    Sunday Service for 20th September

     

     

     The songs this Sunday

     

    Lord of creation, to you be all praise!
    Most might your working,
    most wondrous your ways!
    Your glory and might are beyond us to tell,
    And yet in the heart
    of the humble you dwell.


    Lord of all power, I give you my will,
    In joyful obedience your tasks to fulfil.
    Your bondage is freedom;
    your service is song;
    And, held in your keeping,
    my weakness is strong.


    Lord of all wisdom, I give you my mind,
    Rich truth that surpasses
    my knowledge to find;
    What eye has not seen
    and what ear has not heard
    Is taught by your Spirit
    and shines from your word.


    Lord of the bounty, I give you my heart;
    I praise and adore you for all you impart,
    Your love to inspire me,
    your counsel to guide,
    Your presence to shield me,
    whatever betide.


    Lord of all being, I give you my all;
    If I should disown you, I stumble and fall;
    But, led in your service your word to obey.
    I’ll walk in your freedom
    to the end of the way.

     

     

     

     

    Will your anchor hold in the storms of life

    When the clouds unfold their wings of strife

    When the strong tides lift and the cables strain

    Will your anchor drift or firm remain

     

    We have an anchor that keeps the soul

    Steadfast and sure while the billows roll

    Fastened to the Rock which cannot move

    Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour's love

     

    Will your anchor hold in the straits of fear

    When the breakers roar and the reef is near

    While the surges  rave and the wild winds blow

    Shall the angry waves then your bark o'er flow

     

    Will your anchor hold in the floods of death

    When the waters cold chill your latest breath

    On the rising tide it can never fail

    While your anchor holds within the veil

     

    Will your eyes behold through the morning light

    The city of gold and the harbor bright

    Will you  anchor safe by the heav'nly shore

    When lifes storms are past forevermore

    Priscilla J. Owens

     

     

     

    Let us break bread together with the Lord
    Let us break bread together with the Lord
    When I fall on my knees
    With my face to the rising sun
    O Lord have mercy on me

     

    Let us drink wine together with the Lord
    Let us drink wine together with the Lord
    When I fall on my knees
    With my face to the rising sun
    O Lord have mercy on me

     

    Let us praise God together in the Lord
    Let us praise God together in the Lord
    When I fall on my knees
    With my face to the rising sun
    O Lord have mercy on me

    William Farley Smith

     

     

    Prayer after communion

    Lord we thank you with all our hearts
    You are the Source of all grace
    we thank you for all the blessings
    that we have received from you,
    especially through this act of communion,
    in which you are ever present.

    We offer you all that we are and all that we have

    May your will be done in me and through me

    Now and forever
    amen

     

     

     

    God who sets us on a journey
    to discover, dream and grow,
    lead us as you led your people
    in the desert long ago;
    journey inward, journey outward,
    stir the spirit, stretch the mind,
    love for God and self and neighbour
    marks the way that Christ defined.

    Exploration brings new insights,
    changes, choices we must face;
    give us wisdom in deciding,
    mindful always of your grace;
    should we stumble, lose our bearings,
    find it hard to know what’s right,
    we regain our true direction
    focused on the Jesus light.

    End our longing for the old days,
    grant the vision that we lack –
    once we’ve started on this journey
    there can be no turning back;
    let us travel light, discarding
    excess baggage from our past,
    cherish only what’s essential,
    choosing treasure that will last.

    When we set up camp and settle
    to avoid love’s risk and pain,
    you disturb complacent comfort,
    pull the tent pegs up again;
    keep us travelling in the knowledge
    you are always at our side;
    give us courage for the journey,
    Christ our goal and Christ our guide.
