PRELUDE

PSALM 130

INVOCATION 


ALL PEOPLE THAT ON EARTH DO DWELL 
All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice
Him serve with fear;
His praise forth tell
Come ye before Him and rejoice
Because the Lord, our God, is good
His mercy is forever sure!
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And does from age to age endure!
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow!
Praise Him, all creatures here below!
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host!
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
Amen.

SCRIPTURE READING: EZEKIEL 37:1-14 

GREAT ARE YOU LORD 
You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are You, Lord
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only
And all the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
Great are You, Lord

GOSPEL READING: JOHN 11:1-7, 17-45 

PASTORAL PRAYER

MESSAGE: SO GOD DOES COME TO US.


CHRIST BE ALL AROUND ME
As I rise, strength of God, go before, lift me up.
As I wake, eyes of God, look upon, be my sight.
As I wait, heart of God, satisfy and sustain
As I hear, voice of God, lead me on, and be my guide.
Be my guide.
Above and below me, before and behind me,
In every eye that sees me, Christ be all around me.
As I go, hand of God, my defense, by my side,
As I rest, breath of God, fall upon, bring me peace,
Bring me peace.
Above and below me, before and behind me,
In every eye that sees me, Christ be all around me.
Your life, Your death, Your blood was shed,
For every moment, every moment.
Above and below me, before and behind me,
In every eye that sees me, Christ be all around me.
