Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,
who rules all Creation:
My soul, praise God, who alone
is your health and salvation.
Come, all who hear,
sisters and brothers draw near,
joining in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord, who in all things
so wondrously reigning
hides you with sheltering wings,
ever gently sustaining.
Have you not seen
how your heart’s wishes have been
granted through God’s kind ordaining?

Praise to the Lord,
who will prosper your work,
who defends you.
Surely God’s merciful goodness
here daily attends you;
Ponder anew, what the Almighty can do,
when in great love God befriends you.

1 O sing to the Lord a new song,
for He has done marvelous things.
His right hand and His holy arm
have gotten Him victory.
2 The Lord has made known His victory;
He has revealed His vindication in the sight
of the nations.

3 He has remembered His steadfast
love and faithfulness to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
the victory of our God.
4 Make a joyful noise to the Lord,
all the earth;
break forth into joyous song
and sing praises.

5 Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
with the lyre and the sound of melody.
6 With trumpets and the sound of the horn
make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord.

7 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
the world and those who live in it.
8 Let the floods clap their hands;
let the hills sing together for joy

9 at the presence of the Lord,
for He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with equity. Amen!


Here is Bread, Here is Wine

Here is bread; here is wine:
Christ is with us: He is with us.
Break the bread; taste the wine:
Christ is with us here.

Here is grace; here is peace:
Christ is with us: He is with us.
Know His grace; find His peace:
feast on Jesus here.

In this bread, there is healing;
in this cup there’s life forever.
In this moment, by the Spirit,
Christ is with us here.

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, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell.
The third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and sits 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 catholic Church;
the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.


My Hope is Built on Nothing Less

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 hides His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
in every high and stormy gale
my anchor holds within the veil.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

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.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
