Hope to feel something again 

 

VERSE 2:

And I could hold on 

I could hold on to who I am and never let You 

Change me from the inside 

And I could be safe, 

oh I could be safe here in Your arms 

and never leave home 

Never let these walls down 

 

CHORUS: 

But You have called me higher 

You have called me deeper 

And I’ll go where

You have called me higher 

You have called me deeper 

And I’ll go where You lead me Lord 

Where You lead me 

Where You lead me Lord

SCRIPTURE | Ephesians 4:1-6

I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.

CLOSING PRAYER | Lauren Dencker

 

MUSIC | How Great is Our God/Our God (Chris Tomlin)

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty

Let all the Earth rejoice

All the Earth rejoice

 

He wraps himself in light

And darkness tries to hide

And trembles at His voice

Trembles at His voice

 

CHORUS:

How great is our God, sing with me

How great is our God, and all will see

How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands

And time is in His hands

Beginning and the end

Beginning and the end

 

The Godhead Three in One

Father Spirit Son

The Lion and the Lamb

The Lion and the Lamb

 

CHORUS 2x

 

Our God is greater, our God is stronger

God You are higher than any other

Our God is Healer, awesome in power

Our God, Our God (4x)

 

CHORUS 2x

 

BLESSING

Go forth into the world 

with compassion and justice in your heart

Give voice to the silent and give strength to the weak

Hear one another, see one another, 

care for one another, and love one another. 

It’s all that easy and it’s all that hard. 

 

MUSIC | Hold Us Together (Matt Maher)

It don’t have a job 

It don’t pay your bills 

Won’t buy you a home in Beverly Hills 

 

Won’t fix your life 

In five easy steps 

Ain’t the law of the land 

or the government 

 

But it’s all you need 

 

CHORUS: 

And love will hold us together 

Make us a shelter to weather the storm 

And I’ll be my brother’s keeper 

So the whole world will know that we’re not alone 

 

It’s waiting for you 

Knocking at your door In the moment of truth 

When your heart hits the floor 

And you’re on your knees 

 

CHORUS 

 

This is the first day of the rest of your life 

This is the first day of the rest of your life 

‘Cause even in the dark 

you can still see the light 

It’s gonna be alright 

It’s gonna be alright 

 

CHORUS (2x)
