The Invocation And Confessional Prayer
C: Lord, to Thee I make confession; I have sinned and gone astray.
I have mulitplied trasnsgression, Chosen for myself my way.
Led by Thee to see my errors, Lord, I tremble at Thy terrors.
Yet, Thy Son did suffer for me, Gave Himself to rescue me,
Died to heal me and restore me, Reconciled me unto Thee.
‘Tis alone His cross can vanquish My dark fears & soothe my anguish.
Then on Him I cast my burden, Sink it in the depths below.
Let me know Thy gracious pardon, Wash me, make me white as snow.
Let Thy Spirit leave me never; Make me only Thine forever.
God’s Absolution (Assurance Of Forgiveness)
The Responsive Reading Of Psalm 91
P: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
C: I will say of the Lord, “He is my Refuge and my fortress, my God in Whom I trust.”
P: You will not fear the terror of night nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence or plague that seeks to destroy.
C: He will cover me with His feathers, and under His wings I will find refuge; His faithfulness shall be my shield and rampart.
Sing: Are we weary. Are we troubled, Are we sore distrest?
“Come to Me”, says One, “and coming, be at rest.”
Hath He marks to lead me to Him If He be my Guide?
In His feet and hands are woundprints, And His side.
Savior, Shepherd, ever near us, In Thy love we stand;
Guard, protect us, ever cheer us, By Thy Hand.
P: If you make the Most High your dwelling – even the Lord, Who is your Refuge – then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
C: For He will command His angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways; They will lift you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
P: “Because He loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he confesses My Name.”
C: “He will call upon Me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.”
Sing: Finding, following, keeping, struggling, Is He sure to bless?
Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs, Answer, “Yes.”
If I ask Him to receive me, Will He say me nay?
“Not till earth and not till heaven Pass away.”
If I still hold closely to Him, What hath He at last?
“Sorrow vanquished, labor ended, Jordan passed.”
The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was
conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.
The Sermon …………………………………….. Psalm 37 : 5
“Commit your way unto the Lord, trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass.”
