Order of Worship
February 22, 2015
from Psalm 115
LEADER: Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the
glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
PEOPLE: Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven.
LEADER: You who fear him, trust in the Lord—he is their
help and shield. The Lord remembers us and will bless
us: He will bless those who fear the Lord— small and
great alike. May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker
of heaven and earth.
PEOPLE: The heavens are the heavens of the LORD, but
the earth He has given to the sons of men. The
dead do not praise the LORD, nor do any who go
down into silence; but as for us, we will bless the
LORD from this time forth and forever.
LEADER: Praise the Lord!
O worship the King, All glorious above,
And gratefully sing, His power and His love:
Our Shield and Defender, The Ancient of Days,
Pavilioned in splendor, And girded with praise.
O tell of His might, And sing of His grace,
Whose robe is the light, Whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath, The deep thunderclouds form,
And dark is His path, On the wings of the storm.
Thy bountiful care, What tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air; It shines in the light.
It streams from the hills; It descends to the plain,
And sweetly distills, In the dew and the rain.
Frail children of dust, And feeble as frail,
In Thee do we trust, Nor find Thee to fail.
Thy mercies how tender! How firm to the end!
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!
There is an endless song,
Echoes in my soul
I hear the music ring
And though the storms may come,
I am holding on
To the rock I cling
How can I keep from singing Your praise,
How can I ever say enough
How amazing is Your love,
How can I keep from shouting Your name
I know I am loved by the King,
And it makes my heart want to sing
I will lift my eyes,
In the darkest night
For I know my Savior lives
And I will walk with You,
Knowing You’ll see me through
And sing the songs You give (chorus)
Wee Ones

Righteous Ruler of the heavens
Holy, holy, our God
Sovereign Lord of all creation
Holy, holy, our God
Every tribe and tongue, Lift your voice as one,
He is greatly to be praised
Sing to the Lord, oh my soul
Let the heavens shout for joy
Great is our God
Great is our God
Nations come and bow before Him
Holy, holy, our God
Angels sing now and forever
Holy, holy, our God (chorus)
Jesus, come let us adore him
Holy, holy, our God
Jesus, come let us adore him
Holy, holy, our God (chorus)
from Psalm 28
UNISON: To you I call, O LORD my Rock; do not turn a deaf
ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who
have gone down to the pit. Hear my cry for mercy as I call to
you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy
(silent prayers of confession)
UNISON: Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for
mercy. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart
trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I
will give thanks to him in song. The LORD is the strength of
his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. Save
your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and
carry them forever.
Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt,
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt!
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within!
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin!
Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss.
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the refuge, the mighty Cross. (chorus)
Dark is the stain that we cannot hide.
What can avail to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide;
Whiter than snow you may be today. (chorus)
Parents, if you’d like for your children (3K-Kindergarten) to participate
in Children’s Church, please dismiss them after the offering is collected.

Where in the World
The Children’s Home
Bhogpur, located in
Northern India, has its
founding and expansion
largely due to the tireless
efforts of David and
Eleanor Fiol. The Home’s
mission is to see
underprivileged children
from leprosy-affected
communities cared for,
educated, and morally
nurtured to become well
adjusted in today’s world as
living witnesses of our
Lord Jesus Christ.
There are 298 children in
the Home receiving care,
education, and sound
Biblical teaching. They are
nurtured by a staff
dedicated to seeing that the
children grow in their
knowledge of God and
love for Jesus Christ.
Redeemer currently
sponsors four children at
$60/month per child.
Pray for Redeemer’s
children in the Home—
sisters Ritu and Mohini
Kumari and brothers
Rohan and Harry Mahato.
Pray that God would
raise them up to be godly
men and women who will
share the Gospel with the
world around them.
See home4children.com
for more information.

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 ever 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

HELP HOST A STUDENT: Our church has the opportunity to welcome to the US and Charleston a
Mexican student who’s coming to visit John & Nell Evans for two weeks March 28 - April 12.
Here’s how you can help:
Offer a spare bed to David while he’s here in Charleston (for a night or two, a week, etc.)
Show him some Charleston sights by letting him tag along with your family on your day at the beach
or your tour of Fort Sumter.
 Take him along to shadow you at work for the day (especially if you have an interesting job!).
 Invite him to bike with you over the Ravenel Bridge.
These are just a few ideas, but Nell is open to others as she makes plans for David’s trip (March 28-April
12). So contact Nell via email ([email protected]) this week with how you can help.
Find announcements, more details about upcoming events, and information about church life in our
weekly Email Blast—available at redeemer-charleston.org/email-blast and on our Facebook page.
