Call to Worship (Trinity Hymnal #1)
All people that on earth do dwell, sing to the Lord with cheerful voice; him serve with fear, his praise forth tell, come ye before him and rejoice.
O enter then his gates with praise, approach with joy his courts unto; praise, laud, and bless his name always, for it is seemly so to do.
Confession of Sin (Trinity Hymnal #486)
God, be merciful to me, on thy grace I rest my plea; plenteous in compassion thou, blot out my transgressions now; wash me, make me pure within, cleanse, O cleanse me from my sin.
My transgressions I confess, grief and guilt my soul oppress; I have sinned against thy grace and provoked thee to thy face; I confess thy judgment just, speechless, I thy mercy trust.
Song of Assurance (Trinity Hymnal #519)
Jesus, thy blood and righteousness my beauty are, my glorious dress; 'midst flaming worlds, in these arrayed, with joy shall I lift up my head.
Bold shall I stand in thy great day; for who aught to my charge shall lay? fully absolved through these I am from sin and fear, from guilt and shame.
Confession of Faith (Trinity Hymnal #742)
1 I believe in God the Father, Maker of all heav'n and earth; and in Jesus Christ, our Savior, God's own Son, of matchless worth; by the Spirit was conceived, of the virgin Mary born, he in whom I have believed: God Almighty, Three in One.
2 Suffered under Pontius Pilate, crucified, for me he died; laid within the grave so silent, gates of hell he opened wide; for the stone-sealed tomb was empty; on the third day he arose; into heaven made his entry, mighty conqu'ror of his foes.
3 At God's right hand he is seated till his coming, as he said; final judgment will be meted to the living and the dead; I confess the Holy Spirit who was sent through Christ the Son to apply salvation's merit - God, the Spirit, Three in One.
4 I believe the church of Jesus, universal, e'er remains; we are one through all the ages, in communion of the saints. I believe sins are forgiven, that our bodies will be raised to eternal life in heaven: ever let his name be praised.
Call to Communion (Trinity Hymnal #305)
Let us lift up our hearts to heaven where Christ sits at the right hand of the Father!
Arise, my soul, arise, shake off your guilty fears: the bleeding Sacrifice in my behalf appears: before the throne my Surety stands, before the throne my Surety stands, my name is written on his hands.
The Lord's Supper
Song of Covenant Renewal (Trinity Hymnal #429)
1 Let thy blood in mercy poured, let thy gracious body broken, be to me, O gracious Lord, of thy boundless love the token:
Refrain: Thou didst give thyself for me, now I give myself to thee.
2 Thou didst die that I might live; blessed Lord, thou cam'st to save me; all that love of God could give Jesus by his sorrows gave me. [Refrain]
3 By the thorns that crowned thy brow, by the spear wound and the nailing, by the pain and death, I now claim, O Christ, thy love unfailing. [Refrain]
4 Wilt thou own the gift I bring? All my penitence I give thee; thou art my exalted King, of thy matchless love forgive me. [Refrain]
