Word of God Across the Ages

Word of God across the ages
live in me from day to day,
Jesus’ love and power controlling
all I do or say.

May the Word of God dwell richly
in my heart from hour to hour,
so that all may see I triumph
only through God’s power.

May the peace of God my Sovereign
rule my life in everything,
that I may be calm to comfort
sick and sorrowing

May the love of Jesus fill me,
as the waters fill the sea;
Christ exalting, self-denying,
this is victory.

May I run the race before me,
strong and brave to face the foe,
looking only unto Jesus
as I onward go.

Thy Word is a Lamp Unto My Feet

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.

When I feel afraid, and I think I’ve lost my way
still You’re there right beside me.
Nothing will I fear as long as You are near.
Please be near me to the end.

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.

I will not forget Your love for me,
and yet, my heart forever is wandering.
Jesus, be my guide and hold me to Your side;
and I will love you to the end.

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.

God Who Made the Earth

God who made the earth,
the air, the sky, the sea,
who gave the light its birth,
still cares for me.

God, who made the grass,
the flower, the fruit, the tree,
the day and night to pass,
still cares for me.

God, who made the sun,
the moon, the stars we see,
who sees life’s clouds come on,
still cares for me.

God, who made all things
on earth, in air, in sea,
who changing seasons brings,
still cares for me.

Shout to the Lord

My Jesus, my Saviour,
Lord, there is none like You,
all of my days, I want to praise
the wonders of Your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter
tower of refuge and strength
let every breath, all that I am
never cease to worship You.

Shout to the Lord, all the Earth, let us sing
power and majesty, praise to the King.
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
at the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand.
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

Shout to the Lord, all the Earth, let us sing
power and majesty, praise to the King.
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
at the sound of Your name.

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand.
Nothing compares to the promise I have . . .

Standing on the Promises

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
through eternal ages let His praises ring;
“Glory in the highest!”, I will shout and sing,
standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
standing on the promises of God my Savior;
standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
by the living Word of God I shall prevail,
standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
standing on the promises of God my Savior;
standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
standing on the promises of God my Savior;
standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

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.

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.

New Every Morning is the Love

New every morning is the love
our waking and uprising prove;
through sleep and darkness safely brought,
restored to life and power and thought.

New mercies each returning day
around us hover while we pray,
new perils past, new sins forgiven,
new thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven.

If on our daily course our mind
be set to hallow all we find,
new treasures still of countless price
God will provide for sacrifice.

The trivial round, the common task,
will furnish all we ought to ask,
room to deny ourselves,
a road to bring us daily nearer God.

Only, O Lord, in Thy dear love,
fit us for perfect rest above,
and help us, this and every day
to live more nearly as we pray!

This is My Father’s World

This is my Father’s world,
and to my listening ears
all nature sings, and ’round me rings
the music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world;
I rest me in the thought
of rocks, and trees, of skies, and seas —
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world;
the birds their carols raise;
the morning light, the lily white,
declare their Maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world;
He shines in all that’s fair;
in the rustling grass, I hear Him pass,
He speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father’s world;
oh let me not forget
that though the wrong seems oft’ so strong,
God is the Ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world,
the battle is not done;
Jesus, who died, shall be satisfied,
and earth and heaven be one.

The Church’s One Foundation

The church’s one foundation
is Jesus Christ our Lord;
we are His new creation
by water and the word;
from heaven He came and sought us
that we might ever be
His living servant people,
by His own death set free.

Called forth from every nation,
yet one o’er all the earth,
our charter of salvation:
one Lord, one faith, one birth,
one holy name professing
and at one table fed,
to one hope we are pressing,
by Christ’s own Spirit led.

We now on earth have union
with God the Three-in-One,
and share, through faith, communion
with those whose rest is won, —
O happy ones and holy!
Lord, give us grace that we,
like them, the meek and lowly,
on high may dwell with Thee.

Jesus Calls Us Here to Meet Him

Jesus calls us here to meet Him
as, through word and song and prayer,
we affirm God’s promised presence
where His people live and care.
Praise the God who keeps His promise;
praise the Son who calls us friends;
praise the Spirit who, among us,
to our hopes and fears attends.

Jesus calls us to confess Him;
Word of Life and Lord of all,
sharer of our flesh and frailness
saving all who fail or fall.
Tell His holy human story;
tell His tales that all may hear;
tell the world that Christ in glory
came to earth to meet us here.

Jesus calls us to His table
rooted firm in time and space,
where the church in earth and heaven
finds a common meeting place.
Share the bread and wine, His body;
share the love of which we sing;
share the feast for saints and sinners
hosted by our Lord and King.

THE APOSTLES’ CREED

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended into hell.
The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into
heaven, and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church;
the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

Here is bread; here is wine:

In this bread, there is healing;

In this moment, by the Spirit,
Christ is with us here.

Here we are, joined in one:
Christ is with us; He is with us.
