O God Our Help In Ages Past

B. Benedict | W. Croft | I. Watts

Our Shelter from the stormy blast

And our eternal Home

Under the shadow of Your throne

Your saints have dwelt secure

Sufficient is Your arm alone

And our defense is sure

You are the God of Adam

You are the God of Abraham

You are the God of Moses

In the wilderness

You are the God of Jacob

You are the God of Israel

You are the God of Joshua

Before the Promised Land

You are the God of David

You are the God of Solomon

You are the God of Jesus

Who holds us in His hands

Who holds us in His hand

Before the hills in order stood

Or earth received her frame

From everlasting, Thou art God

To endless years the same

O God, our Help in ages past

Our Hope for years to come

Be Thou our Guide while life shall last

And our eternal Home

Not To Us

J. Reeves | C. Tomlin

The cross before me

The world behind

No turning back

Raise the banner high

It’s not for me; it’s all for you

Let the heavens shake

And split the sky

Let the people clap

Their hands and cry

It’s not for us; it’s all for you

chorus

Not to us

But to your name be the glory

Not to us

But to your name be the glory

Our hearts unfold

Before your throne

The only place

For those who know

It’s not for us, it’s all for you

Send your holy fire

On this offering

Let our worship burn

For the world to see

It’s not for us, it’s all for You

chorus

Not to us

But to your name be the glory

Not to us

But to your name be the glory

The earth is shaking

The mountains shouting

It’s all for you

The waves are crashing

The sun is raging

It’s all for you

The universe

Spinning and singing

It’s all for you

Your children dancing

Dancing, dancing

It’s all for you, it’s all for you

chorus

Not to us

But to your name be the glory

Not to us

But to your name be the glory

(repeat)

Song of Response
O Praise The Name (Anástasis)

B. Hastings | D. Ussher | M. Sampson

I cast my mind to Calvary

Where Jesus bled and died for me

I see His wounds His hands His feet

My Savior on that cursed tree

His body bound and drenched in tears

They laid Him down in Joseph’s tomb

The entrance sealed by heavy stone

Messiah still and all alone

chorus

O praise the Name

Of the Lord our God

O praise His Name forevermore

For endless days

We will sing Your praise

Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Then on the third at break of dawn

The Son of heaven rose again

O trampled death where is your sting

The angels roar for Christ the King

chorus

O praise the Name

Of the Lord our God

O praise His Name forevermore

For endless days

We will sing Your praise

Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

He shall return in robes of white

The blazing sun shall pierce the night

And I will rise among the saints

My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face

chorus

O praise the Name

Of the Lord our God

O praise His Name forevermore

For endless days

We will sing Your praise

Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

(repeat)

Benediction

Rev. John Sittema

Reflection & Application

  1. Discuss examples of power exercised in the name of someone else. What do you think is meant by Luke 10:17 in this regard?
  2. In Acts 3:16, Peter explains further what is meant by how the power of the name of Jesus is exercised. What do you think he means?
  3. In this passage, Peter does not only refer to “healing” in a physical sense. He speaks of “times of refreshment”. He speaks of the time of the “restoring of all things”. And crucially, he makes clear that such redemptive healing happens on the other side of repenting. Reflect on/talk about all of this.
