Come Thou Fount

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing Thy grace; Streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above. Praise the name! I’m fixed upon it, name of Thy redeeming love.

Hitherto Thy love has blessed me; Thou hast drawn me to this place; And I know Thy hand will bring me, safely home by Thy good grace. Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God; He, to rescue me from danger, bought me with His precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be! Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to Thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for Thy courts above.

O that day when free from sinning I shall see Thy lovely face. Full arrayed in blood washed linen how I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace. Come, my Lord, no longer tarry. Bring Thy promises to pass. For I know Thy power will keep me ’til I’m home with Thee at last.

Fairest Lord Jesus

Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature, O Thou of God and man the Son, Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor, Thou, my soul’s glory, joy and crown.

Fair is the sunshine, fairer still the moonlight, and all the twinkling starry host. Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer than all the angels heav’n can boast.

Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations! Son of God and Son of Man! Glory and honor, praise, adoration, now and forever more be Thine.

My Heart Is Filled with Thankfulness

My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who bore my pain; Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace and gave me life again; Who crushed my curse of sinfulness and clothed me with His light and wrote His law of righteousness with pow’r upon my heart.

My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who walks beside; Who floods my weaknesses with strength and causes fear to fly; Whose every promise is enough for every step I take, sustaining me with arms of love and crowning me with grace.

My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who reigns above, whose wisdom is my perfect peace, whose every thought is love. For every day I have on earth is given by the King; So I will give my life, my all, to love and follow Him.

You Are My All In All

You are my strength when I am weak, You are the treasure that I seek, you are my all in all. Seeking You as a precious jew’l, Lord to give up I’d be a fool. You are my all in all.

Refrain: Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is Your name. Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is Your name.

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame, rising again I bless Your name. You are my all in all. When I fall down You pick me up, when I am dry You fill my cup. You are my all in all. Refrain

I Will Glory in My Redeemer

I will glory in my Redeemer, Whose priceless blood has ransomed me. Mine was the sin that drove the bitter nails, and hung Him on that judgment tree. I will glory in my Redeemer, Who crushed the pow’r of sin and death, my only Savior before the holy Judge: the Lamb Who is my righteousness, the Lamb Who is my righteousness.

I will glory in my Redeemer, my life He bought, my love He owns. I have no longings for another; I’m satisfied in Him alone. I will glory in my Redeemer, His faithfulness my standing place. Though foes are mighty and rush upon me, my feet are firm, held by His grace, my feet are firm, held by His grace.

I will glory in my Redeemer, Who carries me on eagle’s wings. He crowns my life with lovingkindness; His triumph song I’ll ever sing. I will glory in my Redeemer, Who waits for me at gates of gold, and when He calls me it will be paradise His face forever to behold, His face forever to behold.

We may never know for sure, but here are Tim Challies‘ thoughts on how the book of Proverbs relates to our massive social media intake and output today. They’re good thoughts; be challenged by them.

Joy Has Dawned

Joy has dawned upon the world, promised from creation. God’s salvation now unfurled, hope for ev’ry nation. Not with fanfares from above, not with scenes of glory, but a humble gift of love, Jesus born of Mary.

Sounds of wonder fill the sky with the songs of angels as the mighty Prince of Life shelters in a stable. Hands that set each star in place, shaped the earth in darkness, cling now to a mother’s breast, vulnerable and helpless.

Shepherds bow before the Lamb, gazing at the glory. Gifts of men from distant lands prophesy the story. Gold, a King is born today! Incense, God is with us! Myrrh, His death will make a way, by His blood He’ll win us!

Son of Adam, Son of heaven, given as a ransom. Reconciling God and man, Christ our mighty Champion! What a Savior, what a Friend, what a glorious mystery! Once a babe in Bethlehem, now the Lord of history!

Jesus Messiah

He became sin who knew no sin that we might become His righteousness. He humbled Himself and carried the cross. Love so amazing! Love so amazing!

Refrain: Jesus, Messiah, Name above all names, Blessed Redeemer, Emmanuel, The Rescue for sinners, The Ransom from heaven, Jesus, Messiah, Lord of all.

