Morning meeting 04/08/2019

Our meeting today was led by CMS Allan Scott.

The band provided the call to worship by reminding us to

Be still, for the presence of the Lord, the Holy One, is here;
Come bow before him now with reverence and fear:
In him no sin is found – we stand on holy ground.
Be still, for the presence of the Lord, the Holy One, is here.

Be still, for the glory of the Lord is shining all around;
He burns with holy fire, with splendour he is crowned:
How awesome is the sight – our radiant King of light!
Be still, for the glory of the Lord is shining all around.

Be still, for the power of the Lord is moving in this place;
He comes to cleanse and heal, to minister his grace –
No work too hard for him. In faith receive from him.
Be still, for the power of the Lord is moving in this place.

We may be only Christian that people we meet may ever see. So Alan challenged us to make sure we are the kind of Christian that Christ himself would approve of.

During worship the band played Howard Davies’ arrangement of the song He Found Me

The Saviour sought and found me,
Far from the narrow way;
He made my blinded eyes to see
On that wonderful, wonderful day!

Chorus
He sought me, he sought me,
When I was wandering far away;
He found me, he found me,
O what a wonderful day!

He lifted sin’s great burden,
He saw my deep dismay,
And graciously he pardoned me
On that wonderful, wonderful day.

My sin was red like crimson,
He washed it all away;
He filled my heart with melody
On that wonderful, wonderful day.

The band concluded worship with the tune Trust In God, to which we associate the following words of reassurance

When from sin’s dark hold thy love had won me,
And its wounds thy tender hands had healed,
As thy blest commands were laid upon me,
Growing light my growing need revealed.
Thus I sought the path of consecration
When to thee, dear Lord, my vows were given;
And the joy which came with full salvation
Winged my feet and filled my heart with Heaven.

By the love that never ceased to hold me,
By the blood which thou didst shed for me,
While thy presence and thy power enfold me,
I renew my covenant with thee.
