Opening Hymn: Here I Am to Worship

Verse 1
Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness.
Opened my eyes let me see.
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You.

[Chorus]
So here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You’re my God,
You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me.

Verse 2
King of all days, Oh so highly exalted, 
Glorious in heaven above.
Humbly you came to the earth You created.
All for love’s sake became poor.  [Chorus]

Bridge
I’ll never know how much it cost 
To see my sin upon that cross 
[Repeat]

[Chorus x 2]

Gospel Reading – John 8:12-20

Gospel Reading John 8:12–20

12Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” 13So the Pharisees said to him, “You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true.” 14Jesus answered, “Even if I do bear witness about myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going, but you do not know where I come from or where I am going. 15You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one. 16Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Father who sent me. 17In your Law it is written that the testimony of two men is true. 18I am the one who bears witness about myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness about me.” 19They said to him therefore, “Where is your Father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also.” 20These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple; but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.

Sermon

Response to the Message – Hymn – Jesus Messiah

He became sin who knew no sin
That we might become His righteousness
He humbled Himself and carried the cross
Love so amazing love so amazing

[Chorus]
Jesus Messiah Name above all names
Blessed Redeemer Emmanuel
The Rescue for sinners The Ransom from heaven
Jesus Messiah Lord of all

His body the bread His blood the wine
Broken and poured out all for love
The whole earth trembled and the veil was torn
Love so amazing love so amazing
[Chorus]

All our hope is in You
All our hope is in You
All the glory to You God
The Light of the world
[Chorus]

Jesus Messiah
Lord of all
The Lord of all
The Lord of all

Closing Hymn: I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light – LSB #411

1 I want to walk as a child of the light.
I want to follow Jesus.
God set the stars to give light to the world.
The star of my life is Jesus. Refrain

Refrain In Him there is no darkness at all.
The night and the day are both alike.
The Lamb is the light of the city of God.
Shine in my heart, Lord Jesus.

2 I want to see the brightness of God.
I want to look at Jesus.
Clear Sun of Righteousness, shine on my path,
And show me the way to the Father. Refrain

3 I’m looking for the coming of Christ.
I want to be with Jesus.
When we have run with patience the race,
We shall know the joy of Jesus. Refrain
