SERVICE OF WORD AND TABLE
Tuesday, February 8, 2011 Season After Epiphany
Gathering for Praise
Song O Worship the King Chris Tomlin Johann Michael Haydn & Robert Grant
O worship the King, all glorious above
O gratefully sing the wonderful love
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days
Pavilioned in splendor, and girded with praise
O tell of the might, O sing of the grace
Whose robe is the light and canopy space
The chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form
And dark is your path on the wings of the storm
You alone are the matchless King
To You alone be all majesty
Your glories and wonders, what tongue can recite?
You breathe in the air, You shine in the light
O measureless might, ineffable love
While angels delight to worship above
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend (return to chorus)
Collect for Purity
Almighty God, to You all hearts are open, all desires known, and from You no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love You, and worthily magnify Your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Song From the Inside Out Joel Houston
