Psalm 105 Parts One and Two

Refrain:
Bless God, my soul. Hallelujah!

Give thanks and call on God's name. Make known to the nations what God has done. Sing, O sing the songs of praise; tell of all God's wonderful deeds. Exult in God's holy name; let those who seek God be joyful in heart.

Refrain:
Bless God, my soul. Hallelujah!

Turn for help to the One who is your strength; seek God's presence continually. Remember the marvels the Most High has done, the wonders and judgements God has given, O children of Abraham and Sarah, God's servants,   O offspring of Israel, chosen of God.

Refrain:
Bless God, my soul. Hallelujah!

You are the eternal God, your justice reaches every corner of the earth. You are ever mindful of your covenant,   the promise you gave to a thousand generations, the covenant you made with Sarah and Abraham, the oath you gave to Isaac. You confirmed it for Jacob as binding. To Israel your everlasting covenant you declared, 'To you I give the land of Canaan, as your appointed inheritance.'

Refrain:
Bless God, my soul. Hallelujah!

You called down famine on the land, and cut off the supply of bread. But you sent one ahead of them, Joseph, whom they had sold as a slave. His feet were hurt with fetters, his neck collared with iron; until his predictions came true, your word tested him. Then the king sent and released him, the ruler of nations set him free. He made Joseph master of his house, ruler of all his possessions, to correct his officials at will, to teach his counsellors wisdom.

Refrain:
Bless God, my soul. Hallelujah!

Introit: There is Room for All
Performed by Stephen Cocks

There is room for all in the shadow of God’s wing;
there is room for all, sheltered in God’s love.
And I rejoice and sing, “My refuge and my rock, in whom I trust.”
There is room for all, there is room for all!
(Repeat)

Hymn: Morning Has Broken
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1.
Morning has broken like the first morning,  
blackbird has spoken like the first bird.  
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!  
Praise for them, springing fresh from the Word!

2.
Sweet the rain’s new fall sunlit from heaven,
like the first dew fall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
sprung in completeness where God’s feet pass.

3.
Ours is the sunlight! Ours is the morning
born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation, praise every morning,
God’s recreation of the new day!

Hymn: What a Friend We Have in Jesus
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1. 
What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear,  
all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

2. 
Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful, who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.

3. 
Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
Christ the Saviour is our refuge; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do our friends despise, forsake us? Are we tempted to despair?
Jesus' strength will shield our weakness, and we'll find new courage there.

Hymn: Grant Us, God, the Grace
Performed by Stephen Cocks

Grant us, God, the grace of giving,
with a spirit large and free,
that ourselves and all our living
we may offer faithfully.

Hymn: Deep in Our Hearts
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1.
Deep in our hearts there is a common vision;
deep in our hearts there is a common song;
deep in our hearts there is a common story,
telling Creation that we are one.

2.
Deep in our hearts there is a common purpose;
deep in our hearts there is a common goal;
deep in our hearts there is a sacred message,
justice and peace in harmony.

3.
Deep in our hearts there is a common longing;
deep in our hearts there is a common theme;
deep in our hearts there is a common current,
flowing to freedom like a stream.

4.
Deep in our hearts there is a common vision;
deep in our hearts there is a common song;
deep in our hearts there is a common story,
telling Creation that we are one.
