Songs of Praise and Worship

SHOUT HOSANNA

To the King of glory and light, all praises.
To the only giver of life, our Maker.
The gates are open wide, we worship You.

Come see what love has done, amazing.
He bought us with His blood, our Savior.
The cross has overcome, we worship You.

Shout, hosanna, Jesus He saves!
Shout, hosanna, He rose from the grave!
Come and lift Him up, hosanna.

Now let the lost be found, forgiven.
Death could not hold Him down, He’s risen.
So, let the saints cry out: We worship You,
We worship You.

The same power that rolled the stone away;
The same power alive in us today.
King Jesus, we call upon Your name, no other name.

Shout, hosanna, Jesus He saves!
Shout, hosanna, He rose from the grave!
Come and lift Him up, hosanna.

BEHOLD OUR GOD

Who has held the oceans in His hands?
Kings and nations tremble at His voice.
All creation rises to rejoice.

Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come, let us adore Him.
Behold our King, nothing can compare,
Come, let us adore Him.

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds?

Who has felt the nails upon His hands,
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave,
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign!

You will reign forever.
                         Let Your glory fill the earth
You will reign forever.
                         Let Your glory fill the earth
You will reign forever.
                         Let Your glory fill the earth
You will reign forever.
                         Let Your glory fill…

Behold our God, seated on His throne.
Come, let us adore Him.
Behold our King, nothing can compare,
Come, let us adore Him.

WORTHY OF IT ALL

All the saints and angels,
They bow before Your throne.
All the elders cast their crowns
Before the Lamb of God and sing.

You’re worthy of it all.
You’re worthy of it all.
For from You are all things,
And to You are all things,
You deserve the glory.

Day and night, night and day, let incense arise.
Day and night, night and day, let incense arise.
Day and night, night and day, let incense arise.
Day and night, night and day, let incense arise.

Song of Response

FOR THE CAUSE

For the cause of Christ the King
We give our lives, an offering,
‘Til all the earth resounds
With ceaseless praise
To the Son.

For the cause of Christ we go,
With joy to reap, with faith to sow,
As many see, And many put their trust
In the Son.

Christ we proclaim,
The Name above every name;
For all creation, ev’ry nation, God’s salvation,
Through the Son.

For the King, once lifted high,
To cries of rage, of “Crucify!”
Endured the cross as every sin was laid
On the Son.

To the King who conquered death,
To free the poor and the oppressed,
For lasting peace, for life and liberty
In the Son.

Christ we proclaim,
The Name above every name;
For all creation, ev’ry nation, God’s salvation,
Through the Son.

Let it be my life’s refrain;
To live is Christ to die is gain;
Deny myself, take up my cross,
And follow the Son.

August 22     Communion

Praying together

Friends with health concerns — Please continue in prayer for: Wendell Amstutz, Dick Bjerkaas, Chris Boyce, John Fitz, Darrel Moe, Jerry Nau, Jordan Padgett, Tim Robeck, Eemou See, Caryl Thorn, and Ray Wiens.

Praying Scripture for our church leaders — We are praying for Garth Pederson, Leadership Board member, using I Thessalonians 5:23
as a guide:  “Sanctify Garth through and through. Keep his whole spirit, soul, and body blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Praying for our missionaries — Rob and Tammy Mittuch (CRU, New Jersey. Note: Tammy is Ellen Swanson’s daughter.): Pray for the family as they continue their transition into new roles. Rob is now Executive Pastor at their local church and Tammy continues full-time in CRU’s Family Life Ministry, coaching and equipping other women to bring the Gospel to lost families in their communities in partnership with local churches. Pray for their children as they continue to adjust to Covid community and school restrictions. 

Giving together

Called to help others in need? Our benevolent fund assists mostly local people outside of Calvary with things like housing, food, utilities, medical, Rx, or transportation. Please consider giving to this fund above and beyond your regular giving. When you do, please note “Benevolent Fund” in the memo line on your check or select “Benevolent” from the drop-down menu if giving online. “If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD—and He will repay you!” (Proverbs19:17).

Calvary Neighborfest – August 8

We are encouraging all people to BLESS those around you in some way during the days leading up to our Neighborfest celebration on August 8. We are using “B.L.E.S.S.” practices, making the free book by that title available to all church attendees. Begin by praying for five people God places on your heart with whom you live, work, or play (friends, relatives, acquaintances, neighbors, and colleagues), building relationships with them. “B.L.E.S.S.” covers the spectrum from simple to complex: writing a note to a lonely person or teacher, getting together for coffee or lunch, cleaning a city park as a family or small group, or installing a roof or floor for a person in need. We serve “without strings,” seeking to show others Jesus’ love. Then invite someone you’ve been ‘B.L.E.S.S.-ing” this summer to this outreach event on August 8, 4-7 p.m., in the Calvary parking lot. There will be live music, free food, games, children’s activities – lots of fun and fellowship!
