We Prepare to Worship God

Welcome and Announcements


The Prayer of Preparation

Lord Jesus Christ, who did set Your face steadfastly to go unto Jerusalem: Deliver us from the faithless mind that shrinks from the harder paths of dutiful life. Make us ready to meet all the counsels of Your will, who, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, world without end. Amen.


We Worship God

The Votum and Salutation                                                                 Psalm 124:8; I Corinthians 1:3


+ The Call to Worship                                                                                        Psalm 118:27a, 28-29


+ The Praise Hymn                                                                         235 “All Glory, Laud, and Honor”

All glory, laud, and honor

To thee, Redeemer, King,

To whom the lips of children

Made sweet hosannas ring!

Thou art the King of Israel,

Thou David's royal Son,

Who in the Lord's name comest,

The King and blessed One!


The people of the Hebrews

With palms before thee went;

Our praise and prayer and anthems

Before thee we present:

To thee, before thy passion,

They sang their hymns of praise;

To thee, now high exalted,

Our melody we raise.


Thou didst accept their praises;

Accept the prayers we bring,

Who in all good delightest,

Thou good and gracious King!

All glory, laud, and honor

To thee, Redeemer, King,

To whom the lips of children

Made sweet hosannas ring!


+ The Prayer of Praise, Invocation, and Confession

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.


+ The Assurance of Pardon                                                                               Isaiah 53:4,5, 10, 11


+ The Thanksgiving Hymn                                                             242 “Not All the Blood of Beasts”

Not all the blood of beasts

On Jewish altars slain,

Could give the guilty conscience peace,

Or wash away the stain:


But Christ, the heavenly Lamb

Takes all our sins away,

A sacrifice of nobler name

And richer blood than they.


My faith would lay her hand

On that dear head of thine,

While like a penitent I stand,

And there confess my sin.


My soul looks back to see

The burdens thou didst bear,

When hanging on the cursed tree,

And knows her guilt was there.


Believing, we rejoice

To see the curse remove;

We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice,

And sing his bleeding love.


The Prayers of Petition and Intercession


+  The Doxology (Old Hundredth, L.M.)

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;

Praise him, all creatures here below;

Praise him above, ye heav’nly host:

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!

Hark! all the tribes Hosanna cry;

O Savior meek, pursue thy road

With palms and scattered garments strowed.


Ride on! ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die:

O Christ, thy triumphs now begin

O’er captive death and conquered sin.


Ride on! ride on in majesty!

The winged squadrons of the sky

Look down with sad and wondering eyes

To see th’approaching sacrifice.


Ride on! ride on in majesty!

Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;

The Father on his sapphire throne

Expects his own anointed Son.


Ride on! ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die:

Bow thy meek head to mortal pain,

Then take, O God, thy power and reign.


+ The Benediction

for He alone does wondrous works, in glory that excel.


And blessed be His glorious Name to all eternity;

The whole earth let His glory fill. Amen, so let it be.
