All Who Are Thirsty

Brenton Brown, Glenn Robertson

All who are thirsty,
All who are weak,
Come to the Fountain,
Dip your heart in the Stream of life;
Let the pain and the sorrow
Be washed away
In the waves of His mercy,
As deep cries out to deep.

We sing,
Come, Lord Jesus, Come!
Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

Won’t You come,

Won’t You come;
Nothing but Your will for me,
I am only free when You come.

Isaiah 2 (Therefore With Joy)

Music: R. L.

Therefore, with joy shall ye draw water
Out of the wells of salvation
And in that day, shall ye say,
Praise the Lord.

Chorus 1
Call upon His name,
Declare His doings among the people,
Make mention that His name is exalted.
Cry out and shout,
Thou inhabitant of Zion,
For great is the Holy One of Israel
In the midst of Thee!

And in that day, O thou shalt say,
O Lord, I will praise Thee:
For all Thine anger is turned,
You comfort me.
Behold, my God is my salvation;
And I will trust, and not be fearful:
For the Lord is my strength and my song;
And He also is become my salvation.

Chorus 2
Sing unto the Lord;
For He hath done excellent things:
And yes, this is known in all the earth.
Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion:
For great is the Holy One of Israel
In the midst of thee!

Before The Throne of God
(chorus of Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus)

Words: Charitie Lees Bancroft
Music: Vikki Cook

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong, a perfect plea:
A great High Priest, whose name is Love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart;
I know that while in heaven He stands,
No tongue can bid me thence depart,
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look, and see Him there,
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me,
To look on Him and pardon me.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth
Will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb,
My perfect, spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace!
Now one with Him, I cannot die,
My soul is purchased by His blood;
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ, my Savior and my God,
With Christ, my Savior and my God.


“The Revelation of Jesus as the Light of the World”

Message given by Rex Beck on May 8, 2022

John 8:12
Again 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.”

The Warfare

John 8:13
So the Pharisees said to him, “You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true.”

John 8:48
The Jews answered him, “Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?”

John 8:52–53
52 The Jews said to him, “Now we know that you have a demon! Abraham died, as did the prophets, yet you say, ‘If anyone keeps my word, he will never taste death.’ 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? And the prophets died! Who do you make yourself out to be?”

John 8:59
So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.

Promised Freedom

John 8:31–32
31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

John 8:36
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

The Effects of Light — Life and Knowledge

John 8:12
Again 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.”

2 Corinthians 4:6
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Eventually We Become Light

Ephesians 5:8–9
…for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true) …

Matthew 5:14
 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
