Sunday 5th December 2021
 

10.30am Service

St Jozef's Church, Moorsel

Welcome: Nathan Gregory

Please say the words in bold

Opening prayer

We are here to praise you
We are here to hear your Holy Word
We are here to say ‘thank you’
and to say ‘sorry’
We are here to ask for Your help
We are here because You love us and we love You, Lord Jesus.
Amen

Song

Come people of the Risen King

Who delight to bring Him praise

Come all and tune your hearts to sing

To the Morning Star of grace

From the shifting shadows of the earth

We will lift our eyes to Him

Where steady arms of mercy reach

To gather children in

 

Rejoice rejoice let ev'ry tongue rejoice

One heart one voice

O Church of Christ rejoice

 

Come those whose joy is morning sun

And those weeping through the night

Come those who tell of battles won

And those struggling in the fight

For His perfect love will never change

And His mercies never cease

But follow us through all our days

With the certain hope of peace

 

Come young and old from ev'ry land

Men and women of the faith

Come those with full or empty hands

Find the riches of His grace

Over all the world His people sing

Shore to shore we hear them call

The truth that cries through ev'ry age

Our God is all in all

Confession 

For the times we are selfish and only think of ourselves,  

we really want to say…..sorry Lord. 

 

For the times when we are proud and think that we’re better than others, 

we really want to say…..sorry Lord

 

For the times we get cross and impatient with our friends and family, 

we really want to say…..sorry Lord. 

 

For the times we are jealous and not happy with the things we have,  

we really want to say…..sorry Lord

 

For the times we lie to impress others or get out of trouble, 

we really want to say…..sorry Lord

 

Lord, wash us clean of all these wrong thoughts and feelings that spoil our lives.  Help us to be clean on the inside so that our hearts and minds are pleasing to you.  Amen 

 

Advent wreath

People of God: be glad!

Your God delights in you,

giving you joy for sadness

and turning the dark to light.

Be strong in hope therefore;

for your God comes to save.

You are God’s children.

Lord, make us one in the love of Christ

today and for ever.

Amen.

 

Song

Light of the world

You stepped down into darkness

Opened my eyes let me see

Beauty that made

This heart adore You

Hope of a life spent with You

 

So here I am to worship

Here I am to bow down

Here I am to say that You're my God

And You're altogether lovely

Altogether worthy

Altogether wonderful to me

 

King of all days

Oh so highly exalted

Glorious in heaven above

Humbly You came

To the earth You created

All for love's sake became poor

 

And I'll never know how much it cost

To see my sin upon that cross

And I'll never know how much it cost

To see my sin upon that cross

Song

The Lord is my shepherd

He restores my soul

He leads me by still waters

He restores my soul

 

Surely Your goodness and mercy

Are chasing after me

All of the days of my life

 

Even when I'm lost in the deepest valley

I’ll fear no evil

Even when the silence falls around me

I know You hear me

Even when it feels like we're separated

You're holding onto me

 

You lift my head You wipe my tears

You restore my soul

You draw me into Your embrace

You restore my soul

 

Even when I'm lost in the deepest valley

You're holding onto me

Even when the silence falls around me

You're holding onto me

Even when it feels like we're separated

You're holding onto me

 

You restore my soul

You restore my soul

You restore my soul

You restore my soul

 

The Lord is my shepherd

He restores my soul

The Lord is my shepherd

He restores my soul

Talk

Song
Come set Your rule and reign

In our hearts again

Increase in us we pray

Unveil why we're made

Come set our hearts ablaze with hope

Like wildfire in our very souls

Holy Spirit come invade us now

We are Your church

We need Your pow'r in us

We seek Your kingdom first

We hunger and we thirst

Refuse to waste our lives

For You're our joy and prize

To see the captives' hearts released

The hurt the sick the poor at peace

We lay down our lives for heaven's cause

We are Your church

We pray revive this earth

 

Build Your kingdom here

Let the darkness fear

Show Your mighty hand

Heal our streets and land

Set Your church on fire

Win this nation back

Change the atmosphere

Build Your kingdom here we pray

 

Unleash Your kingdom's pow'r

Reaching the near and far

No force of hell can stop

Your beauty changing hearts

You made us for much more than this

Awake the kingdom seed in us

Fill us with the strength and love of Christ

We are Your church

We are the hope on earth