His body, the bread. His blood, the wine. Broken and poured out, all for love. The whole earth trembled and the veil was torn. Love so amazing! Love so amazing! Refrain

All our hope is in You. All our hope is in You. All the glory to You, God, The Light of the world. Refrain

Behold The Lamb

Behold the Lamb Who bears our sins away, slain for us – and we remember the promise made, that all who come in faith find forgiveness at the cross. So we share in this bread of life, and we drink of His sacrifice as a sign of our bonds of peace, around the table of the King.

The body of our Savior Jesus Christ torn for you – eat, and remember the wounds that heal, the death that brings us life, paid the price to make us one. So we share in this bread of life, and we drink of His sacrifice as a sign of our bonds of love, around the table of the King.

The blood that cleanses ev’ry stain of sin shed for you – drink, and remember He drained death’s cup that all may enter in to receive the life of God. So we share in this bread of life, and we drink of His sacrifice as a sign of our bonds of grace around the table of the King.

And so with thankfulness and faith we rise to respond – and to remember our call to follow in the steps of Christ as His body here on earth. As we share in His suffering, we proclaim Christ will come again! And we’ll join in the feast of heaven around the table of the King.

There Is a Fountain

There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Emmanuel’s veins; And sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains. Lose all their guilty stains, lose all their guilty stains; And sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains.

The dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain in his day; And there have I, though vile as he, washed all my sins away. Washed all my sins away, washed all my sins away; And there have I, though vile as he, washed all my sins away.

Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood shall never lose its power Till all the ransomed church of God be saved, to sin no more. Be saved, to sin no more, be saved, to sin no more; Till all the ransomed church of God be saved, to sin no more.

E’er since, by faith, I saw the stream Thy flowing wounds supply, Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die. And shall be till I die, and shall be till I die; Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die.

When this poor lisping, stammering tongue lies silent in the grave, then in a nobler, sweeter song I’ll sing Thy pow’r to save: I’ll sing Thy pow’r to save: I’ll sing Thy pow’r to save; Then in a nobler, sweeter song I’ll sing Thy pow’r to save.

Give Thanks

Give thanks with a grateful heart; Give thanks to the Holy One; Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son.

And now let the weak say, “I am strong;” Let the poor say, “I am rich,” Because of what the Lord has done for us.

Give thanks.

We’ve posted a few pictures from last night’s Men’s Softball game to our Flickr account. We’ll try to post some more in the last few games that we have. We lost our first game last night, being short several of our regular players, but had fun and were able to chat with a few guys from the community, so it was well worth it. Continue to pray with us that we would show Christ even as we play a quick game of softball in the community.

Men’s Softball update

Several of us from RBC have been privileged to enjoy being a part of Brighton’s fall men’s softball league. Our team consists of several men from our church, and a few others who are friends of men in our church. But our team isn’t a “church team”, per se. Our goals going into this were:

1) Live out the gospel as we play to God’s glory
2) Play to the best of our abilities to the glory of God
3) Meet people in our community
4) Have fun


Thus far, by God’s grace, we’ve been able to do that, and even haven’t lost a game yet (Here are the standings to prove it – we’re the “Bible Church” team, even though we submitted a different team name: The Moosen). We’ve played 3 so far, and look forward to another game tonight at 6:30. Continue to pray with us that God would use our efforts in a game like softball to build relationships with one another and others in our community for His glory and the furtherance of His Kingdom.

Lyrics from 9.26.10 Worship Songs

This week we heard an exposition of what is usually referred to as “the Christmas story” in Luke 2. Because of this week’s focus on that passage, we sang songs that are normally associated with Christmas time. It’s important to remember, though, that these songs that we sing that are usually sung at Christmas time are not only appropriate at that time of year. Many Christmas songs are fully of rich theological truths about the person and work of our Christ. As you read these lyrics, meditate on the truths about your Christ, and worship privately as a result.

WHAT CHILD IS THIS?

What Child is this who, laid to rest on Mary’s lap is sleeping? Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and Angels sing; Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, the Babe, the Son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate, where ox and ass are feeding? Good Christians, fear, for sinners here the silent Word is pleading. Nails, spear shall pierce Him through, the cross be borne for me, for you. Hail, hail the Word made flesh, the Babe, the Son of Mary.

