Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – January 12th, 2014

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on January 12th, 2014.

Song: “Take” by Eric Tseng. Adapted from lyrics by Frances Ridley Havergal, Henri Abraham and Cesar Malan

Reading: Call to Worship

L: Let all that we are wait quietly before God, for our hope is in Him. He alone is our rock and our salvation, our fortress where we will not be shaken. Our victory and honor come from God alone.
C: He is our refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach us.
L: People of God, trust in Him at all times.
C: We pour out our hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.

—Based on Psalm 62:5-8

Song: “Come Thou Fount” by Robert Robinson and John Wyeth

Reading: Confession

L: You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you,
Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
C: Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. 

– Psalm 139:1-6; 23-24

Song: “White As Snow” by Jon Foreman

Reading: Assurance

C: For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood
–Romans 3:23-26

Song: “Not In Me” by Eric Schumacher and David L. Ward

Reading: Commitment 

L: People of God, we have been cleansed of our sin, given a new heart of flesh and filled with the Spirit of the Lord! Respond to this miracle with joy and humble obedience.
C: For the Lord’s name is Holy! He is to be worshipped above all. May we be transformed by his Glory and may our mission be to proclaim his glorious work, revealed in Jesus, in all that we say and do.

Song: “Be Thou My Vision” by Mary Elizabeth Byrne and Eleanor Henrietta Hull


Hear this benediction as we go:

L:  Know that you have been saved from death by the sacrifice of Christ. Trust in the spirit’s guidance and the promise of eternity, made by the one who has brought you from death to life. Go in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
C: And also with you.
