Entrance Hymn:

                             Amazing Grace.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound        T’was grace that taught my heart to fear,

that saved a wretch like me.                    and grace my fears relieved.

I once was lost but now I’m found,                        How precious did that grace appear

was blind, but now I see.                          the hour I first believed.



                             Father we adore you.

Father, we adore you.                  Jesus, we adore you.       Spirit, we adore you.

Lay our lives before you.                Lay our lives before you.            Lay our lives before you.

How we love you.                         How we love you.              How we love you.


                              Be Still and Know.

Be still and know that I am God.               In thee, O Lord, I put my trust, 

Be still and know that I am God,               In thee, O Lord, I put my trust, 

Be still and know that I am God.               In thee, O Lord, I put my trust.             


I am the Lord that healeth thee, (x3)


                              Bind us Together.

Bind us together, Lord bind us together.   There is only one God.

With cords that cannot be broken            .           There is only one King.

Bind us together, Lord bind us together.   There is only one body.

 Lord, bind us together with love.             That is why we can sing.
