Why we Worship

PSALM 47

Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!


Why Scripture?

Be Still My Soul

THEME: Regardless what the circumstances would suggest, God is in control. And with that truth firmly fixed in our minds we can rest, trusting that he will work out everything according to his plan, which is always for the best.


Lyrics | Description

Be still my soul, the Lord is on thy side
Bear patiently the cross of grief and pain
Leave to thy God to order and provide
In every change, he faithful will remain
Be still my soul, thy best, thy heavenly friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end

Be still my soul, thy God doth undertake
To guide the future as he has the past
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake
All now mysterious shall be bright at last
Be still my soul, the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while he dwelt below

Be still my soul, the hour is hast'ning on
When we shall be forever with the Lord
When disappointment, grief and tears are gone
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored
Be still my soul, when change and tears are past
All safe and blessed, we shall meet at last
