Sing Your Praise to God Eternal
(VU 244)

Sing your praise to God eternal,
Sing your praise to God the Son,
Sing your praise to God the Spirit,
Living and forever One.
God has made us, God has blessed us,
God has called us to be true.
God rules over all creation,
daily making all things new.

Join the praise of every creature,
Sing with singing birds at dawn;
When the stars shine forth at nightfall,
Hear their heavenly antiphon.
Praise God for the light of summer,
Autumn glories, winter snows,
For the coming of the springtime
And the life of all that grows.

Praise God on our days of gladness
for the summons to rejoice;
Praise God in our times of sadness
For the calm, consoling voice.
God our Maker, strong and loving,
Christ our Saviour, Leader, Lord,
Living God, Creator Spirit,
Be your holy name adored!

We Cannot Measure How You Heal
(VU 613)

We cannot measure how you heal
Or answer every sufferer's prayer,
Yet we believe your grace responds
Where faith and doubt unite to care.

The pain that will not go away,
The guilt that clings from things long past,
The fear of what the future holds,
Are present as if meant to last.

But present too is love which tends
The hurt we never hoped to find,
The private agonies inside,
The memories that haunt the mind.

Your hands, though bloodied on the cross,
Survive to hold and heal and warn,
To carry all through death to life
And cradle children yet unborn.

So some have come who need your help
And some have come to make amends,
As hands which shaped and saved the world
Are present in the touch of friends.

Lord, let your Spirit meet us here
To mend the body, mind and soul,
To disentangle peace from pain,
And make your broken people whole.

She feeds the heart and mind
As she lives to share God's wisdom..."

Rise Up and Call Her Blessed

Offering & Dedication

Take my hands, O Jesus,
let them work for you,
Make them strong and gentle,
Kind in all I do;
Let me watch you, Jesus,
Till I am gentle too,
Till my hands are kind hands,
Quick to work for you.

We Are Pilgrims

We are pilgrims on a journey,
Fellow travellers on the road;
We are here to help each other
Walk the mile and bear the load.

Sister, let me be your servant,
Let me be as Christ to you;
Pray that I may have the grace to
Let you be my servant too.

I will hold the Christ-light for you
In the night-time of your fear;
I will hold my hand out to you,
Speak the peace you long to hear.

I will weep when you are weeping,
When you laugh I'll laugh with you;
I will share your joy and sorrow,
Till we've seen this journey through.

When we sing to God in heaven,
We shall find such harmony,
Born of all we've known together
Of Christ's love and agony.

Brother, let me be your servant,
Let me be as Christ to you;
Pray that I may have the grace to
Let you be my servant too.

Sung Dedication

Filled with the spirit,
Filled with God's grace,
Filled with the friendship
We find in this place;
Called as disciples, go now in faith.
Jesus will show the way.

Go out and serve Him, serve Him.
Carry His word into all of the world.
Go and serve Him, serve Him.
Go out and serve our Lord.
Go serve our Lord.


Air in G from Suite XIV

by G. F. Handel

And now, of course, it's time for Ye Olde Hymns

And nobody's around so SOUND IT OUT!!

My Life Flows On VU 716
(How Can I Keep From Singing)

My life flows on in endless song,
Above earth's lamentation.
I hear the sweet, though far off hymn
That hails a new creation;
Through all the tumult and the strife,
I hear the music ringing:
It finds an echo in my soul-
How can I keep from singing?

What though my joys and comforts die?
My Saviour sill is living.
What though the shadows gather round?
A new song Christ is giving.
No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that refuge clinging:
Since love commands both heaven and earth,
How can I keep from singing?

Saviour, Again To Your Dear Name

Saviour, again to your dear name we raise
With one accord our parting hymn of praise;
We give you thanks before our worship cease,
Then, in the silence hear your word of peace.

Grant us your peace upon our homeward way;
With you began, with you shall end the day;
Guard now the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,
That in this house have called upon your name.

Now, So long folks...

Y'all come back now, Y'Hear?
