  1. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 9/6

    Our Great God

    Eternal God, unchanging, mysterious and unknown

    Your boundless love unfailing in grace and mercy shown

    Bright seraphim in ceaseless flight around Your glorious throne

    They raise their voices day and night in praise to You alone

    Hallelujah!  Glory be to our great God!  Hallelujah!  Glory be to our great God!

    Lord, we are weak and frail, helpless in the storm

    Surround us with Your angels. Hold us in Your arms

    Our cold and ruthless enemy, his pleasure is our harm

    Rise up, O Lord and He will flee before our Sovereign God

    For this the Father sent His Son. For this our Savior came

    To put an end to Satan’s works, God’s Kingdom here to bring

    He bore our sins upon the cross.  He died, and rose to save

    We have no fear of death or hell, Christ triumphed o’er the grave!

    Let every creature in the sea and every flying bird

    Let every mountain, every field and valley of the earth

    Let all the moons and all the stars in all the universe

    Sing praises to the living God Who rules them by His Word

    More Love, More Power

    More love, more power; More of You in my life (2X)
    And I will worship You, with all of my heart; I will worship You, with all of my mind
    I will worship You, with all of my strength; For You are my Lord (2X)

    Lord, Take Our Children

    Lord, take our children; Lord, give them freedom; Lord, send Your Spirit upon them (2X)

    Like arrows from a mighty warrior; Like arrows flaming in the darkness

    Send Your Light…into the night; May Jesus Christ be glorified

    In our children,  through our children

    Men Of Faith Rise Up And Sing

    Men of faith rise up and sing; Of the great and glorious King

    You are strong when you feel weak; In your brokenness complete

    Shout to the North and the South; Sing to the East and the West;

    Jesus is Savior to all; Lord of heaven and earth

    Rise up women of the truth; Stand and sing to broken hearts
    Who can know the healing power; Of our awesome King of love

    We will shout to the North and the South; Sing to the East and the West
    Jesus is Savior to all; Lord of heaven and earth

    We’ve been through fire, we’ve been through rain; We’ve been refined by the power of His name
    We’ve fallen deeper in love with You; You’ve burned the truth on our lips

    Rise up church with broken wings; Fill this place with songs again
    Of our God who reigns on high; By His grace again we’ll fly

    His Mercy is More

    What love could remember no wrongs we have done

    Omniscient, all knowing, He counts not their sum
    Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore; Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

    Praise the Lord, His mercy is more; Stronger than darkness, new every morn
    Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

    What patience would wait as we constantly roam; What Father, so tender, is calling us home
    He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor; Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

    What riches of kindness He lavished on us; His blood was the payment, His life was the cost
    We stood ‘neath a debt we could never afford; Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

    How Great Thou Art

    O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder

    Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
    I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder

    Thy power throughout the universe displayed

    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

    And when I think of 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

    When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation; And lead me home, what joy shall fill my heart
    Then I shall bow with humble adoration; And then proclaim, my God, how great Thou art

  2. Teach Sound Doctrine. There is One Source of Life. It’s Christ.  Christ is life for a broken world. Titus 3 – Summation of Titus

    Christ is life for a broken world. (ESV)

    Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.

    Elders must care for and make sure the church stays unified and protected from the accusers and teachers of false doctrine.

    Titus 1:5 Qualifications for Elders – This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I.

    Titus 3:1-3 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another.

  3. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 8/30

    One Thing

    One thing, one thing I desire; To dwell and to inquire; In Your holy place

    One thing, this one thing I seek; A time and place to meet; And see you face to face

    One__ thing__ I desire; To dwell in the house of the Lord; All the days of my life

    To behold Your beauty, Lord; To know and love You more and more

    It’s what I’ve been created for; This one thing

    To lean upon the One I love; Safely resting in Your arms; Set Your seal upon my heart

    I desire; this one thing

    Better Is One Day

    How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty

    My soul longs and even faints for you

    For here my heart is satisfied; Within Your presence

    I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings

    Better is one day in Your courts; Better is one day in Your house

    Better is one day in Your courts; Than thousands elsewhere (2X)

    One thing I ask and I would seek; To see Your beauty

    To find You in the place Your glory dwells

    My heart and flesh cry out; For You, the living God; Your Spirit’s water for my soul

    I’ve tasted and I’ve seen; Come once again to me; I will draw near to you, To you…

    O Come to the Altar

    Are you hurting and broken within; Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin,

    Jesus is calling

    Have you come to the end of yourself; Do you thirst for a drink from the well,

    Jesus is calling

    O come to the altar; The Father’s arms are open wide

    Forgiveness was bought with; The precious blood of Jesus Christ

    Leave behind your regrets and mistakes; Come today, there’s no reason to wait,

    Jesus is calling

    Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy; From the ashes a new life is born,

    Jesus is calling

    Oh what a Savior!  Isn’t He wonderful!     Sing alleluia, Christ is risen.

