First Reading:   Old Testament Ecclesiastes 6: 14-17
read by Sheryl McDonald


The Lord’s my Shepherd

The Lord is my Shepherd and I want to follow
Whoever he leads me, wherever he goes,
Over the mountains, the waters and byways,
Valleys and highways he’s waiting for me.


I want to go to meet him there,
To lay myself down in his love.
The Lord Is my Shepherd and I want to follow
Wherever he leads me, wherever he goes.

And while on the journey to where we are going
He promised to be there to help us along,
And over the mountains we’ll walk on together,
To know all the wonders he’s given to me.

Closing Hymn:

My Peace I leave you

My peace I leave you,
My peace I give you,
Do not let your hearts be afraid.
For I’m returning to my Father,
to prepare a place for you.

When I’m gone I will send my Spirit
who will guide and strengthen you
And your joy will be found in giving
with the peace and love he brings.

Come to me all you who labour
And are burdened down with care.
For I will give you comfort
And rest for your weary hearts

For the peace that I will give you
is not the peace that the world expects.
In the world you will find sorrow
But have faith I have conquered all

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds circling flight
I am the soft starlight at night

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there I do not sleep.
(Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!)
