We Will Glorify

We will glorify the King of kings
We will glorify the Lamb
We will glorify the Lord of lords
Who is the great I am


Lord Jehovah reigns in majesty
We will bow before His throne
We will worship Him in righteousness
We will worship Him alone


We will glorify the King of kings
We will glorify the Lamb
We will glorify the Lord of lords
Who is the great I am


He is Lord of Heaven, Lord of Earth
He is Lord of all who live
He is Lord above the universe
All praise to Him we give

Hallelujah to the King of kings
Hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to the Lord of Lords
Who is the great I am


We will glorify the King of kings
We will glorify the Lamb
We will glorify the Lord of lords
Who is the great I am
Who is the great I am



Merciful God, forgive us when our lives do not reflect your reign.  

Sometimes we forget our place before you 

and think too highly of ourselves.

Sometimes we are not as good as we think we are 

in living the life you intend. 

Sometimes we are too proud,
believing that our personal faith makes us superior
to those who have not found their way to a strong faith. 

Forgive us, God, and give us a new spirit.

Help us to follow Jesus

so that we might lead lives of meekness and righteousness.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.




DEDICATION OF TITHES & OFFERINGS                                                                                                                               Irna Hirano

God of all peoples and God of all places,

we present these offerings,

that they may be used to extend your liberating reign.

With them we offer our varied ministries,

that each of us may be a part of your answer

to the cries of the world.  Amen.

Lord I Need You

Lord I come, I confess

Bowing here I find my rest

Without You, I fall apart

You're the one that guides my heart 


Chorus:  Lord, I need You, oh I need You

Every hour I need You

My one defense, my righteousness

Oh God, how I need You 


Where sin runs deep, Your grace is more

Where grace is found is where You are

And where You are, Lord I am free

Holiness is Christ in me




Bridge: So teach my song to rise to You 

When temptation comes my way 

And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You

Jesus You're my hope and stay