    Bow down before Him, For He is Lord of all; Sing alleluia, Christ is risen

    Kadosh

    Kadosh kadosh kadosh;Kadosh kadosh kadosh
    Adonai Elohim tz’va’ot; Adonai Elohim tz’va’ot

    Holy holy holy;Holy holy holy
    O Lord our God Lord of hosts; O Lord our God Lord of hosts

    Who was and Who is; And Who is to come
    Who was and Who is; And Who is to come

    Asher hayah; V’hoveh v’yavo; Asher hayah; V’hoveh v’yavo

    Who was and Who is; And Who is to come
    Who was and Who is; And Who is to come

    Gracious Lord

    Your Grace has been my strength; when I am weakest

    And when I’m wounded, Lord, Your grace heals all my brokenness

    When I’ve fallen down, I feel Your gentle, loving hand

    And I know it’s Your grace by which I stand

    Gracious Lord, God of all compassion;

    You have poured your kindness over me

    O my Lord, Jesus by Your mercy;

    I bow down and worship at Your feet;

    Gracious Lord

    The Beauty of Your presence overwhelms me

    You are clothed in power and reign in perfect purity

    All that I possess as an offering I raise

    To the Lamb and the praise of His glorious grace

  5. Heirs of the Hope of Eternal Life – An Unclouded Fellowship with God. Titus 3:1-8

    Sunday August 23, 2020. Heirs of the Hope of Eternal Life – An Unclouded Fellowship with God.  and Fundamentals of Salvation

    Titus 3:1-8. Godly Living and Graces of the Heirs of Grace

    Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people.

    Goal of Salvation:  Eternal Life

    Need of God’s Salvation: We were once foolish and slaves

    Source of Salvation:  Goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appear (Love of God)

    Evidence of Salvation:  Diligence in performing good works

  6. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 8/23

    Grace Like Rain

    Amazing grace, how sweet the sound; That saved a wretch like me
    And I once was lost but now I’m found; Was blind but now I see so clearly

    And Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
    And Hallelujah, and all my stains are washed away; They’re washed away

    ‘Twas grace that taught; My heart to fear; And grace my fears relieved
    How precious did that grace appear; The hour I first believed

    When we’ve been there ten thousand years; Bright shining as the sun
    We’ve no less days to sing Your praise; Than when we first begun

    King of Kings

    In the darkness, we were waiting; Without hope, without light
    ‘Til from Heaven You came running; There was mercy in Your eyes
    To fulfill the law and prophets; To a virgin came the Word
    From a throne of endless glory; To a cradle in the dirt

    Praise the Father, praise the Son; Praise the Spirit, three in one
    God of glory, Majesty; Praise forever to the King of Kings

    To reveal the kingdom coming; And to reconcile the lost
    To redeem the whole creation; You did not despise the cross
    For even in Your suffering; You saw to the other side
    Knowing this was our salvation; Jesus for our sake You died

    And the morning that You rose; All of Heaven held its breath
    ‘Til that stone was moved for good; For the Lamb had conquered death
    And the dead rose from their tombs; And the angels stood in awe
    For the souls of all who’d come; To the Father are restored

    And the church of Christ was born; Then the Spirit lit the flame
    Now this gospel truth of old; Shall not kneel, shall not faint
    By His blood and in His name; In His freedom I am free
    For the love of Jesus Christ; Who has resurrected me, ohh

    Christ Is Risen

    Let no one caught in sin remain; Inside the lie of inward shame
    We fix our eyes upon the cross; And run to Him who showed great love

    And bled for us; Freely You have bled for us

    Christ is risen from the dead; Trampling over death by death
    Come awake, come awake; Come and rise up from the grave

    Christ is risen from the dead; We are one with Him again
    Come awake, come awake; Come and rise up from the grave

    Beneath the weight of all our sin; You bowed to none but Heaven’s will
    No scheme of Hell, no scoffer’s crown; No burden great can hold You down

    In strength You reign; Forever let Your church proclaim

    O death, where is your sting?; O hell, where is your victory?
    O church, come stand in the light; The glory of God has defeated the night

    You Are My All In All

    You are my strength when I am weak; You are the treasure that I seek
    You are my all in all
    Seeking You as a precious jewel; Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
    You are my all in all

    Taking my sin, my cross, my shame; Rising again I bless Your name
    You are my all in all
    When I fall down You pick me up; When I am dry You fill my cup
    You are my all in all

    Jesus, Lamb of God; Worthy is Your name; Jesus, Lamb of God; Worthy is Your name

    The Stand

    You stood before creation; Eternity within Your hands

    And you spoke all life into motion; My soul now to stand

    You stood before my failure; And carried the cross for my shame
    My sin weighed upon Your shoulders; My soul now to stand

    So what can I say; And what could I do; But offer this heart O God; Completely to You

    So I’ll walk upon salvation; Your Spirit alive in me

    This life to declare Your promise; My soul now to stand

    So what can I say; What could I do; But offer this heart O God; Completely to You

    So I’ll stand; With arms high and heart abandoned; In awe of the One who gave it all
    So I’ll stand; My soul Lord to You surrendered; All I am is Yours
