  • Hymn

 
IMMORTAL, invisible, God only wise,
in light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
most blessèd, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
almighty, victorious, Thy great Name we praise.

2 Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above,
Thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.

3 To all life Thou givest, to both great and small;
in all life Thou livest, the true life of all
we blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
and wither and perish – but nought changeth Thee.

4 Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
all praise we would render; O help us to see
’tis only the splendour of light hideth Thee.

5 Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
in light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
most blessèd, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
almighty, victorious, Thy great Name we praise.


  • OT Bible Reading

Genesis 1 :1-5

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

  • Hymn

GIVE to our God immortal praise;
mercy and truth are all His ways;
wonders of grace to God belong,
repeat His mercies in your song.

2 He built the earth, He spread the sky,
and fixed the starry lights on high:
wonders of grace to God belong,
repeat His mercies in your song.

3 He fills the sun with morning light,
He bids the moon direct the night:
His mercies ever shall endure,
when suns and moons shall shine no more.

4 He sent His Son with power to save
from guilt and darkness and the grave:
wonders of grace to God belong,
repeat His mercies in your song.

5 Through this vain world He guides our feet,
and leads us to His heavenly seat:
His mercies ever shall endure,
when this our world shall be no more.


  • NT Bible Reading

Colossians 1:15-20

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.


  • Hymn

SPEAK, Lord, in the stillness,
speak Your Word to me;
help me now to listen
in expectancy.

2 Speak, O gracious Master,
in this quiet hour;
let me see Your face, Lord,
feel Your touch of power.

3 For the words You give me,
they are life indeed;
living bread from heaven,
now my spirit feed.

4 Speak, Your servant listens –
I await Your Word;
let me know Your presence,
let Your voice be heard!

5 Fill me with the knowledge
of Your glorious will;
all Your own good pleasure
in my life fulfil.


  • Sermon


  • Hymn

'Jesus is Lord' – the cry that echoes through creation;
Resplendent power, eternal Word, our Rock.
The Son of God, the King whose glory fills the heavens,
Yet bids us come to taste this living Bread.

Jesus is Lord - whose voice sustains the stars and planets,
Yet in His wisdom laid aside His crown.
Jesus the Man, who washed our feet, who bore our suffering,
Became a curse to bring salvation's plan.

Jesus is Lord - the tomb is gloriously empty!
Not even death could crush this King of love!
The price is paid, the chains are loosed, and we're forgiven,
And we can run into the arms of God.

'Jesus is Lord' - a shout of joy, a cry of anguish,
As He returns, and every knee bows low.
Then every eye and every heart will see His glory,
The Judge of all will take His children home
