Prelude

Call to Worship: Psalm 66:1-4

Minister: Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty!

People: For you alone are holy. All nations will come, and worship you.
Minister: For your righteous acts have been revealed.

Hymnal #521 "My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less"

My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly lean on Jesus' name.

Refrain:
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
all other ground is sinking sand;
all other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
in every high and stormy gale
my anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]

His oath, his covenant, his blood
support me in the whelming flood;
when all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]

When he shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in him be found;
dressed in his righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before the throne. [Refrain]

Prayer of Adoration and Invocation

Hymnal #230 "Thou Who Wast Rich beyond All Splendor"

Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour
All for love's sake becamest poor
Thrones for a manger didst surrender
Sapphire-paved courts for stable floor
Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour
All for love's sake becamest poor

Thou who art God beyond all praising
All for love's sake becamest man
Stooping so low but sinners raising
Heavenward by Thine eternal plan
Thou who art God beyond all praising
All for love's sake becamest man

Thou who art love beyond all telling
Saviour and King we worship Thee
Emmanuel within us dwelling
Make us what Thou wouldst have us be
Thou who art love beyond all telling
Saviour and King we worship Thee

Westminster Shorter Catechism Q. 27-28

Q. 27. Wherein did Christ's humiliation consist?

A. Christ's humiliation consisted in his being born, and that in a low condition, made under the law, undergoing the miseries of this life, the wrath of God, and the cursed death of the cross; in being buried, and continuing under the power of death for a time.

Q. 28. Wherein does Christ's exaltation consist?

A. Christ's exaltation consists in his rising again from the dead on the third day, in ascending up into heaven, in sitting at the right hand of God the Father, and in coming to judge the world at the last day.
