Worship part 1


WE STAND AND LIFT UP OUR HANDS, For the joy of the Lord is our strength. We bow down and worship Him now; How great, how awesome is He.

And together we sing, Everyone sing:

Holy is the Lord God Almighty; The earth is filled with His glory. Holy is the Lord God Almighty; The earth is filled with His glory,

The earth is filled with His glory.

It’s rising up all around, It’s the anthem of the Lord’s renown.

Water You turned into wine, Opened the eyes of the blind

There's no one like You, None like You.

Into the darkness You shine. Out of the ashes we rise

There's no one like You None like You Our God is greater Our God is stronger, God You are higher than any other

Our God is healer Awesome in power, Our God, Our God. And if our God is for us, Then who could ever stop us

And if our God is with us, Then what could stand against?

And if our God is for us, Then who could ever stop us

And if our God is with us, Then what could stand against?

We bow our hearts, we lift our hands, we turn our eyes to you again

And we surrender to the truth, that all we need is found in You.

Receive our adoration , Jesus Lamb of God, Receive our adoration,

How wonderful you are. We choose to leave it all behind, And turn our eyes towards the prize

The upward call of God in Christ, You have our hearts, Lord take our lives

Receive our adoration, Jesus Lamb of God, Receive our adoration

How wonderful you are

Every soul You've saved sings out, everything you've made resounds

all creation's standing now, lifting up your name

We're caught up in the angel's song, We're gathered to your ancient throne

Children in our Father's arms, Shouting out your praise.


Sermon





Worship part 2

TO BE IN YOUR PRESENCE, To sit at Your feet,

Where Your love surrounds me, And makes me complete.

This is my desire, O Lord, This is my desire. This is my desire, O Lord, This is my desire.

To rest in Your presence, Not rushing away; To cherish each moment, Here I would stay.

Your grace is enough, more than I need, At Your word I will believe I wait for You, draw near again, Let Your Spirit make me new.

And I will fall at Your feet, I will fall at Your feet, And I will worship You here.

Your presence in me, Jesus light the way, By the power of Your word I am restored, I am redeemed, By Your Spirit I am free.

And I will fall at Your feet. I will fall at Your feet. And I will worship You here, oh Lord Freely You gave it all for us, Surrendered Your life upon that cross Great is the love poured out for all, This is our God Lifted on high from death to life, Forever our God is glorified Servant and King rescued the world, This is our God And I will fall at Your feet, We sing I will fall at Your feet

And I will worship You here, And I will fall at Your feet

I will fall at Your feet, And I will worship You here


May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us now and evermore. May God bless you all richly this week. Amen.

2. What motivated Mary to do what she did?

3. Why is the phrase 'the feet' significant?

4. Although not explored in the sermon, what did Jesus mean by 'For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me'. Is he saying that the poor don't matter?
