Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

 

              Come Thou Fount of every blessing

              Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;

              Streams of mercy, never ceasing

              Call for songs of loudest praise

              Teach me some melodious sonnet,

              Sung by flaming tongues above.

              Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,

              Mount of God’s unchanging love.

 

              Here I raise my Ebenezer;

              Hither by Thy help I’m come;

              And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,

              Safely to arrive at home.

              Jesus sought me when a stranger,

              Wandering from the fold of God;

              He, to rescue me from danger,

              Interposed His precious blood.

 

              O to grace how great a debtor

              Daily I’m constrained to be!

              Let that grace now like a fetter,

              Bind my wandering heart to Thee.

              Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,

              Prone to leave the God I love;

              Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,

              Seal it for Thy courts above.

              Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,

              Seal it for Thy courts above.

Affirmation of Faith

(The Apostles’ Creed)

 

P:         I believe in God, the Father almighty,

              creator of heaven and earth.

              I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

              who was conceived by the Holy Spirit

              and born of the virgin Mary.

              He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

              was crucified, died, and was buried;

              he descended into hell.

              The third day he rose again from the dead.

              He ascended to heaven

              and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.

              From there he will come 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,

              and the resurrection of the body,

              and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

 

Scripture Reading

(Psalm 8)

 

              O Lord, our Lord,

              how majestic is your name in all the earth!

              You have set your glory above the heavens.

              Out of the mouth of babies and infants,

              you have established strength because of your foes,

              to still the enemy and the avenger.

              When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,

              the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

              what is man that you are mindful of him,

              and the son of man that you care for him?

              Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings

              and crowned him with glory and honor.

              You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;

              you have put all things under his feet,

              all sheep and oxen,

              and also the beasts of the field,

              the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,

              whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

              O Lord, our Lord,

              how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You Loved Me

 

              I thought you would’t love me if I didn’t do everything right

              So I lied to tell the truth and hid myself most of all from you

              Good was never perfect, perfect never could be good enough for me

 

                            But I tried and I failed

                            And you loved me

                            Oh, I tried and I failed

                            And you loved me

 

              I had all the answers; that was easier than facing the dark

              And I sold my story until the story started falling apart

              Ever secret spoken, out there in the open I’ve pretended not to see

 

                            And I’ve tried and I failed

                            And you loved me

                            And I tried and I failed

                            And you loved me

 

              I may never understand

              Why I walked so far away

              I may never understand

              What it is that makes you stay

 

                            When I try, when I fail

                            And you love me

                            When I try and I fail

                            And you love me

                            And I try and I fail

                            And you love me

                            And I try and I fail

                            And you love me

Scripture Reading           

Mark 12:41-44; 14:3-9 (ESV)

 

41 “And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. 42 And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. 43 And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. 44 For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”

 

3 And while he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he was reclining at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head. 4 There were some who said to themselves indignantly, “Why was the ointment wasted like that? 5 For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii[b] and given to the poor.” And they scolded her. 6 But Jesus said, “Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 7 For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you want, you can do good for them. But you will not always have me. 8 She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burial. 9 And truly, I say to you, wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her.”

 

 

 

Scripture Meditation                         

“Radical Generosity: Money”

Rev. Patrick Donohue

 

 

Confession of Sin

(from the Worship Sourcebook)

                

L:         God of everlasting love,

              we confess that we have been unfaithful

              to our covenant with you and with one another.

              We have worshiped other gods:

              money, power, greed, and convenience.

              We have served our own self-interest

              instead of serving only you and your people.

              We have not loved our neighbor as you have commanded,

              nor have we rightly loved ourselves.

 

P:        Forgive us, gracious God,

              and bring us back to fullness

              of our covenant with you and with one another.

              Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

 

Assurance of Grace          

(from Isaiah 44:21-22)

 

L:         Remember these things, O Jacob,

              and Israel, for you are my servant;

              I formed you, you are my servant;

              O Israel, you will not be forgotten by me.

              I have swept away your transgressions like a cloud,

              and your sins like mist;

              return to me, for I have redeemed you.

                            Every hour I need You

              Teach my song to rise to You

              When temptation comes my way

              And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You

              Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

 

                            Lord, I need You, oh, I need You

                            Every hour I need You

                            My one defense, my righteousness

                            Oh God, how I need You

                            Lord, I need You, oh, I need You

                            Every hour I need You
