THE OPENING HYMN
“O God of Light”
1 O God of light, Your Word, a lamp unfailing,
Shall pierce the darkness of our earthbound way
And show Your grace, Your plan for us unveiling,
And guide our footsteps to the perfect day.

2 From days of old, through blind and willful ages,
Though we rebelled, You gently sought again
And spoke through saints, apostles, prophets, sages,
Who wrote with eager or reluctant pen.

3 Undimmed by time, those words are still revealing
To sinful hearts Your justice and Your grace;
And questing spirits, longing for Your healing,
See Your compassion in the Savior’s face.

4 To all the world Your summons You are sending,
Through all the earth, to ev’ry land and race,
That myriad tongues, in one great anthem blending,
May praise and celebrate Your gift of grace.
THE INVOCATION
P: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen.

THE CONFESSION AND ABSOLUTION
P: Out of the depths I cry to You, O Lord;
C: O Lord, hear my voice!
P: If You, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord who could stand?
C: But with You there is forgiveness, that You may be feared. (Psalm 130:1-4)
P: We seek our forgiveness in Jesus, as we confess our sins to Him:
C: Lord, we are covered with dirt and shame, yet cleansed by Your blood. We are far from perfect, yet You have fixed Your forgiveness forever. Though our sins are many, Your sacrifice canceled them, once and for all. Let Your forgiveness flow from Your cross into our bodies and souls. Amen.
P: Standing in the command of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I announce God’s free and full forgiveness as you turn from your sins. Live whole and be at peace, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen.

PSALM OF THE DAY……………………Psalm 25:15-18
P: My eyes are ever toward the Lord,
C: for he will pluck my feet out of the net.
P: Turn to me and be gracious to me,
C: for I am lonely and afflicted.
P: The troubles of my heart are enlarged;
C: bring me out of my distresses.
P: Consider my affliction and my trouble,
C: and forgive all my sins.
P: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit;
C: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

THE HYMN OF PRAISE: The Lamb
The Lamb, the Lamb,
O Father, where’s the sacrifice?
Faith sees, believes
God will provide the Lamb of price!
Worthy is the Lamb whose death makes me His own!
The Lamb is reigning on His throne!

THE PRAYER OF THE DAY
P: Gracious Lord, we thank You that You deal with us, not according to our sin, but according to Your mercy. We stand beneath Your cross and find peace, life and salvation in Your pronouncement that sin is forgiven and life is renewed and eternal. It is in Your name we pray.
C: Amen.
P: This is the Word of the Lord.
C: Thanks be to God.
P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise be to You, O Christ ♫


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 His 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 at the right hand of the Father; And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead; whose kingdom will have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Spirit, 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 one holy Christian 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.

THE SERMON HYMN Christ the Eternal Lord
1 Christ the eternal Lord,
Whose promise here we claim,
Whose gifts of grace are freely poured
On all who name Your name;
With thankfulness and praise
We stand before Your throne,
Intent to serve You all our days
And make Your glory known.

2 Christ the unchanging Word
To ev’ry passing age,
Whose timeless teachings still are heard
Set forth on Scripture’s page;
Transform our thought and mind,
Enlighten all who read,
Within Your Word by faith to find
The bread of life indeed.

3 Christ the redeeming Son,
Who shares our human birth,
And by His death salvation won
For ev’ry child of earth;
Inspire our hearts, we pray,
To tell Your love abroad,
That all may honor Christ today
And follow Him as Lord.

4 Christ the unfading Light
Of everlasting day,
Our Morning Star in splendor bright,
The Life, the Truth, the Way;
That light of truth You give
To servants as to friends,
Your way to walk, Your life to live,
Till earth’s brief journey ends.

5 Christ the ascended King
Exalted high above,
Whose praise unending ages sing,
Whom yet unseen we love;
When mortal life is past
Your voice from heaven’s throne
Shall call Your children home at last
To know as we are known.

THE CLOSING HYMN
We Praise You and Acknowledge You, O God
1 We praise You and acknowledge You, O God, to be the Lord,
The Father everlasting, by all the earth adored.
To You all angel powers cry aloud, the heavens sing,
The cherubim and seraphim their praises to You bring:
“O holy, holy, holy Lord God of Sabaoth;
Your majesty and glory fill the heavens and the earth!”

2 The band of the apostles in glory sing Your praise;
The fellowship of prophets their deathless voices raise.
The martyrs of Your kingdom, a great and noble throng,
Sing with the holy Church throughout all the world this song:
“O all-majestic Father, Your true and only Son,
And Holy Spirit, Comforter—forever Three in One!”

3 You, Christ, are King of glory, the everlasting Son,
Yet You, with boundless love, sought to rescue ev’ryone:
You laid aside Your glory, were born of virgin’s womb,
Were crucified for us and were placed into a tomb;
Then by Your resurrection You won for us reprieve—
You opened heaven’s kingdom to all who would believe.

4 You sit in splendid glory, enthroned at God’s right hand,
Upholding earth and heaven by forces You command.
We know that You will come as our Judge that final day,
So help Your servants You have redeemed by blood, we pray;
May we with saints be numbered where praises never end,
In glory everlasting. Amen, O Lord, amen!
