Let Us With a Gladsome Mind

Let us with a gladsome mind
praise the Lord, so good and kind:
for God’s mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us blaze God’s name abroad;
of all gods the Lord is God,
for God’s mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

God with all-commanding might,
filled the new-made world with light,
for God’s mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

All things living God doth feed;
with full hand supplies their need,
for God’s mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us then with gladsome mind
praise the Lord, so good and kind:
for God’s mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

Speak, Lord, in the Stillness

Speak, Lord, in the stillness
speak Your word to me;
hushed my heart to listen
in expectancy.

Speak, O gracious Master,
in this quiet hour;
let me see Your face, Lord,
feel Your touch of power.

Speak, Your servant listens,
be not silent, Lord;
let me know Your presence;
let Your voice be heard.

Joyful, Joyful We Adore You

Joyful, joyful we adore You,
God of glory, Lord of love.
Hearts unfold like flowers before You,
opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
drive the dark of doubt away;
giver of immortal gladness,
fill us with the light of day.

All Your works with joy surround You;
earth and heaven reflect Your rays;
stars and angels sing around You,
centre of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
flowery meadow, flashing sea,
chanting bird and flowing fountain,
join to praise You joyfully.

You are giving and forgiving,
ever blessing, ever blessed,
well-spring of the joy of living,
ocean depth of happy rest.
God Creator, Christ our Saviour,
all are Yours who live in love.
Teach us how to love our neighbour;
lift us to Your joy above.

Morning stars, awake the chorus;
mortals, join with every part,
for what joy is set before us
as Christ’s love joins heart to heart!
Ever singing, march we onward,
victors in the midst of strife;
joyful music leads us sunward
in the triumph song of life.

Praise the Lord with the Sound of Trumpet

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 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.

Cares Chorus

I cast all my cares upon You.
I lay all of my burdens
down at Your feet.
And any time
that I don’t
know what to do,
I will cast all my cares upon You.

I cast all my cares upon You.
I lay all of my burdens
down at Your feet.
And any time
that I don’t
know what to do,
I will cast all of my cares upon You —
I will cast all my cares upon You.

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
’tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me:
this word my hope secures;
God will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures.

What thanks I owe you, and what love —
a boundless, endless store —
shall echo through the realms above
when time shall be no more.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
than when we’d first begun.

Count Your Blessings

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.

Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God has done.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God has done!

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by.

Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God has done.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God has done!

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God has done.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God has done!

You Are My All in All

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all.
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I’d be a fool,
You are my all in all.

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name.

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless Your name
You are my all in all.
When I fall down You pick me up,
When I am dry You fill my cup,
You are my all in all.

Jesus, Lamb of God,
Worthy is Your name.
Jesus, Lamb of God,
Worthy is Your name.

Jesus, Lamb of God,
Worthy is Your name.
Jesus, Lamb of God,
Worthy is Your name.
Worthy is Your name.
Worthy is Your name.

Change My Heart, O God

Change my heart, O God,
make it ever true;
change my heart, O God,

You are the Potter,

All the Way My Saviour Leads Me

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 —
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 athirst may be,
gushing from the rock before me,
lo, a spring of joy I see —
gushing from the rock before me,
lo, a spring of joy I see.

All the way my Saviour leads me,
oh the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised,
in my Father’s house above.
When my spirit, clothed immortal,
wings its flight to realms of day,
this my song through endless ages,
“Jesus led me all the way!” —
this my song through endless ages,
“Jesus led me all the way!”

Day by Day and With Each Passing Moment

Day by day, and with each passing moment,
strength I find to meet my trials here;
trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,
I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.
He, whose heart is kind beyond all measure,
gives unto each day what He deems best,
lovingly its part of pain and pleasure,
mingling toil with peace and rest.

Every day the Lord, Himself, is near me,
with a special mercy for each hour;
all my cares He fain would bear and cheer me,
He whose name is Counellor and Pow’r.
The protection of His child and treasure
is a charge that on Himself He laid.
“As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,”
this the pledge to me He made.

Help me then, in every tribulation,
so to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
that I lose not faith’s sweet consolation,
offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
e’er to take, as from a father’s hand,
one by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
till with Christ the Lord I stand.

In His Time

(Words & Music: Diane Ball © Maranatha Music, Church CCLI #2458953)

 

In the Bulb There is a Flower

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.

COMPOST SALE

Unfortunately, because of the restrictions on gatherings until June, we are unable to have our compost sale this year.  As you can imagine, it involves a lot more than five people, and we want to do our part to keep everyone safe and maintain the social distancing mandated by Dr. Morrison.

We’re looking forward to serving you in helping your gardens grow next year!

God bless you and stay safe!

Come To Us, Beloved Stranger

Come to us, beloved Stranger,
as You came that Easter day.
Walk with us to our Emmaus,
for we need You still today.
Come to us when we are broken,
when our dearest hopes are lost,
speak to us the prophets’ message
You fulfilled upon the cross.

Stay with us and give us blessing,
that our hopes again may rise.
Offer us Your broken body;
open our unseeing eyes.
Come to us, God’s love embodied;
touch our hearts with burning flame.
Risen Christ, once dead, now living,
come to us through joy, through pain.

We would never fail to see You
as You walk with us each day.
As a friend and not a stranger
You would join us on our way.
Help us trust that through Your mercy
we can doubt and fear transcend,
and to others be a blessing.
Keep us faithful till life’s end!

Be Thou My Vision

(Music: Public Domain, Words © Oxford University Press, 1961 Church CCLI# 2458953)

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song.
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease,
my Comforter, my All in All
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! -- who took on flesh,
fullness of God in helpless babe.
This gift of love and righteousness,
scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
the wrath of God was satisfied,
for every sin on Him was laid,
here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
sin’s curse has lost its grip on me.
For I am His, and He is mine,
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
this is the power of Christ in me.
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
can ever pluck me from His hand.
Till He returns or calls me home,
here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

No power of hell, no scheme of man,
can ever pluck me from His hand.
Till He returns or calls me home,
here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

At the Dawning of Salvation

At the dawning of salvation,
in the morning of the world,
Christ is raised, a living banner
by the love of God unfurled.
Through the daylight, through the darkness,
Christ leads on His great array:
all the saints and all the sinners
He has gathered on His way.

He is risen in the morning;
He is risen from the dead;
He is laughter after sadness;
He is light when night has fled.
He has suffered; He has triumphed;
life is His alone to give:
as He gave it once, He gives it
evermore, that we may live.

For the glory of salvation
in the dawn of Easter day
we will praise You, loving Father;
we rejoice to sing and pray
with the Son and with the Spirit.
Lead us on, Your great array,
saints and sinners celebrating
Your triumphant love today.

The Day of Resurrection

The day of resurrection — earth tell it out abroad,
the Passover of gladness, the Passover of God!
From death to life eternal, from earth unto the sky,
our Christ hath brought us over with hymns of victory.

Our hearts be pure from evil, that we may see aright
the Lord in rays eternal of resurrection light,
and, listening to his accents, may hear, so calm and plain,
His own “All Hail!” and, hearing, may raise the victor strain.

Now let the heavens be joyful; let earth its song begin;
let the round world keep triumph, and all that is therein;
invisible and visible, their notes together blend,
for Christ the Lord hath risen, our joy that hath no end
