Largo Ombra Mai Fù

Georg Friederich Händel

1685 - 1759

Creator God You Gave Us Life
MV 27

Creator God you gave us life,
Your image formed within our souls,
Yet through the mist of time and space,
We search for that which makes us whole.

Through hands that paint majestic skies,
And voices chanting melody,
With words that reach beyond the page,
We comprehend your mystery.

In ev'ry flow'r and ev'ry tree,
We see your great diversity,
Yet greater still we see your love,
Expressed in our humanity.


When with our hearts, our hands our minds,
We share our gifts with all the world,
Our spirits soar beyond the veil,
To touch the very face of God.


Mark 4 vs 26 - 34

Text: HERE

Be Thou My Vision
VU 642

Be Thou my Vision, O joy of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art;
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, my calm in all in all strife;
I ever with Thee and thou in my life;
Thou loving parent, thy child may I be,
Thou in me dwelling, and I one with thee.

Be thou my battle shield, sword for the fight;
Be thou my dignity, thou my delight,
Thou my soul's shelter, thou my high tower;
Raise thou me heavenward, O power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor vain empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always;
Thou and thou only, the first in my heart,
Great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

Great God of heaven, after victory won,
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heaven's sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

The Offering

What can I Do? What can I bring?
What can I say? What ca I sing?
I'll sing with joy.
I'll say a prayer.
I'll bring my love. I'll do my share.

Sung Dedication

All Praise to Thee (VU 327) (VU327)

All praise to thee, for thou, O King divine,
Didst yield the glory that of right was thine,
That in our troubled hearts thy grace might shine:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Thou cam'st to us in lowliness of thought;
By thee the outcast and the poor were sought,
And by thy death was God's salvation wrought:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Let this mind be in us which was in thee,
Who wast a servant that we might be free,
Humbling thyself to death on Calvary:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Wherefore, by God's eternal purpose, thou
Art high exalted o'er all creatures now,
And given the name to which all knees shall bow:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Let every tongue confess with one accord
In heaven and earth that Jesus Christ is Lord;
And God eternal be by all adored:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

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!

By A. LePrévost

(1812 -1874)

So as we make our way through the Open Church Doors
We are followed by some familiar tunes...

Be well...

Lord, Listen to Your Children Praying
(VU 400)

Lord, listen to your children praying,
Lord, send your Spirit in this place;
Lord, listen to your children praying,
Send us love, send us power, send us grace.

Precious Lord, Take My Hand
(VU 670)

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord,
Lead me home

When my way grows drear
Precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord,
Lead me home
