God of Mercy, God of Grace #39

God of mercy, God of grace,
show the brightness of Your face.
Shine upon us, Saviour, shine;
fill Your world with light divine,
and Your saving health extend
unto earth’s remotest end.

Let the people praise You, Lord;
be by all that live adored.
Let the nations shout and sing
glory to their gracious King;
at Your feet their tribute pay,
and Your holy will obey.

Let the people praise You, Lord;
Earth shall then its fruits afford.
Unto us Your blessing give;
we to You devoted live,
all below and all above,
one in joy and light and love.

Responsive Psalm: Psalm 66:1-9       

Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;
    sing the glory of his name;
    give to him glorious praise.
Say to God, ‘How awesome are your deeds!
Because of your great power, your enemies cringe before you.
All the earth worships you;
    they sing praises to you,
    sing praises to your name.

Come and see what God has done:
he is awesome in his deeds among mortals.
He turned the sea into dry land;
    they passed through the river on foot.
There we rejoiced in him,
    who rules by his might for ever,
whose eyes keep watch on the nations—
let the rebellious not exalt themselves.

Bless our God, O peoples,
    let the sound of his praise be heard,
who has kept us among the living,
and has not let our feet slip.

SUNG RESPONSE: Seek Ye First #625, v. 1 & 3

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God
and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added unto you.
Allelu, Alleluia.

We do not live by bread alone,
but by every word
that proceeds from the mouth of God.
Allelu, Alleluia.

Sermon:  On the Jericho Road  – Rev. Dr. Kay Diviney


Brother, Sister, Let Me Serve You #635

Brother, sister, let me serve you;
let me be as Christ to you;
pray that I may have the grace
to let you be my servant, too.

We are pilgrims on a journey,
and companions on the road;
we are here to help each other
walk the mile and bear the load.

I will hold the Christ-light for you
in the night-time of your fear;
I will hold my hand out to you,
speak the peace you long to hear.

I will weep when you are weeping;
when you laugh, I’ll laugh with you;
I will share your joy and sorrow,
till we’ve seen this journey through.

When we sing to God in Heaven,
we shall find such harmony,
born of all we’ve known together
of Christ’s love and agony.

Brother, sister, let me serve you;
let me be as Christ to you;
pray that I may have the grace to
let you be my servant, too.

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty #321

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.

Praise to the Lord,
and with all that is in me adoring,
all who have life and breath,
come with glad praises outpouring!
Let the “Amen!”
sound from God’s people again,
now and forever adoring.
