Responsive Scripture

Psalm 149 (Refrain 1)

Refrain:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Sing to God a new song; give praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its Maker; let the children of Zion exult in their Sovereign!
Let them praise God's name with dancing; let them sing God's praise with tambourine and harp!

Refrain:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

For you, O God, take delight in your people; you crown the humble with victory.
Let the faithful exult in their glory; let them sing for joy as they feast.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Let God's praise be on their lips, the two-edged sword in their hands,
to bring the nations to justice, and call to account the peoples,
to bind their rulers with fetters, their great ones with bonds of iron,
to execute on them the sentence decreed.
This is the glory of all God's saints!

Refrain:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Music Offering

Introit: There is Room for All
Performed by Stephen Cocks

There is room for all in the shadow of God’s wing;
there is room for all, sheltered in God’s love.
And I rejoice and sing, “My refuge and my rock, in whom I trust.”
There is room for all, there is room for all!
(Repeat)

Hymn: All Who Hunger
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1. 
All who hunger, gather gladly;
holy manna is our bread.
Come from wilderness and wandering.
Here, in truth, we will be fed.
You that yearn for days of fullness,
all around us is our food.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

2. 
All who hunger, never strangers;
seeker, be a welcome guest.
Come from restlessness and roaming.
Here, in joy, we keep the feast.
We that once were lost and scattered
in communion's love have stood.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

3. 
All who hunger, sing together;
Jesus Christ is living bread.
Come from loneliness and longing.
Here, in peace, we have been led.
Blest are those who from this table
live their lives in gratitude.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

Music Ministry: The Porter’s Gate: Nothing to Fear (feat. Audrey Assad)

Hymn: Deep in Our Hearts
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1.
Deep in our hearts there is a common vision;  
deep in our hearts there is a common song;  
deep in our hearts there is a common story,  
telling Creation that we are one.

2.
Deep in our hearts there is a common purpose;  
deep in our hearts there is a common goal;  
deep in our hearts there is a sacred message,
justice and peace in harmony.

3.
Deep in our hearts there is a common longing;  
deep in our hearts there is a common theme;  
deep in our hearts there is a common current,  
flowing to freedom like a stream.

4.
Deep in our hearts there is a common vision;  
deep in our hearts there is a common song;  
deep in our hearts there is a common story,  
telling Creation that we are one.

Hymn: Grant Us, God, the Grace
Performed by Stephen Cocks

Grant us, God, the grace of giving,
with a spirit large and free,
that ourselves and all our living
we may offer faithfully.

Hymn: Praise the Lord with the Sound of Trumpet
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1. 
Praise the Lord with the sound of trumpet,  
praise the Lord with the harp and lute,  
praise the Lord with the gentle-sounding flute.

Praise the Lord in the field and forest,  
praise the Lord in the city square,  
praise the Lord anytime and anywhere.

Praise the Lord in the wind and sunshine,  
praise the Lord in the dark of night,  
praise the Lord in the rain or snow or in the morning light.

Praise the Lord in the deepest valley,  
praise the Lord on the highest hill,  
praise the Lord, never let your voice be still.

2. 
Praise the Lord with the crashing cymbal,  
praise the Lord with the pipe and string,  
praise the Lord with the joyful songs you sing.

Praise the Lord on a weekday morning,  
praise the Lord on a Sunday noon,  
praise the Lord by the light of sun or moon.

Praise the Lord in the time of sorrow,  
praise the Lord in the time of joy,  
praise the Lord every moment, nothing let your praise destroy.

Praise the Lord in the peace and quiet,  
praise the Lord in your work or play,  
praise the Lord everywhere in every way!

Benediction: Dance with the Spirit
