Worship Bulletin – July 12, 2020


Join us for worship on the lawn this Sunday at 8:30am! Please dress comfortably for the weather (shorts, hats, etc.), bring a lawn chair or blanket, and join us beside the lake for an outdoor worship service.  Our sanctuary is also available for anyone desiring to sit indoors during the service; the outdoor worship service will be displayed on the screens. Please wear a mask while transitioning in and out of the building, maintain social distancing, and follow the guidance of the ushers.

WELCOME!

Bethany is a church family following Jesus together.

We sing His praises. We pray in His name. We teach His Word. We love His people. We share His message. All this and more we do together because THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM.

Whether you’ve been following Jesus for years or are just getting started, we hope today you experience the good news of Jesus and discover how to take the next step on the path of following Him.

SONG LYRICS

O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing (Azmon)

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise
The glories of my God and King
The triumphs of His grace

My gracious Master and my God
Assist me to proclaim
To spread thru all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name

Jesus the name that charms our fears
That bids our sorrows cease
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears
‘Tis life and health and peace

He breaks the pow’r of canceled sin
He sets the pris’ner free
His blood can make the foulest clean
His blood availed for me

Hear Him ye deaf His praise ye dumb
Your loosened tongues employ
Ye blind behold your Savior come
And leap ye lame for joy

Glory to God and praise and love
Be ever ever giv’n
By saints below and saints above
The Church in earth and heav’n

Christ Be All

Oh to be empty and lowly
Meek and unnoticed, and unknown
And to God a vessel holy
Filled with Christ, and Christ alone

How great is God! His grandeur endless
How frail I come before his throne
I am lost in love relentless
That Christ be all, and I his own

May Christ be all and I be nothing
His glory shines in vessels weak
May Christ be all and I be nothing
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me

I am poor, and I have nothing
All my deeds cannot avail
But Christ endured the Father’s crushing
He bowed his head, as Mercy bled,
peace to prevail
He bowed his head, as Mercy bled,
peace to prevail

May Christ be all and I be nothing
His glory shines in vessels weak
May Christ be all and I be nothing
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me

Bring me low, my heart lower still
That your grace my pride relieves
May these words resound loud until
Every tribe and tongue believes

Bring me low, my heart lower still
That your grace my pride relieves
May these words resound loud until
Every tribe and tongue can sing

May Christ be all and I be nothing
His glory shines in vessels weak
May Christ be all and I be nothing
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me
This is my hope: Not I but Christ in me

On golden shores of sure salvation
I will run to meet my King
Freed from shame and all accusation
He’ll give Himself. Nothing I’ll bring
He’ll give Himself. Nothing I’ll bring

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light my strength my song
This Cornerstone this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love what depths of peace
When fears are stilled when strivings cease
My Comforter my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

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 thru’out 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 thru 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.

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!

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.
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 Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art.

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!
