Opening Prayer

Hymn – Joy to the World!

Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room,
And heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n, and heav’n and nature sing.

Joy to the earth! the Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love.

Hymn – Wonderful, Merciful Savior

Wonderful merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would have thought that a Lamb could
rescue the souls of men?
Oh You rescue the souls of men!

Counselor Comforter Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
hopelessly lost the way
Oh we’ve hopelessly lost the way

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, Infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh we’re falling before Your throne!

Prayer

Hymn – I Love the Windows of Thy Grace

I love the windows of Thy grace
Through which my Lord is seen
Which my Lord is seen
And long to meet my Saviour’s face
Without a glass between,
Without a glass between

O that the happy hour come
To change my faith to sight
Change my faith to sight
I shall behold my Lord at home
In a diviner light,
A diviner light

Haste my Beloved and remove
These interposing days
Interposing days
Then shall my passions all be love,
And all my pow’rs be praise
All my pow’rs be praise

I love the windows of Thy grace
Through which my Lord is seen,
Which my Lord is seen
