"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" 
John 3:16

Call to Worship:

P: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of all mercy and the God of all consolation. He comforts us in all our sorrows so that we can comfort others in their sorrows with the consolation we ourselves have received from God.

C: Thanks be to God

P: When we were baptized in Christ Jesus, we were baptized into his death. We were buried therefore by Baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.

A Mighty Fortress is Our God
A mighty fortress is our God, a sword and shield victorious;
He breaks the cruel oppressor's rod and wins salvation glorious.
The old satanic foe has sworn to work us woe!
With craft and dreadful might he arms himself to fight
On earth he has no equal.

No strength of ours can match his might!
We would be lost, rejected. But now a champion comes to fight,
whom God himself elected. You ask who this may be?
The Lord of hosts is he! Christ Jesus, mighty Lord,
God's only Son, adored. He holds the field victorious.

Though hordes of devils fill the land all threat'ning
to devour us. Let his world's tyrant rage;
in battle we'll engage! His might is doomed to fail.
God's judgment must prevail! One little word subdues him.

God's Word forever shall abide, no thanks to foes, who
Fear it; for God himself fights by our side with
Weapons of the spirit. Were they to take our house,
Goods, honor, child, or spouse, though life be wrenched away.
They cannot win the day. The kingdom's ours forever!

How Great Thou Art
Refrain: 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!

1. O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder consider
All the works they hand hath made. I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder thy pow'r throughout the universe displayed;

2. When through the woods and forest glades I wander,
I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees:
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur and Hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze;

3. But when I think that 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:

4. When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration and there proclaim,
"My God, how great thou art!"
