Songs for the Journey

ANTHEM
Nearer My God to Thee
Barbara Cornish, Anthony Cornish and Elizabeth Cornish-Koop 


THE LORD'S SUPPER
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Lift up your hearts.
We lift them to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give our thanks and praise.


PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen


COMMUNION VOLUNTARY
Come to the Banquet by Faye White
Lindsay Timbs, clarinet


Refrain: Come to the banquet there's a place for you 
Though you may have no money, though you may feel unworthy,
in your strength or in your weakness you are welcome, come. R
See, you are an honored guest, from constant serving you may rest;
so sit you down, be fed and blessed, for you are welcome, come. R
Willing hands have made this bread with yeast and salt and labor sheared.
Let all the hungry ones be fed. It's time for feasting, come. R
Abundant wine, enough for all! Our generous, loving host has called.
The cup of blessing now is poured for sweet communion, come. R

 
COMMUNION PRAYER
Gracious God, we give you thanks that by the witness of your word
and the sharing of this meal 
you have opened our hearts
and eyes to the presence of Christ among us. 
Now send us forth from this place by the power of your Spirit
to tell this good news to the world: 
The Lord has risen indeed! Amen. 

 
HYMN


BENEDICTION
We go nowhere by accident. Wherever we go, 
God is sending us. 
Wherever we are, 
God has put us there. 
God has a purpose in our being there. 
Christ who dwells in us has something He wants to do through us,
where we are…right now!  

Believe this and go in the grace and love and power of the
Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 


POSTLUDE
His Eye Is on the Sparrow
verses sung by Rev. Keith Geiselman, refrain sung by congregation.

1 Why should I feel discouraged, 
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, 
And long for heav’n and home;
When Jesus is my portion? 
My constant Friend is he;
His eye is on the sparrow, 
And I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, 
And I know he watches me.

Refrain:
I sing because I’m happy, 
I sing because I’m free;
For his eye is on the sparrow, 
And I know he watches me.

2 “Let not your heart be troubled,” 
His tender word I hear,
And resting on his goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path he leadeth, 
But one step I may see; 
His eye is on the sparrow, 
And I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, 
And I know he watches me. [Refrain]

3 Whenever I am tempted, 
Whenever clouds arise;
When songs give place to sighing, 
When hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to him, 
From care he sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, 
And I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, 
And I know he watches me. [Refrain]
