HYMN OF PROMISE

In the bulb, there is a flower

In the seed, an apple tree

In cocoons, a hidden promise

Butterflies will soon be free

In the cold and snow of winter

There’s a spring that waits to be

Unrevealed until its season

Something God alone can see

There’s a song in every silence

Seeking word and melody

There’s a dawn in every darkness

Bringing hope to you and me

From the past will come the future

What it holds, a mystery

Unrevealed until its season

Something God alone can see

In our end is our beginning

In our time, infinity

In our doubt, there is believing

In our life, eternity

In our death, a resurrection

At the last, a victory

Unrevealed until its season

Something God alone can see

The APOSTLES’ CREED

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, Our Lord.

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary.

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, dead, and buried.

the third day he rose from the dead.

he ascended into heaven,

and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

THIS IS MY FATHERS WORLD

This is my Father’s world,

and to my listening ears

all nature sings, and round me rings

the music of the spheres.

This is my Father’s world:

I rest me in the thought

of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;

his hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world,

the birds their carols raise,

the morning light, the lily white,

declare their maker’s praise.

This is my Father’s world:

he shines in all that’s fair;

in the rustling grass I hear him pass;

he speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father’s world.

O let me ne’er forget

that though the wrong seems oft so strong,

God is the ruler yet.

This is my Father’s world:

why should my heart be sad?

The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!

God reigns; let the earth be glad!

SHALOM

Shalom to you now, Shalom my friends,

May God’s full mercies bless you my friend.

In all your living, and through your loving,

Christ be your shalom, Christ be your shalom.
