HYMN #347 “All Creatures of Our God and King”
1-All creatures of our God and King, lift up your voice and with us sing, alleluia, alleluia. Thou burning sun with golden beam, thou silver moon with softer gleam, O praise him, O praise Him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
2-Thou rushing wind that are so strong, ye clouds that sail in heaven along, O praise him, alleluia. Thou rising morn in praise rejoice, ye lights of evening, find a voice. O praise him, O praise Him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
3-Thou flowing water, pure and clear, make music for thy Lord to hear, alleluia, alleluia. Thou fire so masterful and bright, that givest man both warmth and light, O praise him, O praise Him, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
HE IS EXALTED
He is exalted, the King is exalted on high. I will praise him. He is exalted, for ever exalted and I will praise his name! He is the Lord. Forever his truth shall reign. Heaven and earth, rejoice in his holy name. He is exalted, the King is exalted on high!
FROM THE WORD Luke 24:44-53
SHOW YOUR POWER
1-He is the Lord and he reigns on high. He is the Lord. Spoke into the darkness, created the light. He is the Lord. Who is like unto Him, never ending in days? He is the Lord. And he comes in pow’r when we call on His name. He is the Lord. Show your power, O Lord our God. Show your power, O Lord our God, our God.
2-You are the one worthy of praise. You are the Lord. Almighty, Victorious, Beginning and End. You are the Lord. In your goodness and mercy you gave us your Son. You are the Lord. And into your presence, we come by your grace. You are the Lord. Send your power, O Lord our God. Send your power, O Lord our God, our God.

FROM THE WORD ”The Never Ending Story: the Ascension” Acts 1:6-14 Pastor Brad Hill
1-Only in God my soul is at rest, in Him is my salvation. He alone is my Rock, my horn and my protection.
CHORUS-My Stronghold, My Savior. I will not be afraid at all. My Stronghold, My Savior. I will not be moved.
2) Even the sparrow has found a home in safety ‘neath your altar. Secure in her nest, the swallow can rest, with you, her young are sheltered.
3) Happy are those whose strength is in You, whose hearts are turned toward Zion. Though they journey in years, yet their hope is renewed, and songs replace their sighing.
