Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee KJ 3

Joyful, joyful, we adore thee, God of glory, Lord of love;

hearts unfold like flowers before thee, opening to the sun above.

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away.

Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!


All thy works with joy surround thee, earth and heaven

reflect thy rays, stars and angels sing around thee,

center of unbroken praise. Field and forest, vale and mountain,

flowery meadow, flashing sea, chanting bird and flowing fountain,

call us to rejoice in thee.

L1. Prayer of Confession - Pengakuan Dosa

With faith and hope, let us confess our sin…………….

God, we come before You confessing our sins. We confess those little things we don’t even call sin—our gossip, our selfishness, our apathy, our self-sufficiency. We confess that we spend more time filling our minds and hearts with television, the internet, relationships…everything but You.

      Forgive us, O God, we pray, and direct our paths toward righteousness. We pray in Christ’s name,  

      Amen

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me....

I once was lost but now am found,

Was blind, but now I see


Through many dangers, toils and snares...

we have already come.

‘Tis grace that brought us safe thus far...

And grace will lead us home.


The Lord has promised good to me...

His word my hope secures.

He will my shield and portion be...

As long as life endures.


P. Declaration of Forgiveness - Pemberitaan Pengampunan

God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. Since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven.

      Thanks be to God!


P. Peace - Damai

Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another.

The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

And also with you. Amen

Together with all believers through the ages, let us confess our faith according to ‘The Apostle Creed’ saying:

      I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth

      I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

      I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

† SENDING OUT INTO THE WORLD


P. Closing Song - Nyanyian Penutup


The Old Rugged Cross

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,

The emblem of suff’ring and shame;

And I love that old cross where the dearest and best

For a world of lost sinners was slain.


Ref.: So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,

Till my trophies at last I lay down;

I will cling to the old rugged cross,

And exchange it some day for a crown.


In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,

A wondrous beauty I see,

For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,

To pardon and sanctify me. Ref.:


P.   Charge and Blessing - Pengutusan dan Berkat

On this Sunday, LORD our God, Father, Son, and Spirit, has cleansed you and taught you.

We will leave from your holy house to live the loving law.


The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
