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 124

1   If it had not been the Lord who was on our side-
        let Israel now say-
2   if it had not been the Lord who was on our side
        when people rose up against us,
3   then they would have swallowed us up alive,
       when their anger was kindled against us;
4   then the flood would have swept us away,
       the torrent would have gone over us;

5   then over us would have gone
        the raging waters.

6   Blessed be the Lord,
        who has not given us
        as prey to their teeth!
7   We have escaped like a bird
        from the snare of the fowlers;
     the snare is broken,
        and we have escaped!

8   Our help is in the name of the Lord,
        who made heaven and earth.


Let My Life Be a Light

Let me live, blessed Lord, in the light of thy word
Let my life be a light on a hill
Leading souls now astray to the straight narrow way
Help me do some good deed while I live

   Let my life be a light shining out through the night
   May I help struggling ones to the fold
   Spreading cheer everywhere to the sad and the lone
   Let my life be a light to some soul


Give me wisdom and power, every day, every hour
Let me drink from the fountain above
And guide my footsteps aright through this dark and stormy night
Give me peace, give me joy, give me love

   Chorus

Give me souls for my hire, let my light be on fire
Shining out to the world as a guide
Help me rescue someone sinking now with no hope
That in Heaven we shall ever abide

   Chorus


Ain't No Grave

O my Lord, it's a winding road
It's all bent from a heavy load
Feel the weight beneath the ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

O my Lord, I can barely sing
Waiting for you and your reckoning
Angels humming, can you hear the sound
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

   I will rise, I will rise, I will rise, I will rise
   Troubles come for everyone
   Death has no respect for love
   Roll that stone I won't be found
   Ain't no grave gonna hold me down


Lord, I'm crooked from head to toe
Got dirty hands and a dirty soul
I was lost but now I'm found
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

   Chorus

Woah, Woah, Woah
Feel the weight beneath the ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

   Chorus

Woah, Woah, Woah
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down


Here is Love

Here is love vast as the ocean
Loving kindness as the flood
When the Prince of Life, our ransom
Shed for us his precious blood
Who his love will not remember
Who can cease to sing his praise
He will never be forgotten
Throughout Heaven's eternal days

On the mount of crucifixion
Fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God's mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide
Grace and love, like mighty rivers
Poured incesssant from above
Heaven's peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love

Grace and love, like mighty rivers
Poured incessant from above
Heaven's peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love
Heaven's peace and perfect justice 
Kissed a guilty world in love

The Lord's Prayer:
     Not as I Will, but as You Will

Matthew 26:30-46
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Steve Gilbertson

It may be the most poignant, profound, and personal scene in all of Scripture: Our
Lord Jesus' passionate prayer in the garden of Gethsemane. Last week we observed
the disciples and their failure in the garden. Today we focus on Jesus in this intimate
scene as he comes to terms with his painful mission, saying, "My Father, if it be
possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will."

Matthew 26:36-46 (ESV)

36 Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples,
"Sit here, while I go over there and pray." 37 And taking with him Peter and the two sons of
Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, "My soul is very
sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me." 39 And going a little farther he
fell on his face and prayed, saying, "My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me;
nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will." 40 And he came to the disciples and found them
sleeping. And he said to Peter, "So, could you not watch with me one hour? 41 Watch and pray
that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."
42 Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, "My Father, if this cannot pass unless
I drink it, your will be done." 43 And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were
heavy. 44 So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same
words again. 45 Then he came to the disciples and said to them, "Sleep and take your rest later
on. See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise,
let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand."
