You Are the Christ!
Jesus gathered the chosen together. Then He asked this question: “Who
do people say the Son of Man is?” “Who do they say I am? Who do you
say I am?”
You are the Christ, You are Messiah. You are the Christ, the
Son of the Living God. You are the King, You are the Savior.
You are the way, the truth, the life, You are the Christ! O Lord
most high, You are the Christ!
Once unto ev’ry man and nation comes a moment to decide. What will
our answer be to Jesus? Will we in faith reply?
Moravians have a story God’s given us to share;
let’s tell it with conviction that all the world may hear.
God’s many gifts and graces to each were freely giv’n;
that in our earthly living we share a glimpse of Heav’n.
Moravians have a story; we share it for God’s glory;
and tell our old, old story in new exciting ways.
To each God’s grace was given, to each God’s call is plain.
To put our gifts in service; to share and share again;
to be the church God promised to a world divided, torn;
God’s purpose be fulfilled – be reconciled, reborn.
Moravians have a story; we share it for God’s glory;
and tell our old, old story in new exciting ways.
Our guest organist this morning is Anita Long. Anita and her husband,
Wayne, live in Mocksville where she teaches piano. Anita served for many

talent with us this morning! We also thank Linda Mathers for directing the
