2nd Sunday in Lent

Established 1849

“For the Father seeketh such to worship him.” John 4: 23

Father (Jesus, Spirit), we love You
We worship and adore You,
Glorify Thy name in all the earth.
Glorify Thy name, Glorify Thy name,
Glorify Thy name in all the earth!

Evening Psalm: Psalm 27:4-8

One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.

Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek.

O Lord, You’re beautiful,
Your face is all I seek;
And when Your eyes are on this child
Your grace abounds to me.

O Lord, please light the fire,
That once burned bright and clear;
Replace the lamp of my first love
That burns with holy fear.

Prayer of Invocation

New Testament Lesson: Luke 10:38–42

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!"

"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."

Meditation: “The One Needful Thing”

Song of Response:

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!

His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

Bible Prayer: Psalm 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
The LORD Almighty is with us…”

Time of Silent Prayer

Jesus keep me near the cross, there a precious fountain,
Free to all, a healing stream, flows from Calvary’s mountain.
In the cross, in the cross be my glory ever,
Till my ransomed soul shall find rest beyond the river.

Near the cross! O Lamb of God, bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day with its shadow o’er me.
In the cross, in the cross be my glory ever,
Till my ransomed soul shall find rest beyond the river.
