Matthew 5: 1-12
Opening Hymn:
Yahweh is the god of my salvation,
I trust in him and have no fear.
I sing of the joy which his love gives to me
and I draw deeply from the springs of his great kindness.
Open our eyes to the wonder of this moment,
the beginning of another day.
Be with us, Lord, as we break through with each other,
to find the truth and beauty of each friend.
When evening comes and our day of toil is over,
give us rest, O Lord, in the joy of many friends
Communion Hymn:

“What a wonderful world”

Prayers of the Faithful:
Jack, Matt, and Monica Vollebregt
O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed,
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God toThee;
How Great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze;
And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin;
Offertory Song:
I will be Yah-weh who walks with you!
You will be always within My hand!
Take your heart and give it all to Me!
Strong and constant is My love!
Strong and constant is My love !
Should you wander far away from Me,
I will search for you in every land!
Should you call, then you will truly know:
When you know sorrow within your life,
I will come! I will embrace your heart!
Through your pain you will discover Me
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration;
And there proclaim, My God, how great Thou art!
