Welcome to Nassau Presbyterian Church Online Worship
Call to Worship & Prayer of Confession
Psalm 121
I lift up my eyes to the hills—
    from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.
The Lord will keep you from all evil;
    he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep
    your going out and your coming in
    from this time on and forevermore.
Merciful God,
we confess we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you
with our whole heart
and mind and strength.
We have not loved our neighbors
as ourselves.
 
In your mercy
forgive what we have been,
help us amend what we are,
and direct what we shall be,
so that we may delight in your will
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your holy name.
Amen.
Hymn 213 - In the Cross of Christ I Glory
1 In the cross of Christ I glory,
towering o’er the wrecks of time;
all the light of sacred story
gathers round its head sublime.

2 When the woes of life o’er-take me,
hopes deceive, and fears annoy,
never shall the cross forsake me;
lo, it glows with peace and joy.

3 When the sun of bliss is beaming
light and love upon my way,
from the cross the radiance streaming
adds more luster to the day.

4 Bane and blessing,
pain and pleasure,
by the cross are sanctified;
peace is there that
knows no measure,
joys that through all time abide.

5 In the cross of Christ I glory,
towering o’er the wrecks of time;
all the light of sacred story
gathers round its head sublime.

Children's Choirs - Feed My Lambs
Feed My lambs, Tend My Sheep,
over all a vigil keep;
In My Name lead them forth
gently as a shepherd.

When they wander, when they stray,
their protector be.
As ye do unto My flock,
thus ye do to Me.

Unto all who lose the way,
hope and comfort be.
As ye do unto My flock,
thus ye do to Me.

Sermon
Rev. Davis A. Davis preaches on Luke 8:26-39
Hymn 182 - I heard the Voice of Jesus Say
1 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto me and rest;
lay down, O weary one, lay down
your head upon my breast.”
I came to Jesus as I was,
so weary, worn, and sad;
I found him in a resting place,
and he has made me glad.

2 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
the living water, thirsty one;
stoop down and drink and live.”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
of that life-giving stream;
my thirst was quenched,
my soul revived,
and now I live in him.

3 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s light;
look unto me, your morn shall rise,
and all your day be bright.”
I looked to Jesus, and I found
in him my star, my sun;
and in that light of life I’ll walk
till traveling days are done.
