GATHERING FOR WORSHIP CHORAL CALL TO WORSHIP
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross Lowell Mason (1792 - 1872) Arr. Gilbert M. Martin (b. 1941) Calvary Chamber Singers
When I survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of glory died My richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast save in the death of Christ, my God All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to his blood. See, from his head, his hands, his feet, sorrow and love flow mingled down Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, or thorns compose so rich a crown? Were the whole realm of nature mine, that were a present far too small Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all! Amen!
PROCLAIMING THE RESURRECTION Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen Indeed! PROCESSION, HYMN

Most Glorious Lord of Life Gary Davison (b. 1961) Calvary Festival Choir
Most glorious Lord of life, that on this day Didst make thy triumph over death and sin, And having harrowed hell, didst bring away Captivity thence captive, us to win: This joyous day, dear Lord, with joy begin, And grant that we, for whom thou did’est die, Being with thy dear blood clean washed from sin, May live forever in felicity: And that thy love we weighing worthily, May likewise love thee for the same again; And for thy sake, that all like dear didst buy, With love may one another entertain; So let us love, dear Love, like as we ought; Love is the lesson which the Lord us taught. – Sonnet 68 from Amoretti, by Edmund Spenser (c. 1552 - 1599)

Amy Butler Crown Him with Many Crowns DIADEMATA
George J. Elvey (1816 - 1893) / arr. Patti Drennan
Choir: Crown Him King of Kings! Crown Him Lord of Lords! Crown him with many crowns, the Lamb upon his throne. Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own. Awake, my soul, and sing of him who died for thee, and hail him as thy matchless King through all eternity. Crown him the Lord of life, who triumphed o’er the grave, and rose victorious in the strife for those he came to save; His glories now we sing who died, and rose on high, who died, eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die. Crown him the Lord of peace, whose power a scepter sways from pole to pole, that wars may cease, and all be prayer and praise. His reign shall know no end, and ‘round his pierced feet fair flowers of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet. Crown him the Lord of love; behold his hands and side, those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified. All hail, Redeemer, hail! For thou hast died for me; thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity. Choir: Crown Him King of Kings! Crown Him Lord of Lords! Crown Him with many crowns! – v. 1, 3 and 4, Matthew Bridges (1800 - 1894) / v. 2, Godfrey Thring (1823 - 1903)

WORSHIP JUST BELIEVE: We begin a new sermon series for the Easter Season on April 27. Belief is a nice idea, but the way it’s been defined in religious circles just won’t work for some of us. What if we can’t “just believe”? Jesus’ first followers had the same struggle—they came to believe in different ways. During the season of Easter we’ll consider different ways in which we come to believe. TODAY IF YOU ARE VISITING WITH US TODAY, WELCOME! Please take a moment to complete a visitor card, located in the pew racks. Place your completed card in the offering plate or give it to a pastor at the end of worship. Thank you for worshiping with us today. POTLUCK LUNCH. Join us today in Woodward Hall immediately following worship for Easter Brunch with all the trimmings, plus an Easter Egg Decorating event.
