Music and Worship: December 11th, 2016

Good afternoon!

We are a couple weeks into Advent now and this last week our focus was on joy, and all that Christ has done and will do through His return! Here is a recap of the songs we sang, as well as some of the scriptures that inform them. 

We hope you are encouraged by the truths that you hear and read below.

 

18db93bad7b3a4a6ee5db8ffb64625c6O Come All Ye Faithful

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! (Psalm 95:6)


Hymn of Joy

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)


Joy to the World/Our God Saves

When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. (John 16:21)

Our God is a God of salvation, and to GOD, the Lord, belong deliverances from death. (Psalm 68:20)


Rejoice Oh Joy of Heaven Is He 

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:10-14)


His Name Shall Be

See above at Isaiah 9:6


Sing to the King

...to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen. (1 Timothy 6:14-16)

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness; you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions... (Psalm 45:6-7)
