Welcome

Singing: Cornerstone

William Batchelder Bradbury, Eric Liljero, Reuben Morgan, Edward Mote, and Jonas Myrin

Verse 1
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus’ name

(repeat)

Chorus
Christ alone, cornerstone
Weak made strong in the saviour’s love
Through the storm, he is Lord
Lord of all

Verse 2
When darkness seems to hide his face
I rest on his unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

Chorus
Christ alone, cornerstone
Weak made strong in the saviour’s love
Through the storm, he is Lord
Lord of all

Verse 3
When he shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in him be found
Dressed in his righteousness alone
Faultless, stand before the throne

Chorus
Christ alone, cornerstone
Weak made strong in the saviour’s love
Through the storm, he is Lord
Lord of all

Singing: The Servant King

Graham Kendrick

Verse 1
From heav’n You came helpless babe
Enter’d our world Your glory veil’d
Not to be served but to serve
And give Your life that we might live

Chorus
This is our God the servant king
He calls us now to follow Him
To bring our lives as a daily offering
Of worship to the servant king

Verse 2
There in the garden of tears
My heavy load He chose to bear
His heart with sorrow was torn
Yet not my will but Yours He said

Chorus
This is our God the servant king
He calls us now to follow Him
To bring our lives as a daily offering
Of worship to the servant king

Verse 3
Come see His hands and His feet
The scars that speak of sacrifice
Hands that flung stars into space
To cruel nails surrendered

Chorus
This is our God the servant king
He calls us now to follow Him
To bring our lives as a daily offering
Of worship to the servant king

Verse 4
So let us learn how to serve
And in our lives enthrone Him
Each other’s needs to prefer
For it is Christ we’re serving

Chorus
This is our God the servant king
He calls us now to follow Him
To bring our lives as a daily offering
Of worship to the servant king

Singing: Jerusalem

Jonny Robinson and Rich Thompson

Verse 1
See Him in Jerusalem
Walking where the crowds are
Once these streets had sung to Him
Now they cry for murder
Such a frail and lonely man
Holding up the heavy cross
See Him walking in Jerusalem
On the road to save us

Verse 2
See Him there upon the hill
Hear the scorn and laughter
Silent as a lamb He waits
Praying to the Father
See the king who made the sun
And the moon and shining stars
Let the soldiers hold and nail Him down
So that He could save them

Verse 3
See Him there upon the cross
Now no longer breathing
Dust that formed the watching crowds
Takes the blood of Jesus
Feel the earth is shaking now
See the veil is split in two
And He stood before the wrath of God
Shielding sinners with His blood

Verse 4
See the empty tomb today
Death could not contain Him
Once the servant of the world
Now in vict’ry reigning
Lift your voices to the one
Who is seated on the throne
See Him in the new Jerusalem
Praise the one who saved us

Lift your voices to the one
Who is seated on the throne
See Him in the new Jerusalem
Praise the one who saved us
Praise the one who saved us

Bible Reading: Hebrews 11:1-5; 32-34

Sermon: Triumph and tragedy, faith and folly (Preacher: Martin Ricquebourg)

Singing: How Deep The Father’s Love For Us

Stuart Townend

Verse 1
How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That he should give his only son
To make a wretch his treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns his face away
As wounds which mar the chosen one
Bring many sons to glory

Verse 2
Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon his shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

Verse 3
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from his reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Why should I gain from his reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
