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

Call to worship:   Psalm 118

Leader:  Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Let Israel say:     “His love endures forever.”

Let the house of Aaron say:  “His love endures forever.”

Let those who fear the Lord say:      “His love endures forever.”


People:   When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord;     he brought me into a spacious place.

The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.      What can mere mortals do to me?

The Lord is with me; he is my helper.      I look in triumph on my enemies.


Leader:   It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.

The Lord is my strength and my defense he has become my salvation.


People:   Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous:

“The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!

The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty                    things!”


Leader:    Open for me the gates of the righteous; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.

This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter.

I will give you thanks, for you answered me;  you have become my salvation.


People:    The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;

the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.

The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad.


Leader:    Lord, save us!  Lord, grant us success!

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

From the house of the Lord we bless you.


People:    The Lord is God, and he has made his light shine on us.

With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar.


Leader:    You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you.


ALL:           Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.


Songs of Praise:

All Glory, Laud and Honor (Teodulph of Orleans, ca. 820; tune M. Teschner, ca.1615)

All glory, laud and honor to thee, Redeemer King,

To whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring!

Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son,

Who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and blessed one.


The people of the Hebrews with palms before thee went;

Our praise and prayer and anthems before thee we present:

To thee, before thy passion, they sang their hymns of praise;

To thee, now high exalted, our melody we raise.


Thou didst accept their praises; accept the prayers we bring,

Who in all good delightest, thou good and gracious King!

All glory, laud, and honor to thee, Redeemer King,

To whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring!


Hosanna (Brooke Ligertwood  CCLI #4785835)

I see the King of Glory coming on the clouds with fire;

The whole earth shakes, the whole earth shakes.

I see His love and mercy washing over all our sin;

the people sing, the people sing:



Hosanna, Hosanna,Hosanna in the highest!

Hosanna, Hosanna,Hosanna in the highest!


I see a generation rising up to take their place

With selfless faith, selfless faith.

I see a near revival stirring as we pray and seek;

We’re on our knees, we’re on our knees: (Chorus)


Heal my heart and make it clean;

Open up my eyes to the things unseen.

Show me how to love like You

have loved me


Break my heart for what breaks yours,

Everything I am for Your kingdom’s cause,

As I go from earth into

Eternity. (Chorus 2X)


Hosanna in the highest, Hosanna in the highest!


Amazing Love (You Are My King) (Billy James Foote, 1999  CCLI #2456623)

I’m forgiven because You were forsaken

I’m accepted, You were condemned

I’m alive and well, Your Spirit is within me

Because You died and rose again

(Repeat, first time only)


Amazing love, how can it be,

That You my King would die for me?

Amazing love, I know it’s true—

It’s my joy to honor You;

In all I do, I honor You.

(Repeat all)


You—are my King

Jesus, You—are my King

Jesus, You—are my King

Jesus, You—are my King


Amazing love, how can it be,

That You my King would die for me?

Amazing love, I know it’s true—

It’s my joy to honor You;

In all I do, I honor You,

In all I do, I honor You,

In all I do, I honor You.




Respond in Praise:


Nothing But the Blood of Jesus (Robert Lowry, 1876)

What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


Chorus: O precious is the flow that makes me white as snow;

No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.


Nothing can for sin atone—nothing but the blood of Jesus;

naught of good that I have done—nothing but the blood of Jesus. (Chorus)


This is all my hope and peace—nothing but the blood of Jesus;

this is all my righteousness—nothing but the blood of Jesus. (Chorus 2X)


Scripture Reading:    Luke 19:28-44


The Triumphal Entry

28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”


Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem

41 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”


This is the Word of the Lord.   Thanks be to God!”

Sermon:  “Hosannah Blessed is He!


Hymn of Dedication:

Above All (Lenny LeBlanc, Paul Baloche  CCLI #2672885)

Above all powers, above all kings,

above all nature and all created things;

Above all wisdom and all the ways of man,

You were here before the world began.


Above all kingdoms, above all thrones,

above all wonders the world has ever known;

above all wealth and treasures of the earth,

there’s no way to measure what you’re worth.


Chorus: Crucified, laid behind a stone,

You lived to die, rejected and alone.

Like a rose, trampled on the ground,

You took the fall, and thought of me, above all.

(Repeat all, then 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:                                                                                                                       

The Power of the Cross (Keith Getty, Stuart Townend 2005  CCLI #4490766)

1.Oh, to see the dawn of the darkest day,

Christ on the road to Calvary.

Tried by sinful men, torn and beaten, then

nailed to a cross of wood.


Chorus: This the pow’r of the cross:

Christ became sin for us,

took the blame, bore the wrath—

We stand forgiven at the cross.


2.Oh, to see the pain written on Your face,

bearing the awesome weight of sin.

Every bitter thought , every evil deed

crowning Your blood-stained brow. (Chorus)


3.Now the daylight flees; now the ground beneath

quakes as its Maker bows His head.

Curtain torn in two, dead are raised to life—

“Finished!” the victory cry.


Chorus: This the pow’r of the cross,

Son of God, slain for us.

What a love, what a cost!

We stand forgiven at the cross.
