Here I Am to Worship

Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness,
Opened my eyes, let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore You,
Hope of a life spent with You.

So here I am to worship;
Here I am to bow down;
Here I am to say that You’re my God.
And You’re altogether lovely,
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me.

King of all days, oh, so highly exalted,
Glorious in heaven above,
Humbly You came
To the earth You created,
All for love’s sake became poor.

So here I am to worship;
Here I am to bow down;
Here I am to say that You’re my God.
And You’re altogether lovely,
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me.

And I’ll never know how much it cost
to see my sin upon that cross.
I’ll never know how much it cost
to see my sin upon that cross.
I’ll never know how much it cost
to see my sin upon that cross.

So here I am to worship;
Here I am to bow down;
Here I am to say that
You’re my God.
And You’re altogether lovely,
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me.

God’s Name Forever Shall Endure

God’s name forever shall endure,
and like the sun shall last:
all shall be blest in You, O God,
and nations call You blest.

Blest be the God of Israel,
our God, the Mighty Lord,
for You alone do wondrous works,
that sound Your name abroad.

Now bless-ed be Your glorious name
to all eternity:
the whole earth let Your glory fill.
Amen, so let it be.

SUNG RESPONSE:
(From Brother, Sister, Let Me Serve You, verse 2)

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.

SOLO: To Every Thing There is a Season

 

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.

BENEDICTION:

May the Lord Bless You

May the Lord bless you,
May the Lord keep you;
may the Lord lift up
His face to shine on You.

May the Lord bless you,
May the Lord keep you;
may the Lord lift up
His face to shine on You.
