One Pure and Holy Passion

Verse 1

Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Jesus give me one glorious ambition for my life
To know and follow hard after You

Chorus 1

To know and follow hard after You
To grow as Your disciple in the truth
This world is empty pale and poor
Compared to knowing You my Lord
Lead me on and I will run after You

Misc 1

(Ending)
Lead me on and I will run after You
Lead me on and I will run after You

Purify my heart
Let me be as gold

Purify my heart
Let me be as gold

My heart’s one desire
Is to be holy
Set apart for You Lord
I choose to be holy
Set apart for You my Master
Ready to do Your will

Cleanse me from within
And make me holy
Purify my heart
Cleanse me from my sin
Deep within

Sweetly Broken

Verse 1

To the cross I look
And to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing
On it my Savior
Both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just

Chorus 1

(And) At the cross You beckon me
(You) draw me gently to my knees
And I am lost for words
So lost in love
I’m sweetly broken
Wholly surrendered

Verse 2

What a priceless gift
Undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified
You called me out of death
You called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross
I’m reconciled

Misc 1

(Bridge)
In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love
And how great is Your faithfulness

CCLI Song # 4514635 — CCLI License # 1632938
I Surrender All

Verse 1

All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live

Chorus 1

I surrender all
I surrender all
All to Thee my blessed Savior
I surrender all

Verse 2

All to Jesus I surrender
Humbly at His feet I bow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me Jesus take me now

Verse 3

All to Jesus I surrender
Make me Savior wholly Thine
Let me feel the Holy Spirit
Truly know that Thou art mine

Verse 4

All to Jesus I surrender
Lord I give myself to Thee
Fill me with Thy love and power
Let Thy blessing fall on me

Verse 5

All to Jesus I surrender
Now I feel the sacred flame
O the joy of full salvation
Glory glory to His name

11 AM Call to Worship

Psalm 22:23-31 Responsive Reading

Leader: You who fear the Lord, praise him!
All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him,
and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!

People: For he has not despised or abhorred
the affliction of the afflicted,
and he has not hidden his face from him,
but has heard, when he cried to him.

Leader: From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
my vows I will perform before those who fear him.

People: The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied;
those who seek him shall praise the Lord!
May your hearts live forever!

Leader: All the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
shall worship before you.

People: For kingship belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.

Leader: All the prosperous of the earth eat and worship;
before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
even the one who could not keep himself alive.

People: Posterity shall serve him;
it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation;

All: they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn,
that he has done it.

But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou bidds’t me come to Thee

Marvellous grace of our loving Lord
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt

Grace that will pardon and cleanse within

Grace that is greater than all our sin

Sin and despair like the sea waves cold
Threaten the soul with infinite loss
Grace that is greater yes grace untold
Points to the refuge the mighty Cross

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide
What can avail to wash it away
Look there is flowing a crimson tide
Whiter than snow you may be today

Marvellous infinite matchless grace
Freely bestowed on all who believe
You that are longing to see His face
Will you this moment His grace receive
