*HYMN – All Things Bright and Beautiful – #65

All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful; the Lord God made them all.

  1. Each little flow’r that opens, Each little bird that sings,
    He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings.


  1. The purple-headed mountain, The river running by,
    The sunset, and the morning That brightens up the sky.


  1. The cold wind in the winter, Then pleasant summer sun,
    The ripe fruit in the garden: He made them every one.


  1. He gave us eyes to see them, And lips that we might tell
    How great is God Almighty, Who has made all things well.

God of steadfast love, we long for a clear understanding of your will. Our hearts seek you. Our ears listen closely for your voice. Guide us. May this time of worship draw us to you, Christ Jesus – blessing us with a sense of direction for our lives as vital parts of your whole Church. Renew us from within, we pray; so that nothing we face will frighten or discourage us. With amazement, we marvel at the splendor of your works, Creator God! Fill us with an ever-growing love for you. Amen.

*PRAISE RESPONSE – Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord; Open the eyes of my heart.
I want to see You, I want to see You, I want to see You.
Open the eyes of my heart, Lord; Open the eyes of my heart.
I want to see You, I want to see You.

To see you high and lifted up, Shining in the light of Your glory.
Pour out Your power and love As we sing holy, holy, holy.


Holy, Holy, Holy,
Holy, Holy, Holy,
Holy, Holy, Holy,
I want to see You.

*HYMN – One Bread, One Body – worship booklet, pp. 72-73

One bread, one body, one Lord of all, one cup of blessing which we bless.
And we, though many throughout the earth,
we are one body in this one Lord.

  1. Gentile or Jew, servant or free, woman or man, no more.


  1. Many the gifts, many the works, one in the Lord of all.


  1. Grain for the fields, scattered and grown, gathered to one, for all.


Responsive Invitation to Christ’s Table
One: Jesus Christ invites, “As you eat this bread, remember me.”
All: Through the broken bread, we remember the sacrifice of Christ.
One: Jesus Christ invites, “As you drink this cup, remember me.”
All: Through the communion cup, we remember the love of Christ.
One: The gifts of God for the people of God.
All: Thanks be to God. Our Savior welcomes everyone to this table!

*HYMN – I Then Shall Live – #133

  1. I then shall live as one who’s been forgiven;
    I’ll walk with joy to know my debts are paid.
    I know my name is clear before my Father;
    I am His child, and I am not afraid.
    So greatly pardoned, I’ll forgive my brother;
    The law of love I gladly will obey.
  2. I then shall live as one who’s learned compassion;
    I’ve been so loved that I’ll risk loving, too.
    I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges;
    I dare to see another’s point of view.
    And when relationships demand commitment,
    Then I’ll be there to care and follow through.
  3. Your kingdom come around and thru and in me,
    Your pow’r and glory, let them shine thru me;
    Your Hallowed Name, O may I bear with honor,
    And may Your living Kingdom come in me.
    The Bread of Life, O may I share with honor,
    And may You feed a hungry world thru me.
