Welcome & Announcements


Call to Worship | St Patrick’s Breastplate

Credit: Traditional Celtic Prayer (revised)

We gather today
  through a mighty strength:
    the invocation of the Trinity;
  through belief in the Threeness
    and confession of the Oneness
    of the Creator of creation.

We gather today through
  God’s strength to pilot us,
  God’s eye to look before us,
  God’s wisdom to guide us,
  God’s way to lie before us,
  God’s shield to protect us,

  God's ear to hear us,
  God's word to speak for us,
  God's hand to guard us,
  God's way to lie before us,
  God's shield to protect us,
  God's host to secure us. Amen.

Come Thou Fount

Lyrics: Robert Robinson, Martin Madan | Tune (“Nettleton): Unknown (first published by John Wyeth)

Come thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise His name I'm fixed upon it
The name of God's redeeming love

Hitherto thy love has blest me
Thou hast brought me to this place
And I know thy hand will bring me
Safely home by thy good grace
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He to rescue me from danger
Interposed his precious blood

Oh to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be
Let thy goodness like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to thee
Prone to wander, Lord I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for thy courts above

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for thy courts above

Saviour Like A Shepherd Lead Us (Alternate Melody)

Lyrics: Dorothy A. Thrupp | Arr: Leigh Nash (Hymns & Sacred Songs album)

Saviour, like a shepherd lead us
Much we need thy tender care
In thy pleasant pastures feed us
For our use thy folds prepare

    Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus
    Thou hast bought us, thine we are
    Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus
    Thou hast bought us, thine we are

We are thine, thou dost befriend us
Be the guardian of our way
Keep thy flock, from sin defend us
Seek us when we go astray

    Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus
    Hear oh hear us when we pray
    Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus
    Hear oh hear us when we pray

Thou hast promised to receive us
Poor and sinful though we be
Thou hast mercy to relieve us
Grace to cleanse and power to free

    Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus
    We will early turn to thee
    Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus
    We will early turn to thee

Poem | For the Interim Time (excerpts)

by John O’Donohue (from To Bless the Space Between Us, 119)

No place looks like itself, loss of outline
Makes everything look strangely in-between
Unsure of what has been, or what might come.

In this wan light, even trees seem groundless.

You are in this time of interim
Where everything seems withheld.

The path you took to get here has washed out;
The way forward is still concealed from you.

The old is not old enough to have died away;
The new is still too young to be born.

You cannot lay claim to anything:
In this place of dusk, your eyes are blurred;
And there is no mirror.

As far as you can, hold your confidence.
Do not allow your confusion to squander
This call which is loosening
Your roots in false ground,
That you might come free
From all you have outgrown.

Good to Me

2013 © Audrey Assad (revised)

I put all my hope in the truth of your promise
I steady my heart on the ground of your goodness
When I'm bowed down with sorrow I will lift up your name
And the foxes in the vineyard will not steal my joy

    Because you are good to me, good to me
    You are good to me, good to me
    You are good to me

I lift up my eyes to the hills: where is my help found?
Your voice fills the night – raise my head up to hear the sound
Though fires burn all around me, I will praise you my God
And the foxes in the vineyard will not steal my joy

Your goodness and mercy shall follow me
All my life, I’ll trust in your promise

Prayers of the People | Kyrie

Lord, in your mercy,
    hear our prayer.

Lord have mercy,
Christ have mercy.
Lord have mercy,
Christ have mercy.

Scripture | Psalm 23 (NRSV)

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
    he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths
    for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
    I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff—
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
    my whole life long.

Homily | You Are With Me

All The Way My Savior Leads Me

Original Lyrics (revised): Fanny Jane Crosby Tune & Chorus Lyrics: Chris Tomlin & Matt Redman

All the way my Savior leads me
Who have I to ask beside?
How could I doubt his tender mercy
Who through life has been my guide?

All the way my Savior leads me
Cheers each winding path I tread
Gives me grace for every trial
Feeds me with the living Bread

    You lead me and keep me from falling
    You carry me close to your heart
    And surely your goodness and mercy
    Will follow me (will follow me)

All the way my Savior leads me
Oh the fullness of his love
Oh the sureness of his promise
In the triumph of his blood

When my being clothed immortal
Wings its flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages:
“Jesus led me all the way!
Jesus led me all the way!”

All the way my Savior leads me (Repeat)
