Psalm 23


1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2   He makes me lie down in green pastures.

  He leads me beside still waters.

3   He restores my soul.

  He leads me in paths of righteousness

    for his name's sake.

 

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow
  of death,

    I will fear no evil,

  for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,

    they comfort me.

 

5 You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies,

  you anoint my head with oil;

    my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

    all the days of my life,

  and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord

    forever.

 


Welcome Table

   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table

   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table one of these days

   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table

   Sit at the welcome table one of these days, one of these days

 

I'm gonna feast on milk and honey

I'm gonna feast on milk and honey one of these days

I'm gonna feast on milk and honey

Gonna feast on milk and honey one of these days

 

   Chorus

 

All God's children gonna sit together

All God's children gonna sit together one of these days, hallelujah

All God's children gonna sit together

All God's children gonna sit together one of these days, one of these days

 

   Chorus

 


I've Been Changed

Well, I've been to the river, I've been baptized

I've been washed in the blood of the lamb

I've been changed from the creature that once I was

And "Redeemed" is now my name

 

   I've been changed

   I've been "new-born"

   All my life has been rearranged

   What a difference it made

   When the Lord came and stayed in my heart

   Oh, yes, I've been changed

 

Though my sins were as scarlet, they're white as snow

I was bound, but today I am free

I was lost in darkness, but now am found

I was blind but now I see

 

   Chorus

 

Like the poor Hebrew children, I wandered along

In a bare desert land to and fro

But I've crossed over Jordan to Canaan's land

Where the milk and honey flow

 

   Chorus

 

When at last in his presence I stand alone

He will wipe all the tears from my eyes

And I'll thank him for giving a wretch like me

Lasting hope beyond the skies

 

   Chorus

 


Come As You Are

Come out of sadness from wherever you've been

Come, brokenhearted let rescue begin

Come find your mercy, O sinner, come kneel

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

 

   Lay down your burdens

   Lay down your shame

   All who are broken

   Lift up your face

   O wanderer, come home

   You're not too far

   So lay down your hurt, lay down your heart

   Come as you are

 

There's hope for the hopeless

And all those who've strayed

Come sit at the table

Come taste the grace

There's rest for the weary

Rest that endures

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't cure (to chorus) ...So...

 

   Chorus

 

Come as you are

Come as you are

Fall in his arms

Come as you are

 

There's joy for the morning

O sinner, be still

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

 

   Chorus

 


A Most Unlikely Disciple

Steve Gilbertson
Matthew 9:9-17

When Matthew went to work that day, he had no clue that the whole
trajectory of his life was about to change. As a tax collector for the 
hated Romans, he was among the least likely of those whom Jesus 
would choose to be in his inner circle. Imagine his surprise, then, when
Jesus looked at him and said, "Follow Me!" What do we learn about
Jesus and his kingdom from this beautiful story?

9 As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the
tax booth, and he said to him, "Follow me." And he rose and followed him.

10 And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors
and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And when
the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat
with tax collectors and sinners?" 12 But when he heard it, he said, "Those who
are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 Go and learn
what this means: 'I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.' For I came not to call the
righteous, but sinners."

14 Then the disciples of John came to him, saying, "Why do we and the Pharisees
fast, but your disciples do not fast?" 15 And Jesus said to them, "Can the wedding
guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when
the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. 16 No one puts
a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch tears away from the
garment, and a worse tear is made. 17 Neither is new wine put into old wineskins.
If it is, the skins burst and the wine is spilled and the skins are destroyed. But new
wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved."
