Cornerstone Ministries - North and South Korea Joint Christmas Worship
North and South Korea Unite in Offering Christmas Worship to God
May all the peoples of the world bow and worship
our Lord Jesus Christ who has come into the world
Standing in for the North Korean saints who patiently await the second coming of the Lord
we, North Korean refugees who have found the Lord
join with our brothers and sisters in South Korea
as, united in the Spirit, we come into the presence of our Lord
to offer our worship, celebrating our Saviour's birth
We simply desire to lift the Holy Name of God, our Father
My Father, you never deserted this nation
Father, Father, We are on thin ice
Father, Father
The spilled blood of the Martyrs has left descendants that still live, even now
My Father,
I know the Spirit of the Lord will come, to deliver and restore
North Korean underground church worship
In difficult times, He embraces us
When things are more than we can bear
We can take and hold onto His hand When things are more than we can bear
We can take and hold onto His hand
I believe in Heaven
I believe in God
A thousand years may pass
But God lives eternally
I believe in Heaven
I believe in God
A thousand years may pass
But God is forevermore
North Korean Underground Christian: Our Lord is such a wonderful Lord
From the first moment I met Him
I weep in thankfulness to Him
I was living in the darkness
How could I have survived the suffering and sadness of this world without Him?
I am truly, truly thankful to the Lord for His salvation
I lived in this world in anguish and bitterness
I knew not of our Lord's suffering heart
I walked a long road heavy with distress
Then my Lord granted me, a sinner, His pardon
Now I will speak of His love until my life here is done
When I close my eyes and think
The Lord has led my life's road up to now
My Lord has never turned His face away from me
He transformed my life of tears into a road of joyful laughter
My Lord granted me, a sinner, His pardon
Now I will speak of His love until my life here is done
The saints in North Korea, not just at Christmas but without ceasing.
in midst of their persecution and suffering they never stop worshiping the Lord
As we think of their suffering, let's join with them before the Lord, offering Him worship
Faith of our fathers, living still,
In spite of dungeon, fire and sword;
O how our hearts beat high with joy
Whenever we hear that glorious Word!
Faith of our fathers, holy faith!
We will be true to thee till death
Faith of our fathers, we will strive
To win all nations unto Thee;
And through the truth that comes from God,
we all shall then be truly free.
Faith of our fathers, holy faith!
We will be true to thee till death.
Faith of our fathers, we will love
both friend and foe in all our strife;
and preach thee, too, as love knows
how by kindly words and virtuous life.
Faith of our fathers, holy faith!
We will be true to thee till death.
To my sister back in North Korea:
At Christmas we celebrate that no matter if you have a high or low position, whether rich or poor,
God loved us all so much that he sent His only Son
who suffered in our place death on the cross so that we may be reunited with our Father, God
Today we remember the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord
This great gift of love is not just for others
it is for you, my sister, and for all those living in North Korea and the whole world
everyone has the opportunity to directly experience God's great love to us
My dear sister, if you repent and ask Jesus Christ to come into your life
He will forgive your sins and dress you in white clothes
It is my prayer that you experience this great salvation and the many blessings it brings
Surrounded by darkness. the hidden Bride of Christ arises and dances in North Korea
Thousands of hidden saints and churches in North Korea
join those in South Korea offering their sacrifice of praise
In midst of the spiritual darkness of North Korea
the holy Light of the World, Jesus Christ, is burning brightly
Come to Bethlehem and see Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye, to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him, born the King of angels;
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;
O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest;
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to Thee be glory given;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Pastor Isaac - Cornerstone Ministries
At the beginning of this service we started in a darkened room
That was no accident because we want to feel what our brothers and sisters feel
We wanted to feel together the spiritual darkness that covers North Korea
This was done on purpose
The sudden bright lights represented the coming of the Word, the Light of the World
The birth of Jesus Christ is Good News to the whole world
the most powerful event that has ever occurred
The birth of Christ at that time was only known to a handful of the lowest class people
The Good News... the Good News... the Good News
Like when the terminally ill are healed or the deaf can once again hear
that marvelous joy
Like when the mute can finally speak... that joy
Like when the paralytic can run like a deer... that wondrous feeling
Like the feeling of the poor when they are fully fed and clothed... that happiness
Not just that.
When our suffering hearts are healed and our lives are blessed... that joy
Like when the long suffering captive finally receives freedom... those tears of joy
Our Lord offers us freedom... freedom
Freedom to call out "Lord, Lord"
Freedom to sing to the Lord.
Freedom to pray openly to the Lord.
Freedom to gather and worship.
Freedom for church bells to ring calling people to worship
Freedom to openly read the Bible and pass on its Word... that joy
The day permission is given for all that in North Korea... what JOY!
The freedom to openly declare "I am a Christian"
We proclaim that this day of freedom is coming soon for the hidden church
This is the meaning of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ in Bethlehem
We sinners, who deserve nothing, have been restored to fellowship with God.
It is to celebrate this joyful event together that we are gathered here today
Can any of you join with me in proclaiming that...
next year in Pyongyang we will join with our brothers and sisters in singing Hallelujah to our Lord?
King of Kings... Forever and ever... Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
and Lord of Lords... Forever and ever... Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
King of Kings... Forever and ever... Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Lord of Lords. King of King and Lord of Lords.
And He shall reign forever and ever forever and ever and ever
King of Kings... Forever and ever... and Lord of Lords... Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
and He shall reign forever and ever
King of Kings and Lord of Lords. King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
and He shall reign forever and ever forever and ever and ever
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
(Time of prayer and worship)
Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing, ever blessed,
Wellspring of the joy of living, ocean depth of happy rest!
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, all who live in love are Thine;
Teach us how to love each other, lift us to the joy divine.
Full of joy... we worship you, Lord!
This may be the first time you've been to this kind of meeting
I'll say it once again: Next year we will sing Hallellujah in North Korea!
Next year we will sing Hallellujah in North Korea!
Next year we will sing Hallellujah in North Korea!
Dear Lord, our Father,
We meet today to remember Your coming to this world with joy and gladness
We proclaim your great work
You walked this earth for North Korea. You carried your cross for North Korea.
You rose from the dead and sit at the right hand of the Father
According to Your Word, as we await Your victory, we spread the Gospel
We await with our brothers Your great work
This is why we can be so joyful
Lord God, around us there are those who have never heard of Your love and sacrifice
There is a people who can't freely hear the Gospel and receive Your salvation
We want to lift them up to You.
We want them to enjoy the same grace and joy
We desire that blessed news of our Lord and His worship spread freely in North Korea
Lord God, we know Your heart towards North Korea
It is not enough for just us to worship you
We must live in obedience to You and spread the Gospel
That's not all
Soon, soon, we ask for Your grace to lift Your name in Pyongyang, worshiping You by singing Hallelujah!
Next year in Pyongyang, that city that was once called a second Jerusalem,
we pray You allow us to join in worshiping You by singing Hallelujah!
Father God, please wait no longer
Have mercy on the people of North Korea
Spread your Word to reach them
We request You give them also the freedom we enjoy to worship You
Freedom to pray
Freedom to praise You
Freedom to proclaim Your name
Freedom to meet together to worship You
Freedom to carry their Bibles openly and name themselves Christians to family and friends
Allow that day to come soon
South Koreans join with North Koreans in asking for this day to come
We declare that many people will come to know you
and all of us working together
May many more come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ
We pray all this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Hallelujah!
Our Lord is born!
Hallelujah!
King of Kings... Forever and ever
and Lord of Lords... Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
and He shall reign forever and ever
Forever and ever... Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Next year we will sing out Hallelujah in North Korea!
