  • Hymn

All people that on earth do dwell
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice
Him serve with mirth, His praise forth tell
Come ye before Him and rejoice

Know that the Lord is God indeed
Without our aid He did us make
We are His flock, He doth us feed
And for His sheep He doth us take

O enter then His gates with praise
Approach with joy His courts unto
Praise, laud, and bless His name always
For it is seemly so to do

Because the Lord our God is good
His mercy is forever sure
His truth at all times firmly stood
And shall from age to age endure

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly host
 Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Deuteronomy 10:12-22

“And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments and statutes of the LORD, which I am commanding you today for your good? Behold, to the LORD your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth with all that is in it. Yet the LORD set his heart in love on your fathers and chose their offspring after them, you above all peoples, as you are this day. Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no longer stubborn. For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Love the sojourner, therefore, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt. You shall fear the LORD your God. You shall serve him and hold fast to him, and by his name you shall swear. He is your praise. He is your God, who has done for you these great and terrifying things that your eyes have seen. Your fathers went down to Egypt seventy persons, and now the LORD your God has made you as numerous as the stars of heaven."

  • Hymn

REJOICE, the Lord is King!
Your Lord and King adore;
mortals, give thanks and sing
and triumph evermore:

                         Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
                         Rejoice, again I say, Rejoice.

2 Jesus the Saviour reigns,
the God of truth and love:
when He had purged our stains,
He took His seat above:

3 His kingdom cannot fail;
He rules o’er earth and heaven;
the keys of death and hell
are to our Jesus given:

4 He sits at God’s right hand
till all His foes submit,
and bow to His command,
and fall beneath His feet:

5 Rejoice in glorious hope;
Jesus the Judge shall come,
and take His servants up
to their eternal home:

We soon shall hear the archangel’s voice;
the trump of God shall sound, Rejoice!

Philippians 3:1-11

Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you.

 Look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh. For we are the real circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh—though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh – also. If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness, under the law blameless. But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith — that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

  • Hymn

JESUS, Jesus, all-sufficient,
beyond telling is Thy worth;
in Thy Name lie greater treasures
than the richest found on earth.
Such abundance
is my portion with my God.

2 In Thy gracious face there’s beauty
far surpassing every thing
found in all the earth’s great wonders
mortal eye hath ever seen.
Rose of Sharon,
Thou Thyself art heaven’s delight.

  • Prayer

  • Hymn

REJOICE, believer, in the Lord,
who makes your cause His own!
The hope that’s built upon His Word
can ne’er be overthrown.

2 Though many foes beset your road,
and feeble is your arm,
your life is hid with Christ in God,
beyond the reach of harm.

3 Weak as you are, you shall not faint,
or fainting, shall not die;
Jesus, the strength of every saint,
will aid you from on high.

4 As surely as He overcame
and triumphed once for you,
so surely you that love His name
shall triumph in Him too.

  • Sermon

  • Hymn

TO God be the glory! great things He has done!
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son;
who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
and opened the life-gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord! praise the Lord! Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord! praise the Lord! Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son:
and give Him the glory! great things He has done!

2 O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood!
To every believer the promise of God;
the vilest offender who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

3 Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
and great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
but purer and higher and greater will be
our wonder, our rapture, when Jesus we see!

  • Grace.
