Hymns

Entrance Hymn
One Spirit, One Church (K Keil, 1990)

We are a pilgrim people.
We are the Church of God.
A fam’ly of believers, disciples of the Lord.
United in one spirit, ignited by the fire.
Still burning through the ages, still present in our lives.

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
and in our hearts take up Thy rest;
come with Thy grace and heav’nly aid
to fill the hearts which Thou hast made.

Praise be to thee, Father and Son,
and Holy Spirit, with them One.
And may the Son on us bestow
All gifts that from the Spirit flow.
Amen!

Offertory Hymn
By The Waking Of Our Hearts (R Manalo, 1997)

By the waking of our hearts, by the stirring of our souls,
may the Spirit of God abide and bring us together in Christ.

Come, O Spirit, from above, come from your celestial heights.
Come with your blessed light so radiant bright.

By the waking of our hearts, by the stirring of our souls,
may the Spirit of God abide and bring us together in Christ.

Come, O Saviour of the poor, come, O source of gifts ensured.
Come with your gentle hope, so wondrous and pure.

By the waking of our hearts, by the stirring of our souls,
may the Spirit of God abide and bring us together in Christ.

Communion Hymn
Spirit and Grace (R Manalo, 2006)

In the bread, blessed, broken and shared,
Christ is our life, whose presence we bear.
Come, O Spirit, make your grace revealed in this holy meal.

Spirit and grace, here in this meal;
you are the wind that breathes through the field.
Gather the wheat and form us in Christ.
Come, be our source and breath of life.

In the bread, blessed, broken and shared,
Christ is our life, whose presence we bear.
Come, O Spirit, make your grace revealed in this holy meal.

Spirit of God, sending us forth;
we spread your wisdom throughout all the earth.
Gather the nations and form us in Christ.
Come, be the presence in our lives.

Recessional Hymn
The Spirit Sends Us Forth (D Dufner, 1993)

The Spirit sends us forth to serve;
We go in Jesus’ name.
To bring glad tidings to the poor,
God’s favor to proclaim.

We go to comfort those who mourn
And set the burdened free;
Where hope is dim, to share a dream
And help the blind to see.

We go to be the hands of Christ,
To scatter joy-like seed.
And all our days, to cherish life,
To do the loving deed.

Then let us go to serve in peace,
The gospel to proclaim.
God’s spirit has empower’d us;
We go in Jesus’ name.
