Psalm 79

1 O God, the nations have come into your inheritance;
        they have defiled your holy temple;
        they have laid Jerusalem in ruins.
2   They have given the bodies of your servants
        to the heavens for food,
        the flesh of your faithful to the beasts of the earth.
3   They have poured out their blood like water
       all around Jerusalem,
        and there was no one to bury them.
4   We have become a taunt to our neighbors,
       mocked and derided by those around us.

5   How long, O Lord? Will you be angry forever?
       Will your jealousy burn like fire?
6   Pour out your anger on the nations
       that do not know you,
     and on the kingdoms
       that do not call upon your name!
7   For they have devoured Jacob
       and laid waste his habitation.

8   Do not remember against us our former iniquities;
       let your compassion come speedily to meet us,
        for we are brought very low.
9   Help us, O God of our salvation,
       for the glory of your name;
    deliver us, and atone for our sins,
       for your name's sake!
10  Why should the nations say,
       "Where is their God?"
     Let the avenging of the outpoured blood of your servants
         be known among the nations before our eyes!

11  Let the groans of the prisoners come before you;
         according to your great power, preserve those
     doomed to die!
12  Return sevenfold into the lap of our neighbors
         the taunts with which they have taunted you, O Lord!
13  But we your people, the sheep of your pasture,
         will give thanks to you forever;
         from generation to generation we will recount your praise.


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


Ain't No Grave

   There ain't no grave can hold my body down
   There ain't no grave can hold my body down
   When I hear that trumpet sound
   I'm gonna rise right out of the ground
   Ain't no grave can hold my body down

Well, look down yonder, Gabriel
Put your feet on the land and sea
But Gabriel, don't you blow your trumpet 'til you hear it from me
Well, look way down the river
What do you think I see
I see a band of angels, and they're coming after me

   Chorus

Well, meet me, Jesus, meet me
Meet me in the air
And if these wings don't fail me
I will meet you anywhere
I'm going down to the river of Jordan
Bury my knees beneath the sand
Gonna holler high hosanna 'til I see that promised land

   Chorus

Well, look way down the river
What do you think I see
I see a band of angels, and they're coming after me

   Chorus


His Mercy is More

 

What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all-knowing, he counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins, they are many, his mercy is more

   Praise the Lord!
   His mercy is more
   Stronger than darkness, new every morn
   Our sins, they are many, his mercy is more

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father, so tender, is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins, they are many, his mercy is more

   Chorus

What riches of kindness he lavished on us
His blood was the payment, his life was the cost
We stood 'neath the debt we could never afford
Our sins, they are many, his mercy is more

   Chorus (3x)


True Greatness
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Matthew 20:17-28
Steve Gilbertson

As Jesus makes his way toward Jerusalem, he is patiently teaching his disciples the
kind of kingdom community he expects them to become. It is, as we have seen, a
community of humility, accountability, forgiveness, faithfulness, and gratitude.
He saves the most difficult lesson for last...

Matthew 20:17-28

17 And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on
the way he said to them, 18 "See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will
be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death.
19 and deliver him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will
be raised on the third day."

20 Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came up to him with her son, and kneeling before
him she asked him for something. 21 And he said to her, "What do you want? She said to him,
"Say that these two sons of mine are to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your
kingdom." 22 Jesus answered, "You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the
cup that I am to drink?" They said to him, "We are able." 23 He said to them, "You will drink my
cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom
it has been prepared by my Father." 24 And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two
brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to him and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord
it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 26 It shall not be so among you.
But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever would be first among
you must be your slave, 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give
his life as a ransom for many."

29 And as they went out of Jericho, a great crowd followed him. 30 And behold, there were two blind
men sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, "Lord,
have mercy on us, Son of David!" 31 The crowd rebuked them, telling them to be silent, but they
cried out all the more, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" 32 And stopping, Jesus called them
and said, "What do you want me to do for you?" 33 They said to him, "Lord, let our eyes be opened."
34 And Jesus in pity touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight and followed him.
