Psalm 62

1    For God alone my soul waits in silence;
        from him comes my salvation.
2    He alone is my rock and my salvation,
         my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

3    How long will all of you attack a man to batter him,
        like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4    They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.
        They take pleasure in falsehood.

      They bless with their mouths,
         but inwardly they curse.     Selah

5    For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
        for my hope is from him.
6    He only is my rock and my salvation,
        my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

7     On God rests my salvation and my glory;
         my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

8    Trust in him at all times, O people;
         pour out your heart before him;
      God is a refuge for us.           Selah

9    Those of low estate are but a breath;
         those of high estate are a delusion;
      in the balances they go up;
         they are together lighter than a breath.
10   Put no trust in extortion;
         set no vain hopes on robbery;
         if riches increase, set not your heart on them.

11   Once God has spoken;
         twice have I heard this:
      that power belongs to God,
12      and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
      For you will render to a man
         according to his work.


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

   Chorus

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

   Chorus


My Beloved

My Beloved, bring me awake
Take me up to your resurrection place
My Beloved, bring me awake
'Cause I want to feel your light on my face

There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
(Repeat all above)

   I see the light, I see the light
   I see the light, I see the light
   Oh thank you God, I see the light

My Beloved, bring me away
Over Jordan and out of this place
My Beloved, for you I wait
With you here 'til forever face to face

There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul

   Chorus

No more sorrow, no more pain
No more darkness weighing down on me
No longer blind, now I can see
Forever light, forever free...

Forever light, forever light
Forever light, forever light
I see the light, I see the light
I see the light, I see the light
Oh, thank you, God, I see the light

I see the light, I see the light
I see the light, I see the light
Oh thank you God, oh thank you God
I see the light


All that I Want

Spirit, fall fresh on me
Spirit, fall fresh on me
Hear my cry, fill my life
I won't need anything but you

   I found all that I want, all that I longed for in you
   I found all that I want, all that I longed for in you

   Wasted time, is when I'm far from your truth
   I've found all that I want, all that I long for in you

Spirit, come be my joy
Spirit, come be my joy
Be my song, fill my lungs
I won't need anything but you

   Chorus (2x)

All that I want, all that I long for in you
I've found all that I want, all that I long for in you
I've found all that I want, all that I long for in you 
I've found all that I want, all that I long for is you
Yes, you're all that I want, all that I long for is you


The Promise of Pentecost
Pentecost Sunday, 2021

Acts 2:29-39
Steve Gilbertson

"Wait for the promise of the Father," Jesus told his disciples. Why should they 
wait? They'd seen the resurrected Jesus, and they'd been given his mandate to
make disciples of all nations. What more did they need? What they needed was
this: Power -- the power of the Holy Spirit to transform their hearts and energize
their lives. So, too, do we.

Acts 2:29-39

29 "Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both
died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 Being therefore a prophet,
and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his
descendants on his throne, 31 he foresaw and spoke about the resurrection of the Christ,
that he was not abandoned to Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. 32 This Jesus God
raised up, and of that we all are witnesses. 33 Being therefore exalted at the right hand
of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured
out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing. 34 For David did not ascend into the
heavens, but he himself says,

      "'The Lord said to my Lord,
      "Sit at my right hand,
 35       until I make your enemies your footstool."'

36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord
and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified."

37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of
the apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?" 38 And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized
every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and for your children and for
all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself." 40 And with many other
words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, "Save yourselves from this crooked
generation." 41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day
about three thousand souls.

42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of
bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being
done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common.
45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as
any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes,
they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the
people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
