Our Last Service with Scott


Air
from the
Orchestral Suite No. 3
by Bach.



J. S. Bach (1685 - 1750)






And an Announcement from
Mary R.


And back to Mr. Scott

Followed by a Call To Worship
 



GOD IS HERE (VU 389)

God is here! As we his people
Meet to offer praise and prayer,
May we find in fuller measure
What it is in Christ we share.
Here, as in the world around us,
All our varied skills and arts
Wait the coming of His Spirit
Into open minds and hearts.

"Here are symbols to remind us..."


Here are symbols to remind us
Of our lifelong need of grace;
Here are table, font and pulpit,
Here the cross has central place.
Here in honesty of preaching,
Here in silence, as in speech,
Here in newness and renewal
God the Spirit comes to each.

Here our children find a welcome
In the Shepherd's flock and fold;
Here as bread and wine are taken,
Christ sustains us as of old.
Here the servants of the Servant
Seek in worship to explore
What it means in daily living
To believe and to adore.





"...bread and wine are taken".

Lord of all, of Church and Kingdom,
In an age of change and doubt,
Keep us faithful to the gospel,
Help us work your purpose out.
Here, in this day's dedication,
All we have to give, receive;
We who cannot live without you,
We adore you! We believe.

Gathering Prayer

Praise the Lord with the Sound of Trumpet
(VU 245)

Praise the Lord with the sound of trumpet,
Praise the Lord with the harp and lute,
Praise the Lord with the gentle sounding flute.

Praise the Lord in the field and forest,
Praise the Lord in the city square,
Praise the Lord anytime and anywhere.
 
Praise the Lord in the wind and sunshine,
Praise the Lord in the dark of night,
Praise the Lord in the rain or snow
Or in the morning light.



Praise the Lord in the deepest valley,
Praise the Lord on the highest hill,
Praise the Lord,
Never let your voice be still.

Praise the Lord with the crashing cymbal,
Praise the Lord with the pipe and string,
Praise the Lord with the
Joyful songs you sing.



Praise the Lord on a weekday morning,
Praise the Lord on a Sunday noon,
Praise the Lord by the
Light of sun or moon.

Praise the Lord in the time of sorrow,
Praise the Lord in the time of joy,
Praise the Lord in the every moment,
Nothing let your praise destroy.

Praise the Lord in the peace and quiet,
Praise the Lord in your work or play,
Praise the Lord everywhere
In every way!







Anthem: Nella Fantasia
(E. Morricone and Chiara Ferrau)

Soloist Elin Thordordottir



Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo giusto,
Li tutti vivano in pace e in onestà.
Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere,
Come le nuvole che volano,
Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima.

(In my imagination I see a fair world,
Everyone lives in peace and in honesty there.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like the clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul....)





Offering and Dedication

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

Sung Dedication




Christ, Be Our Host  (VU 465)

Christ, be our Host, welcoming, greeting:
This is the banquet your love has prepared!
Hear us, we pray, entrance entreating:
This is the banquet your love has prepared!
Come to the table where mercies are spread!
Come to the feast, all who hunger!



Christ, be our Bread, broken and given:
This is the banquet your love has prepared!
Here you provide manna from heaven:
This is the banquet your love has prepared!
Come to the table where mercies are spread!
Come to the feast, all who hunger!

Christ, be our Wine, gift of creation:
This is the banquet your love has prepared!
Made by your death Cup of Salvation:
This is the banquet your love has prepared!
Come to the table where mercies are spread!
Come to the feast, all who hunger!













We Sing

Christ, be our Guest in our departing:
Now we are fed by the food you prepared!
Christ, be our Strength, courage imparting:
Now we are fed by the food you prepared!
Go from the feast where my mercies are spread!
Go, I am with you forever!




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!





For The Beauty of The Earth

Instrumental version by
John Rutter



For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the Love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Lord of all to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise...


-- A few "After Hymns" on the piano.... --


Come Let Us Sing of a Wonderful Love
(VU 574)

Come let us sing of a wonderful love,
Tender and true;
Out of the heart of the Father above,
Streaming to me and to you:
Wonderful love
Dwells in the heart of the Father above.

Jesus, the Saviour, this gospel to tell,
Joyfully came;
Came with the helpless and hopeless to dwell,
Sharing their sorrow and shame;
Seeking the lost,
Saving, redeeming at measureless cost.



Come, O Fount of Every Blessing
(VU 559)

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount, I'm fixed upon it,
Mount of God's unfailing love.
