God is Living, God is Here
Words: Laurence H. Davies
Music: J. S. Bach (1685-1750)

Wherefore despair? God the Lord is everywhere.
God is good and with compassion gives to all on earth his aid;
his strong arm, in powerful fashion, all good things for us hath made.
In his mystic ways progressing turns he every want to blessing.
So my soul, now do not fear; God is living, God is here.

* CALL TO WORSHIP from Isaiah 12
Rob Bradley, Elder

Leader: Alleluia! Christ is risen.

People: He is risen indeed. Alleluia!

Leader: I will praise you, O LORD. Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.

People: The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.

Leader: Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.

People: Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.

* HYMN Jesus Lives!

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.

Children of the Heavenly Father
Words: Carolina V. Sandell Berg (1832-1903)
Music: Swedish folk, arr. Paul Sjolund

Children of the heavenly Father
safely in his bosom gather;
nestling bird nor star in heaven
such a refuge e’er was given.

God his own doth tend and nourish,
in his holy courts they flourish;
from all evil things he spares them,
in his mighty arms he bears them.

Praise the Lord in joyful numbers,
your Protector never slumbers
at the will of your Defender
every foe-man must surrender.

Though he giveth or he taketh,
God his children ne’er forsaketh;
his the loving purpose solely
to preserve them pure and holy.

* HYMN No. 281 I Know That My Redeemer Lives
