Eulogy   Marie & Briar

Opening Hymn   Hosea

Come back to me with all your heart
Don’t let fear keep us apart
Tree’s do bend, though straight and tall
So must we to others call.galbraith


Long have I waited for your coming home to me
and living deeply our new life.

The wilderness will lead you
To your heart where I will speak
Integrity and justice
With tenderness you shall know.


You shall sleep secure with peace
Faithfulness will be your joy.

Reading    2 Timothy 4: 6-8
Aline Lucy


The Lord’s My Shepherd

The Lord is my Shepherd, and I want to follow,
wherever he leads me, wherever he goes.
Over the mountains, the waters and by-ways,
valleys and highways he’s waiting for me.

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.

Gospel   Matthew 11 : 25-30

Communion Hymn

Be Still My Soul

Be still, my soul: the Lord is on your side;
bear patiently the cross of grief and pain;
leave to your God to order and provide;
in every change he faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly friend
through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: your God will undertake
to guide the future as he has the past.
Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake,
all now mysterious shall be clear at last.
Be still, my soul: the tempests still obey
his voice, who ruled them once on Galilee.

Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart
and all is darkened in the vale of tears,
then shalt thou better know his love, his heart,
who comes to soothe thy sorrow, and thy fears.
Be still, my soul: thy Jesus can repay
from his own fullness all he takes away.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hast’ning on
when we shall be forever with the Lord,
when disappointment, grief and fear are gone,
sorrow forgot, love’s purest joy restored.
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past,
all safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

Commendation Prayer   Father Simon Story

Hymn  May The Choirs Of Angels

May the choirs of angels come to greet you.
May they speed you to paradise.
May the Lord enfold you in his mercy
May you find eternal life.

Soloist   The Lord is my light and my help
It is he who protects me from harm.
The Lord is the strength of my days
Before whom should I tremble with fear.


Soloist   There is one thing I ask of the Lord
That he grant me my heartfelt desire
To dwell in the courts of our God
Ev’ry day of my life in his presence.


Recessional Hymn

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound.
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I’m found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fear relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come;
‘Tis grace hath brought us safe thus far,
And grace will read us home.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun.
