Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – April 6th, 2014

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on April 6th, 2014.

Song: “Wait” by Michael Boggs and Anthony Tyrone Evans

Reading: Call to Worship

L: Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise. You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. 
C: May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, “The Lord is great!” But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.
—Based on Psalm 50:15-17 & Psalm 40:16-17

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

Reading: Confession/Assurance

L: Eternal Father, you are good beyond all that we can comprehend, but we are vile, wretched, miserable, blind; Our lips are ready to confess, but our hearts are slow to feel and reluctant to worship.
C: Wound us, break us, bend us, mould us for your glory. Unmask to us the corruption of our hearts. For our sins we mourn, lament, and cry for pardon in your Son. Give us the fullness of godly repentance that mourns and laments, yet trusts and loves. 
L: Grant that through the tears of repentance we may see more clearly the brightness and glories of the saving cross, Amen.
—Adapted from the Valley of Vision pray: Yet I Sin

Song: “Empty Me Out” by Liz Vice

Song: “Only Your Blood” by Neil Robins, Adapted from Issac Watts

Passing of the Peace

Our Sermon this week was from Ryan Stanley on Genesis 4:1-16

Song: “Alas And Did My Savior Bleed” by Isaac Watts

Song: “Death In His Grave” by John Mark McMillan

Reading: Commitment 

L: This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. But we received this mercy for a purpose, that in us, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.
C: Now, to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen!
—based on 1 Timothy 1:15-17

Song: “Grace Alone” by Dustin Kensrue


Hear this benediction as we go:

L:Now may the God of peace who raised Jesus from the dead, through his death on the cross, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory, forever and ever. Amen. Go in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit! Peace be with you.
C: And also with you.
