BLESSING:

 



FIRST HYMN.

 

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God,

And his righteousness,

And all these things shall be given unto you,

Allelu, alleluia.

            Hallelujah, Hallelujah

            Hallelujah, Hallelu, Hallelujah.

 

Man shall not live by bread alone,

But by every word,

That proceeds from the mouth of God,

Allelu, alleluia

 

Ask and it shall be given to you,

Seek and you shall find,

Knock and the door shall be opened up to you.

Allelu, alleluia.

 

SECOND HYMN.

 

Think of all the things we lose,

So many things, I get confused:

Our pencil sharpeners, favourite books,

Our indoor shoes and outdoor boots,

Pocket money down the drain,

Then felt-tip pens and peopleís names.

The worst of all things to be lost

Is just a friend you really trust.

 

Think of all the things we find,

So many things, I bring to mind:

In lofts and cupboards, if you browse,

Are old tin whistles, acting clothes,

Clocks that used to chime, and bits

Of engines and of building kits:

But even better, I believe,

Is just a friend to share them with.

 

Think of the times we lose our nerves,

Weíre feeling sad and no-one cares:

An empty feeling deep inside,

Thereís nowhere else for us to hide.

Thatís the time to call a friend

Whom we can never lose again:

Thereís one friend who is very near,

A friend who takes away our fear.

 


THIRD HYMN.

 

Lord the light of your life is shining

In the midst of the darkness shining;

Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us,

Set us free by the truth you now bring us,

shine on me, shine on me;

Shine , Jesus, shine, fill this land with the Fatherís glory,

Blaze spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire.

Flow, river, flow, flood the nations

with grace and mercy;

send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light

 

Lord, I come to your awesome presence,

From the shadows into your radiance;

By the blood I may enter your brightness,

Search me, try me, consume all my darkness,

shine on me, shine on me;

Shine , Jesus, shine, fill this land with the Fatherís glory,

Blaze spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire.

Flow, river, flow, flood the nations

with grace and mercy;

send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light

 

As we gaze on your kingly brightness

So our faces display your likeness,

Ever changing from glory to glory,

Mirrored here may our lives tell your story,

shine on me, shine on me;

Shine , Jesus, shine, fill this land with the Fatherís glory,

Blaze spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire.

Flow, river, flow, flood the nations

with grace and mercy;

send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light
