    Build Us Up Lord

    Build us up, Lord, build us up;

    as we guide and teach each other,

    help us to share your love with the world:

    ev'ry sister, ev'ry brother.

     

    Build us up, Lord, build us up;

    set in us a strong foundation.

    Lead us to do your holy will;

    form and shape your new creation.

     

    Growing in Christ,
    we plant seeds for the kingdom;

    we follow in faith what's begun!

    Lord, set in our hearts the pow'r of your word

    to spread the news of your Son!

     

    Build us up, Lord, build us up;

    let our lives reflect your glory.

    Cast away all our doubts and fears;

    help us tell the world your story.

     

    Build us up, Lord, build us up;

    help us bear good fruit for you,

    Lord, give us vision and keep us sure.

    Grant us faith that's steadfast and true.

     

    Growing in Christ,
    we plant seeds for the kingdom;

    we follow in faith what's begun!

    Lord, set in our hearts the pow'r of your word

    to spread the news of your Son!

    SONG OF THE DAY: ELW 763

    My Life Flows On in Endless Song

    My life flows on in endless song;

    above earth's lamentation,

    I catch the sweet, though far-off hymn

    that hails a new creation.

     

    No storm can shake my inmost calm

    while to that Rock I'm clinging.

    Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,

    how can I keep from singing?

     

    Through all the tumult and the strife,

    I hear that music ringing.

    It finds an echo in my soul.

    How can I keep from singing?

     

    No storm can shake my inmost calm

    while to that Rock I'm clinging.

    Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,

    how can I keep from singing?

     

    What though my joys and comforts die?

    The Lord my Saviour liveth.

    What though the darkness gather round?

    Songs in the night he giveth.

     

    No storm can shake my inmost calm

    while to that Rock I'm clinging.

    Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,

    how can I keep from singing?

     

    The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart,

    a fountain ever springing!

    All things are mine since I am his!

    How can I keep from singing

    No storm can shake my inmost calm

    while to that Rock I'm clinging.

    Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,

    how can I keep from singing?

    Precious Lord Take My Hand

    Precious Lord, take my hand,

    Lead me on, let me stand,

    I am tired, I am weak, I am worn.

    Through the storm, through the night,

    Lead me on to the light.

    Take my hand, precious Lord,

    lead me home.

     

    When my way grows drear,

    precious Lord, linger near,

    when my life is almost gone,

    hear my cry, hear my call,

    hold my hand lest I fall.

    Take my hand, precious Lord,

    lead me home.

     

    When the darkness appears

    and the night draws near,

    and the day is past and gone,

    at the river I stand,

    guide my feet, hold my hand.

    Take my hand, precious Lord,

    lead me home.

    GATHERING SONG: ELW 856

    How Great Thou Art

     

    O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder

    consider all the works thy hand hath made,

    I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,

    thy pow'r throughout the universe displayed;

     

    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

     

    When through the woods and forest glades
    I wander,

    I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;

    when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur

    and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze;

     

    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

     

    But when I think that God, his Son not sparing,

    sent him to die, I scarce can take it in,

    that on the cross my burden gladly bearing

    he bled and died to take away my sin;

    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

     

    When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,

    and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!

    Then I shall bow in humble adoration

    and there proclaim, “My God, how great thou art!”

     

    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    For the Fruit of All Creation

    For the fruit of all creation,

    thanks be to God.

    For these gifts to ev'ry nation,

    thanks be to God.

     

    For the plowing, sowing, reaping,

    silent growth while we are sleeping,

    future needs in earth's safekeeping,

    thanks be to God.

     

    In the just reward of labour,

    God's will is done.

    In the help we give our neighbour,

    God's will is done.

    In our worldwide task of caring

    for the hungry and despairing,

    in the harvests we are sharing,

    God's will is done.

     

    For the harvests of the Spirit,

    thanks be to God.

    For the good we all inherit,

    thanks be to God.

     

    For the wonders that astound us,

    for the truths that still confound us,

    most of all, that love has found us,

    thanks be to God.

    In the Singing

     

    In the singing, in the silence,

    in the hands expectant, open,

    in the blessing, in the breaking,

    in your presence at this table,

               

    Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ,

    be the wine of grace;

    Jesus, Christ, Jesus Christ,

    be the bread of peace.

