Opening Prayer

Hymn – All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name!

All hail the power of Jesus’ Name! Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race, ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace, and crown Him Lord of all.
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace, and crown Him Lord of all.

Let every kindred, every tribe on this terrestrial ball,
to Him all majesty ascribe, and crown Him Lord of all.
To Him all majesty ascribe, and crown Him Lord of all.

O that, with yonder sacred throng, we at His feet may fall,
Join in the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all,
Join in the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all!

Hymn – How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation ye saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word
What more can He say than to you He hath said
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled

“Fear not I am with thee O be not dismayed
For I am thy God I will still give thee aid
I’ll strengthen thee help thee and cause thee
To stand upheld by My gracious omnipotent hand

When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie
My grace all-sufficient shall be thy supply
The flames shall not hurt thee I only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine

The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
I will not I will not desert to its foes
That soul tho’ all hell should endeavor to shake
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake”

Prayer

Hymn – High Beyond Imagination

High beyond imagination
Is the love of God to man.
Far too deep for human reason
Fathom that it never can.
Love eternal,
Richly dwells in Christ the lamb.

Love like Jesus’ none can measure,
Nor can its dimensions know;
‘Tis a boundless, endless river,
And its waters freely flow.
O ye thirsty,
Come and taste its streams below.

Jesus loved, and loves forever;
Zion on His heart does dwell;
He will never, never, never
Leave His church a prey to hell.
All is settled
And my soul approves it well!

Hymn – The Strife is Over

The strife is o’er, the battle done;
the victory of life is won;
the song of triumph has begun.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

The powers of death have done their worst,
but Christ their legions hath dispersed.
Let shouts of holy joy outburst
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

The three sad days are quickly sped;
He rises glorious from the dead.
All glory to our risen Head.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

He closed the yawning gates of hell;
the bars from heaven’s high portals fell.
Let songs of praise His triumph tell.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Lord, by the stripes which wounded Thee,
from death’s dread sting Your servants free,
that we may live and sing to Thee.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
