Prelude: Gavotte

By S. Wesley





Samuel Wesley
1766 - 1857








Let Us With a Gladsome Mind
(VU 234)

Let us with a gladsome mind
Praise our God, forever kind;
Whose great mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.


God, with all commanding might,
Filled the new-made world with light;
For God's mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.



God has with a gracious eye
Looked upon our misery;
For God's mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.



All things living God does feed,
With full measure meets their need;
For God's mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.


Let us then with gladsome mind,
Praise our God, forever kind;
Whose great mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Gathering Prayer

Isaiah 6 verses 1-8

John 3 verses 1-17

The written text: HERE.



Where Cross the Crowded Ways of Life
VU 681

Where cross the crowded ways of life,
Where sound the cries of race and clan,
Above the noise of selfish strife,
We hear your words of life again.



In haunts of wretchedness and need,
On shadowed thresholds, dark with fears,
From paths where hide the lures of greed,
We catch the vision of your tears.


The cup of water given for you
Still holds the freshness of your grace;
Yet long these multitudes to view
The strong compassion of your face.



O Jesus, from the mountain side,
Make haste to heal these hearts of pain;
Among these restless throngs abide,
And tread the city's streets again,


Till all the world shall learn your love
And follow where your feet have trod,
Till glorious from your heaven above
Shall come the city of our God.

Sung Dedication







Though Ancient Walls
(VU 691)

Though ancient walls may still stand proud
And racial strife be fact,
Though boundaries may be lines of hate,
Proclaim God's saving act!

Refrain: Walls that divide are broken down,
Christ is our unity!
Chains that enslave are thrown aside;
Christ is our Liberty!



[The Berlin Wall is built in 1961]

When vested power stands firm entrenched
And breaks another's back,
When waste and want live side by side,
It's Gospel that we lack.
Refrain



The truth we seek in varied scheme,
The life that we pursue,
Unites us in a common quest
For self and world made new.
Refrain

[And the wall is torn down in 1989]



The church divided seeks that grace,
That newness we proclaim;
A unity of serving love
That lives praise to God's name!
Refrain

This broken world seeks lasting health
And vital unity.
God's people by God's Word renewed,
Cast off all slavery!
Refrain






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!

(From More Voices no. 122)






Postlude

Courante in G

by Handel



George Frideric Handel

1685 - 1759



And it's That Time again...


Fairest Lord Jesus
(VU 341)

Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature,
O thou of God to earth come down:
Thee will I cherish, thee will I honour,
Thou my soul's glory, joy, and crown.

Fair are the meadows,
Fairer still the woodlands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
Who makes the troubled heart to sing.

Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And fair the twinkling, starry host;
Jesus shines brighter,
Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast.



This is God's Wondrous World
(VU 296)

This is God's wondrous world,
And to my listening ears,
All nature sings, and round me rings
The music of the spheres.

This is God's wondrous world,
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas,
God's hand the wonders wrought.

This is God's wondrous world,
The birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white,
Declare their maker's praise.

This is God's wondrous world.
God shines in all that's fair,
In the rustling grass or mountain pass,
God's voice speaks everywhere.
