To you all flesh shall come.3 When deeds of iniquity overwhelm us,you forgive our transgressions. 4 Happy are those whom you choose and bring nearto live in your courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, your holy temple. 5 By awesome deeds you answer us with deliverance,O God of our salvation; you are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. 6 By your strength you established the mountains;you are girded with might. 7 You silence the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples. 8 Those who live at earth’s farthest bounds are awed by your signs; you make the gateways of the morning and the evening shout for joy.1 Praise is due to you,O God, in Zion; and to you shall vows be performed, 2 O you who answer prayer! To you all flesh shall come. Psalm 65:1-8HYMNS AND PRAISE SONGS“Crown Him with Many Crowns”Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne;Hark! how the heav’nly anthem drowns all music but its own:Awake my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee,And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.Crown Him the Lord of love; behold His hands and side,Rich wounds, yet visible above in beauty glorified:No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight,But downwards bends His burning eye at mysteries so bright.Crown Him the Lord of peace; Whose pow’r a scepter swaysFrom pole to pole, that wars may cease, Absorbed in prayer and praiseHis reign shall know no end; and round His pierced feetFair flow’rs of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet.Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time;Creator of the rolling speheres, ineffably sublime.All hail, Redeemer hail! For thou hast died for me.Thy praise shall never, never fail throughout eternity.Thy praise shall never, never fail throughout eternity.“Shout to the Lord”My Jesus, my Saviour, Lord, there is none like You;All of my days I want to praise the wonders of Your mighty love.My comfort, my shelter, tower of refuge and strength;Let ev’ry breath, all that I am, never cease to worship You.Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing.Power and majesty, praise to the King.Mountains bow down and the seas will roarAt the sound of Your name.I sing for joy at the work of your hands,Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand,Nothing compares to the promise I have in You. (Repeat All)Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.“The Heart of Worship”King of endless worth. No one could express how much You deserve.Though I’m weak and poor, all I have is Yours,Every single breath.I’ll bring You more than a song, for a song in itselfIs not what You have required.You search much deeper within, through the way things appear,You’re looking into my heart. Chorus: I’m coming back to the heart of worship, and it’s all about You.All about You Jesus.I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made itWhen it’s all about You, it’s all about You Jesus.RECEPTION OF NEW MEMBERS P 173 MBWToday we joyfully receive Jason Clore and Ryan Hayesinto the membership of our church and into the Christian fellowship of our congregation.

Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. 10 But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells in you.
