Abba

Abba by Jonathan David Helser

You're more real than
The ground I'm standing on
You're more real than
The wind in my lungs

Your thoughts define me
You're inside me
You're my reality

Abba, I belong to You
Abba, I belong to You

You're closer than the 
Skin on my bones
You're closer than the
Song on my tongue

Your thoughts define me
You're inside me
You're my reality

Abba, I belong to You
Abba, I belong to You
Abba, I belong to You
Abba 

Come, thou Fount of every blessing,

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 mount! I'm fixed upon it, 
mount of thy redeeming love. 

Here I raise mine Ebenezer; 
hither by thy help I'm come; 
and I hope, by thy good pleasure, 
safely to arrive at home. 
Jesus sought me when a stranger, 
wandering from the fold of God; 
he, to rescue me from danger, 
interposed 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. 

Scripture Reading Sunday, January 31, 2016



Our Epistle Lesson comes from First Corinthians 13:1-13

If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a

noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and

understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to

remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3

possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have

love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant 5 or

rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6

rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. 7

things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for

tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. 9 For we

know only in part, and we prophesy only in part; 10 but when the complete

comes, the partial will come to an end. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a

child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I

put an end to childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we

will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I

have been fully known. 13 And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and

the greatest of these is love.

If I give away all my

it does not

It bears all things, believes all

THE WORD OF GOD FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD!

Lord, I Want to Be a Christian -589



Lord, I want to be a Christian in-a my heart, in-a my heart,

Lord, I want to be a Christian in-a my heart, in-a my heart.

In-a my heart, (in-a my heart),

In-a my heart, (in-a my heart),

Lord, I want to be a Christian in-a my heart, in-a my heart. (in-a my heart.)

Lord, I want to be more loving in-a my heart, in-a my heart,

Lord, I want to be more loving in-a my heart, in-a my heart.

In-a my heart, (in-a my heart),

In-a my heart, (in-a my heart),

Lord, I want to be more loving in-a my heart, in-a my heart. (in-a my heart.)

Lord, I want to be like Jesus in-a my heart, in-a my heart,

Lord, I want to be like Jesus in-a my heart, in-a my heart.

In-a my heart, (in-a my heart),

In-a my heart, (in-a my heart),

Lord, I want to be like Jesus in-a my heart, in-a my heart. (in-a my heart.)

Here at Thy Table, Lord- 384



Here at thy table, Lord, this sacred hour,

O let us feel thee near, in loving power;

calling our thoughts away from self and sin.

As to thy banquet hall we enter in.

Sit at the feast, dear Lord, break thou the bread;

fill thou the cup that brings life to the dead;

that we may find in thee, pardon and peace;

and from all bondage win a full release.

Come then, O holy Christ, feed us, we pray;

touch with thy pierced hand each common day;

making this earthly life full of thy grace,

till in the home of heaven we find our place.

O, How I Love Jesus- 99



There is a name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth;

it sounds like music in my ear, the sweetest name on earth.

O, how I love Jesus. O, how I love Jesus,

O, how I love Jesus, because he first loved me!

It tells me of a Savior’s love, who died to set me free;

it tells me of his precious blood, the sinner’s perfect plea.

O, how I love Jesus. O, how I love Jesus,

O, how I love Jesus, because he first loved me!

It tells of one whose loving heart can feel my deepest woe,

who in each sorrow bears a part, that non can bear below.

O, how I love Jesus. O, how I love Jesus,

O, how I love Jesus, because he first loved me!
