O God of Love, True Source of Peace

O God of love, true source of peace,
make wars throughout the world to cease;
the wrath of sinful hearts restrain:
give peace, O God, give peace again.

Remember, Lord, Your works of old,
the wonders that our forebears told;
remember not our sin’s deep stain:
give peace, O God, give peace again.

Whom shall we trust but You, O God?
Where rest but on Your faithful word?
None ever called on You in vain:
give peace, O God, give peace again.

Where saints and angels dwell above,
all hearts are knit in holy love;
oh bind us in that heavenly chain:
give peace, O God, give peace again.

(Words: Henry Williams Baker. Music: Samuel Webbe, the elder.  Words & Music:Public Domain. Church CCLI # 2458953)

RESPONSIVE PSALM: Psalm 46

1 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
3 though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of the city, it shall not be moved;
God will help it when the morning dawns.
6 The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; He utters his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge.

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord;
see what desolations He has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow, and shatters the spear;
He burns the shields with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations,
I am exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge.

 

O God, Our Help in Ages Past

O God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
our shelter from the stormy blast,
and our eternal home.

Under the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
sufficient is Thine arm alone,
and our defence is sure.

Before the hills in order stood,
or earth received her frame,
from everlasting Thou art God,
to endless years the same.

A thousand ages in Thy sight
are like an evening gone,
short as the watch that ends the night
before the rising sun.

Time, like an ever -rolling stream,
bears all our years away.
They fly forgotten, as a dream
dies at the opening day.

O God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
still be our guard while troubles last,
and our eternal home.

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.

RESPONSIVE PSALM: Psalm 150

(Praise for God’s Surpassing Greatness)

1 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise Him in His mighty firmament!
2 Praise Him for His mighty deeds;
praise Him according to His surpassing greatness!

3 Praise Him with trumpet sound;
praise Him with lute and harp!
4 Praise Him with tambourine and dance;
praise Him with strings and pipe!

5 Praise Him with clanging cymbals;
praise Him with loud clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

 

They Did Not Build in Vain

They did not build in vain
who founded here a church
as witness to God’s love
amid a world of pain.
For still to those
who wish to see this place
proclaims God’s mystery.

They built upon the rock
that is the risen Lord,
the one foundation laid
which stands each earthly shock;
that, Spirit filled, we here might raise,
as living temples, prayer and praise.

Those who have loved this place,
a cloud of witnesses,
surround and urge us on
as we now run our race,
and so we lay
aside each sin in our desire
to strive and win.

Though the horizon’s bend
conceals the way ahead,
the footprints on the road
show Christ waits at the end;
in Him alone, our faith shall stand
who waits for us at God’s right hand.

Here is our meeting place
where doubt finds grounds of faith,
where hurt finds healing love,
our penitence Your grace;
where bridging time to eternity
is God the holy Trinity.

PSALM 1

1 Happy are those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
or sit in the seat of scoffers;
2 but their delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law they meditate day and night.
3 They are like trees
planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.

4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto me and rest;
lay down, thou weary one, lay down
thy head upon my breast!”
I came to Jesus as I was,
weary and worn and sad;
I found in Him a resting place,
and He has made me glad.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
the living water; thirsty one,
stoop down, and drink, and live!”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
of that life-giving stream;
my thirst was quenched,
my soul revived and now I live in Him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s light;
look unto me, thy morn’ shall rise,
and all thy day be bright.”
I looked to Jesus, and I found
in Him my star my sun,
and in that Light of life I’ll walk
’til travelling days are done.

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,
who rules all Creation:
My soul, praise God, who alone
is your health and salvation.
Come, all who hear,
sisters and brothers draw near,
joining in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord, who in all things
so wondrously reigning
hides you with sheltering wings,
ever gently sustaining.
Have you not seen
how your heart’s wishes have been
granted through God’s kind ordaining?

Praise to the Lord,
who will prosper your work,
who defends you.
Surely God’s merciful goodness
here daily attends you;
Ponder anew, what the Almighty can do,
when in great love God befriends you.

RESPONSIVE PSALM: Psalm 98

1 O sing to the Lord a new song,
for He has done marvelous things.
His right hand and His holy arm
have gotten Him victory.
2 The Lord has made known His victory;
He has revealed His vindication in the sight
of the nations.

3 He has remembered His steadfast
love and faithfulness to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
the victory of our God.
4 Make a joyful noise to the Lord,
all the earth;
break forth into joyous song
and sing praises.

5 Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
with the lyre and the sound of melody.
6 With trumpets and the sound of the horn
make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord.

7 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
the world and those who live in it.
8 Let the floods clap their hands;
let the hills sing together for joy

9 at the presence of the Lord,
for He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with equity. Amen!

 

Here is Bread, Here is Wine

Here is bread; here is wine:
Christ is with us: He is with us.
Break the bread; taste the wine:
Christ is with us here.

Here is grace; here is peace:
Christ is with us: He is with us.
Know His grace; find His peace:
feast on Jesus here.

In this bread, there is healing;
in this cup there’s life forever.
In this moment, by the Spirit,
Christ is with us here.

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.

 

My Hope is Built on Nothing Less

My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness hides His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
in every high and stormy gale
my anchor holds within the veil.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

His oath, His covenant, His blood
support me in the whelming flood;
when all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

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.

Sent Forth By Your Blessing

Sent forth by Your blessing,
our true faith confessing,
Your people, O God, from Your table take leave.
The supper is ended:
oh now be extended
the fruits of Your service in all who believe.
The seed of Your teaching
our hungry souls reaching,
shall blossom in action for all humankind.
Your grace shall incite us,
Your love shall unite us
to work for Your kingdom, Your purpose to find.

With praise and thanksgiving
to God ever-living
the task of our everyday life we will face,
our faith ever sharing,
in love ever caring,
embracing as neighbours all those of each race.
One feast that has fed us,
one light that has led us,
unite us as one in Your life that we share.
Then may all the living,
with praise and thanksgiving,
give honour to Christ and His name that we bear.

An Upper Room Did Our Lord Prepare
An upper room did our Lord prepare
For those He loved until the end,
And His disciples still gather there
To celebrate their risen Friend.

A lasting gift Jesus gave His own —
To share His bread, His loving cup;
Whatever burdens may bow us down,
He, by His Cross, shall lift us up.

And after supper, He washed their feet,
For service, too, is sacrament;
In Him our joy shall be made complete —
Sent out to serve, as He was sent.
