Prayer of Invocation

We Sing: Come As You Are TiS 693

  1. ’Come as you are: that’s how I want you.
    Come as you are: feel quite at home,
    Close to my heart, loved and forgiven.
    Come as you are: why stand alone?

  2. ’No need to fear, love sets no limits;
    no need to fear, love never ends;
    don’t run away shamed and disheartened,
    rest in my love, trust me again.

  3. ’I came to call sinners, not just the righteous;
    I came to bring peace, not to condemn.
    Each time you fail to live by my promise,
    why do you think I’d love you the less?

  4. ‘Come as you are; that’s how I love you;
    come as you are, trust me again.
    Nothing can change the love that I bear you;
    all will be well, just come as you are.’

Prayer of Adoration and Thanksgiving

We Sing: Sing of the Lord’s Goodness TiS 183

  1. Sing of the Lord’s goodness, Father of all wisdom,
    come to him and bless his name.
    Mercy he has shown us, his love is forever,
    faithful to the end of days.

Come then, all you nations,
sing of your Lord’s goodness
melodies of praise and thanks to God.
Ring out the Lord’s glory,
praise him with your music,
worship him and bless his name.

  1. Power he has wielded, honour is his garment,
    risen from the snares of death.
    His word he has spoken, one bread he has broken,
    new life he now gives to all.

Come then, all you nations,
sing of your Lord’s goodness
melodies of praise and thanks to God.
Ring out the Lord’s glory,
praise him with your music,
worship him and bless his name.

  1. Courage in our darkness, comfort in our sorrow,
    Spirit of our God most high;
    solace for the weary, pardon for the sinner,
    splendour of the living God.

Come then, all you nations,
sing of your Lord’s goodness
melodies of praise and thanks to God.
Ring out the Lord’s glory,
praise him with your music,
worship him and bless his name.

  1. Praise him with your singing, praise him with the trumpet,
    praise God with the lute and harp,
    praise him with the cymbals, praise him with your dancing,
    praise God till the end of days.

Come then, all you nations,
sing of your Lord’s goodness
melodies of praise and thanks to God.
Ring out the Lord’s glory,
praise him with your music,
worship him and bless his name.

Sermon

Music Ministry: My Song in the Night

O Jesus, my Saviour, my song in the night,
Come to us with your tender love, my soul’s delight.
Unto you, O – Lord, in affliction I call
My comfort by day and my song in the night.
The night.

Oh why should we wander so distant from you,
Or – cry in the desert without a way through?
Our comfort and joy, ou-r souls’ de-light,
O Jesus, our Saviour, our song in the night.
The night.

Prayers of the People

The Lord’s Prayer

And now with the confidence of the children of God, let us pray the prayer Jesus taught us saying…

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name,
your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in Heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin
against us.
Save us in the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power
and the glory are yours
now and forever. Amen.

We Sing: May Our Lives and Our Prayers Be One ATAR 680

May our lives and prayers be one
as our hopes shape the roads we walk on.
And when our work and our dreaming’s done.
May our lives and our prayers be one.

  1. Within the rhythm of our days
    we take the time to muse and pray.
    The fears we face, the tears we taste
    we view in light of holy grace.

May our lives and prayers be one
as our hopes shape the roads we walk on.
And when our work and our dreaming’s done.
May our lives and our prayers be one.

  1. We name our deepest hopes and dreams
    for those we love and all in need.
    We picture how the world could be.
    We live the change we want to see.

May our lives and prayers be one
as our hopes shape the roads we walk on.
And when our work and our dreaming’s done.
May our lives and our prayers be one.
