ecclesia song


We are called to faith, gathered in love
Sent with hope to change the world
We are called to faith, gathered in love
ecclesia, ecclesia, Church at the Chip

   Called to Faith, Gathered in Love,
   Sent with Hope – ecclesia!

Psalm 30


1 I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up
    and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
2 O Lord my God, I cried to you for help,
    and you have healed me.
3 O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol;
    you restored me to life from among those who go
  down to the pit.

4 Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
    and give thanks to his holy name.
5 For his anger is but for a moment,
    and his favor is for a lifetime.
  Weeping may tarry for the night,
    but joy comes with the morning.

6 As for me, I said in my prosperity,
    "I shall never be moved."
7 By your favor, O Lord,
     you made my mountain stand strong;
   you hid your face;
     I was dismayed.

8 To you, O Lord, I cry,
    and to the Lord I plead for mercy:
9 "What profit is there in my death,
    if I go down to the pit?
  Will the dust praise you?
10 Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!
    O Lord, be my helper!"

11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
    you have loosed my sackcloth
    and clothed me with gladness,
12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
    O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!

Love Lifted Me


I was sinking deep in sin
Far from that peaceful shore
Very deeply stained within
Sinking to rise no more
But the Master of the sea
Heard my despairing cry
From the waters lifted me
Now safe am I

   Love lifted me, love lifted me
   When nothing else could help
   Love lifted me
   Love lifted me, love lifted me
   When nothing else could help
   Love lifted me

Souls in danger look above
Jesus completely saves
He will lift you by his love
Out of the angry waves
Love so mighty and so true
Merits my soul's best songs
Faithful loving service too
To him belongs


I've Been Set Free


   I've been set free
   I've been set free
   Since Jesus saved my soul I've been set free
   With blinded eyes I could not see
   But the Lord delivered me
   Now I praise his holy name
   I've been set free

Once when Jesus came to town
Everybody gathered round
All the sick and lame were brought to him that day
When the blind man begged for sight
He shouted out with great delight
Jesus touched his eyes and healed him on that day


Once my life was steeped in sin
But I wouldn't let him in
I thought that I could make it on my own
Farther down sin's road I went
Saw no reason to repent
Then Jesus intervened and rescued me


Sinner friend if you're in doubt
And you see there's no way out
You find yourself alone in sinkin' sand
Why not give my God a try
Your thirsty soul he'll satisfy
You'll find your place in heaven when you die


I Can't Even Walk


I thought number one would surely be me
I thought I could be what I wanted to be
I thought I could build on life's sinking sand
But now I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand
   The mountains too high and the valleys too wide
   Down on my knees that's where I learned to stand
   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

I thought I could do a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty big man
But Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand


I think I'll make Jesus my all and all
And if I'm in trouble on his name I'll call
If I didn't trust him I'd be less of a man
'Cause Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand


Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

Our Vision (Part 2)

Steve Gilbertson

"So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
These words are so often used in wedding ceremonies that they have become
almost cliche. This is a shame, for these virtues reflect God's answer to the deep
needs of every human heart: something to believe; somewhere to belong; and
something to live for.

1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
2 We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our
prayers, 3 remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor
of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:8
8 ...since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate

of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.

Colossians 1:3-5
3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray

for you, 4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that
you have for all the saints, 5 because of the hope laid up for you in heaven.

Ephesians 1:15-18
15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and
your love toward all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you,
remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in 
the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that
you may know what is the hope to which he has called you...

1 Corinthians 13:13
13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of

these is love.
