Sheep May Safely Graze

MVT 9 - from

"The Hunting Contata" by J. S. Bach

Sheep may safely graze and pasture
In a watchful Shepherd's sight.

Those who rule with wisdom guiding
Bring to hearts a peace abiding
Bless a land with joy made bright.

(From the libretto of the contata
by Salomon Franck)

Johann Sebastian Bach

(1685 - 1750)

Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of Heav’n to earth come down;
Fix in us thy humble dwelling;
All thy faithful mercies crown!
Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart.

Love Divine, All Loves Excelling

(VU 333)

Come, Almighty to deliver,
Let us all Thy life receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Nevermore Thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
Pray and praise Thee without ceasing,
Glory in Thy perfect love.

Finish, then, Thy new creation;
Pure and spotless let us be;
Let us see Thy great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee;
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in Heav’n we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

John 15 verses 9-17

We Are One (VU 402)

We are one as we come,
as we come, joyful to be here,
in the praise on our lips
there's a sense that God is near.
We are one as we sing,
as we seek, we are found;
and we come needful of God's grace
as we meet, together in this place.

We are one, as we share,
As we share brokenness and fear,
In the touch of a hand
There's a sense that God is here.
We are one as we care,
As we heal, we are healed;
And we share warmth in God's embrace
As we pray together in this place.

We are one as we feast,
as we feast, peace becomes the sign;
in the bread and the wine
there's a sense of love divine.
We are one as we come,
as we feed, we are fed;
and we feel God's refreshing grace
as we meet at table in this place.

We are one as we hear,
as we hear, heart and hand unite;
in the word we receive
there's a sense that God is light.
We are one as we leave,
as we love, we are loved;
and we seek justice in God's ways
as we move together from this place.

Sermon: The Household of Faith

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

Anthem: Healing River

by F Hellerman and F. Minkoff)

(Sung in May 2014.)

(Chateaugay River, N.Y.)

"O healing river,
Send down your waters,
Send down your waters
Upon this land..."

One Bread, One Body (VU 467)

One bread, one body, one Lord of all,
One cup of blessing which we bless.
And we, though many,
Throughout the earth,
We are one body in this one Lord.

Gentile or Jew,
Servant or free,
Woman or man, no more.


Many the gifts,
Many the works,
One in the Lord of all.


Grain for the fields,
Scattered and grown,
Gathered to one, for all.


Sent Forth by God's Blessing
(VU 481)

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.

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.

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!


George Frideric Handel
(1685 - 1759)

And that's all folks... Next week?? Hope so.

Tell Me The Stories of Jesus

Tell me the stories of Jesus
I love to hear;
Things I would ask him to tell me
If he were here:
Scenes by the wayside,
Tales of the sea,
Stories of Jesus,
Tell them to me.

First let me hear how the children
Stood round his knee,
And I shall fancy his blessing
Resting on me;
Words full of kindness,
Deeds full of grace,
All in the love-light
Of Jesus' face.

Jesus Calls Us

Jesus calls us; o'er the tumult
Of our life's wild restless sea,
Day by day his clear voice sounding,
Saying, “Christian, follow me.”

Long ago apostles heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and toil and kindred,
Leaving all for Jesus' sake.
