Scripture Passages and Lyrics to worship songs

Psalm 95

Leader: Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

People: Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

Leader: For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.

People: In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.

Leader: The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.

People: Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.    

An Old Testament reading from 1 Chronicles 16:23:

“Sing to the Lord all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.  Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.  For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise, he is to be feared above all gods.  Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling.  

Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.  Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him.  Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.  Tremble before him all the earth!  The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.”   

A New Testament reading from Acts 17:22-28

“Paul stood up in the middle of the Aereopagus and said; “People of Athens!  I see that in every way you are very religious.  For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship.  I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.  Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you.  

The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.  And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all people life and breath and everything else.  From one person he made every nation, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determinedthe times set for them and the exact places where they should live.  God did this so that people would seek him and perhaps reach out to him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.  ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’  We are his offspring.”           

This is the Word of the Lord.  Thanks be to God   

Just as I am, without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee
O Lamb of God, I come! I come
Just as I am, though tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt
Fighting and fears within without
O Lamb of God, I come, I come
Just as I am, Thou wilt receive
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve
Because Thy promise I believe
O Lamb of God, I come, I come

Everyone needs compassion
A love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations

Savior, he can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Forever, author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
And fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
And now I surrender

Savior, he can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Forever, author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
