While our gathering location remains closed due to the pandemic, Hope Community is producing a weekly online experience to compliment our Sunday gathering. Listen in, sing along, pray together.

The "Teacher" in the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes presents an un-optimistic analysis of everything in our material world. This week we analyze his claim that the pursuit of pleasure is "chasing after the wind." ~


How Can I Keep from Singing?

Amazing Grace / for king & country

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found, was blind but now I see
I see, O— I see

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed
Believed, O— believed
Now I see, I see, O— I see

When we've been there ten thousand years bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing His praise then when we first begun
Then when we first begun
Begun, O— begun
Now I see, I see, O— I see


Redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb

I went down to the crimson river, left my burdens on the shore
I went down a sinner, came up a saint, died with Christ, now I'm reborn

Yes, He washed me in His mercy and He cleansed me with His blood
Now I stand complete I have been set free, I found life there in the flood

Not the same, I am changed, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
By His grace I am saved, I'm His child, forever I am
Hallelujah! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb

Now I have the living water from the well that won't run dry
All the pangs of life have been satisfied by the precious blood of Christ

Not the same, I am changed, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
By His grace I am saved, I'm His child, forever I am
Hallelujah! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb

When it's time to cross that river I will shine in glorious light
When He calls me home I'll fall at His throne and forever worship Christ
And forever worship Christ
I'll forever worship Christ
I'll forever worship Christ

Not the same, I am changed, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
By His grace I am saved, I'm His child, forever I am
Hallelujah! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb

Not the same, I am changed, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
By His grace I am saved, I'm His child, forever I am
Hallelujah! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb

Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever
Amen

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus / christy nockels

Come, Thou long expected Jesus, born to set Thy people free
From our fears and sins release us, let us find our rest in Thee
Israel's strength and consolation, hope of all the earth Thou art
Dear desire of every nation, joy of every longing heart

Born Thy people to deliver, born a child and yet a king
Born to reign in us forever, now Thy gracious kingdom bring
By Thine own eternal Spirit rule in all our hearts alone
By Thine all sufficient merit, raise us to Thy glorious throne

By Thine all sufficient merit, raise us to Thy gracious throne
