Music Offering

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)

Congregational Singing: Hallelujah! Praise Ye the Lord
Performed by Lindsay Kyle

Hymn: Everyone is Welcomed Freely 
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1.
Everyone is welcomed freely; everyone can come and pray.  
There is room for all God’s people in the house of God today.  
We confess with pain and sorrow times we’ve closed the door to grace,  
Now we stand here as a witness: All are welcome in this place!

2.
Christ, you turned the tables over when the leaders strived for gain,  
When they crowded out outsiders, seeking wealth and causing pain.  
When we tolerate divisions – walls we build by greed or pride –
God, remind us that your mercy welcomes everyone inside.

3.
Everyone is now invited; turning from them is a sin.  
Refugees, you are our brothers! Wounded sisters, come on in!  
All you rich who bow in serving: Greet and welcome in the poor! No one waits who longs for welcome;  
In God’s house, there’s room and more.

Anthem: Holy Holy Holy, Lord God Almighty

Sung by the Plymouth Choir and Congregation of First-Plymouth Church, Lincoln Nebraska on May 31, 2015 accompanied by the Plymouth Brass and Organist Christopher Marks. YouTube Video

Hymn: My Love Colours Outside the Lines
Performed by Stephen Cocks 

1. 
My love colours outside the lines,  
Exploring paths that few could ever find;  
And takes me into places where I’ve never been before,  
And opens doors to worlds outside the lines.

2.
My Lord colours outside the lines,  
Turns wounds to blessings, water into wine;  
And takes me into places where I’ve never been before  
And opens doors to worlds outside the lines.

We’ll never walk on water if we’re not prepared to drown,  
Body and soul need a soaking from time to time.  
And we’ll never move the gravestones if we’re not prepared to die,  
And realize there are worlds outside the lines.

3. 
My soul longs to colour outside the lines,  
Tear back the curtains, sun, come in and shine;  
I want to walk beyond the boundaries where I’ve never been before,  
Throw open doors to worlds outside the lines.

We’ll never walk on water if we’re not prepared to drown,  
Body and soul need a soaking from time to time.  
And we’ll never move the gravestones if we’re not prepared to die,  
And realize there are worlds outside the lines.

4. 
My soul longs to colour outside the lines,  
Tear back the curtains, sun, come in and shine;  
I want to walk beyond the boundaries where I’ve never been before,  
Throw open doors to worlds outside the lines.

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.
