All Praise to Thee (VU327)

All praise to thee, for thou, O King divine,
Didst yield the glory that of right was thine,
That in our troubled hearts thy grace might shine:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Thou cam'st to us in lowliness of thought;
By thee the outcast and the poor were sought,
And by thy death was God's salvation wrought:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Let this mind be in us which was in thee,
Who wast a servant that we might be free,
Humbling thyself to death on Calvary:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Wherefore, by God's eternal purpose, thou
Art high exalted o'er all creatures now,
And given the name to which all knees shall bow:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Let every tongue confess with one accord
In heaven and earth that Jesus Christ is Lord;
And God eternal be by all adored:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Would You Bless Our Homes and Families (VU 556)

Would you bless our homes and families,
Source of life who calls us here;
in our world of stress and tension
teach us love that conquers fear.

Help us learn to love each other
with a love that constant stays;
teach us when we face our troubles,
love's expressed in many ways.

When our way is undemanding,
let us use the time that's ours
to delight in simple pleasures,
sharing joys in gentle hours.

When our way is anxious walking
And a heavy path we plod,
Teach us trust in one another
And in you, our gracious God.

From the homes in which we're nurtured
With the love that shapes us there,
Teach us, God, to claim as family
Every one whose life we share.

And through all that life may offer,
May we in your love remain;
May the love we share in families
Be alive to praise your name.

Let us reach beyond the boundaries
Of our daily thought and care
Till the family you have chosen
Spills its love out everywhere.

Help us learn to love each other
With a love that constant stays;
Teach us when we face our troubles,
Love's expressed in many ways.

The Remembrance Sunday anthem
from 2014:

Da Pacem Domine

Unfortunately, no camera that day.

Da Pacem Domine
(Give peace, O Lord)

In diebus nostris.
(In our time.)

The hymn to bring this time of worship to a close...

I, The Lord of Sea and Sky
(VU 509)

I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard My people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin,
My hand will save.

I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear My light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart

I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have born my peoples pain.
I have wept for love of them,
They turn away.

I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak My word to them,
Whom shall I send?


I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save

Finest bread I will provide,
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give My life to them,
Whom shall I send?


Little Fugue in F
George Freidrich Handel

And as we make our way to a well-earned cuppa
Connie opens her well-worn hymn book..

Come, O Fount of Every Blessing
(VU 559)

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 God's unfailing love.

Come Let Us Sing of a Wonderful Love (VU 574)

Come let us sing of a wonderful love,
Tender and true, tender and true,
Out of the heart of the Father above,
Streaming to me and to you:
Wonderful love, wonderful love
Dwells in the heart of the Father above.
