We love God’s Word. Therefore, we not only read it and preach it in worship, but we also sing it. Below are some of the scripture-based musical responses we have included in our service. The responses currently in use are at the top of each column.
Confession of Sin
O Lord, our Saviour help,
And glorify thy name.
Deliver us from all our sin,
And take away our shame.

Shall thy salvation know.

Forever settled in the heav’ns,
Thy Word, O LORD, shall firmly stand;
Thy faithfulness shall never fail;

To read and mark Thy Holy Word;
Its truths with meekness to receive,
And by its holy precepts live.

Now be the God of Isr’el bless’d,
Who makes his truth appear;

Text: Luke 1:68-70 | Tune: CHRISTMAS | Meter: C.M.rep.
The heav’ns declare the glory
of our great God above,
and the stars up in the firmament
show forth his handiwork.
But his Law shows something greater:
his pow’r to save the soul,
and to sanctify us wholly,
that we may know his will.
His word do we desire,
yea, more than precious gold;
for its promise and its warnings
doth bring us great reward.
