   Sent with Hope – ecclesia!

Psalm 122

1   I was glad when they said to me,
        "Let us go to the house of the Lord!"
2   Our feet have been standing
        within your gates, O Jerusalem!

3   Jerusalem - built as a city
       that is bound firmly together,
4   to which the tribes go up,
       the tribes of the Lord,

    as was decreed for Israel,
       to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5   There thrones for judgment were set,
       the thrones of the house of David.

6   Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
        "May they be secure who love you!
7   Peace be within your walls
        and security within your towers!"
8   For my brothers and companions' sake
        I will say, "Peace be within you!"
9   For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
        I will seek your good.

From This Valley

Oh, the desert dreams of a river
That will run down to the sea
Like my heart longs for an ocean
To wash down over me

   Oh, won't you take me from this valley
   To that mountain high above
   I will pray, pray, pray
   Until I see your smiling face
   I will pray, pray, pray 
   To the one I love

Oh, the outcast dreams of acceptance
Just to find pure love's embrace
Like an orphan longs for his mother
May you hold me in your grace


Ooh - Oh, Oh, Oh
Oh, Oh, Oh - Oh, Oh, Oh (2x)

Oh, the caged bird dreams of a strong wind
That will flow 'neath her wings
Like a voice longs for a melody
Oh, Jesus carry me


I will pray, pray, pray
Until I see your smiling face
I will pray, pray, pray 
To the one I love

Raise a Hallelujah

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me

   I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
   Louder and louder you're gonna hear my praises roar
   Up from the ashes, hope will arise
   Death is defeated, the King is alive

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me


Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
Sing a little louder!



Here we are, here we are
The broken and used, mistreated, abused
Here we are
Here you are, here you are
The beautiful one who came like a Son
Here you are

So we lift up our voices, we open our hands
To cling to the love that we can't comprehend
Oh, lift up your voices and lift up your heads
To sing of the love that has freed us from sin

   He is the one who has saved us
   He is the one who *embraced us (*2nd time forgave)
   He is the one who has come and is coming again
   He's the remedy

Here we are, here we are
Bandaged and bruised, awaiting a cure
Here we are
Here you are, here you are
Our beautiful King, bringing relief
Here you are with us

So we lift up our voies and open our hands
Let go of the things that have kept us from him


Oh, I can't comprehend, I can't take it all in
Never understand such perfect love
Come for the broken and beat, for the wounded and weak
Oh, come fall at his feet
He's the remedy, he's the remedy


The Passover Meal
Matthew 26:17-29
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Steve Gilbertson

We call it by various names: Communion, Lord's Supper, Eucharist. But its roots go
much deeper than that. When Jesus celebrated his Last Supper with his disciples,
they did so on one of the most holy days fo the Jewish year, in a meal devout Jews
have celebrated for 3500 years: Passover. Jesus interpreted his impending death in
light of that ancient story. Let us see how Jesus placed himself in the middle of that
story, and what it means for us today.

Matthew 26:17-29 (ESV)

17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Where
will you have us prepare for you to eat the Passover?" 18 He said, "Go into the city to a
certain man and say to him, 'The Teacher says, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at
your house with my disciples.'" 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they
prepared the Passover. 20 When it was evening, he reclined at table with the twelve. 21 And
as they were eating, he said, "Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me." 22 And they were
very sorrowful and began to say to him one after another, "Is it I, Lord?" 23 He answered, "He
who has dipped his hand in the dish with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man goes as it is
written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been
better for that man if he had not been born." 25 Judas, who would betray him, answered, "Is it
I, Rabbi?" He said to him, "You have said so."

26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the
disciples, and said, "Take, eat; this is my body." 27 And he took a cup, and when he had given
thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant,
which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this
fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom."
