Come and show Your power as in days of old,

Burn up the idols of wood and stone,
Lord, Lord, let Your fire fall.
We come before You, Father, we offer You our lives,
Our hearts are on Your altar, consume the sacrifice.

Lord, Lord let Your fire fall;

Come and show Your power in our midst today.

Purify Your people, set our hearts aflame;
Give us holy passion, come and glorify Your name.

BENEDICTION
SONG: “Beautiful Savior

1) Beautiful Savior, King of creation, Son of God and Son of Man! Truly I’d love thee, Truly I’d serve thee, Light of my soul, my joy, my crown.

2) Fair are the meadows, Fair are the woodlands, Robed in flowers of blooming spring; Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, He makes our sorrowing spirit sing.

3) Fair is the sunshine, Fair is the moonlight, Bright the sparkling stars on high; Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer, than all the angels in the sky.

4) Beautiful Savior, Lord of the nations, Son of God and Son of Man! Glory and honor, Praise, adoration, Now and forevermore be thine!
