Worship in Song (Our practice is to sing standing. If it is more worshipful or comfortable for you to sit please feel free to be seated at any time.)
Prelude The Basin and the Towel Card Call to Worship The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.
Holy Spirit Come Springer Holy Spirit, come. Holy Spirit, dwell here. Fill this place with joy over-flowing, And peace over-flowing, And love over-flowing. In all of your glory, Come.
The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does. The LORD upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds Gilley
The LORD is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does. The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. The LORD watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy. My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever. — From Psalm 111
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds In the believer’s ear! It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, And drives away his fear It makes the wounded spirit whole, And calms the troubled breast; ‘tis manna to the hungry soul And to the weary, rest. Dear Name! the rock on which I build, My shield and hiding place, My never failing treas’ry filled With boundless stores of grace
Confession of Sin (In Unison) Abundant God, You have called us to be yours and have provided everything we need. Yet we doubt your care and draw back. Forgive us. Change us and renew us. Set us free to live full lives of grateful obedience.
Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend, My Prophet, Priest and King, My Lord, my Life, my Way My End, accept the praise I bring. Weak is the effort of my heart, And cold my warmest thought; But when I see thee as thou art, I’ll praise thee as I ought.
Words of Comfort and Assurance of Pardon The Lord delights in showing mercy; and his grace is sufficient for you. May he draw us to himself, forgive us our sins, and strengthen us in our inner being, with power through his Spirit Two

To Every Generation Batstone
Message: A Heart of Compassion
Chorus: You have been a shelter, Lord To every generation, to every generation, A sanctuary from the storm, To every generation, to every generation, Lord.
Praying Together Worship Through Our Gifts Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift. — 2 Corinthians 9:15 (The heart of the gospel is the overwhelming generosity of God to us in Christ. We are “blessed to be a blessing”. If you would like to contribute to the ministry of City Church of Honolulu gifts may be placed in the offering box located on the table at the back of the Sanctuary.)
Before the birth of the world’s great wonders, And lofty mountains high, Oh Lord, you were there, The Lord throughout all of time. You’ve seen the years pass in untold numbers, As in a single night. You’ve seen the lifetime of man Fade quickly before the light. (Chorus)
Our years go by before Your eyes. You know our rebellious ways. Make us wise to live holy lives In the balance of our days. (Chorus)
May the blessing of God, The giver of every good and perfect gift; And of Christ, who summons us to service; And of the Holy Spirit, Who empowers generosity and love. Be with us all.
There is a Redeemer Green There is a Redeemer, Jesus, God’s own Son. Precious Lamb of God Messiah, Holy One.
Doxology Bingham, Old Hundredth
Chorus: Thank you, Oh, my Father, for giving us Your Son, And leaving Your Spirit ‘til the work on earth is done. Jesus, my Redeemer, name above all names. Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, O for sinners slain. (Chorus)
Ho‘onani i ka Makua Mau Ke Keiki me ka ‘Uhane no Ke Akua Mau Ho‘omaika‘i pu Ko keia ao, ko kela ao. ‘Amene.
When I stand in glory I will see His face, There I’ll serve my King forever in that holy place. (Chorus)
Praise to the Eternal Father The Son with the Spirit indeed God Eternal Bless together Of this day; of that day everyday. Amen
