Psalm 38


1 O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger,
    nor discipline me in your wrath!
2 For your arrows have sunk into me,
    and your hand has come down on me.

3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of your indignation;
    there is no health in my bones because of my sin.
4 For my iniquities have gone over my head;
    like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.

5 My wounds stink and fester
    because of my foolishness,
6 I am utterly bowed down and prostrate;
    all the day I go about mourning.

7 For my sides are filled with burning,
    and there is no soundness in my flesh.

8 I am feeble and crushed;
    I groan because of the tumult of my heart.

9 O Lord, all my longing is before you;
    my sighing is not hidden from you.
10 My heart throbs; my strength fails me,
    and the light of my eyes-it also has gone from me.

11 My friends and companions stand aloof from my plague,
    and my nearest kin stand far off.

12 Those who seek my life lay their snares;
    those who seek my hurt speak of ruin

     and meditate treachery all day long.

13 But I am like a deaf man; I do not hear,
    like a mute man who does not open his mouth.
14 I have become like a man who does not hear,
    and in whose mouth are no rebukes.

15 But for you, O Lord, do I wait;
    it is you, O Lord my God, who will answer.
16 For I said, "Only let them not rejoice over me,
    who boast against me when my foot slips!"

17 For I am ready to fall,
    and my pain is ever before me.
18 I confess my iniquity;
    I am sorry for my sin.
19 But my foes are vigorous, they are mighty,
    and many are those who hate me wrongfully.
20 Those who render me evil for good
    accuse me because I follow after good.

21 Do not forsake me, O Lord!
    O my God, be not far from me!
22 Make haste to help me,
    O Lord, my salvation!

This I Know

Up on the mountain
Where your love captured me
Where finally I am free
This I know

Up on the mountain
Where you taught my soul to sing
Amazing grace, the sweetest thing
This I know

And then the storm rushing in
And here I am again
This I know

   Take me up to where I was
   When I never wanted more than you
   Lift me up to feel your touch
   It wouldn't be that much for you

   This I know
   This I know
   This I know
   This I know

Up on the mountain
Where you took me by the hand
Taught me to dance again
This I know

Up on the mountain
Where you took this heart of stone
Put life back in these bones
This I know


Every Ditch and Valley (Isaiah 40)

A voice says cry out all men are like grass
And their time of glory soon shall pass
But the word of God it will never die
Surely it will stand for eternity

   Every ditch and valley shall be raised up
   Every hill and mountain be made low
   Every rugged place will be made flat
   Everybody shall see the glory of the Lord

You who bring good news raise your voice and shout
Do not be afraid to speak the name of God
The hard days are gone the debt has been paid
And the time has come to walk the righteous way


How Great Thou Art

Oh Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works
Thy hands have made
I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout
The universe displayed

   Then sings my soul
   My Savior, God, to Thee
   How great thou art
   How great thou art
   Then sings my soul
   My Savior, God, to Thee
   How great Thou Art
   How great Thou Art

When through the woods
And forest glades I wander
And hear the birds
Sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook
And feel the gentle breeze


And when I think
Of God h
is son not sparing
Sent him to die
I scarce can take it in
That on the cross
My burden gladly bearing
He bled and died
To take away my sin


When Christ shall come

With shout of acclamation
And take me home
What joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow
With humble adoration
And then proclaim
My God, how great Thou art


Behold my Servant

Steve Gilbertson
Matthew 12:15-21

The first Sunday of Advent always catches us by surprise: "Wait a minute! Didn't we
just have Thanksgiving?" We're not expecting it, and yet here it is, in the middle of a
pandemic, in the throes of football and turkey, in the face of political, racial and
unrest--the simple and powerful Word: "Behold, my Servant whom I have
chosen...In his
name the (nations) will hope." Today, let us Behold the Servant in
whose name (we) hope.

Matthew 12:15-21

9 He went on from there and entered their synagogue. 10 And a man was there with a withered
hand. And they asked him, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?'-so that they might accuse him.
11 He said to them, "Which one of you who has a sheep, if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will
not take hold of it and lift it out? 12 Of how much more value is a man than a sheep! So it is
lawful to do good on the Sabbath." 13 Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And the
man stretched it out, and it was restored, healthy like the other. 14 But the Pharisees went out
and conspired against him, how to destroy him.

15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all
16 and ordered them not to make him known. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken by the
prophet Isaiah:

18    "Behold, my servant whom I have chosen,
          my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.
        I will put my Spirit upon him,
          and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
19    He will not quarrel or cry aloud,
          nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets;
20    a bruised reed he will not break,
          and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
       until he brings justice to victory;
21       and in his name the Gentiles will hope."

22 Then a demon-oppressed man who was blind and mute was brought to him, and he healed
him, so that the man spoke and saw. 23 And all the people were amazed, and said, "Can this be
the Son of David?" 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, "It is only by Beelzebul, the prince
of demons, that this man casts out demons." 25 Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, "Every
kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.
26 And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?
27 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will
be your judges. 28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God
has come upon you. 29 Or how can someone enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless
he first binds the strong man? Then indeed he may plunder his house. 30 Whoever is not with me is
against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. 31 Therefore I tell you, every sin and
blasphemy will be forgiven people, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. 32 And
whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy
Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