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh, come peasant, king to own Him; The King of kings salvation brings, let loving hearts enthrone Him. Raise, raise a song on high, the virgin sings her lullaby. Joy, joy for Christ is born, the Babe, the Son of Mary.

O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant, o come ye, o come ye, to Bethlehem. Come and behold Him, born the King of angels;

Refrain: O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation; O sing, all ye citizens of heav’n above! Glory to God, all glory in the highest; Refrain

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning; Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv’n; Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing. Refrain

HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING

Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King; Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled!” Joyful, all ye nations rise, join the triumph of the skies; with th’angelic host proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem!”

Refrain: Hark! the herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”

Christ, by highest heav’n adored; Christ the everlasting Lord; late in time, behold Him come, offspring of a virgin’s womb. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; hail th’incarnate Deity, pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus our Emmanuel. Refrain

Come, Desire of nations, come, fix in us Thy humble home; rise, the woman’s conqu’ring Seed, bruise in us the serpent’s head. Now display Thy saving power, ruined nature now restore; now in mystic union join thine to ours, and ours to Thine. Refrain

Hail the heav’born Prince of Peace! Hail the Sun of Righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, ris’n with healing in His wings. Mild He lays His glory by, born that man no more may die. Born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth. Refrain

WHO IS HE IN YONDER STALL?

Who is He in yonder stall at Whose feet the shepherds fall? Who is He in deep distress, fasting in the wilderness?

Refrain: ’Tis the Lord! O wondrous story! ’Tis the Lord! the King of glory! At His feet we humbly fall, crown Him! crown Him, Lord of all!

Who is He the people bless for His words of gentleness? Who is He to Whom they bring all the sick and sorrowing?

Who is He that stands and weeps at the grave where Lazarus sleeps? Who is He the gathering throng greet with loud triumphant song? Refrain

Lo! at midnight, who is He prays in dark Gethsemane? Who is He on yonder tree dies in grief and agony?

Who is He that from the grave comes to heal and help and save? Who is He that from His throne Rules through all the world alone? Refrain

Joy Has Dawned

Joy has dawned upon the world, promised from creation. God’s salvation now unfurled, hope for ev’ry nation. Not with fanfares from above, not with scenes of glory, but a humble gift of love, Jesus born of Mary.

Sounds of wonder fill the sky with the songs of angels as the mighty Prince of Life shelters in a stable. Hands that set each star in place, shaped the earth in darkness, cling now to a mother’s breast, vulnerable and helpless.

Shepherds bow before the Lamb, Gazing at the glory. Gifts of men from distant lands prophesy the story. Gold, a King is born today! Incense, God is with us! Myrrh, His death will make a way, by His blood He’ll win us!

Son of Adam, Son of heaven, given as a ransom. Reconciling God and man, Christ our mighty Champion! What a Savior, what a Friend, what a glorious mystery! Once a babe in Bethlehem, now the Lord of history!

IMMANUEL

From the squalor of a borrowed stable, by the spirit and a virgin’s faith; to the anguish and the shame of scandal came the Saviour of the human race! But the skies were filled with the praise of heav’n, shepherds listen as the angels tell of the Gift of God come down to man at the dawning of Immanuel.

King of heaven now the Friend of sinners, humble servant in the Father’s hands, filled with power and the Holy Spirit, filled with mercy for the broken man. Yes, He walked my road and He felt my pain, joys and sorrows that I know so well; yet His righteous steps give me hope again – I will follow my Immanuel!

Through the kisses of a friend’s betrayal, he was lifted on a cruel cross; He was punished for the world’s transgressions, He was suffering to save the lost. He fights for breath, He fights for me, loosing sinners from the claims of hell; and with a shout our souls are free – Death defeated by Immanuel!

Now He’s standing in the place of honor, crowned with glory on the highest throne, interceding for His own beloved till His Father calls to bring them home! Then the skies will part as the trumpet sounds, hope of heaven or the fear of hell; but the Bride will run to her Lover’s arms, giving glory to Immanuel!
