Heart Prep for Sunday, March 24th, 2013 (Palm Sunday)

The text for this week will be Isaiah 52:1-10, in which God’s people rejoice as God makes himself known in Jerusalem. This text contains many hints of Palm Sunday, and our worship will focus on that event – and on the joy of breaking forth in song:

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed

Luke 19:41-44 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

Ride on to Die Medley
Ride on to Die
Ride On, Ride On in Majesty – We do this to the tune of ‘I Wonder as I Wander’

Luke 19:33-40 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

Hosanna Medley
All Glory Laud and Honor
Hosanna, Loud Hosanna (Couldn’t find a very good one of the second hymn in this medley, but at least it was cute!)

Hosanna (Blessed is He Who Comes in the Name of the Lord)

Isaiah 52:7-10 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” 8The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice; together they sing for joy; for eye to eye they see the return of the LORD to Zion. 9Break forth together into singing, you waste places of Jerusalem, for the LORD has comforted his people; he has redeemed Jerusalem. 10The LORD has bared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

How Great is Our God

Praise Him, Praise Him
And just because I like this lady: Praise Him, Praise Him

Hosanna – Andrew Peterson

How Lovely on the Mountains This familiar song, in the verses chosen by this artist, is taken directly from our text, Isaiah 52:7-10 – see lyrics below

Break Forth in Joy

The Trees of the Field
Hosanna (Praise is Rising)

How Lovely on the Mountains (the lyrics we will use)
How lovely on the mountains
Are the feet of Him
Who brings good news good news
Announcing peace
Proclaiming news of happiness
Our God reigns our God reigns

Our God reigns our God reigns
Our God reigns our God reigns

You watchmen lift your voices joyfully as one
Shout for your King your King
See eye to eye the Lord restoring Zion
Your God reigns your God reigns

Waste places of Jerusalem
Break forth with joy
We are redeemed redeemed
The Lord has saved and comforted His people
Your God reigns your God reigns

Ends of the earth
See the salvation of your God
Jesus is Lord is Lord
Before the nations He has bared His holy arm
Your God reigns your God reigns
