The Spring Has Come
(VU 187)

The spring has come,
Let all the Church be part of it!
The world has changed,
And God is at the heart of it!
New light, new day,
New colour after winter grey,
New light, new day,
The spring has come,
Let all the Church be part of it!



The sun is warm,
Let all God's children play in it!
The world expands,
Let's spread the Gospel Way in it!
New leaf, new thrust,
New greening for the love of Christ,
New leaf, new thrust,
The sun is warm,
Let all God's children play in it!


The spring has come,
New people are the flowers of it!
Through wind and rain,
New life is in the showers of it!
New bud, new shoot,
New hope will bear the Spirit's fruit,
New bud, new shoot,
The spring has come,
New people are the flowers of it!

Midnight Sharpness, Starfields, Fading
(VU 181)

Midnight sharpness, starfields, fading,
Creeping hues engulf the east,
Strips of gravecloth cloud reflecting
Faintest lines in crimson grey.
Herald Dawn's first heartbeat glowing,
Blood-red streaks of fire flow
'Cross the fields of furrowed labour,
Signs of living, promise, hope.





Cold of winter, dark of evening,
Cannot crush the light-seed sown,
Flames on frozen, dew-wrapped grasses,
Sparkling tears of Joy Unknown:
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
Shout O skies! Rejoice O fields!
Hallelujah! Jesus! Saviour!
Let the Bells of Morning peal!

Anthem
(Sung in spring 2019)

Within This House of Worship

(Lloyd Larson)




Offering


Praise God from whom All blessings flow,
In heaven above and earth below:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Praise God, Creator, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, three-in-one:
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Sung Dedication







The Head That Once Was Crowned
(VU 190)

The head that once was crowned with thorns
Is crowned with glory now;
A royal diadem adorns
The mighty Victor's brow.

The joy of all who dwell above,
The joy of all below,
To whom he manifests his love,
And grants his name to know.


To them the cross, with all its shame,
With all its grace, is given;
Their name an everlasting name,
Their joy the joy of heaven.

They suffer here with Christ below,
They reign with him above;
Their profit and their joy to know
The mystery of his love.

The cross he bore is life and health,
Though shame and death to him;
His people's hope, his people's wealth,
Their everlasting theme.








This is the day that God has made;
We will rejoice and be glad!
This is the day that God has made;
We will rejoice and be glad!
Singing hallelu, singing hallelu,
Singing hallelu!
We will rejoice
And be glad!
Singing hallelu, singing hallelu,
Singing hallelu!
We will rejoice and be glad!




Postlude


Holy God We Praise Thy Name

In the setting of Thanks Be To Thee
By G. F. Handel

Arr'd by Cindy Berry.



Now it's time to wind down and Smell the Roses.
(Smell the roses??)
And here's a few good hymn tunes to hum or sing out...


We Shall Go Out with Hope of Resurrection

(VU 586)

We shall go out with hope of resurrection,
We shall go out, from strength to strength go on,
We shall go out and tell our stories boldly,
Tales of a love that will not let us go.


We'll sing our songs of wrongs that can be righted,
We'll dream our dream of hurts that can be healed,
We'll weave a cloth of all the world united
Within the vision of a Christ who sets us free.



We Shall Gather at the River
(VU 710)

Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod;
With its crystal tide for ever
Flowing by the throne of God?
Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.
Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.
