rock of ages

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From thy wounded side which flowed

Be of sin the double cure;

Save from wrath and make me pure.

Not the labors of my hands
Can fulfill thy law's demands

Could my zeal no respite know

Could my tears forever flow

All for sin could not atone

Thou must save, and thou alone.

Nothing in my hand I bring

Simply to the cross I cling

Naked, come to thee for dress

Helpless, look to thee for grace

Foul, I to the fountain fly;

Wash me, Savior, or I die.

While I draw this fleeting breath

When mine eyes shall close in death

When I soar to worlds unknown

See thee on thy judgment throne

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee.

Reflection

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
We gather this morning from all over your city;
we gather from the places you've called us to serve.

We come with hearts, minds, and hands that are full,

Lord, full of stories to tell:
stories of praise and thanksgiving,
stories of sadness and confession.
Some of us carry urgent requests for you, Lord;
we need you to move quickly in
our lives and our world.
We carry these things before you, Lord,
openly and honestly as an act of love
for you and our neighbor.
May all of our offerings
be a sacrifice of praise to you this day.
Gather our stories into your story,
gather our work into your work,
bring our lives into your life.
For you have called us here, Lord,
you have carried us,
and all these things, to you.
And so we gather, Lord, for worship,
not by our power, but by the power of your Spirit;

not in our name, but in the name of your Son.
May we, today, be a sacrifice of praise to you. Amen.

the solid rock

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness

I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand

All other ground is sinking sand

All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness veils His lovely face

I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil

His oath, His covenant, His blood

Support me in the whelming flood

When all around my soul gives way

He then is all my hope and stay

When He shall come with trumpet sound

Oh, may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone

Faultless to stand before the throne

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you. Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.

 

-Proverbs 4:23-27

Turn Your Eyes upon jesus

 

O soul, are you weary and troubled?

No light in the darkness you see?

There’s light for a look at the Savior

And life more abundant and fre

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth
Will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

Through death into life everlasting

He passed, and we follow Him there

O’er us sin no more hath dominion

For more than conqu’rors we are!

His Word shall not fail you, He promised

Believe Him and all will be well
Then go to a world that is dying
His perfect salvation to tell!

this is my father's world

 

This is my Father's world,
And to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings

The music of the spheres.
This is my Father's world:
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas

His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father's world:
The birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white

Declare their Maker's praise.
This is my Father's world:
He shines in all that's fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass

He speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father's world:
O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong,

God is the Ruler yet.
This is my Father's world:
Why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King: let the heavens ring!

God reigns; let earth be glad!
