O For a Thousand Tongues to SingCarl G. Glaser • O for a thousand tongues to singMy great Redeemer’s praise,The glories of my God and King, the triumphs of His grace. • My gracious Master and my God, assist me to proclaim,To spread through all the earth abroad the honors of Thy name. • Jesus! The name that charms our fears,That bids our sorrows cease,‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears, ‘tis life and health and peace. • He breaks the power of cancelled sin, He sets the prisoner free,His blood can make the foulest clean, His blood availed for me.

Responsive ReadingPsalm 35:18-22, 27-28 Leader: I will give you thanks in the great congregation: People: I will praise you among much people. Leader: Do not let them that are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: People: Neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause. Leader: For they speak not peace: People: But they devise deceitful matters against those that are quiet in the land. Leader: Yes, they opened their mouth wide against me, People: And said Aha, aha, our eye has seen it. Leader: You have seen, O Lord, do not keep silence: People: O Lord, be not far from me. Leader: Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favor my righteous cause: yes, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant. People: And my tongue shall speak of your righteousness and of your praise all the day long. Mount of Olives
New Testament Reading1 James 3:1-13 My brethren, do not be many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though so great, and driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, wherever the captain lists. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasts great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindles! And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
New Testament Reading1 James 3:1-13 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But no man can tame the tongue; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith we bless God, even the Father; and therewith we curse men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Does a fountain send forth at the same place sweet [water] and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So [can] no fountain yield both salt water and fresh. Who [is] a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
Come Now is the Time to Worship – Brian Doerksen Come, now is the time to worship,Come, now is the time to give your heart,Come, just as you are to worship,Come, just as you are before your God, Come!One day every tongue will confess You are God.One day every knee will bow,Still the greatest treasure remains for thoseWho gladly choose You now.

Indescribable Chris Tomlin From the highest of heights to the depth of the sea,Creation’s revealing Your majesty,From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring,Every creature’s unique in the song that it sings, all exclaiming, Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go?Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow?Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light?Yet concealed it to bring us the coolness of night?None can fathom, Chorus: Indescribable, uncontainable,You placed the stars in the skyAnd You know them by name,You are amazing God,All powerful, untamable,Awestruck we fall to our kneesAnd we humbly proclaim,You are amazing, God. (2x) CCLI License #2802949

Come, Thou Fount of Every BlessingJohn Wyeth • Come Thou Fount of every blessing,Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;Streams of mercy never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise.Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above;Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it, Mount of Thy redeeming love. • Hitherto Thy love has blest me; Thou has brought me to this place.And I know Thy hand will bring me safely home by Thy good grace.Jesus sought me when a stranger wandering from the fold of God.He, to rescue, me from danger, interposed His precious blood. • O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be!Let Thy goodness like a fetter bind my wandering heart to Thee!Prone to wonder, Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love:Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for Thy courts above.

In This Place of PraiseJody Gafford We come to the brazen alter with thanksgiving in our heart.For the precious gift you’ve given us, O Lord, You paid the cost.Our sins we will confess them; You are anxious to forgive.We turn from our soulish ways so that in You, we might live. As we come to the Laver, Lord, Your cleansing we might know.We approach You with a contrite heart in humbleness, bowed low.We thank You for Your cleansing, we are now white as snow,Made pure in Christ’s atonement, so that You, we might know. We’ll eat of your showbread, Lord, and learn of all your ways,It will be our Holy sustenance for the rest of our days.While in Your very presence, Lord, in Your Name, we pray,Vapors of Your Holy Incense rise form this place of praise. Chorus: Our voices raised in this place of praise, With a sacrifice of thanksgiving for the gift of grace You’ve paid. Our voices raised in this place of praise, Oh the awesomeness of knowing You, we sing in this place of praise. CCLI License #2802949
In This Place of PraiseJody Gafford In the Holy Place we come to the lanterns of your light,We ask You, Holy Spirit, please give to us Your Sight,We need Your Holy Counsel to walk as You would walk,We need Your Holy Spirit, Lord, to stand upon the Rock.

