Welcome & Announcements

‘How Great Thou Art’ by Howard Morrison

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, which art in ‘heaven,
hallowed be thy name
thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory, for ever and ever. AMEN

Reading – Weep Not For Me
Weep not for me though l am gone into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long on my souls sweet flight.
l am at peace, my souls at rest.
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed, for all those many years.
There is no pain, l suffer not.

The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.

Celebrant: Brian Frost
Funeral Director: Ross Gannon
Piper: Ken McLoughlin

Remember not my fight for breath.
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

Reading – Count Your Garden
Count your garden by the flowers…
Never by the leaves that fall.
Count your days by golden hours…
Don’t remember clouds at all.
Count your nights by stars…
Not shadows.
Count your years with smiles…
Not tears.
Count your blessings…
Not your troubles.
Count your age by friends…
Not years.
