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

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.

Faithfulness will be your joy.

Response: “THANKS BE TO GOD”

PSALM RESPONSE:  Please remain seated

THE LORD’S MY SHEPHERD

The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want,
He makes me down to lie,
In pastures green, He leadeth me,
The quiet waters by.

My soul He doth restore again,
And me to walk doth make,
Within the paths of righteousness,
E’en for His own name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill,
For Thou art with me, and Thy rod
And staff me comfort still.

My table Thou hast furnished
In presence of my foes,
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life,
Shall surely follow me,
And in God’s house for evermore
My dwelling-place shall be.

GOSPEL READING: Please Stand Mathew Ch5: V1-12
Response: “PRAISE TO YOU LORD JESUS CHRIST:

PRAYERS OF THE FAITHFUL:
Read by Marcus Francis
Response: “LORD HEAR OUR PRAYER”

THE LORD’S PRAYER:

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 from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.

COMMUNION HYMN

MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF YOUR PEACE

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love.
Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord.
And where there’s doubt, true faith in you.

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness – only light.
And where there’s sadness ever joy.

Oh, Master, grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved, as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to each one that we receive,
And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.

FINAL PRAYERS OF COMMENDATION: Please Stand

Response: “RECEIVE HER SOUL AND PRESENT HER TO GOD THE MOST HIGH”

RECESSIONAL HYMN:

STRONG AND CONSTANT

I will be Yahweh who walks with you!
You will be always within My hand!
Take your heart and give it all to Me!
Strong and constant is My love!
Strong and constant is My love!

Should you wonder far away from Me,
I will search for you in every land!
Should you call, then you will truly know;
Strong and constant is My love!
Strong and constant is My love!

When you know sorrow within your life,
I will come! I will embrace your heart!
Through your pain you will discover Me!
Strong and constant is My love!
Strong and constant is My love!
