Passage: Isaiah 10:33-11:9, John 14: 23-29
Service Type:

 

BE STILL, for the presence of the Lord, the Holy One is here;

Come bow before Him now with reverence and fear.

In Him no sin is found, we stand on holy ground;

Be still, for the presence of the Lord, the Holy One is here.

 

Be still, for the glory of the Lord is shining all around;

He burns with holy fire, with splendour He is crowned.

How awesome is the sight, our radiant King of light!

Be still, for the glory of the Lord is shining all around.

 

Be still, for the power of the Lord is moving in this place;

He comes to cleanse and heal, to minister His grace.

No work too hard for Him, in faith receive from Him;

Be still, for the power of the Lord is moving in this place.

David J. Evans.

 

 

JESUS, STAND AMONG US

At the meeting of our lives;

Be our sweet agreement

At the meeting of our eyes.

O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here;

Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

 

So to You we’re gathering

Out of each and every land;

Christ the love between us

At the joining of our hands.

O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here;

Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

 

Jesus, stand among us

At the breaking of the bread;

Join us as one body

As we worship You, our Head.

O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here;

Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

Graham Kendrick.

 

 

 

GLORIOUS THINGS OF THEE ARE SPOKEN,

Zion, city of our God!

He whose word cannot be broken

Formed thee for His own abode.

On the Rock of Ages founded,

What can shake thy sure repose?

With salvation’s walls surrounded,

Thou mayest smile at all thy foes.

 

See! The streams of living waters,

Springing from eternal love,

Well supply thy sons and daughters,

And all fear of want remove;

Who can faint, whilst such a river

Ever flows their thirst to assuage?

Grace which, like the Lord, the Giver,

Never fails from age to age.

 

Round each habitation hovering,

See the cloud and fire appear!

For a glory and a covering,

Showing that the Lord is near.

He who gives them daily manna,

He who listens when they cry:

Let Him hear the loud hosanna

Rising to His throne on high.

 

Saviour, if of Zion’s city

I, through grace, a member am,

Let the world deride or pity,

I will glory in Thy name.

Fading is the worldling’s pleasure,

All his boasted pomp and show,

Solid joys and lasting treasure

None but Zion’s children know.

            John Newton.
