Hymn: Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”

 

Joyful, joyful, we adore thee,

God of glory, Lord of love;

hearts unfold like flowers before thee,

opening to the sun above.

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;

drive the dark of doubt away;

giver of immortal gladness,

fill us with the light of day!

 

All thy works with joy surround thee,

earth and heaven reflect thy rays,

stars and angels sing around thee,

center of unbroken praise.

Field and forest, vale and mountain,

flowery meadow, flashing sea,

singing bird and flowing fountain

call us to rejoice in thee.

 

Thou art giving and forgiving,

ever blessing, ever blest,

wellspring of the joy of living,

ocean depth of happy rest!

Thou our Father, Christ our brother,

all who live in love are thine;

teach us how to love each other,

lift us to the joy divine.

 

Mortals, join the happy chorus,

which the morning stars began;

love divine is reigning o'er us,

binding all within its span.

Ever singing, march we onward,

victors in the midst of strife,

joyful music leads us sunward

in the triumph song of life.

 

PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD

 

 

Words of Assurance

 

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, God fills our souls with grace and wisdom.

It is from this grace that we have hope. It is from this wisdom that we know God’s love.

It is from the living God that we find life and forgiveness.

Praises be to God.

 

 

*Old Testament Reading: Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31

 

1    Does not wisdom call,

          and does not understanding raise her voice?

2  On the heights, beside the way,

          at the crossroads she takes her stand;

3  beside the gates in front of the town,

          at the entrance of the portals she cries out:

4  “To you, O people, I call,

          and my cry is to all that live.

22 The Lord created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of long ago.

23 Ages ago I was set up,

          at the first, before the beginning of the earth.

24 When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water.

25 Before the mountains had been shaped,

          before the hills, I was brought forth—

26 when he had not yet made earth and fields,

          or the world’s first bits of soil.

27 When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,

28 when he made firm the skies above,

          when he established the fountains of the deep,

29 when he assigned to the sea its limit,

          so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth,

30 then I was beside him, like a master worker;

          and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always,

31 rejoicing in his inhabited world

          and delighting in the human race.

 

Leader:   This is the Word of God, for the People of God

People:  Thanks be to God!

Sermon: “Does Not Wisdom Call” John 16:12-15

 

12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

 

RESPONSE TO THE WORD

 

Hymn: “Holy, Holy, Holy”

 

Holy, holy, holy!

Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning

our song shall rise to thee.

Holy, holy, holy!

Merciful and mighty,

God in three persons

blessed Trinity!

 

Holy, holy, holy!

All the saints adore thee,

casting down their golden crowns

around the glassy sea;

cherubim and seraphim

falling down before thee,

which wert, and art, and

evermore shall be.

 

Holy, holy, holy!

Though the darkness hide thee,

though the eye of sinful man

thy glory may not see,

only Thou art holy;

there is none beside thee,

perfect in power, in love and purity

 

Holy, holy, holy!

Lord God Almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name,

in earth and sky and sea.

Holy, holy, holy!

Merciful and mighty,

God in three persons

Blessed Trinity.

 

Psalter: Psalm 8

 

1    O Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!

2    Your glory is chanted above the heavens

by the mouth of babes and infants;

you have set up a defense against your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.

3    When I look at your heavens, the work of

your fingers,

the moon and the stars which you have established;

4    what are human beings that you are

mindful of them,

and mortals that you care for them?

5    Yet you have made them little less than

God,

and crowned them with glory and honor.

6    You have given them dominion over the

works of your hands;

you have put all things under their feet,

7    all sheep and oxen,

and also the beast of the field,

8    the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,

whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

9    O Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!

 

Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow

 

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

praise him, all creatures here below;

praise him above, ye heavenly host;

praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Amen

SENDING FORTH

 

Hymn: “Victory In Jesus”

 

I heard an old, old story,

how a Savior came from glory,

how he gave his life on Calvary

to save a wretch like me;

I heard about his groaning,

of his precious blood's atoning,

then I repented of my sins

and won the victory.

 

O victory in Jesus,

my Savior for ever!

He sought me and bought me

with his redeeming blood;

he loved me ere I knew him,

and all my love is due him;

he plunged me to victory

beneath the cleansing flood.

 

I heard about his healing,

of his cleansing power revealing,

how he made the lame to walk again

and caused the blind to see;

and then I cried, "Dear Jesus,

came and heal my broken spirit,"

and some how Jesus came and

brought to me the victory.

 

O victory in Jesus,

my Savior for ever!

He sought me and bought me

with his redeeming blood;

he loved me ere I knew him,

and all my love is due him;

he plunged me to victory

beneath the cleansing flood.

 

I heard about a mansion

he has built for me in glory,

and I heard about the streets of gold

beyond the crystal sea;

about the angels singing

and the old redemption story,

and some sweet day

I'll sing up there

the song of victory.

 

O victory in Jesus,

my Savior for ever!

He sought me and bought me

with his redeeming blood;

he loved me ere I knew him,

and all my love is due him;

he plunged me to victory

beneath the cleansing flood.

 

 

Benediction
