SONG   Why, Ask Why?   (Solo: Margaret Kitt)

READINGS   Natalie Myles and Ron Steele

SONG   Put your hand in the hand (All sing)

Chorus:   Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the waters
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea,
Take a look at yourself and you can look at others differently
By putting your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee.

1   Ev’ry time I look into the holy book I want to tremble
When I read about the part where the carpenter cleared the temple
For the buyers and the sellers were no different fellas
From what I profess to be, and it causes me shame to know
We’re not the people we should be.   Chorus

2   My mother taught me how to pray before I reached the age of seven
She said, “There’ll come a time when there’ll be room for you in Heaven
But I’m feeling rather guilty ’bout the times I forget to trust and pray
And forget all He said… but know that He will still make room.   Chorus

READINGS   Shirley Reading and Graham Spence

SONG   Give me Jesus   (Solo:   Kate Lewis)

READING   Monica Nicholas

DUET   In this Very Room (Kate and Margaret)

READING   Geoff Braybrooke

SONG   This Little Light of Mine (All Sing)

Chorus:   This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine (x 3)
Every day, every day, every day, every way
I’m gonna let my little light shine.

1
Light that shines is the light of love
Lights the darkness from above
Shines on me and it shines on you
Shows what the power of love can do
Gonna shine my light both far and near
Gonna shine my light both bright and clear
Where there’s darkness in this land
Gonna let my little light shine.   Chorus

2
Monday He gave me the gift of love
Tuesday peace came from above
Wednesday He told me to have more faith
Thursday He gave me a little more grace
Friday He told me to watch and pray
Saturday He told me what to say
Sunday He gave me power divine
To let my little light shine.   Chorus

SONG   What a Friend we have in Jesus (All Sing)

During this song a collection will be taken up to help cover the costs of the Cathedral floral display and Jazz Service. Any surplus funds to community charities.

1
What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear,
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer,
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

2
Have we trials and temptations,
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged:
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness:
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

3
Have we trials and temptations,
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged:
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness:
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

4
Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Jesus is our only refuge:
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in Prayer,
In his arms he’ll take and shield you,
You will find a solace there.

PRAYERS   Sung responses of the people:
Refrain:   WE REALLY WANT TO THANK YOU, LORD.
We really want to bless your name.
Hallelujah! Jesus is our King!

BLESSING

SONG   How Great Thou Art (All Together)

1
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
Thy pow’r throughout the universe displayed.

2
When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Refrain: Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee
How great Thou Art, how great Thou art,
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

3
And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Refrain:

4
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

Refrain:

You are invited to leave at this point, or to remain while the band plays. You are also welcome to wander around the Cathedral to look at the floral display:
