Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – March 2nd, 2014

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on March 2nd, 2014.

Song: “Wait” by Anthony Evans

Reading: Call to Worship

C: O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens.
L: You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place— what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority—the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents.

C: O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
– Psalm 8 (NLT)

Song: “Our Great God” by Fernando Ortega and Mac Powell

Reading: Confession

L: I am blind, be thou my light, ignorant, be thou my wisdom, self-willed, be thou my mind. Open my ear to grasp quickly thy Spirit’s voice, melt my conscience that no hardness remain. When Satan approaches may I flee to thy wounds, and there cease to tremble at all alarms. Be my good shepherd to lead me into the green pastures of thy Word, and cause me to lie down beside the rivers of its comforts. Thy cross was upraised to be my refuge, thy blood streamed forth to wash me clean. I was a stranger, an outcast, a slave, a rebel, but thy cross has brought me near.  Amen, 
– Adapted from “Need of Jesus” – The Valley of Vision

Song: “Empty Me Out” by Liz Vice

Reading: Assurance

L: So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.
C: So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

– Heb 4:14-16

Song: “Oh God” by Citizens (Mars Hill)