     

    In the question, in the answer,

    in the moment of acceptance,

    in the heart's cry, in the healing,

    in the circle of your people,

     

    Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ,

    be the wine of grace;

    Jesus, Christ, Jesus Christ,

    be the bread of peace.

    Friends in High Places

     

    I was in need and I needed a friend

    I was alone and I needed a hand

    I was going down but someone rescued me

    My God cares too much to say

    His mercies are new everyday

    I get down to pray and then help is on its way

     

    I walk by faith and not by sight

    If things go wrong, it’ll be alright

    Cause someone greater is watching over me

    My God cares too much to say

    His mercies are new everyday

    I get down to pray and then help is on its way

     

    Now in faith, I believe

    I got everything I need

    I walk by faith and not by what I see

    I got friends in high places

    I’ve got someone I can call

    And I got someone watching over me

     

    I walk by faith and not by sight

    If things go wrong, it’ll be alright

    Cause someone greater is watching over me

    My God cares too much to say

    His mercies are new everyday

    I get down to pray and then help is on its way

     

    My God cares too much to say

    His mercies are new everyday

    I get down to pray and then help is on its way

    Lead me, Guide Me

     

    Lead me, guide me, along the way

    For if You lead me I cannot not stray

    Lord let me walk, each day with Thee

    Lead me oh Lord lead me

     

    I am weak and I need Thy strength and power

    To help me over my weakest hour

    Help me through the darkness Thy face to see

    SONG OF THE DAY: ELW 785

    When Peace Like a River

    When peace like a river attendeth my way,

    when sorrows like sea billows roll,

    whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,

    it is well, it is well with my soul.

     

    It is well (it is well)

    with my soul, (with my soul,)

    it is well, it is well with my soul.

     

    Though Satan should buffet, though trials
    should come,

    let this blest assurance control,

    that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

    and has shed his own blood for my soul.

     

    It is well (it is well)

    with my soul, (with my soul,)

    it is well, it is well with my soul.

     

    He lives--oh, the bliss of this glorious thought;

    my sin, not in part, but the whole,

    is nailed to his cross and I bear it no more.

    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

     

    It is well (it is well)

    with my soul, (with my soul,)

    it is well, it is well with my soul.

     

    Lord, hasten the day when our faith shall be sight,

    the clouds be rolled back as a scroll,

    the trumpet shall sound and the Lord shall descend;

    even so it is well with my soul.

     

    It is well (it is well)

    with my soul, (with my soul,)

    it is well, it is well with my soul.

    Waking, sleeping, I am with you, you are my own.

    In my love’s baptismal river

    I have made you mine forever.

    Go, my children, with my blessing, you are my own.”

     

    “Go, my children, sins forgiven, at peace and pure.

    Here you learned how much I love you, what I can cure.

    Here you heard my dear Son’s story,

    here you touched him, saw his glory.

    Go, my children, sins forgiven, at peace and pure.”

    Grow in love and love by serving, joyful and free.

    Here my Spirit’s power filled you,

    here my tender comfort stilled you.

    Go, my children, fed and nourished, joyful and free.”

    Just a Closer Walk with Thee

     

    Just a closer walk with thee,

    grant it, Jesus, is my plea;

    daily walking close to thee,

    let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

     

    I am weak but thou art strong:

    Jesus, keep me from all wrong;

    I'll be satisfied as long

    as I walk, let me walk close to thee.

     

    Just a closer walk with thee,

    grant it, Jesus, is my plea;

    daily walking close to thee,

    let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

     

    Through this world of toil and snares,

    if I falter, Lord, who cares?

    Who with me my burden shares?

    None but thee, dear Lord, none but thee.

     

    Just a closer walk with thee,

    grant it, Jesus, is my plea;

    daily walking close to thee,

    let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

    When my feeble life is o'er,

    time for me will be no more;

    guide me gently, safely o'er

    to thy kingdom shore, to thy shore.

     

    Just a closer walk with thee,

    grant it, Jesus, is my plea;

    daily walking close to thee,

    let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

    Come, Join the Dance of Trinity


    Come, join the dance of Trinity,

    before all worlds begun—

    the interweaving of the Three,

    the Father, Spirit, Son.

