CALL TO WORSHIP

INTROIT: Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!  by Benjamin Hamson

Alleluia! Sing to Jesus! His the scepter, his the throne; Alleluia!  His the triumph, His the victory alone; Hark!  The songs of peaceful Sion thunder like a mighty flood; Jesus out of every nation hath redeemed us by his blood.  Alleluia!  Bread of Heaven, Thou on earth our food, our stay!  Alleluia!  Here the sinful flee to thee from day to day: Intercessor, friend of sinners, earth’s redeemer, plead for me, where the songs of all the sinless sweep across the crystal sea. Alleluia!  Not as orphans are we left in sorrow now; Alleluia!  He is near us, faith believes, nor questions how; though the cloud from sight received him, when the forty days were over, shall our hearts forget his promise, “I am with you evermore!”

ANTHEM: Jesus is my Joy, My All  by J.S. Bach

Jesus is my joy, my All, He for me His life hath given; I am His, I hear His call; He hath writ my name in heaven.  Earthly treasures pass away; Jesus I will love for aye, in my Jesus I am blest, He to pleasant pastures leads me, stills my soul and gives it rest, and with heavenly manna feeds me.  Earthly things must fade and fall; Jesus is my Life, my All.  [Ernest Edwin Ryden]

BENEDICTION RESPONSE: I Want Jesus to Walk with Me  by David M. Cherwien

I want Jesus to walk with me; all along my pilgrim journey, Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me.  In my trials, Lord, walk with me; when my heart is almost breaking, Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me.  When I’m in trouble, Lord, walk with me!  When my head is bowed in sorrow, I want Jesus yes Jesus, to walk with me.  [African American Spiritual]
