Psalm 88

1   O Lord, God of my salvation,
        I cry out day and night before you.
2   Let my prayer come before you;
       incline your ear to my cry!

3   For my soul is full of troubles,
       and my life draws near to Sheol.
4   I am counted among those who go down to the pit;
       I am a man who has no strength,

5   like one set loose among the dead,
       like the slain that lie in the grave,
    like those whom you remember no more,
        for they are cut off from your hand.
6   You have put me in the depths of the pit,
       in the regions dark and deep.
7   Your wrath lies heavy upon me,
       and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah

8   You have caused my companions to shun me;
       you have made me a horror to them.
    I am shut in so that I cannot escape;
9       my eye grows dim through sorrow.
    Every day I call upon you, O Lord;
       I spread out my hands to you.
10  Do you work wonders for the dead?
       Do the departed rise up to praise you? Selah
11  Is your steadfast love declared in the grave,
       or your faithfulness in Abaddon?
12  Are your wonders known in the darkness,
       or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13  But I, O Lord, cry to you;

       in the morning my prayer comes before you.
14  O Lord, why do you cast my soul away?
       Why do you hide your face from me?
15  Afflicted and close to death from my youth up,
       I suffer your terrors; I am helpless.
16  Your wrath has swept over me;
       your dreadful assaults destroy me.
17  They surround me like a flood all day long;
       they close in on me together.
18  You have caused my beloved and my friend to shun me;
       my companions have become darkness.


O Come, All Ye Faithful

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold him, born the King of angels

   O come, let us adore him
   O come, let us adore him
   O come, let us adore him
   Christ the Lord!

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above
"Glory to God, all glory in the highest!"

   Chorus

Yea, Lord we greet Thee, born that happy morning
Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv'n
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing 

   Chorus


God So Loved the World

Come all you weary, come all you thirsty
Come to the well that never runs dry
Drink of the water, come and thirst no more

Come all you sinners, come find his mercy
Come to the table, he will satisfy
Taste of his goodness, find what you're looking for

   For God so loved the world that he gave us
   His one and only Son to save us
   Whoever believes in him will live forever

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions
Come lay them down at the foot of the cross
Jesus is waiting there with open arms (see his open arms)

   Chorus

   The power of hell forever defeated
   Now it is well, I'm walking in freedom
   For God so loved, God so loved the world

Praise God, priase God
From whom all blessings flow
Praise him, praise him
For the wonders of his love
(repeat)

For God so loved the world that he gave us
His one and only Son to save

   Chorus

   The power of hell forever defeated
   Now it is well, I'm walking in freedom
   For God so loved, God so loved the world

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions
Com lay them down at the foot of the cross
Jesus is waiting
God so loved the world


Light of the World (Sing Hallelujah)

Light of the World, Treasure of Heaven 
Brilliant like the stars in the wintery sky
Joy of the Father, reach through the darkness
Shine across the earth send the shadows to flight

Light of the World, from the beginning
The tragedies of time were no match for your love
From great heights of glory, you saw my story
God, you entered in and became one of us

   Sing hallelujah, sing hallelujah
   Sing hallelujah for the things he has done
   Come and adore him, bow down before him
   Sing hallelujah to the Light of the World

Light of the World, crown in a manger
Born for the cross to suffer, to save
High King of Heaven, death is the poorer
We are the richer by the price that he paid

   Chorus

Light of the World soon will be coming
With fire in his eyes he will ransom his own
Through clouds he will lead us straight into glory
And there he shall reign forevermore, forevermore

   Chorus


The Great Commandment
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Matthew 22:34-40
Steve Gilbertson

"Which is the great commandment?" the religious lawyer asked. We're so familiar with
Jesus' response that we face the danger of missing its revolutionary implications and its
challenging call. As we continue our study of Matthew during this Advent season, let us
consider what Jesus' answer might mean for us today.

Matthew 22:34-40

34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together.
35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 "Teacher, which is the great
commandment in the Law?" 37 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your
heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 
39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments
depend all the Law and the Prophets."