    The universe of space and time

    did not arise by chance,

    but as the Three, in love and hope,

    made room within their dance.

     

    Come, see the face of Trinity,

    newborn in Bethlehem;

    then bloodied by a crown of thorns

    outside Jerusalem.

    The dance of Trinity is meant

    for human flesh and bone;

    when fear confines the dance in death,

    God rolls away the stone.

     

    Come, speak aloud of Trinity,

    as wind and tongues of flame

    set people free at Pentecost

    to tell the Saviour's name.

    We know the yoke of sin and death,

    our necks have worn it smooth;

    go tell the world of weight and woe

    that we are free to move!


    Within the dance of Trinity,

    before all worlds begun,

    we sing the praises of the Three,

    the Father, Spirit, Son.

    Let voices rise and interweave,

    by love and hope set free,

    to shape in song this joy, this life:

    the dance of Trinity.

    Spirit of Gentleness

     

    Spirit, Spirit of gentleness,

    blow through the wilderness calling and free;

    Spirit, Spirit of restlessness,

    stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea.

     

    You moved on the waters, you called to the deep,

    then you coaxed up the mountains from the valleys of sleep;

    and over the eons you called to each thing:

    "Awake from your slumbers and rise on your wings."

     

    Spirit, Spirit of gentleness,

    blow through the wilderness calling and free;

    Spirit, Spirit of restlessness,

    stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea.

     

    You swept through the desert, you stung with the sand,

    and you goaded your people with a law and a land;

    and when they were blinded with idols and lies,

    then you spoke through your prophets to open
    their eyes.

     

    Spirit, Spirit of gentleness,

    blow through the wilderness calling and free;

    Spirit, Spirit of restlessness,

    stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea.

     

    You sang in a stable, you cried from a hill,

    then you whispered in silence when the whole world was still;

    and down in the city you called once again,

    when you blew through your people on the rush of the wind.

     

    Spirit, Spirit of gentleness,

    blow through the wilderness calling and free;

    Spirit, Spirit of restlessness,

    stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea.

     

    You call from tomorrow, you break ancient schemes.

    From the bondage of sorrow all the captives dream dreams;

    our women see visions, our men clear their eyes.

    With bold new decisions your people arise.

     

    Spirit, Spirit of gentleness,

    blow through the wilderness calling and free;

    Spirit, Spirit of restlessness,

    stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea.

    O living Breath of God,

    Holy Spirit, breathe in us as we pray.

    COMMUNION SONG 2: ELW 481

    Come to the Table

    Come to the table of mercy,

    prepared with the wine and the bread.

    All who are hungry and thirsty,

    come, and your souls will be fed.

     

    Come at the Lord's invitation;

    receive from his nail-scarred hand.

    Eat of the bread of salvation;

    drink of the blood of the Lamb.

    SENDING SONG: ELW 400

    God of Tempest, God of Whirlwind

    God of tempest, God of whirlwind,

    as on Pentecost descend!

    Drive us out from sheltered comfort;

    past these walls your people send!

    Sweep us into costly service,

    there with Christ to bear the cross,

    there with Christ to bear the cross!

     

    God of blazing, God of burning,

    all that blocks your purpose, purge!

    Through your church, Christ's living Body,

    let your flaming Spirit surge!

    Where deceit conceals injustice,

    kindle us to speak your truth,

    kindle us to speak your truth!

     

    God of earthquake, God of thunder,

    shake us loose from lethargy!

    Break the chains of sin asunder,

    for earth's healing set us free!

    Crumble walls that still divide us;

    make us one in Christ our Lord,

    make us one in Christ our Lord!

     

    God of passion, God unsleeping,

    stir in us love's restlessness!

    Where the people cry in anguish,

    may we share your heart's distress.

    Rouse us from content with evil;

    claim us for your kingdom's work,

    claim us for your kingdom's work!

    God is Here!

    God is here! As we your people

    meet to offer praise and prayer,

    may we find in fuller measure

    what it is in Christ we share.

    Here, as in the world around us,

    all our varied skills and arts

    wait the coming of the Spirit

    into open minds and hearts.

