The Lord’s Day, March 24, 2024

10:30 AM Morning Service

 

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you;
righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

Zechariah 9:9

 

Prelude

 

Welcome and Announcements

 

The Voluntary for Silent Prayer

 

*Call to Worship: Psalm 118:22, 24-26

Minister:   The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.

People:      This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

Minister:   This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

People:      Save us, we pray, O LORD; O LORD, we pray, give us success!

Unison:     Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!

 

*Hymn of Adoration: “This Is the Day the Lord Has Made” ( No. 389)

 

1 This is the day the Lord has made;
he calls the hours his own;
let heav'n rejoice, let earth be glad,
and praise surround the throne.

2 Today he rose and left the dead,
and Satan's empire fell;
today the saints his triumphs spread,
and all his wonders tell.

3 Hosanna to th'anointed King,
to David's holy Son!
Help us, O Lord; descend and bring
salvation from the throne.
4 Blest be the Lord, who comes to men
with messages of grace;
who comes in God his Father's name
to save our sinful race.

5 Hosanna in the highest strains
the church on earth can raise!
The highest heav'ns in which he reigns
shall give him nobler praise.

 

 

*Prayer of Adoration and Congregational Invocation

 

O God, Praise waits for you, and to render it is my noblest exercise. This is your due from all your creatures, for all your works display your attributes and fulfill your designs. You are King of kings and Lord of lords. At your pleasure empires rise and fall. All your works praise you and your saints bless you. Let me be numbered with the holy ones, resemble them in character and condition, and sit with them at Jesus’ feet. In Jesus’ name we come to you. Amen.

 

*Confession of Faith: The Westminster Shorter Catechism, Q 26

 

Minister:   How does Christ execute the office of a king?

 

People:      Christ executes the office of a king, in subduing us to himself, in ruling and defending us, and in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies.

Unison:     Thanks be to God!

 

 

*Gloria (Tune: Hyfrydol)

God of glory, power, mercy, all creation praises thee;

We, thy creatures, would adore thee now and through eternity.

Saved to magnify thy goodness, grant us strength to do thy will;

With our acts as with our voices thy commandments to fulfill.

 

New Testament Reading: Matthew 21:1-11

 

Hymn of Preparation: “All Glory, Laud, and Honor” (No. 235)

 

1 All glory, laud, and honor
to thee, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring!
Thou art the King of Israel,
thou David's royal Son,
who in the Lord's name comest,
the King and blessed One!

2 The people of the Hebrews
with palms before thee went;
our praise and prayer and anthems
before thee we present:
to thee, before thy passion,
they sang their hymns of praise;
to thee, now high exalted,
our melody we raise.
3 Thou didst accept their praises;
accept the prayers we bring,
who in all good delightest,
thou good and gracious King!
All glory, laud, and honor
to thee, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring!

 

 

Prayers of the People

 

Minister:   Father, we look back to the day when your Son rode into Jerusalem and was greeted by loud cries of “Hosanna!” But we also look forward to the day when we, with a great multitude that no one can number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, stand before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in our hands, and cry out with a loud voice,

People:      “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

Minister:   And our hearts will worship with the angels as they fall on their faces before the throne and worship God, saying,

People:      “Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”

 

Pastoral Prayer

 

Words of Encouragement

 

Minister:   The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. (Psalm 118:14)

Unison:     Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!

 

 

*Hymn of Thanksgiving: “O for a Thousand Tongue to Sing” (No. 164)

 

1 O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace.

2 My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread through all the earth abroad
the honors of thy name.

3 Jesus, the name that charms our fears,
that bids our sorrows cease;
'tis music in the sinner's ears,
'tis life and health and peace.

4 He breaks the pow'r of reigning sin,
he sets the pris'ner free;
his blood can make the foulest clean,
his blood availed for me.

5 He speaks and, list'ning to his voice,
new life the dead receive;
the mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
the humble poor believe.

6 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
your loosen'd tongues employ;
ye blind, behold your Savior come;
and leap, ye lame, for joy.

 

 

Worship of God through Tithes and Offerings

 

*Doxology (Tune: Old Hundredth)

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heavenly host:

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen

 

Prayer of Thanksgiving and Dedication

 

*Reading of The Holy Scriptures: Matthew 9:27-34

Minister:   This is the Word of God.

 

Unison:     Thanks be to God for his Word!

 

*The Prayer for Illumination

 

Sermon: “Son of David” (Rev. Seth Wallace)

 

*Hymn of Response: “Hail to the Lord’s Anointed” (No. 311)

 

1 Hail to the Lord's Anointed,
great David's greater Son!
Hail, in the time appointed,
his reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free,
to take away transgression,
and rule in equity.

2 He comes with comfort speedy
to those who suffer wrong;
to help the poor and needy,
and bid the weak be strong;
to give them songs for sighing,
their darkness turn to light,
whose souls, condemned and dying,
were precious in his sight.

3 He shall come down like showers
upon the fruitful earth;
and love, joy, hope, like flowers,
spring in his path to birth;
before him on the mountains
shall peace, the herald, go;
and righteousness, in fountains,
from hill to valley flow.

4 O'er ev'ry foe victorious,
he on his throne shall rest,
from age to age more glorious,
all-blessing and all-blessed;
the tide of time shall never
his covenant remove;
his name shall stand forever–
that name to us is Love.
