In The Secret

By: Chris Tomlin

In the secret, in the quiet place,
In the stillness You are there.
In the secret, in the quiet hour,
I wait only for You,
‘Cause I want to know You more.

I want to know You,
I want to hear Your voice,
I want to know You more;
I want to touch You,
I want to see Your face,
I want to know You more.

I am reaching for the highest goal
That I might receive the prize;
Pressing onward, pushing every
Hindrance aside, out of my way,
‘Cause I want to know You more.

I want to know You more,
Jesus Christ, my Lord…

O Jesus, Jesus, Dearest Lord

Words: Frederick William Faber; chorus by Russell Kelso Carter
Music: Taubert

O Jesus, Jesus, dearest Lord!
Forgive me if I say,
For very love, Thy sacred name
A thousand times a day.

O Jesus, Lord, with me abide;
I rest in Thee, whate’er betide;
Thy gracious smile is my reward;
I love, I love Thee, Lord!

I love Thee so I know not how
My transports to control;
Thy love is like a burning fire
Within my very soul.

For Thou to me art all in all;
My honor and my wealth;
My heart’s desire, my body’s strength,
My soul’s eternal health.

Burn, burn, O love, within my heart,
Burn fiercely night and day,
Till all the dross of earthly loves
Is burned, and burned away.

O light in darkness, joy in grief,
O heaven’s life on earth;
Jesus, my love, my treasure, who
Can tell what Thou art worth?

What limit is there to this love?
Thy flight, where wilt Thou stay?
On, on! our Lord is sweeter far
Today than yesterday.

Message given by Peter McNaughton on May 2, 2021

(Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, we were not able to record this Sunday’s message. We apologize for the inconvenience)

Matthew 16:16-18
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.”

Acts 9:5-6
5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” And He said, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, 6 but get up and enter the city, and it will be told to you what you must do.”

Revelation 1:10-13
10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet 11 saying, “Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.”

12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man,

Revelation 1:20
As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
