“Come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.”

Psalm 95

 

“Llef”

Griffith Hugh Jones (1849-1919)

 

Come, gracious Lord, descend and dwell,

By faith and love, in every breast;

Then shall we know, and taste

and feel the joys that cannot be expressed.

 

Come, fill our hearts with inward strength,

Make our enlarged souls possess,

And learn the height, and breadth,

and length of Thine eternal love and grace.

 

Now to the God whose power can do

More than our thoughts and wishes know,

Be everlasting honors done --

by all the Church, through Christ, His Son.  Amen .

Call to Worship*                                                           Psalm 147:1-6

Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is becoming. The Lord builds up Jerusalem; He gathers the outcasts of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; His understanding is beyond measure. The Lord supports the afflicted; He casts the wicked to the ground.

Hymn of Praise*                                                                            #170

“Fairest Lord Jesus”

Invocation*

Confession of Faith                          Westminster Larger Catechism

Question 168

The Lord’s Supper is a sacrament of the New Testament, wherein, by giving and receiving bread and wine according to the appointment of Jesus Christ, his death is showed forth; and they that worthily communicate feed upon his body and blood, to their spiritual nourishment and growth in grace; have their union and communion with him confirmed; testify and renew their thankfulness, and engagement to God, and their mutual love and fellowship each with other, as members of the same mystical body.

Preparation for Confession of Sin                           Ephesians 5:3-5

But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon                                        Ephesians 5:7-10

Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.

Hymn of Assurance*                                                                #495

is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Amen, amen.
