Intermezzo

(Robert Schumann)








Let Us With a Gladsome Mind

Let us with a gladsome mind
Praise our God, forever kind;
Whose great mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

God, with all commanding might,
Filled the new-made world with light;
For God's mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.


God has with a gracious eye
Looked upon our misery;
For God's mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

All things living God does feed,
With full measure meets their need;
For God's mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us then with gladsome mind,
Praise our God, forever kind;
Whose great mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Matthew 18:21-35


"Forgive our sins as we forgive,"
You taught us, Christ, to pray;
But you alone can grant us grace
To live the words we say.

How can your pardon reach and bless
The unforgiving heart
That broods on wrongs, and will not let
Old bitterness depart?




In blazing light your cross reveals
The truth we dimly knew:
What trivial debts are owed to us,
How great our debt to you!

O cleanse the depths within our souls
And bid resentment cease;
Then, bound to all in bonds of love,
Our lives will spread your peace.


You can read Scott's Sermon text HERE.






Here, O My Lord, I See You Face to Face
(VU 459, verses 1 & 2)

Here, O my Lord, I see you face to face;
Here would I touch and handle things unseen,
Here grasp with firmer hand eternal grace,
And all our weariness upon you lean.

Here would I feed upon the bread of God,
Here drink with you the royal wine of heaven;
Here would I lay aside each earthly load,
Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven.


Communion









Sent forth by God's blessing,
Our true faith confessing,
The people of God from his dwelling take leave.
The supper is ended,
O now be extended
The fruits of this service in all hearts who believe.

The seed of his teaching,
Receptive souls reaching,
Shall blossom in action for God and for all.
God's grace incite us,
God's love shall unite us
To work for the kingdom and answer it's call.


Sent Forth by God's Blessing (VU 481)
(The picture is the link to the music)



With praise and thanksgiving,
To God ever living,
The tasks of our everyday life we will face.
Our faith ever sharing,
In love ever caring,
Embracing God's children of each tribe and race.

With your feast you feed us,
With your light now lead us,
Unite us as one in this life that we share.
Then may all the living with praise and thanksgiving
Give Honour to Christ and the name that we bear.