Blessed Be Your Name – Matt Redman Blessed be Your Name in the land that is plentiful,Where Your streams of abundance flow,Blessed be Your Name. Blessed be Your Name when I’m found in the desert place,Though I walk through the wilderness,Blessed be Your Name. Blessed be Your NameWhen the sun’s shining down on me,When the world’s “all as it should be”,Blessed be Your Name. Blessed be Your Name on the road marked with suffering,Though there’s pain in the offering,Blessed be Your Name. Chorus: Every blessing You pour out I’ll turn back to praise.When the darkness closes in, Lord, still I will say,“Blessed be the Name of the Lord, blessed be Your Name.Blessed be the Name of the Lord, Blessed be Your glorious Name.” Bridge: You give and take away, You give and take away.My heart will choose to say, “Lord, Blessed be Your Name.” CCLI License #2802949
1. The Sins of the Tongue • Albert Einstein(believe it or not) • Baby • Some goofy ladyfrom somewhere • Some deer with a bad attitude 2. 4. 3.
Sins of the Tongue • Sins of the Tongue refer to any sins done with speaking; in the New Testament the Greek word “glossa” is translated tongue which means “language” • We must watch what our type of language is when we speak • We also must watch what our tone is when we speak as we learn more from the tone of what someone says that sometimes the actual words • Of course body language tells us even more than the words when we speak • The sin can be what we say, how we say it and what we are thinking when we say it
Sins with the Tongue • Gossip – “Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaks deceit: one speaks peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart he lays his wait” (Jer. 9:8) • Lying/backbiting – “Lying lips are abomination to the Lord” (Pro. 12:22a) • Slander – “He that utters a slander is a fool (Pro. 10:18b) • Complaining, whining, griping, such as the Israelites in the wilderness with Moses (Exodus) • Flattery – “He that goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets: therefore do not meddle with him that flatters with his lips” (Pro. 22:18)
Sins with the Tongue • Disrespect for people in authority – Jesus said when shown a Roman coin, “Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s” • Foul language – “Better is the poor who walks in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips and is a fool (Pro. 20:15) • Malice/bitterness/hatred – can be spoken but comes from a wicked heart or negative mental attitude – “He that hides hatred with lying lips is a fool (Pro. 10:18a)
Bible Stories about the Tongue • Look at what Job’s friends wanted him to do – to curse God (with his tongue) and die, and yet Job never cursed God although he certainly questioned God, later receiving a major answer from God in the form of many questions; Job said, “My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit” (Job 27:4); Eliju the younger and wiser of his friends, said, “My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly” (Job 33:3)
Bible Stories about the Tongue • 2. Moses was concerned about not being able to speak, even after being trained for 40 years in Pharaoh's courts; later Aaron became the speaker and the High Priest but not one always of good character. • Isaiah said he was a man of unclean lips (Isaiah 6:5); a seraphim came and touched his lips with a coal from the altar; then Isaiah said “Here am I, send me.” • Zachariah couldn’t speak because he didn’t have faith • Jesus healed the deaf and dumb in His many miracles and can heal us spiritually, as well as teach us when to speak and how to speak
Sins with the Tongue • People sometimes continue in the negative cycle of where they think evil, wrote evil, speak evil and then do evil – look at what happened with the mass murderer at Virginia Tech and how he thought evil, wrote evil (plays), spoke evil (tapes), and then did evil (murders) • Others have started with speaking evil and then doing evil • You can stop negativity and even more sins by reining in your tongue and not speaking, just like the picture of the bridled horse where the bridle and bit in the mouth helps direct the path of travel for the horse
Process of Sinning with the Tongue • A wrong thought comes into the mind/brain • An emotional response comes from the wrong thought • The decision of the human will is made to speak not considering God’s will • The tongue is used to speak evil instead of good • The words that are evil and/or negative can have a negative impact on the mind/brain which continues the negative cycle • People sometimes continue in the negative cycle
Glorifying God with Our Words • Use our tongues and words for praising God; “O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth thy praise (Psa. 51:15) • Use your tongue only to say that which is good and loving – let your answers be “yes and no”; do not swear by anything in heaven or in earth • Use your tongue to thank God for everything and in everything • Refrain from speaking if not in love and kindness (Love suffers long and is kind (1 Cor. 13:4); “Keep you tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking guile” (Psa. 34:13)
It is Well with My Soul – Philip Bliss When peace like a river attendeth my way,When sorrows like sea billows roll;Whatever my lot Thou hast taught me to say,It is well, it is well with my soul. Tho’ Satan should buffet, tho’ trials should come,Let this blest assurance control;That Christ hast regarded my helpless estate,and hath shed His own blood for my soul. And Lord, haste the day When the faith shall be sight;The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;The trump shall resoundAnd the Lord shall descend,Even so, it is well, with my soul. Chorus: It is well with my soul. It is well, it is well with my soul. CCLI License #2802949 The Thames River
