O Taste and See

* CALL TO WORSHIP from Psalm 119
led by David Rix, Elder

Leader: O Lord, your word endures for ever; it stands fast in the heavens.
People: Your faithfulness remains from one generation to another;
you have laid the foundation of the earth, and it abides.

Leader: I am yours; O save me! For I have sought your commandments.
People: My lips shall pour forth your praise.
Leader: Surely my tongue shall sing of your word.

* HYMN No. 76 Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven

Our Father who art in heaven; Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our coming day’s bread;
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors;
And lead us not into trial, but deliver us from the Evil One.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Let Me Hide Myself in Thee
Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1740–1778)
Music: Craig Courtney (b.1948)
Park Street Chamber Choir

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Save from wrath, and make me pure.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to the cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior, or I die.

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyes shall close in death,
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne.
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.

Psalm 34

Leader: The Word of the Lord
People: Thanks be to God

The Lord is the Everlasting God
Words: Isaiah 40:21–22,25–26,28–31
Music: Kenneth Jennings (1925–2015)
Park Street Chamber Choir

The Lord is the everlasting God,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Who does not faint or grow weary;
Whose understanding is unsearchable.

God gives power to the faint,
And strengthens the powerless.
Even youths will faint and be weary,
And the young will fall exhausted;

But those who wait for the Lord
Shall renew their strength,
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

Have you not heard?
Have you not known?
