*CALL TO WORSHIP Psalm 86:8-13 (Responsive Reading) O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing

Leader: There is none like You among the gods, O LORD, nor are there any works like Yours. All the nations You have made shall come and worship before You, O LORD, and shall glorify Your name. For You are great and do wondrous things; Congregation: You alone are God. Leader: Teach me Your way, O LORD, that I may walk in Your truth; Congregation: Unite my heart to fear Your name. Leader: I give thanks to You, O LORD my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify Your name forever. All: For great is Your steadfast love toward me; You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. (ESV)

Yet I Sin

From Valley of Vision

Eternal Father, thou art good beyond all thought, but I am vile, wretched, miserable, blind; My lips are ready to confess, but my heart is slow to feel, and my ways reluctant to amend. I bring my soul to thee; break it, wound it, bend it, mould it. Unmask to me sin s deformity, that I may hate it, abhor it, flee from it. My faculties have been a weapon of revolt against thee; as a rebel I have misused my strength, and served the foul adversary of thy kingdom. Give me grace to bewail my insensate folly, grant me to know that the way of transgressors is hard, that evil paths are wretched paths, that to depart from thee is to lose all good. I have seen the purity and beauty of thy perfect law, the happiness of those in whose heart it reigns, the calm dignity of the walk to which it calls, yet I daily violate and contemn its precepts. Thy loving Spirit strives within me, brings my Scripture warnings, speaks in startling providences, allures by secret whispers, yet I choose devices and desires to my own hurt, impiously resent, grieve, and provoke him to abandon me. All these sins I mourn, lament, and for them cry pardon. Work in me more profound and abiding repentance; Give me the fullness of a godly grief that trembles and fears, yet ever trusts and loves, which is ever powerful, and ever confident; grant that through the tears of repentance I may see more clearly the brightness and glories of the saving cross.
