PROVIDENCE CHURCH
September 6, 2020

Welcome

Passing of the Peace: Though we are separated by distance our hearts are one in Christ. The peace of Christ be with you!

Call to worship: Psalm 37
Leader: Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
People: Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Leader: Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.
People: Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
ALL: The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.

Songs of Praise
Worthy of Worship
(Terry York, 1988; tune Mark Blankenship, 1988)
Worthy of worship, worthy of praise, worthy of honor and glory;
Worthy of all the glad songs we can sing, worthy of all of the off’rings we bring,

Chorus:
You are worthy, Father, Creator,
You are worthy, Savior, Sustainer,
You are worthy, worthy and wonderful, worthy of worship and praise.

Worthy of rev’rence, worthy of fear, worthy of love and devotion;
Worthy of bowing and bending of knees, worthy of all this and added to these…
(Chorus)

Almighty Father, Master and Lord, King of all kings and Redeemer,
Wonderful Counselor, Comforter, Friends, Savior and Source of our life without end,
(Chorus)

I’ll Fly Away (Albert Brumley, 1932)
Some glad morning when this life is o’er, I’ll fly away,
To a home on God’s celestial shore, I’ll fly away.

Chorus:
I’ll fly away, O glory, I’ll fly away;
When I die, hallelujah, by and by, I’ll fly away.

When the shadows of this life have gone, I’ll fly away,
Like a bird from prison bars has flown, I’ll fly away.
(Chorus)

Just a few more weary days and then, I’ll fly away,
To a land where joys shall never end, I’ll fly away.
(Chorus X2)

Jesus is coming back again                            (Jesus is coming back again)

Jesus is coming, sing, Jesus is coming         (Hal-le-lu-jah!)

Confession/Assurance

Respond in Praise:

Jesus Paid It All (Elvina Hall, 1865; tune John Grape, 1868; Bridge, Kristian Stanfill)
I hear the Savior say, “Your strength indeed is small.
Child of weakness, watch and pray; find in Me your all in all.”
Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain—he washed it white as snow.

Lord now indeed I find your power and yours alone
Can change a leper’s spots, and melt the heart of stone.
Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain—he washed it white as snow.

For nothing good have I whereby your grace to claim—
I’ll wash my garments white in the blood of Calvary’s Lamb.
Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain—he washed it white as snow.

Oh praise the One who paid my debt, and raised this life up from the dead! (4X)

And when, before the Throne, I stand in him complete,
“Jesus died, my soul to save!” my lips shall still repeat.
Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain—he washed it white as snow, he washed it white as snow, He washed it white as snow!

Oh praise the One who paid my debt, and raised this life up from the dead! (4X)

Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain—he washed it white as snow.

Hymn of Dedication:
Change My Heart, O God
(Eddie Espanosa, 1982)
Change my heart, O God, make it ever true;
Change my heart, O God, may I be like You. (Repeat)

Chorus:
You are the Potter, I am the clay;
Mold me and make me—this is what I pray:

Change my heart, O God, make it ever true;
Change my heart, O God, may I be like You.
(Repeat Chorus)

Lord’s Prayer:
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 daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil:
for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. Amen

Hymn of Thanksgiving:
How Great Thou Art
(Stuart Hine, 1949; Swedish folk tune)
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
consider all the worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I heart the rolling thunder,
thy pow’r throughout the Universe displayed.

Chorus:
Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to thee: How great thou art, how great thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to thee: How great thou art, how great thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander,
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze; (Chorus)

And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
sent him to die, I scarce can take it in,
that on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
he bled and died to take away my sin; (Chorus)

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, My God, how great thou art! (Chorus)
