 COMMUNION:

 

Unless a Grain of Wheat (Bernadette Farrell)

YouTube link to song

 

Refrain: 

Unless a grain of wheat shall fall

Upon the ground and die,

It remains but a single grain with no life.

 

If we have died with him then we shall live with him;

If we hold firm, we shall reign with him. [Refrain]

 

If anyone serves me then they must follow me;

Wherever I am my servants will be. [Refrain]

 

Make your home in me as I make mine in you;

Those who remain in me bear much fruit. [Refrain]

 

If you remain in me and my word lives in you,

Then you will be my disciples. [Refrain]

 

Those who love me are loved by my Father;

We shall be with them and dwell in them. [Refrain]

 

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you;

Peace which the world cannot give is my gift. [Refrain]

 

 

Flow River Flow (Bob Hurd)

YouTube link to song

 

Refrain: 

Flow river flow, flow over me

O living water, poured out for free

O living water, flow over me

 

You will be mine and I will be your God

For I will wash you clean

And a new heart, a heart of flesh and feeling

I will place within you for your heart of stone

[Refrain]

 

The blind shall see, the mute shall find a voice

The lame shall leap for joy

Rivers will flow into dry and barren desert,

Flowers bloom in splendor, glory fill the land

[Refrain]

 

Whoever drinks the water I will give

Will never thirst again

The drink I give is an ever-flowing river

Welling up within you to give eternal life

[Refrain]

 

 

RECESSIONAL/SEND FORTH:

 

This Day God Gives Me (James Quinn)

YouTube link to song

 

This day God gives me, strength of high heaven

Sun and moon shining, flame in my hearth

Flashing of lightning, wind in its swiftness,

Deeps of the ocean, firmness of earth

 

This day God sends me, strength as my guardian

Might to uphold me, wisdom as guide

Your eyes are watchful, your ears are list’ning

Your lips are speaking, friend at my side

 

God’s way is my way, God’s shield is ‘round me

God’s host defends me, saving from ill

Angels of heaven, drive from me always

All that would harm me, stand by me still

 

Rising I thank you, mighty and strong one

King of creation, giver of rest

Firmly confessing, three-ness of persons

Oneness of Godhead, trinity blest
