Song Celebration: “Raise a Hallelujah”

I raise a hallelujah

in the presence of my enemies.
I raise a hallelujah

louder than the unbelief.

I raise a hallelujah;

my weapon is a melody.
I raise a hallelujah;

heaven comes to fight for me.

 

I’m gonna sing

in the middle of the storm.
Louder and louder,

you’re gonna hear my praises roar.

Up from the ashes hope will arise.
Death is defeated; the King is alive.

 

I raise a hallelujah

with everything inside of me.

I raise a hallelujah;

I will watch the darkness flee.

I raise a hallelujah

in the middle of the mystery.

I raise a hallelujah;

Fear, you lost your hold on me.

 

I’m gonna sing

in the middle of the storm.

Louder and louder,

you’re gonna hear my praises roar.

Up from the ashes hope will arise.

Death is defeated; the King is alive.

 

I raise a hallelujah

in the presence of my enemies.

I raise a hallelujah

louder than the unbelief.

I raise a hallelujah;

my weapon is a melody.

I raise a hallelujah;

heaven comes to fight for me.

 

I’m gonna sing

in the middle of the storm.

Louder and louder,

you’re gonna hear my praises roar.

Up from the ashes hope will arise.

Death is defeated; the King is alive.

 

I’m gonna sing

in the middle of the storm.

Louder and louder,

you’re gonna hear my praises roar.

Up from the ashes hope will arise.

Death is defeated; the King is alive.

 

I raise a hallelujah.

I raise a hallelujah.

I raise a hallelujah.

I raise a hallelujah.

Song Celebration:  “10,000 Reasons”

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,

Worship His holy name,

Sing like never before, O my soul

I’ll worship Your holy name

 

The sun comes up,

it’s a new day dawning;

It’s time to sing Your song again.

Whatever may pass,

and whatever lies before me,

Let me be singing

when the evening comes

 

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,

Worship His holy name,

Sing like never before, O my soul

I’ll worship Your holy name

 

You’re rich in love,

And You’re slow to anger,

Your name is great,

and Your heart is kind.

For all Your goodness,

I will keep on singing;

Ten thousand reasons

for my heart to find

 

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,

Worship His holy name,

Sing like never before, O my soul

I’ll worship Your holy name

 

And on that day

when my strength is failing

The end draws near,

and my time has come;

Still my soul will sing

Your praise unending:

Ten thousand years

and then forevermore!

 

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,

Worship His holy name,

Sing like never before, O my soul

I’ll worship Your holy name

 

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,

Worship His holy name,

Sing like never before, O my soul

I’ll worship Your holy name

I’ll worship Your holy name.

I’ll worship Your holy name.

 

Sing like never before, O my soul.

I’ll worship Your holy name.

I’ll worship Your holy name.

I’ll worship Your holy name.

Children’s Time – Matthew Swigart and William Almodovar

Sharing of Joys and Concerns and Lord’s Prayer – William Almodovar

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.   Amen.

Song:  “Give Me Your Eyes/Power of Your Name”

Give me Your eyes for just one second,

Give me Your eyes so I can see

Everything that I keep missin ’

Give me Your love for humanity.

Give me Your arms for the brokenhearted,

The ones that are far beyond my reach.

Give me your heart for the ones forgotten.

Give me Your eyes so I can see.

 

Surely life wasn’t made to regret,

And the lost were not made to forget.

Surely faith without action is dead.

Let Your Kingdom come.

Lord, break this heart.

 

And I will live to carry Your compassion,

To love a world that’s broken,

To be Your hands and feet.

And I will give with the life

 that I’ve been given,

And go beyond religion

to see the world be changed

By the power of Your name,

The power of Your name.

 

I’ve been here a million times,

A couple of million eyes

Just move and pass me by;

I never tho’t that I was wrong.

I need a second glance.

Give me a second chance

To see the way You’ve seen

the people all along.

 

Give me Your eyes for just one second,

Give me Your eyes so I can see

Everything that I keep missin’

Give me Your love for humanity.

Give me Your arms for the brokenhearted,

The ones that are far beyond my reach.

Give me your heart for the ones forgotten.

Give me Your eyes so I can see.

 

And I will live to carry Your compassion,

To love a world that’s broken,

To be Your hands and feet.

And I will give with the life

that I’ve been given,

And go beyond religion

To see the world be changed

By the power of Your name,

The power of Your name.

The power of Your name.

Scripture: Mark 4: 30-32 – Ian Lowe

He also said, ‘With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.’

Song:  “Send Me”

Take my hands they are Yours to use.

Take my feet; I will follow You.

Fill my mouth, give me words to pray.

Break my heart with what brings You pain.

 

Right here in this moment,

I can hear Your spirit call;

So I’m coming as Your servant,

Surrendering my all.

 

Here am I, send me. Here am I, send me.

Savior, I’ll take Your message to the world.

Here am I, send me. Here am I, send me.

Savior, I’ll take Your message to the world

Send me.

 

Take my eyes, help me see the need.

Tune my ears to Your heartbeat.

Take my all, my silver and my gold.

I lay it down at Your feet, my Lord.

 

Right here in this moment,

I dare not walk away,

for I see a world so broken

Father hear me pray.

 

Here am I, send me. Here am I, send me.

Savior, I’ll take Your message to the world.

Here am I, send me. Here am I, send me.

Savior, I’ll take Your message to the world.

 

Here am I, send me. Here am I, send me.

Savior, I’ll take Your message to the world.

Here am I, send me. Here am I, send me.

Savior, I’ll take Your message to the world.

Send me.
