“Price”

Daniel Protheroe (1866-1934)

 

Here my eyes on Calv’ry, Calv’ry is my bright world now;

There a deathless grace, amazing, Falls like dew upon its brow:

Hill of Calv’ry, Hill of Calv’ry, There, my soul, make Thou thy nest.

 

There I hear the breeze deliver Psalms of heav’n to earth below;

Which were taught by Babel’ river In the land of wail and woe:

Hill of Calv’ry, Hill of Calv’ry, Makes the earth aglow with heav’n.

 

Here behold a sinner pleading, Wither’d in a flame of wrong;

From his captive chains now speeding, And to heav’n he leaps along:

Hill of Calv’ry, Hill of Calv’ry, Ever now his song shall be!  Amen.

Call to Worship*                                                                Hebrews 1:1-3

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high....

Psalm of Praise*                                                                           #92

“A Mighty Fortress is Our God”

Invocation*

Confession of Faith                                            The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Confession of Sin                                      1 Corinthians 11:27-30

Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep.
