-- Prelude --


In Tears of Grief

From the "St. Matthew Passion" by J.S. Bach

A Passion depicts the sufferings of Jesus between the night of the Last Supper and his death.



Original Latin title of the Passion: "Passio Domini nostri J.C. secundum Evangelistam Matthæum"

which we translate as "The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ according to the Evangelist Matthew".












Come, Let Us Sing (VU 222)

Come, let us sing to the Lord our song:
We have stood silently too long;
Surely the Lord deserves our praise,
So joyfully thank God for our days.

O thirsty soul, come drink at the well;
God's living waters will never fail.
Surely the Lord will help you to stand,
Strengthened and comforted by God's hand.



You dwell among us and cause us to pray,
And walk with each other following your way;
Our precious brothers and sisters will grow
In the fulfilling love they know.

Deserts shall bloom and mountains shall sing
To the desire of all living things.
Come, all you creatures, high and low;
Let your praises endlessly flow.





Isaiah 56:1-8

Written text: HERE






One More Step Along The World I Go
(VU 639)

One more step along the world I go,
One more step along the world I go;
From the old things to the new,
Keep me travelling along with you:

Refrain:

Round the corners of the world I turn,
More and more about the world I learn;
All the new things that I see
You'll be looking at along with me.

Refrain



As I travel through the bad and good,
Keep me travelling the way I should.
Where I see no way to go,
You'll be telling me the way, I know.
Refrain


Give me courage when the world is rough,
Keep me loving though the world is tough;
Leap and sing in all I do,
Keep me travelling along with you:
Refrain


(Nelson Mandela)




You are older than the world can be,
You are younger than the life in me;
Ever old and ever new,
Keep me travelling along with you:
Refrain






Offering & Dedication


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







In the Bulb There Is a Flower
(VU 703)

In the bulb there is a flower,
In the seed, an apple tree,
In cocoons, a hidden promise:
Butterflies will soon be free!
In the cold and snow of winter
There's a spring that waits to be,
Unrevealed until its season,
Something God alone can see.



There's a song in every silence,
Seeking word and melody;
There's a dawn in every darkness,
Bringing hope to you and me.
From the past will come the future;
What it holds, a mystery,
Unrevealed until its season,
Something God alone can see.




In our end is our beginning,
In our time, infinity;

In our doubt there is believing,
In our life, eternity,
In our death, a resurrection,
At the last, a victory,
Unrevealed until its season,
Something God alone can see.






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 --






William Boyce
1727 - 1787





Music note: In English-speaking countries, the music played before and after the service is often called a 'voluntary,' whether or not it is so titled. The above voluntary consists of a prelude and fugue.

And we have earned a cuppa Don't Ya Know??
Well, what's a keepin' you?

Why not hum a few Bars whilst -- till Perc finishes....Till then...


All the Way My Saviour Leads Me (VU 635)

All the way my Saviour leads me; what have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt his tender mercy who through life has been my guide?
Heavenly peace, divinest comfort, here by faith in him to dwell,
For I know, whate'er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Saviour leads me, cheers each winding path I tread,
Gives me grace for every trial, feeds me with the living bread.
Though my weary steps may falter, and my soul a-thirst may be,
Gushing from the rock before me, lo, a spring of joy I see!



Faith of Our Fathers (VU 580)

Faith of our fathers, living still in spite of dungeon, fire, and sword;
O how our hearts beat high with joy, whene'er we hear that glorious word:
Faith of our fathers, holy faith, we will be true to you till death.

Faith of our mothers, daring faith, your work for Christ is love revealed,
Spreading God's word from pole to pole, making love known and freedom real:
Faith of our mothers, holy faith, we will be true to you till death.
