WORSHIP SERVICE

TODAY’S HYMNS

Hymn #21 For the Beauty of the Earth

    For the beauty of the earth, for the splendor of the skies,

    for the love which from our birth over and around us lies:

    Source of all, to thee we raise this, our hymn of grateful praise.

    For the joy of ear and eye, for the heart and mind’s delight,

    for the mystic harmony linking sense to sound and sight:

    Source of all, to thee we raise this, our hymn of grateful praise.

    For the wonder of each hour of the day and of the night,

    hill and vale and tree and flower, sun and moon and stars of light:

    Source of all, to thee we raise this, our hymn of grateful praise.

    For the joy of human care, sister, brother, parent, child,

    for the kinship we all share, for all gentle thoughts and mild:

    Source of all, to thee we raise this, our hymn of grateful praise.

Hymn # 83

    Winds be still.

    Storm clouds pass and silence come.

    Peace grace this time with harmony.

    Fly, bird of hope, and shine, light of love,

    and in calm let all find tranquility.

    Bird fly high.

    Lift our gaze toward distant view.

    Help us to sense life’s mystery.

    Fly high and far, and lead us each to see

    how we move through the winds of eternity.

    Light shine in.

    Luminate our inward view.

    Help us to see with clarity.

    Shine bright and true so we may join our songs

    in new sounds that become full symphony.

Hymn #298 Wake Now My Senses

    Wake, now, my senses, and hear the earth call;

    feel the deep power of being in all;

    keep, with the web of creation your vow,

    giving, receiving as love shows us how.

    Wake, now, my reason, reach out to the new;

    join with each pilgrim who quests for the true;

    honor the beauty and wisdom of time;

    suffer thy limit, and praise the sublime.

    Wake, now, compassion, give heed to the cry;

    voices of suffering fill the wide sky;

    take as your neighbor both stranger and friend,

    praying and striving their hardship to end.

    Wake, now, my conscience, with justice thy guide;

    join with all people whose rights are denied;

    take not for granted a privileged place;

    God’s love embraces the whole human race.

    Wake, now, my vision of ministry clear;

    brighten my pathway with radiance here;

    mingle my calling with all who will share;

    work toward a planet transformed by our care.
