GREETING

CENTERING TIME

Centering Duet: "The Power of Your Love" by Geoff Bullock, arr by Jane Holstein.  

Sung by Lori Hughes and Gary Young                                

Prayer

 

HYMN OF PRAISE      “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee” 

Joyful, joyful, we adore thee,

God of glory, Lord of love;
hearts unfold like flowers before thee,

opening to the sun above.

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;

drive the dark of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness,
fill us with the light of day!

All thy works with joy surround thee,
earth and heaven reflect thy rays,
stars and angels sing around thee,
center of unbroken praise.

Field and forest, vale and mountain,
flowery meadow, flashing sea,
chanting bird and flowing fountain,
call us to rejoice in thee.

Thou art giving and forgiving,
ever blessing, ever blest,
wellspring of the joy of living,
ocean depth of happy rest!

Thou our Father, Christ our brother,
all who live in love are thine;
teach us how to love each other,
lift us to the joy divine.


Mortals, join the mighty chorus,
which the morning stars began;
love divine is reigning o’er us,
binding all within its span.

Ever singing, march we onward,
victors in the midst of strife;
joyful music leads us sunward,
in the triumph song of life.

 

TIME OF PRAYER           “Nothing Can Trouble”

Nothing can trouble,
nothing can frighten.
Those who seek God
shall never go wanting.

Nothing can trouble,
nothing can frighten,
God alone fills us.

CLOSING HYMN               “Your Love is Alive”

The whole earth is filled the whole earth is filled

Filled with Your glory,

filled with Your glory

My whole life is filled my whole life is filled

Filled with Your glory

filled with Your glory

Chorus

Your love is alive

Your love is alive

Your love is beating inside of

My heart and my soul and my mind

Your love is alive

Your love is alive

Your love is leading me into

The Way and the Truth and the Life

Bridge

When blinded by darkness or lost out at sea

Even in death You're always with me

When I am fearful I won't be afraid

O Spirit remind me Your presence remains
