Call to Worship 宣召

Psalm 103:1-5

   Bless the LORD, O my soul,
       and all that is within me,
       bless his holy name!
   Bless the LORD, O my soul,
       and forget not all his benefits,
   who forgives all your iniquity,
       who heals all your diseases,

我的心哪!你要称颂耶和华;
在我里面的一切,都要称颂他的圣名。
我的心哪!你要称颂耶和华;
不可忘记他的一切恩惠。
他赦免你的一切罪孽, 医治你的一切疾病;

   who redeems your life from the pit,
       who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
   who satisfies you with good
       so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

他救赎你的性命脱离死亡,
以慈爱和怜悯作你的冠冕;
他以福乐使你的心愿满足,
以致你好象鹰一般恢复青春的活力。

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

Merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart and soul and mind and strength.
We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

仁慈的主,
我們懺悔我們時常在思想,言語和行為上得罪你,
因我們所做的事,因我們所未完成的事。
我們沒有用我們全身心力量來愛你 ;
我們沒有像愛自己一樣愛我們的鄰居

In your mercy, forgive what we have been,
help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be,
so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your holy name.

用你的仁慈,原諒我們的曾經,
幫助我們改變我們,指引我們,
讓我們可以因如你同行而喜悅,
直到榮耀你的聖名。

Assurance of Pardon 得寬恕的確據

Psalm 103:8-12

   The LORD is merciful and gracious,
       slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
   He will not always chide,
       nor will he keep his anger forever.
   He does not deal with us according to our sins,
       nor repay us according to our iniquities.

耶和华有怜悯,有恩典,
不轻易发怒,并且有丰盛的慈爱。
他不长久责备,
也不永远怀怒。
他没有按着我们的罪过待我们,
也没有照着我们的罪孽报应我们。

   For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
       so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
   as far as the east is from the west,
       so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

天离地有多高,
他的慈爱向敬畏他的人也有多大。
东离西有多远,
他使我们的过犯离我们也有多远。

Your Love is Extravagant

Darrell Evans

Your love is extravagant
Your friendship, it is intimate
I feel like moving to the rhythm of Your grace
Your fragrance is intoxicating in our secret place
Your love is extravagant

Spread wide in the arms of Christ is the love that covers sin
No greater love have I ever known You considered me a friend
Capture my heart again

Spread wide in the arms of Christ is the love that covers sin
No greater love have I ever known; You considered me a friend

Capture my heart again
Your love is extravagant
Your friendship, it is intimate

Beauty for Ashes

Kendall Combes, Shane Barnard

Beauty for ashes
A garment of praise for my heaviness
Beauty for ashes
Take this heart of stone and make it Yours, Yours

I delight myself in the Richest of Fare
Trading all that I've had for all that is better
A garment of praise for my heaviness
You are the greatest taste
You're the richest of fair
