I Will Call Upon the Lord

I will call upon the Lord
(I will call upon the Lord)

Who is worthy to be praised,
(Who is worthy to be praised,)

so shall I be saved from my enemies.
(so shall I be saved from my enemies.)

The Lord liveth
and blessed be the Rock
and may the God of my salvation be exalted;
the Lord liveth
and blessed be the Rock
and may the god of my salvation be exalted.

(Words and Music: Michael O’Shields © Sound III inc. 1981)

Come, Let Us to the Lord Our God

Come, let us to the Lord our God
with contrite hearts return;
our God is gracious, nor will leave
the desolate to mourn.

God’s voice commands the tempest forth
and stills the stormy wave;
God’s arm is strong and swift to strike,
but also strong to save.

The night of sorrow long has reigned,
but dawn shall bring us light;
God shall appear, and we shall rise
with gladness in God’s sight.

Then let us know, let us press on
to know our God the Lord,
whose coming is as sure as dawn,
whose name shall be adored.

ANTHEM: God is There

 

How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in God’s excellent word!
What more can God say
than to you hath been said,
To you, who for refuge, to Jesus have fled?

“Fear not, I am with thee,
Oh be not dismayed!
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee
and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.”

“When through the deep waters
I call thee to go,
The rivers of woe shall not thee overflow;
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.”

“When through fiery trials
thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.”

The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
I will not — I will not — desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell
should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never — no, never — no, never forsake!

I Am the Church, You Are the Church

I am the church! You are the church!
We are the church together!
All who follow Jesus, all around the world!
Yes, we’re the church together!

The church is not a building;
the church is not a steeple;
the church is not a resting place;
the church is a people.
I am the church! You are the church!
We are the church together!
All who follow Jesus, all around the world!
Yes, we’re the church together!

We’re many kinds of people,
with many kinds of faces,
all colours and all ages, too,
from all times and places.
I am the church! You are the church!
We are the church together!
All who follow Jesus, all around the world!
Yes, we’re the church together!

And when the people gather,
there’s singing and there’s praying;
there’s laughing and there’s crying sometimes,
all of it saying:
I am the church! You are the church!
We are the church together!
All who follow Jesus, all around the world!
Yes, we’re the church together!

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.

Oh How He Loves You and Me

Oh, how He loves you and me,
Oh how He loves you and me.
He gave His life,
what more could He give?
Oh, how He loves you;
Oh, how He loves me;
Oh, how He loves you and me.

His love for sinners to show.
What He did there

Come Let Us Sing of A Wonderful Love

Come, let us sing of a wonderful love,
tender and true, tender and true;
out of the heart of the Father above,
streaming to me and to you:
wonderful love, wonderful love
dwells in the heart of the Father above.

Jesus the Saviour this Gospel to tell
joyfully came, joyfully came,
Came with the helpless and hopeless to dwell,
sharing their sorrow and shame;
seeking the lost, seeking the lost,
saving, redeeming at measureless cost.

Jesus is seeking the wanderers yet;
Why do they roam? Why do they roam?.
Love only waits to forgive and forget;
home, weary wanderers, home:
wonderful love, wonderful love
dwells in the heart of the Father above.

RESPONSIVE PSALM: Psalm 8

Reader: Evelyn McCarthy

Psalm 8 – Divine Majesty

1 O Lord, our Sovereign,
how majestic is Your name in all the earth!
You have set Your glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouths of babes and infants
You have founded a bulwark because of Your foes,
to silence the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I look at Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
the moon and the stars that You have established;
4 what are human beings that You are mindful
of them, mortals that You care for them?

5 Yet You have made them a little lower than God,
and crowned them with glory and honor.
6 You have given them dominion over the works
of Your hands;
You have put all things under their feet,

7 all sheep and oxen,
and also the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord, our Sovereign,
how majestic is Your name in all the earth!

SUNG RESPONSE:  Thy Word

We Are One in the Spirit

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,
we are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,
and we pray that all unity will one day be restored,
and they’ll know we are Christians

and they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand,
we will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand,
and together we’ll spread the news
that god is in our land,
and they’ll know we are Christians
by our love, by our love,
and they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

We will work with each other, we will work side by side,
we will work with each other, we will work side by side,
and we’ll guard each one’s dignity
and save each one’s pride,
and they’ll know we are Christians
by our love, by our love,
and they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

Come, Let Us Sing to the Lord Our Song

Come, let us sing to the Lord our song:
we have stood silently too long;
surely the Lord deserves our praise,
so joyfully thank God for our days.

O thirsty soul, come drink at the well;
God’s living waters will never fail.
Surely the Lord will help us to stand,
strengthened and comforted by God’s hand.

You dwell among us and cause us to pray,
and walk with each other following Your way;
our precious brothers and sisters will grow
in the fulfilling love they know.

Deserts shall bloom and mountains shall sing
to the desire of all living things.
Come, all you creatures, high and low,
let your praises endlessly flow.

Solo: Faith to Carry On  – Scott MacDonald

 

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.

New Every Morning is the Love

New ever 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!
