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

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.

Here we are, joined in one:
Christ is with us; He is with us.
We’ll proclaim, till He comes,
Jesus crucified.

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

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.
