Preparing to Hear God's Word

Scripture Passage:  Job 19:26-27  (Learn More)
26 And after my skin has been thus destroyed,

Preparing to Sing God's Praises

“Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)” (Listen)

                One day when heaven was filled with His praises,
                One day when sin was as black as could be,
                Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin,  dwelt among men my example is He.
                The Word became flesh and the light shined among us. His glory revealed.

                Chorus:    Living, He loved me, dying He saved me,
                                Buried, He carried my sins far away.
                                Rising, He justified freely forever. One day He's coming
                                O glorious day, glorious day. (Ending: O glorious day)

                One day they led Him up Calv'ry's mountain,
                One day they nailed Him to die on a tree. Suffering anguish, despised and rejected,
                 Bearing our sins my Redeemer is He. The hand that healed nations
                Stretched out on a tree and took the nails for me.

                One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,
                One day the stone rolled away from the door.
                Then He arose over death He had conquered. Now is ascended my Lord evermore.
                Death could not hold Him, the grave could not keep Him from rising again.

                Bridge:     One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,
                                One day the skies with His glories will shine.
                                Wonderful day my beloved one bringing. My Savior Jesus is mine.

Hymn # 253 “There is a Fountain Filled with Blood” (Listen)

There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Immanuel's veins;
and sinners, plunged beneath that flood, lose all their guilty stains:
lose all their guilty stains, lose all their guilty stains;
and sinners, plunged beneath that flood, lose all their guilty stains.

The dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain in his day;
and there have I, as vile as he, washed all my sins away:
washed all my sins away, washed all my sins away;
and there have I, as vile as he, washed all my sins away.

E'er since by faith I saw the stream your flowing wounds supply,
redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die:
and shall be till I die, and shall be till I die;
redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die.

Then in a nobler, sweeter song I'll sing your pow'r to save,
when this poor lisping, stamm'ring tongue lies silent in the grave:
lies silent in the grave, lies silent in the grave;
when this poor lisping, stamm'ring tongue lies silent in the grave.

Dear dying Lamb, your precious blood shall never lose its pow'r,
till all the ransomed church of God be saved, to sin no more:
be saved, to sin no more, be saved, to sin no more;
till all the ransomed church of God be saved to sin no more.

 


“Christ is Risen” (Listen)

Let no one caught in sin remain inside the lie of inward shame,
But fix our eyes upon the cross, and run to Him who showed great love
And bled for us, freely You've bled for us.

Chorus: Christ is risen from the dead, trampling over death by death--
              Come awake, come awake, come and rise up from the grave.
              Christ is risen from the dead, we are one with Him again--
              Come awake, come awake, come and rise up from the grave.

Beneath the weight of all our sin, You bowed to none but heaven's will;
No scheme of hell, no scoffer's crown, no burden great can hold You down.
In strength You reign; forever let Your church proclaim.              (Chorus)

Bridge:  O death, where is your sting? O hell, where is your victory?
             O church, come stand in the light; the glory of God has defeated the night.
             Singing: O death, where is your sting? O hell, where is your victory?
             O church come stand in the light; 
             Our God is not dead He's alive, He's alive!                      (Chorus)

Hymn # 277 “Christ the Lord is Risen Today”  (Listen) 

"Christ the Lord is ris'n today," Alleluia! sons of men and angels say; Alleluia!
raise your joys and triumphs high; Alleluia! Sing ye heav'ns, and earth, reply. Alleluia!

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal; Alleluia! Christ has burst the gates of hell: Alleluia!
death in vain forbids his rise; Alleluia! Christ has opened paradise. Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King; Alleluia! where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once he died, our souls to save; Alleluia! where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia! foll'wing our exalted Head; Alleluia!
made like him, like him we rise: Alleluia! ours the cross, the grave, the skies. Alleluia!

Hail, the Lord of earth and heav'n! Alleluia! Praise to thee by both be giv'n; Alleluia!
thee we greet triumphant now; Alleluia! hail, the Resurrection, thou! Alleluia!
