HYMN Rejoice, the Lord is King

1. Rejoice, the Lord is King!

Your Lord and King adore;

Rejoice, give thanks, and sing,

And triumph evermore;

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

1. Jesus, the Saviour, reigns,

The God of truth and love;

When He had purged our stains

He took His seat above;

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

1. His kingdom cannot fail,

He rules o’er earth and Heav’n,

The keys of death and hell

Are to our Jesus giv’n;

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

1. Rejoice in glorious hope!

Jesus the Judge shall come,

And take His servants up

To their eternal home;

We soon shall hear th’ archangel’s voice;

The trump of God shall sound, rejoice!


Children’s Address – God always keeps His promises

Song How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer’s ear.

1. How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

In a believer’s ear!

It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,

And drives away his fear.

1. It makes the wounded spirit whole

And calms the troubled breast;

’Tis manna to the hungry soul,

And to the weary, rest.

1. Dear Name! the Rock on which I build,

My Shield and Hiding Place,

My never-failing Treas’ry filled

With boundless stores of grace!

1. Jesus! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,

My Prophet, Priest, and King;

My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,

Accept the praise I bring.

1. Weak is the effort of my heart,

And cold my warmest thought;

But when I see Thee as Thou art,

I’ll praise Thee as I ought.

1. Till then I would Thy love proclaim

With every fleeting breath,

And may the music of Thy name

Refresh my soul in death.

READING Proverbs 24: 23-34

23 These also are sayings of the wise:

To show partiality in judging is not good:

24 Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent,”

will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations.

25 But it will go well with those who convict the guilty,

and rich blessing will come on them.

26 An honest answer

is like a kiss on the lips.

27 Put your outdoor work in order

and get your fields ready;

after that, build your house.

28 Do not testify against your neighbor without cause—

would you use your lips to mislead?

29 Do not say, “I’ll do to them as they have done to me;

I’ll pay them back for what they did.”

30 I went past the field of a sluggard,

past the vineyard of someone who has no sense;

31 thorns had come up everywhere,

the ground was covered with weeds,

and the stone wall was in ruins.

32 I applied my heart to what I observed

and learned a lesson from what I saw:

33 A little sleep, a little slumber,

a little folding of the hands to rest—

34 and poverty will come on you like a thief

and scarcity like an armed man.


SING – Psalm 85: 8-13

8 I’ll hear what God the Lord will speak:

to his folk he’ll speak peace,

And to his saints; but let them not

return to foolishness.

9 To them that fear him surely near

is his salvatìon;

That glory in our land may have

her habitation.

10 Truth met with mercy, righteousness

and peace kiss’d mutually:

11 Truth springs from earth, and righteousness

looks down from heaven high.

12 Yea, what is good the Lord shall give;

our land shall yield increase:

13 Justìce, to set us in his steps,

shall go before his face.


Hymn Tell out my soul, the greatness of the Lord

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord!

Unnumbered blessings give my spirit voice;

tender to me the promise of his word;

in God my Saviour shall my heart rejoice.

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his Name!

Make known his might, the deeds his arm has done;

his mercy sure, from age to age to same;

his holy Name–the Lord, the Mighty One.

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his might!

Powers and dominions lay their glory by.

Proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight,

the hungry fed, the humble lifted high.

Tell out, my soul, the glories of his word!

Firm is his promise, and his mercy sure.

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord

to children’s children and for evermore!