     

    Here are symbols to remind us

    of our lifelong need of grace;

    here are table, font, and pulpit;

    here the cross has central place.

    Here in honesty of preaching,

    here in silence, as in speech,

    here, in newness and renewal,

    God the Spirit comes to each.

     

    Here our children find a welcome

    in the Shepherd's flock and fold;

    here as bread and wine are taken,

    Christ sustains us as of old.

    Here the servants of the Servant

    seek in worship to explore

    what it means in daily living

    to believe and to adore.


    Lord of all, of church and kingdom,

    in an age of change and doubt,

    keep us faithful to the gospel;

    help us work your purpose out.

    Here, in this day's dedication,

    all we have to give, receive;

    we, who cannot live without you,

    we adore you! We believe!

    the unity of heart and mind

    is like to that above.

     

    Before our Father's throne

    we pour our ardent prayers;

    our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,

    We share our mutual woes,

    our mutual burdens bear,

    and often for each other flows

    What can wash away my sin?

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

    What can make me whole again?

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

     

    Oh! Precious is the flow

    That makes me white as snow;

    No other fount I know,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

     

    For my pardon, this I see,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

    For my cleansing this my plea,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

     

    Oh! Precious is the flow

    That makes me white as snow;

    No other fount I know,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

     

    Nothing can for sin atone,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

    Naught of good that I have done,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

     

    Oh! Precious is the flow

    That makes me white as snow;

    No other fount I know,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

     

    This is all my hope and peace,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

    This is all my righteousness,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


    Oh! Precious is the flow

    That makes me white as snow;

    No other fount I know,

    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    SENDING SONG: ELW 855

    Crown Him with Many Crowns


    Crown him with many crowns,

    the Lamb upon his throne;

    hark, how the heav'nly anthem drowns

    all music but its own.

    Awake, my soul, and sing

    of him who died for thee,

    and hail him as thy matchless king

    through all eternity.

     

    Crown him the virgin's Son,

    the God incarnate born,

    whose arm those crimson trophies won

    which now his brow adorn;

    fruit of the mystic rose,

    yet of that rose the stem,

    the root whence mercy ever flows,

    the babe of Bethlehem.

     

    Crown him the Lord of love--

    behold his hands and side,

    rich wounds, yet visible above,

    in beauty glorified.

    No angels in the sky

    can fully bear that sight,

    but downward bend their burning eyes

    at mysteries so bright.


    Crown him the Lord of life,

    who triumphed o'er the grave

    and rose victorious in the strife

    for those he came to save.

    His glories now we sing,

    who died and rose on high,

    who died, eternal life to bring,

    and lives that death may die.

     

    Crown him the Lord of years,

    the potentate of time,

    creator of the rolling spheres,

    ineffably sublime.

    All hail, Redeemer, hail!

    For thou hast died for me;

    thy praise and glory shall not fail

    throughout eternity.

    I Come with Joy

     

    I come with joy, a child of God,

    forgiven, loved, and free,

    the life of Jesus to recall

    in love laid down for me,

    in love laid down for me.

     

    I come with Christians far and near

    to find, as all are fed,

    the new community of love

    in Christ's communion bread,

    in Christ's communion bread.

     

    As Christ breaks bread and bids us share,

    each proud division ends.

    The love that made us, makes us one,

    and strangers now are friends,

    and strangers now are friends.

     

    The Spirit of the risen Christ,

    unseen, but ever near,

    is in such friendship better known,

    alive among us here,

    alive among us here.

     

    Together met, together bound

    by all that God has done,

    we'll go with joy, to give the world

    the love that makes us one,

    the love that makes us one.

    What a Friend We have in Jesus

    What a friend we have in Jesus,

    all our sins and griefs to bear!

    What a privilege to carry

    ev'rything to God in prayer!

    Oh, what peace we often forfeit;

    oh, what needless pain we bear--

    all because we do not carry

    ev'rything to God in prayer!

               

    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 ev'ry weakness--

    take it to the Lord in prayer.

     

    Are we weak and heavy-laden,

    cumbered with a load of care?

    Precious Savior, still our refuge--

    take it to the Lord in prayer.

    Do your friends despise, forsake you?

    Take it to the Lord in prayer.

    In his arms he'll take and shield you;

    you will find a solace there.
