Psalm 108

1   My heart is steadfast, O God!
        I will sing and make melody with all my being!
2   Awake, O harp and lyre!
        I will awake the dawn!
3   I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
       I will sing praises to you among the nations.
4   For your steadfast love is great above the heavens;
       your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

5   Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
       Let your glory be over all the earth!
6   That your beloved ones may be delivered,
        give salvation by your right hand and answer me!

7   God has promised in his holiness:
        "With exultation I will divide up Shechem
        and portion out the Valley of Succoth.
8   Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
        Ephraim is my helmet,
        Judah my scepter.
9   Moab is my washbasin;
        upon Edom I cast my shoe;
        over Philistia I shout in triumph."

10  Who will bring me to the fortified city?
        Who will lead me to Edom?
11  Have you not rejected us, O God?
        You do not go out, O God, with our armies.
12  Oh grant us help against the foe,
        for vain is the salvation of man!
13  With God we shall do valiantly;
        it is he who will tread down our foes.


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


All the People Said Amen

You are not alone, if you are lonely
When you feel afraid, you're not the only
We are all the same, in need of mercy
To be forgiven and be free 
It's all you got to lean on 
But thank God it's all you need

   And all the people said Amen
   And all the people said Amen
   Give thanks to the Lord for his love never ends
   And all the people said Amen


If you think you're poor, well it don't matter
Weak or strong, we know love is what we're after
We're all broken but we're all in this together
God knows we stumble and fall
And he so loved the world he sent his Son to save us all

   Chorus

Blessed are the poor in spirit who are torn apart
Blessed are the persecuted and the pure in heart
Blessed are the people hungry for another start
For theirs is the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God

   Chorus (2x)


I Will Follow

When the sea is calm and all is right
When I feel your favor flood my life
Even in the good, I'll follow you
Even in the good, I'll follow you
When the boat is tossed upon the waves
When I wonder if you'll keep me safe
Even in the storms, I'll follow you
Even in the storms, I'll follow you

   I believe everything that you say you are
   I believe that I have seen your unchanging heart
   In the good things and in the hardest part
   I believe and I will follow you
   I believe and I will follow you


When I see the wicked prospering
When I feel I have no voice to sing
Even in the want, I'll follow you
Even in the want, I'll follow you

   Chorus

When I find myself so far from home
And you lead me somewhere I don't wanna go
Even in my death, I'll follow you
Even in my death, I'll follow you
When I come to end this race I've run
And I receive the prize that Christ has won
I will be with you in paradise
I will be with you in paradise

   Chorus (2x)


Jesus Appears to Restore the Fallen
John 21:15-25
Eastertide
Steve Gilbertson

John 21

Peter and Jesus had unfinished business. Sure, Jesus was raised to new life. Peter had
seen that for himself. But given how he had failed Jesus, where did Peter now fit in 
his plans? Had he fallen so far that there was no future for him? In this final, poignant
episode, we see something of vital importance, not just for Peter, but for all of us as
well: Jesus appears to restore the fallen.

21 After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias, and he
revealed himself in this way. 2 Simon Peter, Thomas (called the Twin), Nathanael of Cana
in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together. 3 Simon
Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We will go with you." They went
out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

4 Just as day was breaking, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it
was Jesus. 5 Jesus said to them, "Children, do you have any fish?" They answered him, "No."
6 He said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some." So they
cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. 7 That disciple
whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was
the Lord, he put on his outer garment, for he was stripped for work, and threw himself into the
sea. 8 The other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far
from the land, but about a hundred yards off.

9 When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire in place, with fish laid out on it, and bread.
10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish that you have just caught." 11 So Simon Peter went
aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, 153 of them. And although there were so many,
the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." Now none of the disciples
dared ask him, "Who are you?" They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread and
gave it to them, and so with the fish. 14 This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the
disciples after he was raised from the dead.

15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me
more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my
lambs." 16 He said to him a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes,
Lord; you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep." 17 He said to him the third time,
"Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, "Do you
love me?" and he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him,
"Feed my sheep. 18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk
wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you
and carry you where you do not want to go." 19 (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to
glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, "Follow me."

20 Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them, the one who also had leaned
back against him during the supper and had said, "Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?" 21 When
Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, "Lord, what about this man?" 22 Jesus said to him, "If it is my will that
he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!" 23 So the saying spread abroad among the
brothers that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, "If it 
is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?"

24 This is the disciple who is bearing witness about these things, and who has written these things, and
we know that his testimony is true.

25 Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose
that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.
