HYMN: Come, Christians, Join to Sing [Madrid]
INTROIT: Praise His Holy Name by Keith Hampton
Sing till the power of the Lord come down. Shout Hallelujah! Praise His Holy name! Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me; I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see. Jesus, Jesus, How I love Thee! Shout Hallelujah! Praise his holy name! Must Jesus bear the cross alone and all the world go free? No, there’s a cross for everyone and there’s a cross for me. Holy Jesus, praise his name, Oh! Hallelujah, praise his holy name! Hallelujah, let us praise his name, Hallelujah, Lord! Hallelujah! Praise his name! Praise his holy name! Praise him!
