Text of GET READY FOR WORSHIP - Oh, sing to God above Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Oh, sing to God above...


    During the period of online worship, our worship style is simplified, with

    no musical liturgy, but with hymns and/or songs. The texts of hymns and

    songs will be printed in this online bulletin where they appear in the order

    of worship. You are encouraged to sing along at home with the

    accompaniment from the musician at church.

    This is a time to bust forth fully in song without worrying about being

    heard by the congregation, which should encourage some of the more shy

    singers among you, and to give full prayerful voice to fear or sorrow,

    supplications for mercy, and of course, to trust, hope and praise.


    Members are encouraged to have gathered both bread and wine or grape

    juice in the space where family members will gather for worship, so that

    everyone may participate in the full liturgy of the Eucharist. Even if you are

    alone in your home, please partake of the body and blood of Christ in the

    forms of bread and wine. We are together in the Body of Christ, by God's

    loving Spirit, even when we are not present with another in our own flesh.

    Welcome and Announcements

    Confession and Forgiveness

    P: In the Name of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.

    C: Amen

    P: The Lord knows the burden of our sin, how could we hide?


    C: you know me, sometimes I do not understand my own actions. I

    know the right thing to do, but I do exactly the opposite. I can will

    myself to do the right thing and my body will not do it. It is as though

    sin dwells within me. And even now I try to blame the sin instead of

    taking responsibility myself. Rescue me Lord from the sin I know in

    my heart. Save me Lord from the sin I conceal from myself.

    P: The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in

    steadfast love. We can give thanks to God through Jesus Christ our Lord,

    because of the blood of God’s own covenant we are set free from our sin.

    It is for Christ's sake that our sins are forgiven. Now free we may take on

    his yoke, and learn from him, and find rest. To the glory of the Father,

    and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.

    C: Amen.

  • Kyrie

    Prayer of the Day

    You are great, O God, and greatly to be praised. You have made us for

    yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you. Grant that we

    may believe in you, call upon you, know you, and serve you, through

    your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.


    READING: Romans 7: 15-25a

    15I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but

    I do the very thing I hate. 16Now if I do what I do not want, I agree that

    the law is good. 17But in fact it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells

    within me. 18For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in

    my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. 19For I do not do the

    good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do. 20Now if I do what I

    do not want, it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me.

    21So I find it to be a law that when I want to do what is good, evil lies

    close at hand. 22For I delight in the law of God in my inmost self, 23but I

    see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind, making

    me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24Wretched man

  • that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25aThanks be to

    God through Jesus Christ our Lord!

    The word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.

    Gospel Acclamation:

    GOSPEL: Matthew 11: 16-19, 25-30

    [Jesus spoke to the crowd saying:] 16“To what will I compare this

    generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to

    one another,

    17‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance;

    we wailed, and you did not mourn.’ 18For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a

    demon’; 19the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look,

    a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet

    wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.”

    25At that time Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and

    earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the

    intelligent and have revealed them to infants; 26yes, Father, for such was

    your gracious will. 27All things have been handed over to me by my

    Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows

  • the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal


    28“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens,

    and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for

    I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

    The Holy Gospel according Matthew the 10th chapter. Glory, to you, O Lord

    The gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, O Christ.

    Hymn of the Day: I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say ELW 611

    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 in him a resting-place,

    and he has made me glad.

    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.

  • 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 trav'ling days are done.
