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 56


1    Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;
        all day long an attacker oppresses me;
2    my enemies trample on me all day long
         for many attack me proudly.
3    When I am afraid,
        I put my trust in you.
4    In God, whose word I praise,
        in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.

         What can flesh do to me?

5    All day long they injure my cause;
        all their thoughts are against me for evil.

6    They stir up strife, they lurk;
        they watch my steps,

         as they have waited for my life.
7     For their crime will they escape?
         In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

8    You have kept count of my tossings;
         put my tears in your bottle.
         Are they not in your book?
9    Then my enemies will turn back
         in the day when I call.
         This I know, that God is for me.
10   In God, whose word I praise,
         in the Lord, whose word I praise
11   in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
         What can man do to me?

12   I must perform my vows to you, O God;
         I will render thank offerings to you.
13   For you have delivered my soul from death,
         yes, my feet from falling,
      that I may walk before God
         in the light of life.

Come People of the Risen King

Come, people of the risen King
Who delight to bring him praise
Come all and tune your hearts to sing
To the morning star of grace
From the shifting shadows of the earth
We will lift our eyes to him
Where steady arms of mercy reach
To gather children in

   Rejoice, rejoice
   Let every tongue rejoice
   One heart, one voice
   Church at the Chip, rejoice!

Come those whose joy is morning sun
And those weeping through the night
Come those who tell of battles won
And those struggling in the fight
For his perfect love will never change
And his mercies never cease
But follow us through all our days
With the certain hope of peace


Come, young and old from every land
Men and women of the faith
Come those with full or empty hands
Find the riches of his grace
Over all the world his people sing
Shore to shore we hear them call
The truth that cries through every age
Our God is all in all


Ain't No Grave


O my Lord, it's a winding road
It's all bent from a heavy load
Feel the weight beneath the ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

O my Lord, I can barely sing
Waiting for you and your reckoning
Angels humming, can you hear the sound
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

   I will rise, I will rise, I will rise, I will rise
   Troubles come for everyone
   Death has no respect for love
   Roll that stone I won't be found
   Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

Lord, I'm crooked from head to toe
Got dirty hands and a dirty soul
I was lost but now I'm found
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down


Woah, Woah, Woah
Feel the weight beneath the ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down


Woah, Woah, Woah
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

Because He Lives (Amen)

I believe in the Son
I believe in the risen One
I believe I overcome
By the power of his blood

   Amen, Amen
   I'm alive, I'm alive because he lives
   Amen, Amen
   Let my song join the one that never ends
   Because he lives

I was dead in the grave
I was covered in sin and shame
I heard mercy call my name
He rolled the stone away


(Because he lives) I can face tomorrow
Because he lives every fear is gone
I know he holds my life, my future in his hand

   Chorus (2x)
   Because he lives
   Because he lives

Put on the New Self (1)
Eastertide, 2021

Colossians 3:1-17
Steve Gilbertson

Easter is too important to be celebrated only one Sunday a year! During 
this Eastertide season, we continue our reflection on the present-day  
significance of the resurrection of Jesus. Last week we saw that his
resurrection gives us a new nature, a new master, and a new hope. This
week and next, we will see how the resurrection enables us to "put on the
new self" -- to become a new humanity.

Colossians 3:1-17

1 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where
Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above,
not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with
Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with
him in glory.

5 Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion,
evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 On account of these the wrath of
God is coming. 7 In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. 8 But
now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk
from your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old
self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in
knowledge after the image of its creator. 11 Here there is not Greek and Jew,
circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all,
and in all.

12 Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts,
kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one
has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so
you must also forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything
together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to
which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ
dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms
and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever
you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God
the Father through him.
