Introit: Spirit In Me

Anthem: Lead Us Safely Home

Hymn: Whatever You Do
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1.
"Whatever you do to the least ones of these,  
I tell you in truth that you do unto me!"  
Lord Jesus, you taught us! May we learn anew  
That when we serve others, we also serve you.

2.
When poor, waiting children pray hunger will end,  
When those long-forgotten cry out for a friend,  
When thirsty ones whisper, "O Lord, where are you?" —  
We hear, in their longing, that you're calling, too.

3.
In prisons and jails, Lord, we find a surprise;  
We see you in people whom others despise.  
At hospital bedsides we offer a prayer  
And find, when we visit the sick, you are there.

5.
"Lord, when did we see you?" Your teaching is clear  
That when we serve others, we're serving you here.  
And when your church heeds you and helps those in pain,  
Then out of the chaos, hope rises again.

Benediction: Spirit God, Be Our Breath
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1. 
Spirit God: be our breath, be our song.  
Blow through us, bringing strength to move on.  
Our world seems inward, defensive, withdrawn…  
Spirit God, be our song.

4.
Spirit God: be our breath, be our song.  
Blow through us, bringing strength to move on.  
Through change, through challenge, we’ll greet the new dawn…  
Spirit God, be our song.
