   Sent with Hope – ecclesia!


Psalm 97

1   The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;
        let the many coastlands be glad!
2   Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
       righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3   Fire goes before him
       and burns up his adversaries all around.
4   His lightnings light up the world;
       the earth sees and trembles.

5   The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
       before the Lord of all the earth.

6   The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
        and all the peoples see his glory.
7   All worshipers of images are put to shame,
        who make their boast in worthless idols;
        worship him, all you gods!

8   Zion hears and is glad,
        and the daughters of Judah rejoice,

        because of your judgements, O Lord.
9   For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;
        you are exalted far above all gods.

10  O you who love the Lord, hate evil!
        He preserves the lives of his saints;
        he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11  Light is sown for the righteous,
        and joy for the upright in heart.
12  Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
        and give thanks to his holy name!


Ain't No Grave (Can Hold My Body Down)

   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 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


I Can't Even Walk

I thought number one would surely be me
I thought I could be what I wanted to be
I thought I could build on life's sinking sand
But now I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   The mountains too high and the valleys too wide
   Down on my knees that's where I learned to stand

   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

I thought I could do a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty big man
But Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Chorus

I think I'll make Jesus my all and all
And if I'm in trouble on his name I'll call
If I didn't trust him, I'd be less of a man
'Cause Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Chorus

Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand


Abide with Me

I have a home, eternal home
But for now I walk this broken world
You walked it first, you know our pain
But you show hope can rise again up from the grave

   Abide with me, abide with me
   Don't let me fall, and don't let go
   Walk with me and never leave
   *Ever close, God abide with me
      (repeat last time)

There in the night, Gethsemane
Before the cross, before the nails
Overwhelmed, alone you prayed
You met us in our suffering and bore our shame

   Chorus

Oh love that will not ever let me go
Love that will not ever let me go
You never let me go
Love that will not ever let me go

And up ahead, eternity
We'll weep no more and sing for joy
Abide with me
We'll weep no more and sing for joy
Abide with me

   Chorus


Unity, Liberty, Charity
John 1:1-18
ecclesia examen (4)
Steve Gilbertson

John 1:1-18

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without
him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the 
light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to
bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light,
but came to bear witness about the light.

9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was
in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.
11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who did
receive him, who is believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but
of God.

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory
as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 (John bore witness about
him, and cried out, "This was he of whom I said, 'He who comes after me ranks before
me, because he was before me.'") 16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace
upon grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus
Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made
him known.
