Preacher:
Passage: John 11:1-45
Service Type:

I, the Lord of sea and sky

I, the Lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save

I, who made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart

I, the Lord of snow and rain
I have borne my people's pain
I have wept for love of them
They turn away

I will break their hearts of stone
Give them hearts for love alone
Who will speak my word to them
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart

I, the Lord of wind and flame
I will tend the poor and lame
I will set a feast for them
My hand will save

Finest bread I will provide
'Til their hearts be satisfied
I will give my life to them
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart

Dan Schutte

 

Thy hand O God has guided

Thy hand, O God, has guided

thy flock, from age to age;

their wondrous tale is written,

full clear, on every page;

thy fathers owned thy goodness,

and we their deeds record;

and both of this bear witness;

one Church, one Faith, one Lord.

 

Thy heralds brought glad tidings

to greatest as to least;

they bade men rise, and hasten

to share the great King's feast;

and this was all their teaching,

in every deed and word,

to all alike proclaiming

one Church, one Faith, one Lord.

 

Through many a day of darkness,

through many a scene of strife,

the faithful few fought bravely,

to guard the nation's life.

Their gospel of redemption,

sin pardoned, man restored,

was all in this enfolded:

one Church, one Faith, one Lord.

 

Thy mercy will not fail us,

nor leave thy work undone;

with thy right hand to help us,

thy victory shall be won;

and then, by all creation,

thy name shall be adored,

and this shall be their anthem:

one Church, one Faith, one Lord.

 

Edward Hayes Plumptre (1821-1891)
