Offertory – September 23, 2018

Morning Service – For the morning service, I will be playing “Hallelujah! What a Savior” by Philip P Bliss (this arrangement by Carol Tornquist © 2003 Word Music, LLC). This song is supposedly to be played “boldly” and, truthfully, that’s the only way it can be played. It has dramatically low notes in the bass that help to provide the bold sound while the treble cleft is filled with full chords that help to accent the melody. While this song is not one of my favorite hymns, the words are so bold and call us to shout out in worship to our Savior for all He has done.

Here are the lyrics:

“Man of Sorrows!” what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
“Full atonement!” can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in Heav’n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Evening Service – For the evening service, I have chosen “ There is None Like You” by Lenny LeBlanc (© 1991 Integrity’s Hosanna! Music, #109 in the Baptist Hymnal © 2008 LifeWay Worship). I chose this song because of its calming melody and reassuring words. We all go through times in our lives when things seem to be out of control, but when we are STILL and focus on Jesus and who HE is, we see that there is no one like Him and HE is the only one who can touch our hearts.

Here are the lyrics:

There is none like You.
No one else can touch my heart like You do.
I could search for all eternity long
And find there is none like You. (Repeat)

Your mercy flows like a river wide
And healing comes from Your hands.
Suffering children are safe in Your arms.
There is none like You.

There is none like You
No one else can touch my heart like You do.
I could search for all eternity long
And find there is none like You.

Your mercy flows like a river wide
And healing comes from Your hands.
Suffering children are safe in Your arms.
There is none like You.

There is none like You.
No one else can touch my heart like You do.
I could search for all eternity long
And find there is none like You.
