Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – November 17th, 2013

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on November 17th, 2013.

Song: “Holy, Holy, Holy” by Reginald Heber

Reading: Call to Worship

L: The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.
C: Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name—he is holy.
L: The King is mighty, he loves justice—you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right.

C: Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
– Ps 99:1-5

Song: “Praise To The Lord” by  Joachim Neander and Catherine Winkworth

Reading: Confession

L: O Lord, in light of Your glory and holiness, we confess that our wills are rebellious, our faith is often more show then substance, our worship of You is often based more on our feelings rather than Your glory. Our hearts seek our own comfort and lead us to sin instead of following and trusting You, our Savior, our Messiah. Have mercy on us, O God. Help us to give to You all that we are and all that we have. Trusting You to lead us to repentance, to forgive what is sinful, to heal what is broken, to mold and shape us for Your glory. 
C: We confess our need for You, our Savior, and trust in the work You accomplished for us on the cross. It’s in Your holy name that we pray. Amen.

Song: “Lead Us Back” by Bobby Gilles and Brooks Ritter

Song: “Sovereign God” by Maurette Brown Clark

Song: “How Deep The Father’s Love For Us” by Stuart Townend

Reading: Commitment 

L: [For we know] that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God. So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 
(2 Corinthians 4:14-18, ESV)

Song: “Absent From Flesh” by Jamie Barnes


Hear this benediction as we go:

L: May the grace of Christ give us rest in the midst of turmoil, and may the love of God being us peace in times of suffering, and may the power of the Holy Spirit enable us to have hope in the Gospel and to live for the glory of the Almighty God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Peace be with you.
C: And also with you.
