"True Humility" [Sermon Title]


Because You Are God’s Chosen Ones

G. Alan Smith

Because you are God's chosen ones,

Because you are kept in His care:

Clothe yourselves with mercy and kindness,

Humility, meekness and prayer.

Bear with one another, forgive one another,

Forgive as the Lord forgives you.

Over all these put on garments of love

Which will make your lives over anew.

Christ's peace must reign in you, Christ's word ordain in you;

Christ's love remain in your hearts.

Thanks be to God, and to Him give all praises;

Pledge all to Him, who to new life upraises.

By wisdom made perfect, instruct one another;

Sing hymns to the Lord from your hearts.

In all speech and action give thanks unto God,

Who to you all His blessings imparts.

Words adapted from Colossians 3:12-17 by Gary Alan Smith

"Servant Leadership" [Sermon Title]

O Master, Let Me Walk With Thee

arr. Terry Osman

O Master, let me walk with Thee
In lowly paths of service free;
Tell me Thy secret; help me bear
The strain of toil, the fret of care.

Help me the slow of heart to move
By some clear, winning word of love;
Teach me the wayward feet to stay,
And guide them in the homeward way.

Teach me Thy patience; still with Thee
In closer, dearer company,
In work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
In trust that triumphs over wrong.

Words: Washington Gladden (1836-1918) Tune: Maryton, Henry Percy Smith (1825-1898).

"Two Are Better than One" [Sermon title]


We Gather Together

arr. Jim Lucas

We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;
He chastens and hastens His will to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing;
Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine;
So from the beginning the struggle we were winning;
Thou, Lord, were at our side, all glory be Thine!

With voices united, our praises we offer,
To Thee in thanksgiving, glad anthems we raise.
Thy strong arm will guide us, for Thou art beside us,
To Father, Son, and Spirit, forever be praised!

"Being Off the Map" [Sermon Title]


Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory

Battle Hymn of the Republic; Author: Julia Ward Howe

Author Born: May 27, 1819, New York City. Died: October 17, 1910, Middletown, Rhode Island. Buried: Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Howe, Julia, née Ward, born in New York City in 1819, and married in 1843 the American philanthropist S. G. Howe. She has taken great interest in political matters and is well known through her prose and poetical works. Her Battle Hymn of the Republic, "eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord," was written in 1861 at the outbreak of the Civil War and was called forth by the sight of troops for the seat of war, and published in her Later Lyrics, 1806, p. 41. []

1 Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;

he is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;

he hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword;

his truth is marching on.

Refrain: Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

His truth is marching on.

2 I have seen him in the watchfires of a hundred circling camps,

they have builded him an altar in the evening dews and damps;

I can read his righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;

his day is marching on. [Refrain]

3 He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;

he is sifting out the hearts of all before his judgment seat.

O be swift, my soul, to answer him; be jubilant, my feet!

Our God is marching on. [Refrain]

4 In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,

with a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me;

as he died to make us holy, let us die to make all free,

while God is marching on. [Refrain]
