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?

Great God Of Love

THEME: The magnitude of our salvation, that we were dead and God made us alive, should awaken the loudest praise we can muster. What love but God's could run so deep, and extend so low, and raise to such height?


Lyrics | Description

And can it be that I should gain

An interest in the Savior's blood?

Died He for me who caused His pain

For me who Him to death pursued

HOW CAN IT BE MY DEBT WAS PAID

MY SIN ERASED, YOUR WRATH WAS STAYED?

THE LAMB WAS SLAIN, ATONEMENT MADE!

ALL THANKS AND PRAISE TO YOU GREAT GOD OF LOVE

 

You left your Father's throne above

So free, so infinite your grace

Emptied yourself of all but love

And died for Adam's helpless race

TIS MERCY ALL, IMMENSE AND FREE

FOR O MY GOD, IT FOUND OUT ME

AMAZING LOVE, HOW CAN IT BE!

ALL THANKS AND PRAISE TO YOU GREAT GOD OF LOVE

 

Long my imprisoned spirit lay

Fastbound in sin and nature's night

Your eye diffused a quick'ning ray

I woke, the dungeon flamed with light

MY CHAINS FELL OFF, MY HEART WAS FREE

I ROSE, WENT FORTH, AND FOLLOWED THEE

BOTH NOW AND THROUGH ETERNITY

ALL THANKS AND PRAISE TO YOU GREAT GOD OF LOVE

 

No condemnation now I dread

Jesus and all in Him is mine

Alive in Him, my living Head

And clothed in righteousness divine

I BOLDLY COME BEFORE YOUR THRONE

NOW MAKE YOUR WILL AND PURPOSE KNOWN

I CLAIM THE CROWN, THROUGH CHRIST, MY OWN

ALL THANKS AND PRAISE TO YOU GREAT GOD OF LOVE
