we pray,
that the bread which we break and the cup
which we bless may be to us the communion of the body and blood of Christ. Grant that, being joined together in him, we may attain to the unity of the faith and grow up in all things into Christ our Lord. And as this grain has been gathered from many fields into one loaf, and these grapes from many fields into one cup, grant, O Lord, that your whole Church
may soon be gathered from the ends of the earth into your kingdom. Even so come Lord Jesus. The Lord Jesus, the same night he was betrayed, took bread; and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying: "Take, eat; this is my body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of me." After the same manner also, he took the cup when they had supper, saying: "This cup
is the New Testament of my blood; as often as you drink, in remembrance of me."


P: The bread which we break is the
communion of the body of Christ. The cup of blessing which we bless is the communion of the blood of Christ, Brothers and Sisters, since the Lord has fed us at his Table, let us praise God's holy name with heartfelt thanksgiving!


P: Bless the Lord O my soul; 

C: And all that is within me, bless His Holy name!

UNISON: Alleluia! For the Lord our God - The Almighty has come into His Kingdom! Let us rejoice, let us be glad with all our hearts. Let us give Him the glory for ever and ever. Amen!
