Psalm 66:1-2 CALL TO WORSHIP                   “Spirit Song”                              Martin MORNING PRAYER HYMNS AND PRAISE SONGS “He is Exalted” He is exalted, the King is exalted on high; I will praise Him. He is exalted, forever exalted, and I will praise His name. He is the Lord; forever His truth shall reign. Heaven and earth rejoice in His holy name. He is exalted, the King is exalted on high.  (Repeat) “Resurrecting” The head that once was crowned with thorns Is crowned with glory now The Savior knelt to wash our feet Now at his feet we bow The one who wore our sin and shame Now robed in majesty The radiance of perfect love Now shines for all to see Chorus:     Your name Your name Is victory All praise Will rise To Christ our king Your name Your name Is victory All praise Will rise To Christ our king The fear that held us now gives way To him who is our peace His final breath upon the cross Is now alive in me. (Chorus) By Your Spirit I will rise from the ashes of defeat. The resurrected King is resurrecting me. In Your name, I come alive to declare Your victory. The Resurrected King is resurrecting me. The tomb where soldiers watched in vain was borrowed for three days. His body there would not remain, Our God has robbed the grave. Our God has robbed the grave. (Chorus) (Please be seated) “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”  (MBW350) When I survey the wondrous cross On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride. Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were an off’ring far too small; Love so amazing, so divine demands my soul, my life, my all.
