Scripture Reading
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Pastoral Prayer

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

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
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

VERSE 3
His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all my Hope and Stay

VERSE 4
When He shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne

CHORUS

BRIDGE
All my hope is in you
All my strength is in you
All my peace is in you
All my life is in you (x2)

CHORUS
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

O Praise the Name
Verse 1
I cast my mind to Calvary Where Jesus bled and died for me
I see His wounds His hands His feet My Savior on that cursed tree

Verse 2
His body bound and drenched in tears They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb
The entrance sealed by heavy stone Messiah still and left a – lone

Chorus 1
O praise the Name of the Lord our God
O praise His Name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord oh Lord our God

Verse 3
Then on the third at break of dawn The Son of heaven rose again
O trampled death where is your sting The angels roar for Christ the King

Verse 4
He shall return in robes of white The blazing sun shall pierce the night
And I will rise among the saints My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face

Sermon
Colossians 3:1-4
3 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

 In Christ Alone
In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All, here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness Scorned by the ones he came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died, The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid; Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine – Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

Bridge
I find my strength I find my hope
I find my help in Christ alone
When fear assails when darkness falls
I find my peace In Christ alone
I give my life I give my all
I sing this song to Christ alone
The King of Kings the Lord of all
All heaven sings to Christ alone

No guilt in life, no fear in death, This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath. Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man, Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home, Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

Before the Throne of God Above
Before the throne of God above, I have a strong, a perfect plea:
A great High Priest, whose name is Love, Who ever lives and pleads for me.

My name is graven on his hands, My name is written on his heart;
I know that while in heaven he stands, No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair, And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look, and see him there, Who made an end of all my sin.

Because a sinless Savior died, My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied, To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Praise the One,
Risen Son of God!

Behold him there, the risen Lamb, My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I am, The King of glory and of grace

One in himself, I cannot die, My soul is purchased by his blood
My life is hid with Christ on high, With Christ, my Savior and my God
With Christ, my Savior and my God
