Welcome to Sojourn’s weekly worship music set list review & service recap. You’ll not only read a list of the songs we led but also the readings and prayers from our liturgy. You can also watch the video stream of the full service from our Facebook page (see a video of our sermon alone below).

Worship Director Justin Shaffer directs our liturgy, collaborating with our Creative Staff at Sojourn Church New Albany and our Liturgy writing team (Rebekah Carroll, Ryan Marsh, Libby Thorngate, and Lindsey Blair).

This week Pastor Jonah Sage preached Hebrews 1:2 in our sermon series Breaking The Silence.

Prelude: “If I Stand” Key, Leader


CALL TO WORSHIP:   Liturgist


1 Let all that I am praise the Lord.

O Lord my God, how great you are!

    You are robed with honor and majesty.

2     You are dressed in a robe of light.

You stretch out the starry curtain of the heavens;

3     you lay out the rafters of your home in the rain clouds.

You make the clouds your chariot;

    you ride upon the wings of the wind.

4 The winds are your messengers;

    flames of fire are your servants.

  -Psalm 104:1-4 NLT


—Song 2: “Our Great God” Key, Leader




1 O Lord, you have examined my heart

    and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

    You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

3 You see me when I travel

    and when I rest at home.

    You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

    even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

    You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

    too great for me to understand!

  -Psalm 139:1-6 NLT


—Song 3: “Psalm 139 (You Hem Me In)” Key, Leader


ASSURANCE: Liturgist


10 You who love the Lord, hate evil!

    He protects the lives of his godly people

    and rescues them from the power of the wicked.

11 Light shines on the godly,

    and joy on those whose hearts are right.

12 May all who are godly rejoice in the Lord

    and praise his holy name!

-Psalm 97:10-12 NLT


Without the atoning life, death, and resurrection of Christ, we’d have no hope of being counted amongst the “godly,” but in Christ, you are protected, rescued, and God’s LIGHT shines on you Christian! Let’s praise him! 


—Song 4: “Majesty (Here I Am)” Key, Leader


PEACE: Band Member

3 May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.     -Philemon 3 NLT

25 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. [Go in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit! Peace be with you!]
