Sunday service (Easter 6)
16/05/2020
Preacher:
Passage: Acts 17:22-31; John 14:15-21
Service Type:

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what thou dost love,
And do what thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure:
Until with thee I will one will
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with thee the perfect life
Of thine eternity

Edwin Hatch (1835-1889)

 

O God of burning, cleansing flame:
Send the fire!
Your blood-bought gift today we claim:
Send the fire today!
Look down and see this waiting host,
And send the promised Holy Ghost;
We need another Pentecost!
Send the fire today!
Send the fire today!

God of Elijah, hear our cry:
Send the fire!
And make us fit to live or die:
Send the fire today!
To burn up every trace of sin,
To bring the light and glory in,
The revolution now begin!
Send the fire today!
Send the fire today!

It's fire we want, for fire we plead:
Send the fire!
The fire will meet our every need:
Send the fire today!
For strength to always do what's right,
For grace to conquer in the fight,
For power to walk the world in white:
Send the fire today!
Send the fire today!

To make our weak hearts strong and brave:
Send the fire!
To live, a dying world to save:
Send the fire today!
Oh, see us on Your altar lay,
We give our lives to you today,
So crown the offering now we pray:
Send the fire today!
Send the fire today!
Send the fire today!

Music in; Albioni:Adagio in G minor
Music out: Looking to the Rainbow - The Blue Coat School Chapel Choir with Becky Drake

Verse 1

We used to be together each day

Working in our classrooms and then going out to play

We used to meet to sing and to pray

And gathered for assembly to kick off the day

But now the new rule

Means school’s changed

We don’t know when we’ll meet again

Chorus

But even though we’re in lockdown

We won’t be knocked down

‘Cause we’re still a family

And we’re looking to the rainbow

Because we all know

There is hope for you and me

A new day will come!

Verse 2

We’re getting used to learning online

And talking to our friends on WhatsApp or on FaceTime

Even though we are missing PE

There are lots of coaches training us on TV

But now the new rule

Means school’s changed

We don’t know when we’ll meet again

Chorus

But even though we’re in lockdown

We won’t be knocked down

Cos we’re still a family

And we’re looking to the rainbow

Because we all know

There is hope for you and me

(x2)

A new day will come! (x3)
