MIGHTY Christ from time eternal,
 
mighty, He man’s nature takes,
 
mighty, when on Calv’ry dying,
 
mighty, death itself He breaks.
 
See His might,
 
infinite,
 
King of heaven and earth by right!

 
 
2 Mighty was He in heaven’s purpose,
 
mighty, in the pledge to save,
 
mighty, from His birth to Calv’ry,
 
mighty, bursting from the grave.
 
Still will He
 
mighty be
 
when things hidden now we see.

 
 
3 Great my Jesus in His Person,
 
great as God and man is He,
 
great His comeliness and beauty,
 
white and ruddy, fair to see.
 
Great that sight,
 
sovereign Might,
 
throned secure on heaven’s height!

Psalm 31:1-24


  • Hymn

 
O church, arise and put your armour on;
 
Hear the call of Christ our Captain.
 
For now the weak can say that they are strong
 
In the strength that God has given.
 
With shield of faith and belt of truth,
 
We’ll stand against the devil’s lies;
 
An army bold, whose battle-cry is Love,
 
Reaching out to those in darkness.

 
Our call to war, to love the captive soul
 
But to rage against the captor;
 
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole,
 
We will fight with faith and valour.
 
When faced with trials on every side
 
We know the outcome is secure,
 
And Christ will have the prize for which He died,
 
An inheritance of nations.

Come see the cross, where love and mercy meet,
 
As the Son of God is stricken;
 
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet,
 
For the Conqueror has risen!
 
And as the stone is rolled away,
 
And Christ emerges from the grave,
 
This victory march continues till the day
 
Every eye and heart shall see Him.
 
 

So Spirit, come, put strength in every stride,
 
Give grace for every hurdle,
 
That we may run with faith to win the prize
 
Of a servant good and faithful.
 
As saints of old still line the way,
 
Retelling triumphs of His grace,
 
We hear their calls, and hunger for the day
 
When with Christ we stand in glory.

Mark.14:32-42

 
And they went to a place called Gethsemane. And he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” And he took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly distressed and troubled. And he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death. Remain here and watch.” And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” And he came and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words. And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy, and they did not know what to answer him. And he came the third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? It is enough; the hour has come. The Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.”


  • Hymn

A MAN there is, a real man,
 
 
who once on Calvary died.
 
His blood for guilty sinners ran
 
from hands and feet and side.

 
 
2 This wondrous Man, of whom we tell,
 
is true Almighty God;
 
He bought our souls from death and hell;
 
the price, His own heart’s blood.

 
 
3 That human heart He still retains,
 
though throned in highest bliss;
 
and feels each tempted member’s pains;
 
for our affliction’s His.

 
 
4 Come then, repenting sinner, come;
 
approach with humble faith;
 
owe what you will, the total sum
 
is cancelled by His death!

 
 
5 His blood can cleanse the sin-stained soul,
 
and wash our guilt away;
 
He will present us sound and whole
 
in that tremendous day.



  • Prayer


  • Hymn

 
We will trust God’s Word alone,
Where his perfect will is known;
Our traditions shift like sand
While his Truth forever stands.

 
 
We will live by faith alone,
Clothed in merit not our own;
All we claim is Jesus Christ
And his finished sacrifice.

 
 
Chorus:
Glory be, glory be to God alone,
Through the church he redeemed and made his own.
He has freed us, he will keep us till we’re safely home
Glory be, glory be to God alone!

 
 
We are saved by grace alone—
Undeserved, yet freely shown;
No accomplishment on earth
Can achieve the second birth.

 
 
We will stand on Christ alone,
The unyielding Cornerstone;
Nations rage and devils roar,
Still he reigns forevermore!

Phil.2:19-30

 
I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, so that I too may be cheered by news of you. For I have no one like him, who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare. They all seek their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. But you know Timothy’s proven worth, how as a son with a father he has served with me in the gospel. I hope therefore to send him just as soon as I see how it will go with me, and I trust in the Lord that shortly I myself will come also. I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, and your messenger and minister to my need, for he has been longing for you all and has been distressed because you heard that he was ill. Indeed he was ill, near to death. But God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. I am the more eager to send him, therefore, that you may rejoice at seeing him again, and that I may be less anxious. So receive him in the Lord with all joy, and honour such men, for he nearly died for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was lacking in your service to me.


  • Chorus

When the road is rough and steep
Fix your eyes upon Jesus
He alone has power to keep
Fix your eyes upon him

Jesus is a gracious friend
One on whom you can depend
He is faithful to the end
Fix your eyes upon him.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


  • Sermon


  • Hymn

 
O Jesus, I have promised
to serve you to the end;
be now and ever near me,
my master and my friend:
I shall not fear the battle
if you are by my side,
nor wander from the pathway
if you will be my guide.

 
 
2. O let me feel you near me,
the world is ever near;
I see the sights that dazzle,
the tempting sounds I hear;
my foes are ever near me,
around me and within;
but Jesus, draw still nearer
and shield my soul from sin!

 
 
3. O let me hear you speaking
in accents clear and still;
above the storms of passion,
the murmurs of self-will:
O speak to reassure me,
to hasten or control;
and speak to make me listen,
O Guardian of my soul.

 
 
4. O Jesus, you have promised
to all who follow you,
that where you are in glory
your servant shall be too;
and, Jesus, I have promised
to serve you to the end;
O give me grace to follow
my master and my friend.

 
 
5. O let me see your footmarks
and in them place my own;
my hope to follow truly
is in your strength alone:
O guide me, call me, draw me,
uphold me to the end;
and then in heaven receive me,
my Saviour and my friend.



  • Grace.
