WORSHIP LYRICS & SERMON NOTES FOR 4.11.21

Graves Into Gardens

I searched the world
But it couldn’t fill me
Man’s empty praise
And treasures that fade
Are never enough
Then You came along
And put me back together
And every desire is now satisfied
Here in Your love

Oh there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord there’s nothing
Nothing is better than You

I’m not afraid to show You my weakness
My failures and flaws
Lord You’ve seen them all
And You still call me friend
‘Cause the God of the mountain
Is the God of the valley
And there’s not a place
Your mercy and grace
Won’t find me again

You turn mourning into dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You’re the only one who can

You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You’re the only one who can

The Earth is Yours

Your voice it thunders
The oaks start twisting
The forest sounds with cedars breaking
The waters see You and start their writhing
From the depths a song is rising

Now it’s rising from the ground

Holy, holy, holy, holy Lord
The earth is Yours and singing
Holy, holy, holy, holy Lord
The earth is Yours, the earth is Yours

Your voice is thunders
The ground is shaking
The mighty mountains now are trembling
Creation sees You and starts composing
The fields and trees they start rejoicing

Now it’s rising from the ground
Now it’s rising from the ground
Hear us crying out, hear us crying out

Cannons

It’s falling from the clouds
A strange and lovely sound
I hear it in the thunder and the rain
It’s ringing in the sky
Like cannons in the night
The music of the universe plays

Singing, You are holy, great and mighty
The moon and the stars
Declare who You are
I’m so unworthy but still You love me
Forever my heart
Will sing of how great You are

Beautiful and free the song of galaxies
It’s reaching far beyond the Milky Way
Let’s join in with the sound
Come on lets sing it loud
As the music of the universe plays

All glory, honor, power, is Yours, amen
All glory honor, power, is Yours, amen
All glory honor, power, is Yours, forever amen

How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds
Thy hands have made
I see the stars I hear the rolling thunder
Thy pow’r throughout
The universe displayed

Then sings my soul
My Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

When through the woods
And forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze

Beautiful

I see Your face in every sunrise
The colors of the morning
Are inside Your eyes
The world awakens in the light of day
I look up to the sky and say
You’re beautiful

I see Your power in the moonlit night
Where planets are in motion
And galaxies are bright
We are amazed in the light of the stars
It’s all proclaiming who You are
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful

I see you there hanging on a tree
You bled and then you died
And then you rose again for me
Now you are sitting
On Your heavenly throne
Soon we will be coming home
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful

When we arrive at eternity’s shore
Where death is just a memory
And tears are no more
We’ll enter in as the wedding bells ring
Your bride will come together
And we’ll sing You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful

Praying for our missionaries

On Sunday we’ll be praying for our missionaries Keith and Jacqueline Stanton (Florida) who are with Ethnos 360.
• Pray for the work the Stantons are doing in their church in Florida. They are working with the young adult ministry and also helping form a new mission’s team and program.
• Pray for their Alumni Coaching Program. They currently have 5 coaches and are looking to add another couple within the next year. Pray God will send just the right people. Also, for cohesiveness with the other departments the Stantons work alongside of.
• Pray for God to provide financially for their mission’s support, and for more opportunities to seek out partnership development. Pray for more ministry partners.

Sermon Notes 4.11.21

Main Scripture
ACTS 14:8-18 – 8 In Lystra there sat a man who was lame. He had been that way from birth and had never walked. 9 He listened to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed 10 and called out, “Stand up on your feet!” At that, the man jumped up and began to walk.

11 When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in human form!” 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker. 13 The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.

14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting: 15 “Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them. 16 In the past, he let all nations go their own way. 17 Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.” 18 Even with these words, they had difficulty keeping the crowd from sacrificing to them.

Other Scripture
LUKE 4:16-20 – 16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” 20 Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

ROMANS 1:20 – 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

PSALM 19:1-4 – The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. 3 They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. 4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.
