“Bryn Myrddin

J. Morgan Nicholas (1895-1963)


Great was Christ the Lord eternal, Great to wear the flesh of man;

Great on Calvary to languish, Great to conquer death’s wise span;

Truly great His estate, King of heaven and earth innate.


Great was Jesus in God’s purpose, Great as peace the covenant gave;

Great in Bethlehem and Calv’ry, Great ascending from the grave;

Great still to fulfill, Secret pledges of God’s will.


Great is Jesus in His Person; Great as God and great as man;

Bright His countenance and beauty, On His throne in heaven’s plan.

Praises be, Great is He, We will serve Him faithfully

 Call to Worship*                                                       Psalm 118:19-21

Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord, the righteous will enter through it. I shall give thanks to Thee, for Thou hast answered me; and Thou hast become my salvation.

Hymn of Praise*                                                                            #115

“All Creatures of Our God and King”



Confession of Faith                                 The Heidelberg Catechism

Q100:  What does the preface of the Lord’s Prayer teach us?

The preface of the Lord’s Prayer, which is, “Our Father which art in heaven, “ teacheth us to draw near to God with all holy reverence and confidence, as children to a father, able and ready to help us; and that we should pray with and for others.


Q101:  What do we pray for in the first petition?

In the first petition, which is, “Hallowed be Thy name,” we pray, that God would enable us and others to glorify Him in all that whereby He maketh Himself known, and that He would dispose all things to His own glory..

Preparation for Confession of Sin                      Hebrews 12:14-17

Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled; that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. For you know that afterward, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no chance to repent, though he sought it with tears.

Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon                                      Hebrews 12:22-24

But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

Hymn of Assurance*                                                                #535

“O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus!”


Giving of Tithes and Offerings                                 Children’s Choir                            

“Hosanna! Loud Hosanna!”

Prayer of Response

Scripture Reading*                      

Psalm 118:22-26; Revelation 19:11-16

Doxology*                                                   #731

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
