Call to Worship 宣召

Psalm 诗篇 150

Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary;
   praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
   praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound;
   praise him with lute and harp!

你们要赞美耶和华。要在 神的圣所赞美他,
要在他显能力的穹苍下赞美他。
要因他大能的作为赞美他,
要因他无限的伟大赞美他。
要吹角赞美他,要鼓瑟弹琴赞美他。

Praise him with tambourine and dance;
   praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;
   praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

要击鼓跳舞赞美他,
要弹奏丝弦的乐器和吹箫赞美他。
要用声音洪亮的钹赞美他,要用声音铿锵的钹赞美他。
凡有气息的,都要赞美耶和华。你们要赞美耶和华。

The Nicene Creed 尼西亞信經

We believe in one God,
   the Father almighty,
   maker of heaven and earth,
   of all things visible and invisible.
   
我们信独一上帝,全能的父,
是创造天地和有形无形之万物的。

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
   the only Son of God,
   begotten from the Father before all ages,
       God from God,
       Light from Light,
       true God from true God,
   begotten, not made;
   of the same essence as the Father.
 
我们信主耶稣基督,上帝的独生子,在万世以先为父所生,出于上帝而为上帝,出于光而为光,出于真神而为真神,被生而非受造,与父一性;

Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
   he came down from heaven;
   he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit
       and the virgin Mary,
   and was made human.
   He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
   he suffered and was buried.

万物都借着他受造;为救我们世人从天降临,因圣灵从童女马利亚成了肉身而为人;又在本丢彼拉多手下为我们钉在十字架上,受害,葬埋;

   The third day he rose again,
       according to the Scriptures.
   He ascended to heaven
   and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
   He will come again with glory
   to judge the living and the dead.
   His kingdom will never end.

照圣经的话第三天复活;升天,坐在父的右 边;将来必从威荣中降临,审判活人、死人;他的国度永无穷尽。

And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
   the Lord, the giver of life.
   He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
       and with the Father and the Son
       is worshiped and glorified.
   He spoke through the prophets.

我们信赐生命的主圣灵,从父、子而出,与父、子同样受尊敬,受荣耀;他曾借着众先知说话。

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.
We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and to life in the world to come.
Amen.

我们信使徒所立的独一圣而公的教会。我们承认为赦罪所立的独一圣洗。我们望死人复活和来世的永生。
阿门。

Confession of Sins 承認過犯

Holy and merciful God,
in your presence we confess our sinfulness, our shortcomings,
and our offenses against you.
You alone know how often we have sinned
in wandering from your ways,
in wasting your gifts, in forgetting your love.

神圣满有怜悯的神啊, 在你面前我们向你悔改,为我们的罪性,
我们的不足和我们轻慢你的地方.
唯独你知道我们如何时常的犯罪得罪你,偏离了你的道,
浪费了你的恩赐,忘记了你的大爱.

Have mercy on us, O Lord,
for we are ashamed and sorry for all we have done to displease you.
Forgive our sins, and help us to live in your light
and walk in your ways, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

哦主啊求你怜恤我们,
我们为自己所做的不讨你喜欢的事感到羞耻和愧疚,赦免我们的罪,
帮助我们住在你的光中,行走在你的道路上,
借着我们的救主耶稣基督.阿门.

Assurance of Pardon 得寬恕的確據

from Acts 使徒行传 13:38; Ephesians 以弗所书 1:7

Through Jesus Christ forgiveness of sins
is proclaimed to you.
In Christ we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of our trespasses,
according to the riches of his grace.

所以弟兄们,你们当知道,赦罪之道是由这位耶稣传给你们的。
在你们靠摩西律法不能称义的一切事上,
我们在他爱子里,
借着他的血蒙了救赎,过犯得到赦免,都是按着他丰盛的恩典。

O Praise The Name (Anástasis)

Dean Ussher, Marty Sampson, Benjamin Hastings

I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me
I see His wounds, His hands, His feet
My Savior on that cursed tree

His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph's tomb
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone

O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Then on the third at break of dawn
The Son of heaven rose again
O trampled death where is your sting?
The angels roar for Christ the King

O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

He shall return in robes of white
The blazing Son shall pierce the night
And I will rise among the saints
My gaze transfixed on Jesus' face

O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God
O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Come Thou Fount 萬福源頭

Public Domain. By Robert Robinson, John Wyeth

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

全能真神,萬福源頭,懇求使我常歌頌,

主賜恩惠如川長流,應當頌讚主恩寵,

願主教我美妙樂章,猶如天使主前唱,

讚美救恩如山穩妥,救贖慈愛無限量。

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Here there by Thy great help I've 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

我要立石記主恩典,蒙主幫助到如今,

尚望恩主一直引導,安抵天家蒙福蔭,

耶穌看我如羊失群,遠離父家走迷途,

主來救我脫離危險,流出寶血洗罪污。

Oh, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be
Let that 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, oh, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

每日主賜恩典無量,負主恩債難報償,

願主恩惠如鏈相牽,維繫我心與主連,

我深知道心易放蕩,遠離父家慕虛華,

今獻身心求加印記,永作主民在父家。

Communion on Baptism Sunday | September 27

Next Sunday 9/27/20, we will be holding a baptism ceremony during service for youth group members. We ask that you prepare the sacramental elements of bread and wine as best as you can, and have them ready, and in reach, Sunday morning, so we can flow right to them, after the sermon.

  • For the bread, we ask you use the closest thing to a bread-like substance.
  • It may be leavened bread, crackers, pita, chips, (reasonable) cereal, rice-based food—essentially something that will be close to taking the form of bread without distracting you from it’s imagery in taste and form.
  • For the wine, ideally a product of a fruit, that is red in color is desirable.
  • It may be wine or some kind of fruit juice. (Ideally red.)

Our staff have extra communion supplies if you are in need, so please just let us know at admin@kingscrossnyc.org and we’ll have someone drop off communion supplies to your home.
