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 110

1   The Lord says to my Lord:
        "Sit at my right hand,
     until I make your enemies your footstool."

2   The Lord sends forth from Zion
        your mighty scepter.
     Rule in the midst of your enemies!
3   Your people will offer themselves freely
       on the day of your power,
        in holy garments;
     from the womb of the morning,
        the dew of your youth will be yours.
4   The Lord has sworn
       and will not change his mind,

     "You are a priest forever
        after the order of Melchizedek."

5   The Lord is at your right hand;
       he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.
6   He will execute judgment among the nations,
       filling them with corpses;
     he will shatter chiefs
        over the wide earth.
7   He will drink from the brook by the way;
       therefore he will lift up his head.


Angels We Have Heard on High 

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains

   Gloria in excelsis Deo
   Gloria in excelsis Deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee
Why your joyful strains prolong
Say what may the tidings be
Which inspire your heav'nly song

   Gloria in excelsis Deo
   Gloria in excelsis Deo

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the newborn King 

   Gloria in excelsis Deo
   Gloria in excelsis Deo


Angels from the Realms of Glory

Angels from the realms of glory
Wing your flight o'er all the earth
Ye who sang creation's story
Now proclaim Messiah's birth

   Come and worship, come and worship
   Worship Christ, the newborn King

Shepherds in the fields abiding
Watching o'er your flocks by night
God with man is now residing
Yonder shines the infant light

   Chorus

Sages leave your contemplations
Brighter visions beam afar
Seek the great Desire of nations
You have seen his natal star

   Chorus

All creation join in praising
God the Father, Spirit, Son
Evermore your voices raising
To th'Eternal Three in One

   Chorus


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


Whose Son is Jesus?
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Matthew 22:41-46
Steve Gilbertson

During this Advent season of preparation for Jesus' coming, we've been listening in as Jesus
responds to religious leaders who seek to trap him in political, theological and moral
questions. In each case, Jesus gives answers they cannot question. Now, in return, he asks
them a question they cannot (or will not) answer. The irony is not lost for them, or for us:
we come to Jesus with our questions, but ultimately, it is we who must answer the ultimate
question: Whose Son is Jesus?

Matthew 22:41-46

41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, 42 saying, "What
do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?" They said to him, "The son of David." 43 He said to
them, "How is it then that David, in the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying,

44        "'The Lord said to my Lord,
           "Sit at my right hand,
              until I put your enemies under your feet"'?

45 If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?" 46 And no one was able to answer him a word, nor
from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.
