Hymn 2: "If It Had Not Been for the                          Lord" #2053

If It Had, Not, Been For The Lord, On My Side Tell Me Where Would I Be?, Where Would I Be?

If It Had Not Been For The Lord On My Side Tell Me Where Would I Be? Where Would I Be?

He Kept My Enemies Awayx

He Let The Sun Shine Though A Cloudy Day He rocked Me In The Cradle Of His Arm When He Knew I Had Been Battered And Scorned,

So If it Had, Not, Been For The Lord, On My Side Tell Me Where Would I Be?, Where Would I Be?

If It Had Not Been For The Lord On My Side Tell Me Where Would I Be? Where Would I Be?

He Never Left Me All Alone

He Gave The Peace And Joy I'd Never Known He Answered When I Knelt To Really Pray And In Victory The Lord Brought Me His Way, So If it Had, Not, Been For The Lord, On My Side Tell Me Where Would I Be?, Where Would I Be?

If It Had Not Been For The Lord On My Side Tell Me Where Would I Be? Where Would I Be?

HYMN 1:   “Praise Ye the Lord”..... #258  

PRAYER OF CONFESSION:...........(In Unison)
Ever-Loving God of grace, peace, and mercy, we come with thankful hearts for the gift of our Salvation. When we have failed to let our light shine, or where we have lost opportunities to invite others to the light, we confess our faults. We ask for courage and boldness, as well as compassion for. Lost. We pray that You send us souls that are searching for light and for life that is meaningful. Forgive all our sins of thought, word and deed, we pray and lead us in the paths of righteousness and truth. Help us to be mindful of your Grace and Mercy towards us and of the need of others who are going astray. May you bring them backs as you did for us and restore us all to peace. Reconcile us in love that we may rejoice in the joy of Your Salvation. Amen


Even when our cups run dry, God's grace overflows. Even when our plates are empty, God's generosity overflows. Even when our hearts feel barren, God's love overflows. Friends, you have been called and claimed by the God of all things, and by the abundance of God's grace, and by the power of God's love, your sins have been forgiven.


Leader: Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another. The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you.

People: And peace be with you also.


I've got PEACE like a river(3Xs) in my soul - repeat
I've got JOY like a fountain(3Xs) in my soul - repeat
I've got LOVE like an ocean(3Xs) in my soul - repeat

Open our ears, Lord,

Open our eyes, Lord,
We want to see Jesus.


Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. God show us what we ought to do to obey Jesus Christ. Amen.

Invitation & Welcome to the Lord’s Table:

Communion Hymn: Let Us Break Bread                                          #513
1. Let us break bread together on our knees; (on our knees;)
Let us break bread together on our knees. (on our knees.)
When I fall on my knees,
With my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me. (on me.)

2. Let us drink wine together on our knees; (on our knees;)
Let us drink wine together on our knees. (on our knees.)
When I fall on my knees,
With my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me. (on me.)

3. Let us praise God together on our knees; (on our knees;)
Let us praise God together on our knees. (on our knees.)
When I fall on my knees,
With my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me. (on me.)

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!
