Sunday 15th November 2020 Worship

Introduction & Call to Worship

Hymn STF 608 All Praise to our redeeming Lord

  1. All praise to our redeeming Lord,
    who joins us by his grace,
    and bids us, each to each restored,
    together seek his face.
  2. He bids us build each other up;
    and, gathered into one,
    to our high calling's glorious hope
    we hand in hand go on.
  3. The gift which he on one bestows,
    we all delight to prove;
    the grace through every vessel flows,
    in purest streams of love.
  4. E'en now we think and speak the same,
    and cordially agree;
    concentred all, through Jesu's name,
    in perfect harmony.
  5. We all partake the joy of one,
    the common peace we feel,
    a peace to sensual minds unknown,
    a joy unspeakable.
    And if our fellowship below
    in Jesus be so sweet,
    what heights of rapture shall we know
    when round his throne we meet!
    Charles Wesley (1707-1788) Reproduced from Singing the Faith Electronic Words Edition, number 608

Mediation on Hymn 558

Jesus Meets UsJesus walks on water
  1. Lord, you have come to the seashore,
    neither searching for the rich nor the wise,
    desiring only that I should follow.
    O Lord, with your eyes set upon me,
    gently smiling, you have spoken my name.
    All I longed for I have found by the water,
    at your side I will seek other shores.
  2. Lord, see my goods, my possessions;
    in my boat you find no power, no wealth.
    Will you accept, then, my nets and labour?
  3. Lord, take my hands, and direct them.
    Help me spend myself in seeking the lost,
    returning love for the love you gave me.
  4. Lord, as I drift on the waters,
    be the resting-place of my restless heart,
    my life's companion, my friend and refuge.

Hymn STF 615 Let love be real

  1. Let love be real, in giving and receiving,
    without the need to manage and to own;
    a haven free from posing and pretending,
    where every weakness may be safely known.
    Give me your hand, along the desert pathway,
    give me your love wherever we may go.
    As God loves us, so let us love each other:
    with no demands, just open hands and space to grow.
  2. Let love be real, not grasping or confining,
    that strange embrace that holds yet sets us free;
    that helps us face the risk of truly living,
    and makes us brave to be what we might be.
    Give me your strength when all my words are weakness;
    give me your love in spite of all you know.
  3. Let love be real, with no manipulation,
    no secret wish to harness or control;
    let us accept each other's incompleteness,
    and share the joy of learning to be whole.
    Give me your hope through dreams and disappointments;
    give me your trust when all my failings show.
